Wentworth Miller opens up about coming out

wentworth In a candid new interview with Details magazine, Wentworth Miller says he was “feeding a fantasy” before coming out as gay last year.

The announcement has helped him feel more honest and “more fully expressed”.

”I feel more fully expressed,” he says. ”After ‘Prison Break,’ I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends.

”But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of ‘We don’t address that thing.’ ”

”The people onscreen aren’t the characters they’re playing. They’re our projection of who we want them to be. I think it’s possible to have a man-crush if you’re not gay or to have a crush on a guy you know to be gay if you’re a woman.”
