Wentworth Miller comes out read a headline from PEOPLE Magazine on Aug. 21. The "Prison Break" actor released a letter announcing his sexuality to the world. The message was posted on the GLAAD website today and was in response to an invitation to the Petersburg International Film Festival.
"As a gay man... 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... If circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice," wrote Miller.
Wentworth Miller comes out much to the surprise of many of his fans. The heart throb was known for making women swoon and he was quite popular because of his good looks (and his fine acting skills but more so his good looks). There have been some fans that have said that they have known this information all along but for the most part, fans were completely taken off guard and shocked.
Miller will receive a lot of support following his decision to stand up for gays and to stand against the Russian government. He certainly took a stand and that's cool.
