Elliot Page Proudly Posts First Shirtless Photo After Top Surgery

Looking good, looking good! Elliot Page shared his first shirtless photo on Instagram since coming out as transgender last December.

The Photo

On Monday, the 34-year-old actor posted a photo where he smiled and posed in swimming trunks by the poolside. It is the “Umbrella Academy” actor’s first revealing photo after undergoing top surgery.

“Trans bb’s first swim trunks,” Page wrote, accompanied by “#transjoy” and “#transisbeautiful” hashtags.

The photo garnered over 2.1 million likes on Instagram and praise from  both fans and celebrity followers. Singer Miley Cyrus commented “Hot” under the “Juno” actor’s Instagram post.

Many celebrity friends commented on Page’s impressive abs, including actor Justin Cornwell, who is reportedly starring in the upcoming season of “Umbrella Academy.”

“Dude I see why you crushed me on that workout,” said Cornwell.

While “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev also complimented Page, saying he looks “amazing… and most of all happy.”

Interview with Oprah

Before posting the photo, Page described his top surgery as a “freeing experience” during his April interview with Oprah Winfrey. He considers it “life-saving” and now feels more comfortable in his body.

“Not only has it been life-changing for me, I do believe it’s been life-saving and it’s the case for so many people,” he said.

When asked what about his transition brought him the most joy, the actor said it’s the small things that bring him the most comfort, like touching his chest.

“It’s, you know, getting out of the shower and the towel is around your waist,” he said. “You’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like ‘There I am.’”

“From where I’m sitting now, all I know is the degree of comfort, sense of home, ability to be present, feels so profound and life-changing,” he said. “And, so what I look forward to is getting to move through the world in that way.”

Page’s interview with Winfrey is available to stream on Apple TV.
