Ellen Page on Bryan Singer Charges: "Super Disturbing"

by at .  Updated at .

Actress Ellen Page has spoken out about allegations that director Bryan Singer molested Michael Egan while the latter was still in his teens.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Page described the charges as "super disturbing," adding, "I guess the truth will come out in the way that does, but it's hard to hear about someone being in that position, someone you like working with."

Page, of course, reprises her role as Kitty Pryde in the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, which was directed by Singer. 

"Whatever comes of it," Page says. "I do think there's a systemic issue of people in places of power manipulating and abusing young people."

The actress recently made headlines of her own for unrelated and very different reasons.

Page came out as gay in February and has since gained legions of new fans and become a sort of representative for the LGBT community in Hollywood. 

Though she's probably best known for her role as a pregnant teen in the 2007 film Juno, producers of the latest X-Men film were reportedly so wowed by Ellen's abilities as an action star that they've cast as her a sniper in the forthcoming film Queen & Country.

For his part, Singer has denied all of the accusations against him, along with Garth Ancier and Gary Goddard - two other Hollywood moguls who were allegedly a part of the same underground Hollywood sex ring as Singer.
