What would life be without Wentworth Miller?

Can you imagine!? I don’t think anyone could have played the role of Michael in Prison Break quite as well as Wentworth did.

He spoke about his many suicide attempts when he was a teen at a Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Seattle, Washington.

He says he was 15 when he first attempted to take his own life because he “was a target”.

“I waited for my family to go away for the weekend...and I took a bottle of pills,” said Wentworth.

He went on to say how he thought it would affect his career later in life.

“When I thought about the possibility of coming out and how that would impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear,” he recalled.

Eventually, the pressure became too much and Wentworth stopped pretending.

There was always some speculation about his sexual orientation though, but he recently broke the silence when he took a stand against Russia’s laws against homosexuals after the country invited him to the St. Petersburg Film Festival.
We’re glad you didn’t succeed with the suicide attempts Wenty because you’ve come to be a great inspiration not only to the LBGT  community but also to the rest of world.  

And it would have been such a waste of good eye candy!
