Wentworth Miller On Suicide Attempts And Coming Out In Hollywood


Wentworth Miller

For years, Wentworth Miller was the cerebral heavily tattooed Michael Schofield on Fox's drama Prison Break. Men wanted to be him, women wanted to be with him, and Miller appeared to have American television, and potentially Hollywood at his feet.

However, it didn't all go to plan for the actor. Post Prison Break, the top scripts didn't fly through the letterbox and Miller turned to screenwriting, penning the Nicole Kidman-starring Stoker under a pseudonym.  

Last month, Miller came out as gay when he posted a letter on GLAAD's website declining an invitation to attend the St Petersburg International Film Festival because he felt "deeply troubled" by the government's treatment of its gay citizens. Last year, Russia banned "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."

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."
