Ellen Page is not a fan of Chris Pratt after the actor gave an interview on The Late Show

The LEGO Movie 2 star stopped by to chat about what's been going on his life which included The Daniel Fast — a fast he participated in through his church, Zoe.

"I just came off it a couple of days ago," Pratt told show host Stephen Colbert. "It's a 21-day fast. A lot of people are doing it. I did it through my church. It's based on the Book of Daniel...He's a guy who only ate fruits and vegetables and grains and didn't have any leavened breads or animal products. So I was inspired by my pastor. It's kind of like our lent. We give something up. So for 21 days I had no meat, no sugar, and no alcohol. It was actually amazing."

Openly gay Page took to Twitter showing her bemusement at both him and the religious establishment.

"Oh. K. Um," Ellen Page wrote on Twitter in response to the interview. "But his church is infamously anti LGBTQ so maybe address that too?"

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Pratt, 39, is set to marry socialite Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, later this year and he told Colbert how important religion was to him.

However, Page, 31, did not seem impressed following the interview, as she hit out at the church that has drawn the attention of many celebrities including Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

Zoe is lead by former Hillsong church pastor Chad Veach.

In August 2015, Hillsong global pastor Brian Houston released a statement addressing rumors that the church is not supportive LGBTQ people.

"I do believe God’s word is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman," he wrote, later adding, "Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles. Put clearly, we do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid. I recognize this one statement alone is upsetting to people on both sides of this discussion, which points to the complexity of the issue for churches all over the world."
