Ellen Page admits the support she has received since coming out has "blown her mind".

The 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' actress revealed she is gay at the Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive conference in February and admits she expected to be subjected to some "vicious" comments afterwards.

She told told 'Access Hollywood': "I've experienced basically nothing but support, it's actually really kind of blown my mind.

"I thought there would be a lot more viciousness."

The 27-year-old star admitted she was "afraid" to make the revelation because of the expected backlash, and she thinks it is "beautiful" so many people have had kind things to say.

She said: "Maybe that's because you're afraid and for some reason you have this perspective, because of probably your own anxiety.

"So to me, that's been the most beautiful thing, because it's so indicative of the change that's happened and the growth that's happening.

"For me, it's been basically nothing but support."

Meanwhile, Ellen has promised fans won't be disappointed by the new 'X-Men' movie, in which she plays Kitty Pryde/ Shadowcat.

She said: "I loved it. I was totally blown away, totally on the edge of my seat and also, really moved, you know, I found it really emotional. So for me, it hit all the marks."
