Actor Ezra Miller Shares #MeToo Story Of Being Sexually Harassed By Director When He Was A Teen
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" star Ezra Miller called the men, whose names he did not share, “monsters.”
Ezra Miller is the latest celebrity to share their #MeToo story.
The 26-year-old actor was once sexually harassed by a director and a producer, he revealed during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on Wednesday.
“They gave me wine and I was underaged,” he told the outlet. “They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?’ And I was like, ‘No, you guys are monsters.’”
Miller did not share the names of the men to whom he was referring, and did not elaborate on the situation. He then went on to praise the #MeToo movement and the changes that are occurring in the entertainment industry.
“It’s a great f**king age of being like, ‘You know what? That s**t’s unacceptable,’” he said. “And it’s amazing for a lot of us to watch ‘cause, like, we all knew it was unacceptable when we f**king survived it. That’s what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers.”
The Hollywood Reporter’s recent interview was not Miller's first time commenting on accountability within the industry. The actor, who has a starring role in the upcoming “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” film as well as a leading role in DC's “Flash” film, commented favorably on the #MeToo movement in an interview with GQ published earlier this week.
“Let’s rehabilitate men,” he said, according to the outlet. “Let’s drop men like flies. I’m with it. And then let’s rehabilitate them when they’re on the ground. This is some Wonder Woman s**t right here. What’s the Amazonian solution to this?”
Miller is one of the few male celebrities who have spoken out about being sexually harassed in Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal. Actors Terry Crews, Brendan Fraser, and James Van Der Beek have all come forward in recent years to speak candidly about the effects harassment and sexual assault have had on their careers.
