Elliot's Struggled With Mental Health 

In 2007, Elliot had a breakout role in a movie named Juno. He even bagged an Academy nomination for that role.

He said he was dressed in high heels, which he was not okay about. 

He did not know how to talk about those things at that time. 

He recalled one incident at the Toronto International Film festival promoting his movie where his manager asked him to put on a dress on a red carpet event where his male co-star was okay with slacks and sneakers. 

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, he revealed that he had major panic attacks and struggled with depression and anxiety.

The pressure to live up to how a woman dresses leads him to collapse at moments.
