Ezra Miller re­veals his #MeToo story, was ha­rassed as a mi­nor

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

In a back­lash against sex­ual ha­rass­ment, ac­tor Ezra Miller of the Jus­tice League and Fan­tas­tic Beasts fame has come out with his #MeToo story, re­count­ing how an un­named di­rec­tor and pro­ducer took ad­van­tage of him when he was a mi­nor in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

“It was about time that peo­ple in Hollywood knew what kind of be­hav­iour is ac­cept­able and what is not,” Miller tells The Hollywood Re­porter. He adds, “It’s a great f**kin’ age of be­ing like, ‘You know what? That sh*t’s un­ac­cept­able. 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.”

This is the first time the ac­tor has shared his story. “They gave me wine and I was un­der­age,” Miller re­counts, with­out taking names.“They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revo­lu­tion?’ And I was like, ‘No, you guys are monsters.’”

Miller has praised the #MeToo move­ment for be­ing a wa­ter­shed mo­ment that spelt the down­fall of many Hollywood stal­warts such as pro­ducer Harvey We­in­stein, film­maker Brett Rat­ner, and ac­tor Kevin Spacey.
