Actor Elliot Page has filed for divorce from wife Emma Portner after three years of marriage. According to Page Six, the 33-year-old actor filed for divorce in a Manhattan court.
"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer," the pair said in a joint statement on Tuesday. "We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends," the couple added.
Their split comes over three years after they announced their surprise marriage just after New Year's in 2018. Portner was vocal in her support of Elliot when the actor came out as transgender in December.
Page, the 33-year-old Oscar-nominated actor, came out as transgender in 2020. That decision was widely praised by his many fans and fellow actors.
Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, said at the time that he could not "begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self".
Page received international acclaim for starring as a pregnant teenager in the 2007 film Juno. Other major films include Inception and the X-Men series, while the actor has more recently starred in Netflix series The Umbrella Academy.
