LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Julianne Moore is really happy for her Freeheld co-star Ellen Page.

Moore, 53, is set to play Page's love interest in the Peter Sollett-directed drama about a couple battling to secure pension benefits after one of them is diagnosed with a terminal illness.

The film's cast was announced a day after Page gave her famous coming out speech at the Human Rights Campaign's first annual THRIVE conference in mid-February.

"It was really wonderful," Moore told E! News of Page's speech. "I was very happy for her."

The Oscar-nominated actress also said she was "excited" about her upcoming collaboration with the Juno star.

Freeheld is currently in the pre-production stage.
