Ellen Page took a swipe at Chris Pratt on Twitter Friday after he spoke about his religion on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.
Pratt, 39, who recently did a 21-day fast through his church, attends services at LA’s Zoe Church and Hillsong, which is also frequented by the likes of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.
After seeing The Hollywood Reporter‘s tweet about Pratt’s interview on Colbert, Page, who is openly gay, mentioned the actor’s church was “infamously anti-LGBTQ.”
Hillsong’s leader Brian Houston previously wrote on the church’s official website that although the institution “welcomes all people,” he added that he “does not affirm the gay lifestyle.”
He explained at the time, “If you are gay, are you welcome at Hillsong Church? Of course! You are welcome to attend, worship with us, and participate as a congregation member with the assurance that you are personally included and accepted within our community.”
“But (this is where it gets vexing), can you take an active leadership role? No. This won’t make everyone happy and to some, this stance may even be seen as hypocritical. We are a gay welcoming church but we are not a church that affirms a gay lifestyle.”
ET Canada has reached out to Pratt’s rep for comment.
Page’s comments come after she spoke to Stephen Colbert about the apparent homophobic and racist attack on actor Jussie Smollett.
She said of her own experience as a young actress growing up in the industry: “In terms of the level of misogyny and homophobia I’ve dealt with, it’s been really unfortunate. It was very hard for me and I dealt with a lot of stuff that was totally normalized since really young.”
On Saturday, Page followed up her earlier comment with an even more pointed jab at Pratt.
“If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed,” she wrote. “Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop.”
