Bifauxnen: While she wasn't usually one before, she pulled it off several times (See: Hard Candy and Mouth to Mouth). She also adopted a more masculine style after her coming-out, completed with a short haircut for Freeheld.
Celebrity Endorsement: Ellen gets paid to promote... computer networking products for Cisco in a campaign portraying a Grass Is Greener little town as the new tech hub of the universe (which just happens to be in her home province of Nova Scotia).
Dawson Casting: Almost always plays a teenager, despite already being in her twenties. Understandable however given that she actually looks considerably younger than she is. Super and Inception have had her playing characters in their early twenties, which she was. Toyed with for Beyond: Two Souls, in which she visually ages but is still recognisable as Ellen Page, and voices herself from about the teens onward, naturally being too old to do a child's voice any more.
Type Casting: For quite some time, Ellen Page was typecast as an atypical, rebellious teenage girl with an attitude. However, her involvement in works such as Peacock and Inception indicates a shift to more varied roles.
