Wentworth Miller Was Ready To Die Because He Was Gay
wentworth miller was fighting those demons.
as you know,
he recently just ( x came out the closet ).
he was suicidal while being in the closet.
he spoke at a human rights campaign dinner about his testimony…
“The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the family and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills,” he revealed to a large audience. “I don’t remember what happened over the next couple of days but I’m pretty sure come Monday morning I was on the bus back to school pretending everything was fine.”
“Growing up I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test and there was a thousand ways to fail,” he said. “A thousand ways to portray yourself to not live up to someone else’s standards of what was accepted.”
The former Prison Break star also admitted that it made him nervous to come out early in his career. “I had multiple opportunities to speak my truth, which is that I was gay, but I chose not to. I was out privately to family and friends — publicly, I was not.” He continued: “I chose to lie — when I thought about the possibility of coming out, how that might impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.”
well i’m glad he was able to find his truth.
i hope he finally found peace!
is there anyone out there who wasn’t suicidal because they liked men?
was anyone just content and doing them while being discreet?
