The headline suggests some salacious, juicy gossip, but honestly: It’s anything but. It’s mostly sweet. In Elliot Page’s new memoir, Pageboy, he reveals that — after he came out as gay in 2014 — he explored a relationship with Kate Mara, who was dating Max Minghella at the time.

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

This is no cheating scandal, however, as Minghella was supportive of their relationship. In fact, Mara — who has read Page’s book — told Page, “I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can.”

“I think my relationship, or whatever you want to call it with Kate,” Page added, “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.

Page and Mara are still close, according to his book. “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.”

(Related, but according to Lainey, Mara also briefly left Minghella in 2013 for Justin Long before returning to Minghella.)

In the memoir, Elliot Page also reveals that Catherine Keener, Kristin Wiig, and Alia Shawkat helped him through some difficult times and that he also dated an unnamed closeted female celebrity for two years.

Elliot’s memoir, Pageboy will be released on Tuesday.
