Elliot Page discusses his relationship with Kate Mara in the past. The “Umbrella Academy” actor, 36, reveals in his upcoming memoir “Pageboy” (Flatiron, 288 pages, out Tuesday) that he dated the “House of Cards” actress, 40, during the filming of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” according to an excerpt from the memoir published in People on Friday and confirmed by USA TODAY. As a teenage trans actor in Hollywood, Page’s long-awaited memoir takes readers on a voyage of self-discovery.
Kate Mara was the first person I fell in love with after my heart was shattered, Page writes in his memoir. “At the time, she was dating the charming and talented Max Minghella.” Page stated in an interview with People that Mara “has read the book” and that Minghella encouraged Mara to explore her affection for Page.
Page recalled Mara saying to him, in an interview with individuals, “I never thought I could love two people, but now I know I can.” “This was right after I’d come out as gay, and it was a time of exploration and also heartbreak,” Page explained to People.
“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 who aren’t fully available — I think a lot of us do this.” And the sense of safety in it, as well as the highs and lows and the serotonin spike, which then fades.”
The page also told People that he and Mara are still friends, and the two played lovers in the 2017 film “My Days of Mercy.” In 2017, Mara married English actor Jamie Bell, becoming the stepmother to Bell’s kid with his ex-wife Evan Rachel Wood.
Mara and Bell subsequently had two children, a girl in 2019 and a son in 2022. “I think the love and care we have for each other is something very special,” he remarked. “Separate from the intimacy that I write about.”

When Kara conceived again, the couple experienced a distinct emotion, as Kara stated, “It was strange, this bitter or delicious sort of… Mara elaborated, “I was ecstatic, but also sad that we weren’t as ecstatic as we were the first time, as it was evident that the dynamic was very different.”
