Tiger of the Week

Professionally, Wentworth Miller ’95 had a pretty good year. An actor best known for his role on the Fox television series Prison Break, Miller wrote the screenplay for Stoker, a thriller that hit theaters in March and received good reviews. His second screenplay, The Disappointments Room, is scheduled to begin filming next year. But Miller’s most notable piece of writing may have been the 120-word letter he wrote in August to decline an invitation to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival in Russia.
“Thank you for your kind invitation,” Miller began. “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. However, as a gay man, I must decline.”
Out magazine, which recently named Miller its Newsmaker of the Year, wrote that there “have been many powerful coming-out statements, but few as elegant and considered as Miller’s letter.” He went on to criticize the Russian government for denying its LGBT residents “their basic right to live and love openly.” But the story didn’t end there. At a Human Rights Campaign event in September, Miller spoke about his difficult teenage years, including a suicide attempt at age 15, sharing his story in the hope that it would encourage others to seek help.

There have been many powerful coming-out statements, but few as elegant and considered as Miller’s letter this August declining an invitation to be honored at the St. Petersburg International 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. However, as a gay man, I must decline,” Miller wrote to festival director Maria Averbakh.
“Like everyone, I’d been reading reports online about what was happening in Russia,” Miller says. “So when the invitation arrived, I thought, There is no way I can say yes. Then it occurred to me that if I made my response public, it might help draw additional attention to the situation. It felt like the right move at the right time.”

Best known to millions of Americans for his role as Michael Scofield in the hit Fox series Prison Break (for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2006), Miller has since transitioned from acting to writing. He was responsible for the screenplay to this year’s well-received thriller Stoker, starring Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, and Mia Wasikowska, and has another screenplay, The Disappointments Room, in development with Voltage Pictures and Christine Vachon’s Killer Films.

Estoy subiendo esta foto porque Wentworth Miller, un fino caballero de 41 años, que luce como de 35, el miércoles 6 de noviembre, dio las más increíbles e íntimas respuestas … nunca vi un solo episodio de Prison Break, así que cuando supe que WM vendría a la Universidad a participar de una charla, no pude evitar recordar brevemente a una amiga que me había dicho cuan sexy le parecía él. Cuando ella agregó: “Pero yo pienso que debe ser gay” , no volví a pensar en él. Cuatro años después, fui la encargada de escoltarlo desde el auto que lo había traído de Pasadena, hasta Kerckhoff Hall. Bajó luciendo relajado y con una mochila colgando de su hombro derecho. Me sorprendió que fuera más alto que yo, pues siempre en las fotos me había parecido bajo. “Soy Wentworth, dijo él… soy Jessica, respondí…”Su mano envolvió la mía. Bromeé con él un poco como Brittney y caminamos hacia la habitación donde daría la charla. Fue realmente amable. Finalmente, comenzó a hablar. Lo más sorprendente fue como él cambiaba toda ligera, divertida o predecible pregunta, en una profunda y perspicaz respuesta. Habló abiertamente de su salida del closet, de sus intentos de suicidio, a pesar de que ni remotamente se le preguntó acerca de eso. Quedó claro cuan profunda y fuertemente  él siente acerca de muchas cosas. Es un hombre muy perspicaz, que ha pasado mucho  tiempo sumido en la oscuridad y el miedo. Dijo que ahora se siente liberado, y que su régimen de vida ha cambiado desde que ha salido del closet. Nos contó las más hermosas historias en forma elocuente. WM es actor y escritor, pero además se mostró como un compasivo ser humano que ha explorado las oscuras profundidades de su mente y su alma. Es inteligente y valiente. Me ha hecho pasar esa noche una hora que nunca olvidaré.
 Nosotros estamos  culturalmente preparados sobre cómo reaccionar frente a una “salida del closet”, pero hay un largo silencio todavía, cuando nos enteramos que previamente a eso, la situación lo condujo al suicidio.
Gracias, Wentworth Miller , no sólo por ser tan paciente con la gente que rogaba por una foto, sino por haber sido tan honesto. Eso es algo raro en estos días.
