Ju oughta no

By the end of the year it was evident that Page was the story of 2007, if not the decade. After weeks of email tag, we managed to grab 15 minutes with her on the morning of Juno's LA premiere, which came weeks after a grassroots Q&A tour across America. Page sounded weary and stoked to come home for the holidays, and as it turned out, the real crazy was yet to come. But she always made it a point to keep her head steady. "I wanted Juno to be very confident, outspoken. I wanted her to have a lack of vanity, because I don't see that in teenage female characters very often," said writer Diablo Cody. "I wanted her to be multi- dimensional. And Ellen is all of those things herself."
