Tropes expressed or embodied by Ellen Page include
- Ambiguously Gay: When she first became well-known, rumors abounded (and still abound every now and then) that she was gay, largely apropos of not much. She's never confirmed or denied it, but she did poke fun at the idea in a sketch on Saturday Night Live.
- Brainy Brunette
- Cannot Tell a Joke: the basis of this video.
- Celebrity Endorsement: Ellen gets paid to promote... computer networking products for Cisco in a campaign portraying a Grass Is Greener little town as the new tech hub of the universe (which just happens to be in her home province of Nova Scotia).
- Dawson Casting: Almost always plays a teenager, despite already being in her twenties. Understandable however given that she actually looks considerably younger than she is. Super and Inception have had her playing characters in their early twenties, which she is.
- Deadpan Snarker: Frequently.
- Dyeing for Your Art: She had her head shaved on camera for Mouth To Mouth, and starved herself to play a torture victim for An American Crime.
- Fake American: Anyone remember when she last played a Canadian?
- Forehead of Doom: Bounced a soccer ball on her forehead while on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, after admitting she was extremely self-conscious of its size.
- Older Than She Looks
- One of Us: She likes comics, especially Indie ones (notably I Never Liked You by Chester Brown).
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Totally owned the Juggernaut. And did you see what she did to Nite Owl?
- The Stoic: In interviews on her environmental work, she always speaks in an extremely calm, serious, almost professorial manner.
- Teens Are Short: The reason for her Typecasting below. She looks on the bright side, though:
I'm a total shrimp, which makes me look younger. I'll be able to stay in that area longer, which is good, because there's more competition in your 20s.
- Tomboy: Many of her characters are like this, and she, herself, used to play with action figures and climb trees in her childhood.
- Typecasting: For quite some time, Ellen Page was typecast as an atypical, rebellious teenage girl with an attitude. However, her recent work (Peacock and particularly Inception) indicates a shift to more varied roles.
