The vampiric, heroin-chic, buzzy actor Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin) recently came out to Out in the open-ended manner that is popular nowadays (see: Frank Ocean, who avoided labels when revealing his past love for a man). Here is Miller's statement.
I'm queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I've been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don't know if it's responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don't think we're ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that's what you're supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love — even if it is love — we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it's possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I'm super down with being irresponsible. I'm just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That's where I'm at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.
Miller reportedly did have a zoefriend, though: he's been romantically linked to Zoe Kravitz. Also notable: His character in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower is gay.
Earlier this year, Miller recalled "many, you know, ‘happy ending sleepovers' in my early youth" in an interview. He just keeps revealing more. What's next? Fisting enthusing? Pontification on the perks of being a power bottom?
I kid. This is awesome. It's especially nice to hear a 19-year-old baby call himself "queer" and back it up. Kids today don't seem to like that word too much.
