Just saw him give the best performance in Perks of Being a Wallflower. He was quite good playing Tilda Swinton's psychopathic son in that movie from last year.
I don't think that a young actor (19) with leading man potential has come out as Queer at such as early age. It wil be interesting to what kinds of roles he is now offered and what kind of career he will have.
What the hell does 'Queer' mean?
He looks dirty and druggy. He looks like he doesn't bother to wipe his butt.
He's certainly a talented actor, but I don't agree that he has the necessary leading man looks. Maybe for indie flicks, but not mainstream H-wood fare, where he'll probably always be a supporting player.
He basically said he prefers girls but has had experiences with boys too so bi-sexual I assume R1.
He is gay baiting. He is going to be a superstar.
Ezra Miller, Kristen Stewart, and James Franco walked into a bar...
He's never even touched a man in a sexual way. He's just trying to be edgy.
R.7--Have you read his interview in Out? "So I went from having a stutter to being a totally gay little opera singer to being, like, a realy confused queer adolescent."
Unlike Tom Hardy,he hasn't backed off from that interview and continues to talk about being queer in subsequent interviews.
Yes he says "queer" as in weird. He is gay baiting you, fool. He never said he had gay sex and he'll laugh about this for years in future interviews.
"And then the best friend he fooled around with turned on him."
R.9--Fess up. Are you his ex-zefriend?
The Perks of Being a Wallflower looks like it's a piece of warmed over pablum from the mid-1990s. I was on the fringes of emo in college and I remember my friends loved the book, but it seemed a little too angsty for my tastes.
I've made it a point to catch any indie film Ezra Miller has been in since seeing him in "Afterschool." He seemed to be getting the roles once given to the young Christian Slater, and he definitely can act. He previously played a gay teen in "Every Day", and I thought that and "Perks" were good, realistic character portrayals. "We Need To Talk About Kevin" was shamefully overlooked during awards season last year.
[quote]He never said he had gay sex
“I've had many, you know, 'happy ending sleepovers' in my early youth”
R15, and you can't possibly know either.. unless you're him. I guess we'll see soon enough if he's dating boys too or just girls.
Nope R15, I'm just an indie film fan who has enjoyed the movies he's been in, regardless of what character he plays or who he dates in real life. He's going to be in Sophie Barthes' adaptation of Madame Bovary next.
He gave a really risky performance in We Need To Talk About Kevin. Like his "Queer Mentor" Tilda Swinton, he's not worried about playing unsympathetic characters.
Why was his character unsympathetic? I liked him.
is he Asian?
R20--You're killing me.
He's beautiful. But not gay. But very good at acting.
Would love to see him publicly date a guy. That would be a representation of progress unmatched so far.
“I think at this point in our world, we’ve got a really confused idea of the way gender and sexuality works. I think we’ve created this really superfluous sort of like binary in the way we think about gender. And I guess I identify as queer because I don’t identify with that. I think that makes us less whole as people. I don’t need to be assigned to what it is I can do or who I can love. And it seems like we keep drawing these battle lines which are completely unnecessary. So that’s what I basically mean. When I say I’m queer, I’m saying that I think human beings are amazing. And love is an honor and an opportunity. And a fragile thing. A fragile process in which there’s no room for doubt, or shame, or hatred.”

An interesting look for him. Not sure if I like it.
Definitely agree R28. It is odd to me that his career isn't hotter right now after very acclaimed performances in "We Need to Talk about Kevin" and "Perks..."
I really hope that is by choice and he isn't seriously not getting roles because he is open about his sexual orientation, he is a fantastic actor.
And he played the troubled son (again!) of Ellen Barkin in Another Happy Day. Funny, thing, he wasn't the craziest person on screen. That honor would go to Demi Moore as his step-Mom.
