"The First Time I Tried To Kill Myself I Was Fifteen" - Wentworth Miller Recounts His Own Struggles In Inspirational HRC Speech


Wentworth Miller

Like many teenagers, Prison Break star Wentworth Miller had a tough time growing up, particularly because he was struggling with his sexuality for a long time. During his speech at a recent Human Rights Campaign gala in Seattle, Miller revealed some of the darker moments of his life.

Wentworth Miller, Fox TV Upfront
Miller wasn't always as happy and successful as he is now.

"The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15," he said 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 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."

'You Know What, Russia? I'm Gay And I'm Not Into Your Regime' - Wentworth Miller


Wentworth Miller Pussy Riot

Alright, so he didn’t quite say it like that, but Wentworth Miller has sent a message out to Russia and their homophobic regime by coming out as gay and declining an invitation to the St Petesburg Film Festival.

"As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes," Miller wrote in the letter, posted on GLAAD's website. See, it’s a little more eloquent than out headline. "However, as a gay man, I must decline."

Miller is known for his hard-as-nails role in Prison Break, a hard-hitting boxset crime drama that doesn’t hold back on the violence. Miller added he was "deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government," and did not want attend an event in 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."

Prison Break's Wentworth Miller Comes Out To Protest Russia's Regime


Wentworth Miller Stephen Fry

From the outside looking in, Russia have forged a rather unwelcome reputation as a homophobic nation, probably due to their extremist, homophobic laws, which can also see people improvised for speaking out against the regime. Stephen Fry likened the treatment of homosexuality in Russia to that of Judaism in Nazi Germany and the invaded countries. Now another openly celebrity – Prison Break’s Wentworth Miller – has spoken out via the medium of an open letter, in which he came out as gay.

“As a gay man, I must decline,” he wrote, replying to an invitation to the St Petersburg Film Festival; his letter was made public by the campaigning group GLAAD. “I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government,” Wentworth added.

Stoker Review


Excellent

You could argue that this film is all lurid style over substance, but there's actually a lot going on behind the stunningly gorgeous imagery. Korean director Park (Oldboy) beings his lavish visual approach to this Hitchcockian story about a family infiltrated by a predator. Packed with references to iconic movies and books, the film is heightened and deranged, and its intense moodiness gets under the skin.

It centres on 18-year-old India Stoker (Wasikowska), distraught after the death of her beloved father (Mulroney). Without him to soften her, she's also even angrier than usual at her needy mother Evie (Kidman). Then the charming, handsome Uncle Charlie (Goode) turns up at the funeral and moves in to help them grieve. Actually he seems to be trying to seduce Evie, who is flattered by his attention. But the housekeeper (Somerville) and an auntie (Weaver) don't stick around long enough to see what's really going on, and it becomes clear that Charlie actually has his sights set on India.

Both the script and the direction continually echo familiar literary and cinematic icons, from the family's name to the Shakespearean family plot to the prowling interloper (see Robert Mitchum in the 1950s classic The Night of the Hunter). Director Park's camera prowls through the house like a ghost, catching tiny details in every lushly designed scene while finding all kinds of shadings in the performances. Wasikowska is terrific as the sensitive, rather cruel young woman at the centre of the storm, while Kidman steals her scenes with a haunted, conflicted performance. Between them, Goode is almost painfully seductive. And clearly dangerous.

Nicole Kidman Stars In 'Stoker', Sundance Reviews Are In (TRAILER)


Nicole Kidman Mia Wasikowska Matthew Goode Wentworth Miller

The star-studded horror movie Stoker has been in the pipeline for over two years. With an almost unrecognisable Mia Wasikowska in the ever so creepy lead, along with Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Jacki Weaver as support, Stoker has already begun to make waves, enjoying a successful premier at the Sundance Film Festival.

 

Prison Break's Wentworth Miller wrote the script way back in 2010, along with a potential prequel, which he sent out under a pseudonym, reportedly due to him wanting to hear a fair verdict rather than one based on his fame. The outcome was it being listed as one of 2010's 10 best screenplays gone un-produced. All that has been put to rights, with a great cast and an exemplary director, Oldboy's Park Chan-wook.

The Human Stain Review


Weak
Miramax makes its initial bid for Oscar gold with The Human Stain, Robert Benton's torpid adaptation of Philip Roth's acclaimed novel about race and sex and lots of other "big" issues such as the price one pays - emotionally, psychologically, professionally - for attempting to flee both the past and one's true self. Yet this lifelessly structured film feels like a puzzle with too many identical parts, each character merely another example of the film's painfully obvious moral lessons. Throw in some ridiculous miscasting and a facile Clinton-Lewinsky scandal backdrop, and what you've got is a film drunk on its own highfalutin melodrama.

Anthony Hopkins is Coleman Silk, a Classics professor at a Massachusetts university, who, because of an alleged racial epithet (he refers to delinquent African-American students as "spooks"), is not only forced into early retirement, but also into unexpected bachelorhood after his wife suddenly drops dead from the news. Coleman is an erudite Jewish man who harbors a great secret about his past, and soon his tortured life has become intertwined with kindred souls. He befriends the reclusive Nathan Zuckerman (Gary Sinise), a novelist who has retired to a remote cabin after a cancer scare has left him petrified of his own mortality. Soon afterwards, he meets a striking post office janitor named Faunia Farley (Nicole Kidman), who, because of a former marriage and a terrible accident, fervently shuns the outside world. Coleman and Faunia strike up a May-December romance, much to the chagrin of both Faunia's loco ex-husband Lester (Ed Harris) and a community whose fascination with Clinton's sexual indiscretions hints at an illogical obsession with political correctness.

The Human Stain Review


Good

Director Robert Benton's quietly compelling adaptation of Philip Roth's novel "The Human Stain" has two conspicuous problems: The very beginning and the very end, both of which are such arrant cinematic affectations that I knew immediately -- without ever having read the book -- the scenes were supplements of the screenplay.

The film opens with a flash-forward revealing its two main characters in a car crash on an icy road. This disclosure has the opposite of its intended effect -- it squelches half the story's escalating tension because you already know what's coming, even if you don't immediately know the ultimate fate of the people in the car.

The faux pas at the end of the picture is that Benton overshoots a perfect finale (the last scene from the novel, I've since learned) for the sake of a heartstring-tugging Hollywood epilogue.
