Elliot Page cried tears of joy in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey in which he opens up about his life since coming out as transgender.

The interview, which will be released on Friday, is Oscar-nominated star Page's first on-camera interview since coming out as Transgender in early December

Page came out in a twitter post saying "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot."

Winfrey asks in one clip what has brought him the most joy since coming out, to which Page revealed that it's the little things.

"It's, you know, getting out of the shower and the towel is around your waist, and you're looking at yourself in the mirror and you're just like 'There I am,'" said Page. "And I'm not having the moment where I'm panicked...It's being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body probably for the first time."

"What was your 'Aha' moment," Winfrey asks in another clip, referring to when being transgender clicked.

Page responded by saying he had been expressing the feeling to those around him for a while, but felt it was time to come out to be comfortable with himself and felt it was "imperative" to come out in the face of backlash against trans people, and trans youth.
