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.”

    @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.

    Dean MacKinnon-Thomson Says:

    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.

    sillyme Says:

    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”?

    @godlike:

    His career is dead? LOL he’s turned to screenwriting and currently has 5 projects in development. 1 being produced by Tom Hanks & Oprah Winfrey, 1 at Fox Searchlight, 1 with Trudie Styler atMaven. 1 at relativity Media, 1 with Nicolas Chartier at Voltage.

    His career is more than ‘just fine’!

    And good for him for declining the invite to the St. Petersburg Int’l FF!

    Yes, Katie, because if he was straight you may have had a chance…

    aquarius64 Says:

    @HMMMMM: That’s true, but the problem is if that actor promoted himself as a sex symbol and became wealthy because of that false image there would be a backlash and a dried up career. How many important gigs Lance Bass is getting now? Ricky Martin is not getting a lot of high profile work these days. Neil Patrick Harris & Elton John came out (or been out) but they never sold themselves as a woman’s fantasy. It seems as if to come out and keep a career in Hollywood you better have an exceptional talent and never have sold yourself as every woman’s dream man. It doesn’t sound fair but it is what it is.

    Drake Says:

    I knew he was, he kind of like Matt bomer. Glass closet. Never seen him with a women and he kind of hint at it in a interview he said “there’s nothing you can say about me that I don’t know”

    Y’all need to stop wishfully thinking. Luke Evans, Colton Haynes and Kevin spacey have glass closet so they next.

    I don’t think Bradley cooper, leonardo dicaprio, Chris pine or Ryan gosling are gay.

    Jake is a toss up and clooney is hypersexual.

    Nora Says:

    I know from fact that Cavill and Gosling are not Gay.I have a friend who worked on movies that Henry and Ryan starred.Henry started a fling with a girl from Montreal while he was filming immortals(Plus Rumor has it that after his spilt with his fiance he dated a girl he met in Vancouver while filming MOS.She dumped him)and Ryan had a girlfriend that left him when he got his breakout role.
    Dicaprio?…i don’t know.If he is…my gaydar is broken.BUT 1D…they definetly are.

  62. 62
    JJ THE EXPAT Says:

    Can’t say I’m shocked. My gaydar overloaded whenever I saw him. That being said, I think it’s great that he had the courage to come out in his own time. I’m also very happy to hear that he turned down Russia’s invitation in support of the LGBT community.

    Sophia Says:

    @Jennifer:

    I don;t think it’s right to call somebody publicly gay based on your speculation that every gay guy is hot,classy and inteligent.Sure Matt Bommer combined the 3 but that is not the case with every hot,classy,inteligent guy.I don;t know much about Somerhalder,but as far as i;m concerned Cavill is not gay.My sister,while she was studying in UK(we are from Germany),met him and his girlfriend at a party.She said he was shy(he was not famous yet)but once he felt comfortable,he was really funny and outgoing!

    @tory:

    I know women that have slept with clooney and cooper. I think cooper more hetroflexible and clooney will sleep with anything basically.
    With jake I don’t have enough proof to say he gay but if he came out I wouldn’t be surprise. Taylor launter another one.

    @mona travolta obv but he ain’t coming out soon.

    As long as you aren’t deceiving women you really shouldn’t “come out” .

    Conner Says:

    @tory: Gay people can make out and even have sex with the opposite sex. Happens all the time. Some get married and have kids. Some come out some never do. It’s really nobody’s business but theirs what they do in their personal lives. Since celebs are under the microscope, they have to be even more secretive than unknown gays who have trouble coming out to family and friends.

  75. 75
    ALVEZ Says:

    To have girlfriend or not doesn´t mean a guy is straight, specially in Hollywood, c´mon guys everybody knows these men have to fake their sexuality in order to let the career “clean”… An of course… Big artists are bisexuals… This isn´t new… Don´t be so innocent…

    Brian Says:

    @tory: My dad is gay. He was married twice and had 5 kids. He finally came out when he was 52. He said he felt so much better when he didn’t have to lie and pretend anymore. To me he’s the same person only more relaxed and easy going now.

  82. 82
    Love The Shoes Says:

    @Love The Shoes: Btw, I am thrilled he turned down PUBLICALLY Russia. This is why I’m not a the “Snowden is a hero” bandwagon. You had to be dead not to know Putin/Russia was homophobic and yet, Snowden out of one side of his mouth denounces America for “trampling on freedom” and out of the other side of his mouth “silence when it comes to gay rights in Russia.”

  83. 83
    Emma Says:

    @ALVEZ:

    But because of the MOS thing,i think Cavill is not gay.WB rejected way better actors because of this…why would they go a cast someone who is not as experienced as the other guys and put a billion dollar franchise in danger by catsing a gay man to play Superman?WB likes to pay safe…they would never do that.Especially when they give 225 mil to make the movie.Also Cavill’s gay rumors derive from fake stories(stories that have been prooved fake),so…

    Hi Wentworth,

    You were awesome in Prison Break and you always gave intelligent interviews. I can’t wait to see that film you penned starring Mia W and Nicole Kidman. Anyway, I always suspected you were gay and good on you for speaking out…Russia’s a freaking hole when it comes to racism, homophobia, etc.

    Hope to see you act in more films. I also loved you in The Human Stain.

    A girl fan.

    sillyme @ 08/21/2013 at 6:31 pm #21

    If you stayed away from all the states that have a majority of people who don’t support Gay as a lifestyle, you’d probably need to get out of the U.S.A. Voting is not the same as the amount of residents who actually support something. As you know a very low percentage of people who are eligible to vote in a state actually vote.

    I don’t care if you are gay bi or whatever, but to lie to another human being whom you’ve made a promise to and who’ve helped you raise children is fvcked up. Be honest and don’t trick women into believing you are straight and wasting their time and maybe even their health!

    Blythe Says:

    I knew it! I knew it! A good-looking man like Wentworth hasn’t been linked to any women, nor is he married. Surely, some gal would’ve locked him down if he were heterosexual. There’s something odd about a good-looking, 41 year old man like him. Anyways, I’m glad he said it.

    I am a very big fan of Wentworth Miller since 1996. I am happy, that he finally came out.I love him to death.No matter what! He will always be in my heart, mind, body and soul.I don’t have nothing against the LGBT peoples.They are humans being just like us.They have the rights to love and live their life as they please.I respect them all for what they believe in. I am straight .I am not an homophobic or ignorant person.I love everybody and there is no exception.That’s how I was raised and educated.Good for Wentworth Miller.

    I knew Wentworth was gay but his coming out came as a big surprise anyway. He is still a very good actor and seems like a really nice person. I wish him all the best and can`t wait to see him in some new projects in the future.

    Clara Says:

    @sillyme: Yes, because not having marriage equality is REALLY as bad as what Russia is doing! Smh. >.>

    Secondly, you say he already works in said State, well it’s a whole lot harder to boycott somewhere you work than somewhere you get an invitation to come to briefly. I cannot see any hypocrisy whatever! It’s not like you say he’s praised those who voted against equality?

  120. 120
    EyeJelly Says:

    From what I can find on the interwebs, the guys that really seem to have the gay swarming around them are:

    Taylor Lautner
    Zac Efron
    Bradley Cooper
    Gerard Butler
    Jeremy Renner
    Jake Gyllenhaal
    Chace Crawford
    Matthew Morrison

    I’m sure they’re all afraid of what coming out will do to their careers, and on one level I don’t blame them.

    However, they should also look at the John Travolta saga as a warning tale. As a actor gets older and people become more and more aware of their history, that actor can do more damage to their reputation by keeping up a facade that everyone knows is fake rather than just telling the truth. Travolta has already reached that point and Kevin Spacey and Hugh Jackman are not far behind.

    Wow the disgusting comments on here amaze me. Yes I am talking about those listing the next ones to come out as gay who only use it as a insulting term. I hate when people use gay as an insult because its very rude to those that are. I am not, but have had friends that are. Also just because a guy is good looking and known for it doesn’t mean he is gay.

    To all you saying Wentworth has always been in a glass closet – you are mistaken. He has himself said “I am not gay, I want a girlfriend and a family, I am just waiting for the right woman.”

    This is the coming out. This is a big deal.

    Akari Life Says:

    @Conner: That is why I hate. I don’t care if you’re gay or bi, but I loathe ppl that are being secretive and trying to be straight when in fact they are not. They basically wasting their times trying to listen what society is saying rather than be happy.

    I chose to be single rather than being in relationship with a man like my other friends because I’m not ready for a commitment and I have trust issue because some men tend to lie in my face by being fake. I don’t want to get my heart broken.

    Jasmine Says:

    Taylor Lautner is gay
    Chace Crawford is gay
    George Clooney is bisexual and kinky as heell
    Leonardo is gay but thinks he is bi
    Robert Pattinson is bi
    Jake Gyllenhaal is gay but thinks he is bi
    Zac Efron is gay
    Bradley Cooper is bi
    Jeremy Renner is gay
    Hugh Jackman is gay
    Brad Pitt is bi
    Joseph Gordon Levitt is gay
    Justin Timberlake is bi
    James Franco is gay
    Henry Cavill is gay

    None of these who are even close to A-listers are going to come out anytime soon. Too risky.

    Just because an actor is gay does not mean they haven’t been inside of a ******. Many gay men try to convince themselves they are straight or bi for years before come out to themselves. And in Hollyweird there are lots of sexual favors in exchange for roles, and those are required by both genders.

    WOMEN: just because an actor is gay doesn’t mean you can’t fantasize about them. Open your minds! And by the way, you have just as much a chance with Wentworth today as you did last week ;)

    This world is going crazy. It will be a shame to have a heterosexual family soon, they will have less rights than gay families. White people will be ashamed they are white! What is next ??? …people marrying their pets?

  142. 142
    Jasmine Says:

    @kathy: I hope you are joking, otherwise you sound pretty ridiculous.

    Giving equal rights to people who previously did not have them does not take away your rights as a privileged, white, straight person. Really.

    akarilfe Says:

    @Jasmine: I don’t believe Brad Pitt, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Hugh Jackman, Justin Timberlake. You need to stop stereotyping other actors by assuming that they are gay. Brad Pitt is with Angelina Jolie (Bisexual actress) and he is gay rights activist. Hugh Jackman is married with his wife for more than a decade and he is gay rights activist. Joseph Gordon Levitt ‘s brother is gay. Don’t assume if you don’t have evidence. Wentworth proves that he was gay by being on date with another male actor.

    aquarius64 Says:

    I doubt Taylor Lautner is gay, but he doesn’t help himself with that meme when he PR dates his co-stars and runs back to his high school girlfriend when the Hollywood hook-ups go south. If that were true, the meltdown among Twi-hards would be just as massive as when Kristen was caught cheating. It would be another book- and movie-fueled romantic fantasy smashed to smithereens by reality. It would also impact his career because he is trying to become an action star.

    Ryan Gosling-Not gay
    Zac Efron-Bi
    Henry Cavill-Not gay buy gay friendly
    Chase Crawford-Gay
    Hugh Jackman-Not Gay…interested though
    Bradley Cooper-Bi

    Christopher Meloni-Not gay but gay friendly
    Taylor Lautner-Gay
    Robert Pattinson-Bi
    Jake Gyllenhaal-Not gay
    Luke Evans-Gay

    BTW don;t believe half the gay rumors you are hearing.When a guy get s his breakthrough role in Hollywood he instantly attracts gay rumors.Gay Rumors can also be used as proof that someone made it big.

    llupp Says:

    Bradley Cooper – bisexual
    Leo Dicaprio – bisexual

    @Hayley very true about an actor becoming big and they’re suddenly “gay”. but someone like B.Cooper had rumors from the start. I tend to believe it.

    @oh my:

    Levitt has actually some of the LOUDEST gay rumors.I don;t know if they are true…i tend not to believe everything i hear on the internet BUT you know what they say?when there’ s smoke…
    Anyway,my gaydar can’t decide about Levitt.

    Nora Says:

    @oh my:

    You are right.I find stupid the fact that people are so obssesed with the sexual orientantion of an actor.What if some is gay?…does that suddenly make him a different person?I hear all these people complaing about actors not coming out but they don;t realise that is their attitude that prevents actors from doing so.

    Yes Levitt is really talented…just NO for Batman.

  160. 160
    oh my Says:

    @Nora:Totally agree with you. With whom we sleep, does not determine our capacity! I’d like Gyllenhaal or Gosling as Batman or even Wes Bentley!

  161. 161
    Nora Says:

    @oh my:

    It depens on how they will decide to tell Batman’s story.If they will go for an older Batman i think Josh Brolin is the best choice.If they will go for a younger version…Wes Bentley or Michael Fassbender.

  162. 162
    oh my Says:

    @Nora: Michael Fassbender is like 40, but great actor!

  163. 163

    Maybe the viewing public should examine the role we play in keeping actors, athletes, and celebs in the closet. It can’t be very comfortable living a lie.

    @Breanna:
    I remember that statement too,plus he always said he liked women not men,whenever he was asked about being gay…

    @Hayley: Henry Cavill is most certainly gay and all my gay friends see it. There are photos of him with gay guys in gay bars all over the net from his younger days. Now they are trying to beard him up to be straight since he’s Superman. One day he will come out, just like Wentworth Miller.

    @Blancm*nge ;):
    Coz they were still active. You don’t slap the hand that feeds’ya so easily. At least it would take some gutz to do that. Now he’s not losing anything so no sacrifice needed, though he did try to make his coming out look heroic ;)

    Blancm*nge ;) Says:

    Oh yeah, good point. Shame though, the meltdowns would have been glorious! Lol, yeah, standing up for gay rights… AFTER he made his fortune playing straight. Oh well, I guess he does deserve some credit for not partaking in a showmance with some dizzy blonde actress.

    @Troy: there is no proof that henry was in gay bars. There are pictures of him and his gay friends but based on the pictures you cannot tell if they were gay bars or not. Henry has stated he is straight, gay friend of ten years said he is straight. It is not proof of anyone being gay just because they have gay friends
