Actress Ellen Page was slammed on social media after her condescending attack on “one of the nicest celebrities out there,” Chris Pratt, and his church.

The outspoken liberal actress, who has starred in “Juno” and the “X-Men” franchise, declared herself the moral judge over Pratt’s outspoken faith and his church which she condemned for being “infamously” anti-LGBTQ.

Page reacted to Pratt’s recent appearance on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert where the “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star opened up about his faith and his recent 21-day diet inspired by the Bible story of Daniel.

“I was inspired by my pastor to do it. It’s kind of like our Lent, you know, you give something up,” Pratt told Colbert.  “So, for 21 days I had no meat, no sugar, no alcohol, and it was actually amazing. It was really cool.”

Page felt compelled to shame Pratt for his beliefs and for the church he attends, tweeting out that Colbert should have confronted the “Avengers” star about the church’s stance on LGBTQ issues.

“Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles,” Pastor Brian Houston wrote in a blog post from 2015. “Put clearly, we do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid. I recognise this one statement alone is upsetting to people on both sides of this discussion, which points to the complexity of the issue for churches all over the world.”

Page, who last week blamed an alleged hate crime against “Empire” star Jussie Smollett on Vice President Mike Pence, seemed to think Pratt owed her some sort of explanation.

The 31-year-old actress, who doesn’t seem to have posed the anti-LGBTQ question to members of other faiths such as Islam, was called out on social media for her hypocrisy and for attempting to shame Pratt, who is beloved by fans and openly shares his Christian faith.

“Do you ever feel like you’re in the lion’s den, being a celebrity in the public eye?” Colbert asked the 39-year-old actor.

“There’s this great quote I heard in church,” Pratt replied, “and it felt really appropriate, which was ‘If the spotlight that’s shining on you is brighter than the light that comes from within you, it will kill you.’ And you see it all the time.”

Some words of wisdom that Page could benefit from.

Twitter users and fans of Pratt had plenty of words of their own for Page.
