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:

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…

@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.

@matt:Don’t forget Gyllenfaker

I knew it! Still really hot though.

now we wait for George Clooney to come out….

Worst kept secret in Hollywood.

Good for him – all the hottest, classy and inteligent guys are. Straight guys can’t compare. Why are we letting a 3rd world country host the Olympics – what idiot allowed that to happen? I say Ian Somerhalder or Henry Cavill are next.

Can Fabio come out of the closet, please?

Bradley Cooper is a gay leaning bisexual.
Jeremy Renner is gay
George Clooney is a solid Bisexual
Jake Gyllenhall is bisexual
Henry Cavill is bisexual but leans more to the gay side sexually

@Truther: “leans more to the gay side….uh, yeah the bottom.

@sarah: Colton Haynes acting straight on tv is so distracting …he can’t hide it at all

next ones in line : Lee Pace, Luke Evans and maybe Colton Haynes (if he can eventually grow some bal*s)

I think Gyllenhaal is a closeted gay like Rock Hudson was years ago. He doesn’t want his movie career to go down the toilet.

@Truther: I like your analysis. It’s amazing how Clooney can keep the rumors pretty much at bay.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I had a major crush on him. He was too sexy. Darn :’(

And to ALL the JJ readers who said “no he’s not, you don’t know what you’re talking about” I say TOLD YOU. Told you TWO YEARS AGO he is gay.

Wow, I’m gay and I never suspected. My gaydar must be broken. But I applaud Wentworth…….good for him!!!

Very classy and on point, thank you so much Wentworth !

NEXT IS………….. ZAC EFRON ? WHO ELSE AGREE WITH ME ?! LOL LOL

i believe he´s or bi!! =D

@Jennifer: Chris Pine and Chris Evans.

One word: Dicaprio

I’m still wet…and VERY proud.

So So Many @ 08/21/2013 at 7:24 pm

There are so many gay and/or bi actors. Most stay in the closet because even though it is 2013 a lot of people can’t accept the fact that their leading men are that way.

i thought he was already out.
