Wentworth Miller Comes Out As “A Gay Man”

Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame came out as a gay man on Wednesday when he put his thoughts on paper and shipped it out to Russia. Excuse me?

That’s right! Wednesday, Miller wrote a letter to St. Petersburg International Film Festival, declining an invitation as a “guest of honour” because of his sexuality. The letter explained:

…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. 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.

What a way to open that closet door! Indeed a bold and ballsy move for Wentworth, and I can’t think of a better way to come out than standing your ground on your ideals and morals in the face of such fascism.

Sorry though Mariah, looks like you DIDN’T belong together!

    Good for him! We’ve all heard and thought that he was! I’m hoping its a good decision for him to make & applaud him on his bravery in this situation!!!

  • Bob

    “came out”?
    Mr. Miller was NEVER ‘in the closet’!
    I don’t know anyone who was caught off-guard by the ‘gay’ thing.
    But everyone applauds his decision to snub the ‘honor’ based on the Russian government’s stance.

  • DouggSeven

  • B.S

    Wentworth should have been chosen to play the next Batman. He is a fine actor and has a kind of catlike and mysterious look.

  • stranded

    @ andrew. Wow what a great suggestion. I just read the post saying Affleck was Batman, which i think is a terrible choice, but i couldn’t think of a good Batman. Miller has that tortured broody personality that’ just like Batman. Is it me, or did he seem to never want to play the hollywood game and pursue movie and tv roles?

    Another faggg????? UGH!

  • Chuckf

    Hannah – what’s the matter, sweetie? Did yet another man leave you because you’re hopeless in the sack? That should be telling you something. Please, feel free to turn another straight guy gay for the rest of us to enjoy. p.s. Get a dictionary, honey. The multiple “g’s” in your vile blurt are somewhat redundant. Take your trailer-trash arse and your trailer-trash brats back to the trailer park & eat some more KFC.

  • Slavi

    Chucksf, only her presence here speaks volumes, LOL
    In her day she doesnt feel special and everyone probably ignore her, and all she have is online space, to express herself and her hate to the world…
    Probably shes been in love with Wentworth, and now when she found out, she went into rage.. notice, the multiple G’s and (?) is expression of anger, holding the key longer than usual… can u imagine the reaction hiding behind that???
    let her be… she doesnt have much…

  • Don

    HELL YEAH….FINALLY DUDE 🙂
    Way to go. Your awesomeness factor just went off the charts for me lol
    Also, I whole heartedly agree with Wentworth Miller being the new Batman in the upcoming Batman/Superman cross-over movie.
    Can you just imagine it? Henry Cavil and Wentworth Miller together on that big screen. OMG electric!!…phew,i need to catch my breath….

  • Andrew

    Regarding Wentworth being Batman, he’d have to seriously bulk up for the role. As handsome as he is, physically he would be more suited to play Spider-Man than Batman…
