Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) comes out as gay
 
Quote:

Actor Wentworth Miller, of Prison Break, came out as “a gay man” in a letter sent Wednesday to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, declining his participation because, he writes, “I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government.”

He went on:
The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice.

GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz noted in a statement, “Wentworth’s bold show of support sends a powerful message to LGBT Russians, who are facing extreme violence and persecution: you are not alone. As people from across the globe continue to speak out against Russia’s horrific law, more celebrities and corporations should follow his courageous lead in openly condemning Russia’s anti-LGBT law.”

I thought it was well known he was gay, did he not have a relationship with a bloke from Heroes? :confused:

Isleepinthebuff 21-08-2013 23:21

Go Wentworth! He has never said it publicly but everyone knew but that's a cool letter he wrote!

antero 21-08-2013 23:46

People had been talking for ages, but good for him and what a fantastic way to come out.

shelleyj89 22-08-2013 08:29

Let's talk about the more important issue here, he's 41 years old?! :eek:;)

In all seriousness, what a classy way to decline the offer. Fair play to you, sir.

No way? He looks amazing for that. I am so jealous of any man who ends up with him, he is gorgeous.

Goaty 22-08-2013 09:29

Great for him to come out for it. It's well known for ages. Too handsome to be straight! :)

He also wrote his first screenplay for the film Stoker and still do more, wish all the best!

julie2009 22-08-2013 11:04

I am in shock at this news even though I heard the rumours years ago but took no notice of it

He is too good looking to be gay. I loved him in Prison Break and the Mariah Carey video - what a dish
Who is going to be next to "come out"

Good for him.

Such respect for him for being honest and standing up for himself. I hope this helps young gay guys and girls.

And lucky boyfriend! Wentworth is a very good looking man! :D :p.

Well to be fair there was a post further up saying he is too good looking to be straight!!

Think we need to learn that sexuality isn't a by product of looks!! Just lucky for all of us there are mingers and hot ones in every permutation :D

Which was sort of my point. Perhaps Julie2009 just didnt understand that.

I haven't heard of him since Prison Break and had no idea he is gay.

Good for him coming out in such a positive way!

fairypenny 22-08-2013 13:54

No way is he 41!

asyousay 22-08-2013 14:17

Worst kept secret ever , everybody was talking about him being gay and dating a guy from tv show Brothers and Sisters in about 2007.

mvloca 22-08-2013 14:37

Part of me actually said inside "Awww... damn". I had the same reaction to Derren Brown. I have to chuckle to myself, like I ever actually had a chance with either of them! Haha!
