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.”

Good for him. Wishing him happiness in his life

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

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

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.

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"

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! .

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

Me too....

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!

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!
