Prison Break's Wentworth Miller Comes Out as Gay

Prison Break's Wentworth Miller Comes Out as Gay

Wentworth Miller has come out as gay man in an open letter denying an invitation to a film festival in Russia.

“Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes,” the 41-year-old Prison Break actor said in a letter (via GLAAD). “However, as a gay man, I must decline.”

“I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government,” Wentworth continued. “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.”

    Now this is a coming out I don’t think many people saw coming. Most of the people saying “knew it” are lying.

    Good for him!!!! More closeted actresses, actors and entertainers need to stop pretending to be someone they are not and be proud of who they are.

    @godlike: …dead career? Miller turned to screenwriting and he wrote Stoker produced by Ridley Scott, and he is in the works on another writing gig. His career is fine.

    Excellent news!

    As Stephen Fry said the other day, despots like the Kremlin jobsworths hate to be inconvenienced. And boycotting the cultural output of Herr Putin’s autocracy-land denies him what he wants most: namely the respect he imagines being a hardman will earn him in the west.

    Wow, did not see this coming. Always thought he was cute, but never suspected. My radar must have been broken. But congrats to him for standing up and being counted.

    Actually, Yohji, it wasn’t a secret. The surprise would have been if he came out as STRAIGHT. Still, the hypocrisy just amazes me. This guy works in a state where the mostly Democrat voters UNANIMOUSLY voted AGAINST gay marriage, yet I didn’t see him and all these other Hollywood celebs who support gay marriage threatening to boycott the state. What’s the term, “selective outrage”?

    Kirsten Says:

    I always knew this and I applaud him for coming out. He is such an intelligent and handsome man.
