Pageboy: Elliot Page’s secret relationship with Kate Mara

Elliot Page Memoir Pageboy

Elliot Page reveals in his memoir Pageboy that he had a relationship with Kate Mara during her relationship with British actor Max Minghella.

He told PEOPLE about the complicated relationship ahead of the release of the book.

“The first person I fell for after my heart was broken was Kate Mara. She had a boyfriend at the time, the lovely and talented Max Minghella.”

Elliot Page says the romance happened during the filming of 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Elliot writes that Kate Mara told him, “I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can.”

He goes on, “This was right after I’d come out as gay and it was a time of exploration and also heartbreak. I think my relationship, or whatever you want to call it with Kate, very much encapsulates a certain dynamic that I consistently found myself in, which was falling for people that — I think a lot of us do this — who aren’t fully available. And the sort of safety in that and the highs and the lows and the serotonin bump, and then it goes away.

“And I think that is definitely a pattern in my life.”

Elliot says that he and Kate Mara remain close. She has read Pageboy and will appear with him at a book event in June.

“I think the love and care that we have for each other is its very own special thing. Separate from the intimacy that I write about.”

He also says Max Minghella know of the relationship between him and Kate Mara and supported Mara exploring her feelings for Page.
