Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of making homophobic and misogynistic comments

The actress claims the director outed her on the set of "X-Men: The Last Stand."

Page said that Ratner made degrading comments to other women on set too.

"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. This man, who had cast me in the film, started our months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea. He 'outed' me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic," Page wrote. "This public, aggressive outing left me with long standing feelings of shame, one of the most destructive results of homophobia. Making someone feel ashamed of who they are is a cruel manipulation, designed to oppress and repress. I was robbed of more than autonomy over my ability to define myself. Ratner’s comment replayed in my mind many times over the years as I encountered homophobia and coped with feelings of reluctance and uncertainty about the industry and my future in it."

Page also claims that during filming, she was reprimanded for refusing to wear a T-shirt that said "Team Ratner," though the director "was not being punished nor fired for the blatantly homophobic and abusive behavior we all witnessed."

A representative for Ratner did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment on Page's allegations.

Ratner's attorney, Martin Singer, released a statement last week slamming those actresses' allegations as "outrageous" and "derogatory" and said Ratner "vehemently denies" their claims. Martin also sued Kohler on Ratner's behalf, alleging defamation.

Kohler's attorney, Robbie Kaplan, told ABC News that she believes the lawsuit filed against her client was part of an attempt by Ratner to "send a message to other women."

"We're here to send a very strong message that it's not going to stop Melanie from speaking," Kaplan said. "And it's not going to stop other women from speaking."
