Wentworth Miller is finally talking to his fans about coming out. This star of "Prison Break" was in the closet for a while but recently admitted to being gay and finally came out. On Friday, E! Online shared about how he feels now. It was a relief for him to admit the truth. Fans really didn't know but now they are glad to hear him being open and honest.

Here is what he had to say in a new interview with Details Magazine, "I feel more fully expressed. 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.'"

Wentworth thinks that his fans know but honestly they were shocked when the news came out. He went on to say, "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. Attraction is fluid, and I think our imaginations are strong enough to hold a container for all of this complexity, even if we know on a subconscious level something's not what it appears to be."

He has actually joined the cast of an upcoming show "The Flash" that will air on the CW. He will be playing Captain Cold and fans are excited to see him on television again on a weekly series. This show is one that fans are really excited about coming out.
