Wentworth Miller Dominic Purcell

Those who watched 'Prison Break: The Final Break' will remember how Michael (Wentworth Miller) sacrificed himself in an explosion in a bid to rescue his pregnant wife Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) from Miami-Dade State Penitentiary where she was falsely imprisoned. He even left her and his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) a DVD explaining why he did what he did, implying that he didn't have long anyway with his brain tumour.

Reason 364 To Like Wentworth Miller: His Speech At The Human Rights Campaign Gala


Wentworth Miller

Today Wentworth Miller is out and proud and stepping up to defend LGBT folk in Russia (see: Miller’s open letter to the St Petersburg Film Festival), but it wasn’t always so. Speaking at the Human Rights Campaign Gala in Seattle this weekend (September 7) Miller recounted his difficulty as a teenager to come to terms with his sexuality – a struggle, which ultimately led him to attempt suicide.

"The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15," he recounted, via E!News.

"I waited until my family went away for the weekend and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills. I don't remember what happened over the next couple days, but I'm pretty sure come Monday morning I was on a bus back to school pretending everything was fine. And when someone asked me if that was a cry for help, I say no, because I told no one."

Wentworth Miller Given More Praise By Stars For Coming Out Of The Closet

When Wentworth Miller outed himself as gay in response to an invite from a Russia film festival, he was inundated with messages of support for his public outing and for protesting the archaic anti-homosexuality legislation rife in the former communist country. After receiving praise from the likes Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres and Jesse Tyler Ferguson on Twitter, the latest star to tip their hat at Wentworth is White Collar star Matt Boomer.

Russian Anti-LGBT Legislation Leads Wentworth Miller To Come Out As Gay


Wentworth Miller Barack Obama

Wentworth Miller, the 41-year-old star of Prison Break, has come out as gay in the most admirable way possible. Instead of doing it by tweet or even a statement via a publicist, Miller penned a letter to the St. Petersburg Film Festival, in which he declined being the guest of honor and even attending, due to the Russian government’s attitude towards LGBT men and women.

Miller's confirmation of his homosexuality was beside the point of his letter.

"I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government," the text of Miller’s letter, made available by ABC News, reads. "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."

As Wentworth Miller Comes Out As Gay, We Remember 'Prison Break'


Wentworth Miller

Prison Break actor Wentworth Miller has refused an invitation to a film festival in St Petersburg over Russia's new anti-gay laws. Announcing himself "as a gay man," the actor said he was "deeply troubled" by current attitudes in Russia and would not be attending the event, where he was due to be honored.

In June, the Russian parliament backed a bill which prescribed heavy fines for anyone organising a gay pride event, or providing information about homosexuality to people under 18. 

"I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government," wrote Wentworth, 41, in a letter posted on GLAAD's (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) website. "The situation is in no way acceptable."
