The Actor whose real name is Wenworth Miller, recently made his homosexual sexuality public. He made this stunning revelation when turning down an invitation to be an honoured guest at a film festival (the St. Petersburg International Film Festival) in Russia.
In a letter to the organizers of the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, the 41 years old miller said that he cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like himself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
The Russian government recently passed a law against representations of “non-traditional sexual relations" in june that outlawed gay and homosexual relationships in russia. The Prison break star said that he is “deeply troubled by the attitudes toward and treatment of gay people by the Russian government.”
“The situation is in no way acceptable" he said. “Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice.”
Wenworth Miller is the recent celebrity to have turned up the heat on the Russian government over the anti gay law. The pressure is building up as the country is expected to host the 2014 winter Olympics. A sporting event that will feature thousands of athletes with different sexual orientation.
It remains to be seen how mr. Scofield's fan will take this news. especially the female fan who have been crushing after the star actor.
