Thirlby appeared in the film as the title character’s best friend Leah; she came out as bisexual a couple of years later in an interview with Brooklyn Magazine.
Page wrote: ‘I was taken aback the moment I saw Olivia Thirlby. She seemed so much older, capable, and centered,’ he recalled. ‘Sexually open, far removed from where I was at the time. But the chemistry was palpable, it pulled me in.’
The actor claimed that it was Thirlby who made the first move by confessing that she was ‘really attracted’ to him, which led to the two ‘sucking face.’
The relationship was kept secret with Page adding that they were ‘subtle’ on set.
Though the film shot Page to stardom, Thirlby’s film appearances remained quiet and she mostly appeared in small, independent movies.

‘This was right after I’d come out as gay and it was a time of exploration and also heartbreak.
‘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 said Max was supportive of Kate exploring their relationship -which was kept a secret from the world and says Kate told him: ‘I never thought I could be in love with two people and now I know I can.’
