» Ellen Page on 'Vanishing of the Bees'

'Inception' star chats with Bill Maher about colony collapse disorder and how industrialized farming is harming bee populations.

For those that believe no good rolemodels exist in young Hollywood, look no further than Ellen Page.

The 24-year-old, who recently starred in the hit movie "Inception", appeared on Bill Maher last week - with the comedian and political commenter calling her the "anti-Kardashian".

Page went on "Real Time" to discuss colony collapse disorder, a topic she became passionate about thanks to her narration of the 2009 documentary "The Vanishing of the Bees".

"People need to understand that one-third of the food that we eat is pollinated by bees," she said, adding that over $16 billion worth of crops in America depend on the insects each year.

Page also mentioned the month she spent at an ecovillage outside of Eugene, Oregon studying permaculture. In a 2009 interview, she said:

“You’re learning how to live in a holistic way with the cycles of the Earth. At one point I was digging goat (manure) and putting it into a wheelbarrow, and while shoveling it, I just went, ‘Oh, my God, this is exactly what I want to be doing right now.’ ”
