Elliot wrote in Pageboy about how he "fell for" Kate while she was dating "the lovely and talented Max Minghella." The House of Cards alum dated Max between 2010–2014.

As fans know, Elliot came out publicly as gay in 2014, and trans in 2020. He shared in his book that he was filming X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014 when his romance with Kate took place.

Incredibly, Max supported his girlfriend's exploring a relationship with Elliot. "I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can,” is what Kate told Elliot, according to his book.

“I think my relationship, or whatever you want to call it with Kate, very much encapsulates a certain dynamic that I consistently found myself in, which was falling for people that — I think a lot of us do this — who aren't fully available," Elliot relatably wrote in Pageboy. "And the sort of safety in that and the highs and the lows and the serotonin bump, and then it goes away."
