Actor Elliot Page, formally known as Ellen Page, has filed for divorce from wife, Emma Portner. The couple, issued a joint statement to announce the end of their three-year marriage and revealed that they had separated last year.

“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer,” the Canadian couple said in a joint statement.

“We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends,” they added.

Page, the 33-year-old Oscar-nominated star of ‘Juno’, ‘Inception’ and ‘The Umbrella Academy’,”and Portner, a 26-year-old choreographer and dance teacher, announced their marriage early in 2018 after only having hinted at their relationship on social media.

Page and Portner have been very public about their love for each other, including once posing topless and kissing each other in an Instagram post.

Portner was vocal in her support of Page when the actor came out as transgender in December, an announcement that was widely greeted as a watershed moment for the trans community in Hollywood.
