Wentworth Miller Talks Suicide: 'I Tried to Kill Myself at 15'

Wentworth Miller speaks out about his past attempt at suicide as the special guest speaker at a dinner for the Human Rights Campaign on Saturday (September 7) in Seattle, Wash.

“The first time I tried to kill myself, I was 15,” the 41-year-old Prison Break actor said. “I waited until my family went away for the weekend. I was alone and I swallowed a bottle of pills. I don’t remember what happened over the next couple of days, but I’m pretty sure come Monday, I was on the bus back to school pretending everything was fine.”

“When someone asks me if that was a cry for help, I say no. Because I’ve told no one. You only cry for help if you believe there is help to calm you. And I didn’t need it, I wanted out… at 15,” he added.

Wentworth publicly came out as a gay man last month while denying an invitation from a film festival in Russia.
