SINCE Wentworth Miller publicly came out as gay in late August last year, the actor has remained fairly tight lipped about his private life.

As the former Prison Break star prepares for his return in the limelight with upcoming film The Loft, Miller has spoken candidly in an interview with Details magazine about acting, depression and coming out.

 “After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt,” Miller said in the interview.

“I was out to a handful of people in my 20s, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of ‘we don’t address that thing’.”

When asked about his female fans, Miller diplomatically responded: “I think it’s possible to have a man-crush if you’re not gay or to have a crush on a guy you know to be gay if you’re a woman. Attraction is fluid, and I think our imaginations are strong enough to hold a container for all of this complexity, even if we know on a subconscious level something’s not what it appears to be.”

The trailer for The Loft is available to watch below:
