The “Juno” and “Whip It” actress, Ellen Page, said she lived in an eco-village where she shoveled goat poop after filming her 2007 movie. Read more on Ellen’s strange stress-relief below.
Page, 22, said she took time away from the spotlight after Juno and found that doing manual labor helped her relax.
Ellen said: “I went to Oregon to study permaculture and lived in an eco-village for a month outside Eugene. It’s called Lost Valley. It was amazing and exactly what I needed.
“You’re learning how to live in a holistic way with the cycles of the Earth. At one point I was digging goat manure and putting it into a wheelbarrow, and while shovelling it, I just went, ‘Oh, my God, this is exactly what I want to be doing right now.’ “
Ellen says she doesn’t want her life to change even though she is now famous.
She said: “I’m not a fancy person. I love small spaces. I like tiny cars. I don’t buy things, aside from music and books. I don’t get loads of attention and maybe it’s because I’m kind of boring. I don’t think I’m boring, but I have different interests. I don’t go out much, not because I’m hiding but because I’m not a big drinker. I go out and have a good time, I go to concerts and stuff.”
