Ellen Page is revealing graphic details of director Brett Ratner's alleged sexual harassment, claiming at a meet and greet for X-Men: The Last Stand, he outed her as gay before she was ready.

In an explosive note posted on her Facebook, Page, 30, claims Ratner said in front of a group of people: “’You should f**k her to make her realize she’s gay.’ I was eighteen years old."

“He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: ‘You should f**k her to make her realize she’s gay.’ He was the film’s director, Brett Ratner.”

Page, who played Kitty Pryde in the series, continued, “I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself,” Page wrote.

“I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. I felt violated when this happened. I looked down at my feet, didn’t say a word and watched as no one else did either. This man, who had cast me in the film, started our months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea,” Page said.

“He ‘outed’ me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic.”

She added: "I proceeded to watch him on set say degrading things to women. I remember a woman walking by the monitor as he made a comment about her “flappy p***y."

As readers know, six other women, including actress Olivia Munn and Katharine Towne, have also accused Ratner of sexual harassment — charges he and his camp have denied.

Munn claimed that Ratner masturbated in front of her when she came into his trailer to deliver his food, during a day of filming. He denied her allegations but claimed he “banged” her various times and then “forgot about her.”

When actress Katharine Towne, 39, bashed Ratner for allegedly cornering her in a public bathroom and calling her repeatedly to arrange a sexual encounter between them, the producer’s attorney said: “Even if hypothetically this incident occurred exactly as claimed, how is flirting at a party, complimenting a woman on her appearance, and calling her to ask her for a date wrongful conduct?”

After the first round of complaints, Ratner's lawyer, Martin Singer, said no one had ever complained about his client.

“I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” Singer said. “Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”
