Musician and actor Ezra Miller, perhaps best known for his role as Credence Barebone in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, talked in an interview about his gender identity.
Miller came out as queer in 2012 and, at 26, is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood.
The Hollywood Reporter asked him about his identity as queer.
“Yeah, absolutely. Which is to say, I don’t identify. Like, fuck that,” he said.
“Queer just means no, I don’t do that. I don’t identify as a man. I don’t identify as a woman. I barely identify as a human.”
He also talked about when a director and producer – who he did not name – gave him alcohol, in a possible attempt at sexual assault.
“They gave me wine and I was underaged,” he said. “They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?’ And I was like, ‘No, you guys are monsters.’”
He connected the story to #metoo.
“It’s a great fuckin’ age of being like, ‘You know what? That shit’s unacceptable,’ And it’s amazing for a lot of us to watch. ‘Cause, like, we all knew it was unacceptable when we fucking survived it. That’s what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers.”
