Ezra Miller Was Told He Made a Mistake By Coming Out as Queer

Ezra Miller is opening up his choice to reveal he identifies as queer.

The 25-year-old Justice League actor says that after making the revelation in interview with Out back in 2012, he was told he made a mistake.

“I was told, when I gave that interview…This is an interesting thing to talk about. I was told by a lot of people I’d made a mistake,” Ezra told Shortlist.

“Folks in the industry, folks outside the industry. People I’ve never spoken to. They said there’s a reason so many gay, queer, gender-fluid people in Hollywood conceal their sexual identity, or their gender identity in their public image. I was told I had done a ‘silly’ thing in…thwarting my own potential to be a leading man,” he continued.

Ezra added, “‘You’ve made a mistake’ is such a hard thing to hear. Maybe if I’d actually made a serious mistake? But not for this. I didn’t think I’d done anything wrong, though there have been moments of doubt as a result of those conversations. But…what they said was, in fact, ‘rubbish’, as you might say. We are the ones. It’s up to us to manifest the world we want to exist in. But we’re ready. Humans are ready.”

    I for one, couldn’t care less & rather not know someone’s sexual preference. Who really cares about that? It has no bearing on the actor that you are.

    There’s still a lot of fear in Hollywood about openly gay men being believed as leading men. So sometimes, someone like Ezra will be warned against it by people that may have had the best intentions but ultimately serve to hold him back from success, not gear him towards it. I love when people like that are proven wrong. The proof here is that he’s only become more successful in the past 5 years.

    It should be that way, where it isn’t a big deal about your sexuality. Hollywood if anything has proven as of late just how backwards they really are.

    It is crazy who people are already pretending no longer become believable due to sexual prefence. We can remove ourselves from reality to believe someone has the ability to shoot web from their hands, but not if they are gay being the leading man in love with a woman.

    If someone’s sexuality bothers someone else then this person should ask for help. It’s not anyone’s business if Miller is gay, bi or whatever. Love has no gender.
