The two of them had showed up at the 11th Annual LACMA Art and Film Gala in Los Angeles as each other’s date. Rumors of their relationship were even fueled by their Instagram posts at the time.
Mae had posted a mirror selfie alongside Elliot with the caption: "My King took me out."
Though many believed that the two of them were involved at the time, Mae has since set the record straight. In a March 2023 interview with Xtra Magazine, Mae confirmed that they and Elliot are simply friends, though their were flattered that the rumors were circulating at all.
"I'm still so honored if anyone speculates about my love life," Mae admitted to Xtra. "I'm also particularly honored that anyone would think that Elliot and I were dating, so that was kind of fun."
Who has Elliot Page dated in the past?
In 2006, rumors about Elliot dating his co-star Ben Foster from X-Men: The Last Stand made their rounds. Nothing was ever confirmed at the time, though. In 2008, more rumors surfaced about Elliot having a fling with a British actor named Sam Riley. Whether or not they really dated is still a mystery.

From 2015 to 2017, he was in an official relationship with American artist Samantha Thomas. Beyond all those rumors, Elliot did actually marry a dancer and choreographer named Emma Portner in 2017. By 2020, they decided that they wanted to separate with Elliot officially filing for divorce. Their divorce was finalized in 2021, but they parted ways on amicable terms (based on a joint statement they posted on social media).
In Pageboy, Elliot wrote extensively about his relationship with fellow famous Hollywood actor Kate Mara. According to his memoir, Elliot "fell for" Kate while she was dating Max Minghella between 2010 and 2014. They began seeing each other in 2014, with Elliot having been very much infatuated with Kate throughout their relationship.
He wrote in his memoir that their time together "very much encapsulates a certain dynamic that [he] constantly found [himself] in, which was falling for people ... who aren't fully available."
As of this writing, the two of them are no longer dating, but they remain close friends regardless.
