In recent Hollywood news, WENTWORTH MILLER has admitted that he tried to commit suicide several times when he was young… due to the hardships of keeping his sexual orientation a secret.
One month after officially coming out as a gay man to the public, the actor has once again opened up about his personal struggles with being gay, and how it led to him attempting to commit suicide on multiple occasions when he was a teenager.
Speaking at Saturday’s Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Seattle, Miller shared:
“The first time that I tried to kill myself, I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the weekend and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills.”
The “Prison Break” star continued:
“When someone asked me if that was a cry for help, I said no, because I told no one. You only cry for help if you believe there’s help to cry for. I wanted out.”
At the height of his fame as tattooed hottie Michael Scofield, Wentworth was constantly hounded by gay rumors, but he denied them. He also revealed that had “multiple opportunities to speak” out about his sexual orientation, but “chose not to.”
The actor explained:
“When I thought about the possibility of coming out and how that would impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.”
It wasn’t until last month, of course, when he finally saw an opportunity to come out of the closet-it was after he received an invitation to the St. Petersburg Film Festival in Russia, which he declined due to the country’s strong anti-gay stance.
“I thought, ‘Let me be to someone else what no one was to me.'”

In a shocking new interview with celebrity news, JAMES FRANCO reveals:
“I wish I was gay.”
Since high school, James Franco has been rumored to be gay. It got worse when he started taking on transgender roles and questioning his sexuality, despite having sex scenes with women in his other movies.
But in a candid interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, the “Spring Breakers” actor finally gave a meatier answer to address the pressing question.
When asked about the gay jokes at the recent Comedy Central roast, Franco said:
“If that’s what they were going to make fun of me for, I was like, ‘Great! Bring on the gay jokes!’ because these aren’t insults at all.”
“I don’t even care if people think I’m gay, so it was like, ‘Awesome!’ I mean, I wish I was … I wish I was gay.”
There it is.
An explanation followed:
“My relationship with my public image over the past four or five years has just become weirder and weirder, because I look at it and it’s me, and it’s not me, so if other people want to use that for their own purposes or needs, I’m fine with it.”
About his latest directorial project, “Child of God,” which was based on the Cormac McCarthy novel about a necrophiliac killer, Franco revealed:
“It’s not that I, in my own life, find dead bodies particularly sexy or anything like that, but in a film, it allows you, in a very extreme way, to deal with a character whose imagination has gone to a crazy place.”
“It also deals with loneliness, uncontrollable compulsion, as well as the artistic impulse.”
You weird, weird man.
