A Wentworth Miller suicide attempt was revealed on Sept. 9, as the popular actor said that he tried to kill himself when he was 15-years-old because he was gay. According to ABC News, Miller said he swallowed a bottle of pills at the time.
It has been one month since Wentworth Miller, 41, came out of the closet, and now he is reaching out to others to let people know they are not alone and he understands the fears or closeted gays.
When asked if the suicide attempts was a cry for help, he rejects that notion. Miller said that a cry for help means you believe there is help out there for you, but he never believed there was help for him. He said that, at the age of 15, he just wanted out and wanted to end it all.
Miller said he doesn't remember much about the aftereffects of the suicide attempt, but that he was pretty sure he was back on a school bus on Monday morning pretending like nothing ever happened.
Recently, Miller refused an invitation to be the guest of honor at the St. Petersburg International Film Festival because of the Russia government's stance on homosexuality. He said that if people can't live their lives freely under Russian rule, and love who they want to love openly, he can't participate in a celebration in the country.
