Page accused Ratner of being “blatantly homophobic” toward her on the set of 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand by asking a woman ten years her senior to “f*** her” to “make her realise” she was gay in front of the feature's cast and crew. Page was 18-years-old at the time.
The Juno actress, who came out as gay in 2014, has now had her claims backed up by co-star - True Blood's Anna Paquin - who told her Twitter followers she was privy to the incident.
“I was there,” she wrote, before addressing questions as to why she didn't highlight Ratner's behaviour at the time.
“If you can't think of the glaringly obvious reason I remained silent then perhaps you've forgotten that I've been in this victim grooming industry since before I hit puberty,” the Kiwi actress - who won an Oscar aged 11 for The Piano - wrote.
Page's Facebook post, in which she claimed Ratner “outed” her as gay - said: “I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. I felt violated when this happened.
“I looked down at my feet, didn’t say a word and watched as no one else did either."
Ratner has had his ties cut with Warner Bros after six allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced in The Los Angeles Times including one by Olivia Munn who claims that he masturbated in front of her in his trailer when she went to deliver a meal on the set of his 2004 film After the Sunset.
