Never be afraid to be yourself, CGs! Take a cue from Ellen Page, who revealed on Valentine's Day that she is gay.

Since her announcement, Anna Kendrick and many other stars have sent messages of praise to her for coming out.

The Inception star announced she is gay on Friday (February 14, 2014), prompting many to show their love and appreciation for her brave move.

Anna, who starred alongside Ellen in Juno, wrote on Twitter: "Mad mad mad mad mad mad crazy love and praise for @EllenPage today. Congrats to you, you light, talent, and beauty.(sic)"

Ricky Martin, who famously came out in 2010, tweeted: "Very beautiful Ellen Page!!! I'm very happy for you!!! You are free! (sic)"

He tweeted: "I just watched Ellen Page come out! Wow! What a speech! Congrats!! (sic)"

Ellen made her announcement at Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive event in Las Vegas, Nevada with a passionate statement.

She said: "I'm here today because I'm gay. And because maybe I can make a difference—to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.

"Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out.

"My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."
