Juno star Ellen Page says she became very nervous while making her coming out speech.

The 27-year-old actress had came out as gay in February in a moving and personal speech delivered at a conference held at Las Vegas to promote the welfare of LGBT youth, reported New York Daily News.

Considering the speech making part as one of her toughest moment, she said "(It was ) the most nervous I've ever been in my life, for sure," Page said on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

"I think my biggest fear of doing it was even just having a panic attack quite frankly. But you know, I was so ready to do it and... So excited to do it," she added.

DeGeneres praised Page for her coming out speech.

"I am so proud of you for coming out and I am happy for you. I know what a scary thing that is. Your speech was incredible. I just thought it was the most brilliantly written speech," she said.
