Elliot Page, formerly Ellen Page, claimed he was “groomed” by a male movie director when he was just a (female) teenager.

In his new memoir, “Pageboy,” the actor – who came out as transgender in December 2020 – recalled a particularly inappropriate dinner with an unnamed filmmaker.

The man allegedly whispered to Page, “You have to make the move, I can’t,” while “stroking [his] thigh under the table."

The “Juno” star, now 36, alleged that the grooming took place in Canada, as they dined “at Swan on Queen West,” a French diner in downtown Toronto.

Elliot claimed that the man’s “frequent texts made me feel special, as did the books he gifted me.”

The actor also recalled several other instances of alleged on-set sexual harassment in a chapter titled “Leeches.”

While working “on a project not long before” the alleged encounter with the director, “a crew member had done the same.”

“In between takes he would talk to me about art and films … he invited me to hang out on a Saturday afternoon. After a walk in the rain he grabbed me, asserting we go upstairs. Pulling me in to his body, I could feel his hard c–k against me.”

In a separate incident that allegedly took place when Page was filming “Hard Candy” at the age of 17, one of the crew members tried to have sex with him at the movie’s wrap party.
