Ellen Page Slams Chris Pratt for Attending 'Infamously Anti-LGBTQ Church'

Friday February 8, 2019

Ellen is taking issue with Chris Pratt on social media.

Pratt appeared on "The Late Show" to promote his new movie "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" Thursday night and spoke with host Stephen Colbert about his recent diet inspired by the Bible. The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star identifies as non-denominational Christian but is a member of the megachurch Hillsong, most notably the same church Justin Bieber attends.

Though a number of celebs have gone to Hillsong, like Selena Gomez, the church's global pastor in 2015 Brian Houston said on Hillsong's website he "holds traditional Christian thought on gay lifestyles and gay marriage" adding that "marriage is between a man and woman." Nevertheless, he says the church "welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles."

Page, who is openly lesbian, took to Twitter after Pratt's "Late Show" appearance, to call out Pratt and his apparent support of Hillsong.

Pratt has not responded to Page.

Page recently made headlines after appearing on "The Late Show," calling out Vice President Mike Pence for his anti-LGBTQ views.
