Ezra Miller re­veals #MeToo story, was ha­rassed as mi­nor

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

In a back­lash against sex­ual harass­ment, ac­tor Ezra Miller has come out with his own #MeToo story, re­count­ing how an un­named di­rec­tor and pro­ducer took ad­van­tage of him when he was a mi­nor.

It was about time that peo­ple in Hol­ly­wood knew what kind of be­hav­iour is ac­cept­able and what is not, Miller told The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter.

“It’s a great fu*kin’ age of be­ing like, ‘You know what? That shit’s un­ac­cept­able,’ And it’s amaz­ing for a lot of us to watch. ‘Cause, like, we all knew it was un­ac­cept­able when we fu*king sur­vived it. That's what Hol­ly­wood is. I thought we all knew we were sex work­ers,” he said.

This is the first time the “Fan­tas­tic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindle­wald” ac­tor has shared his story.

“They gave me wine and I was un­der­age,” Miller re­counted, with­out tak­ing any names.

“They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revo­lu­tion?’ And I was like, ‘No, you guys are mon­sters’,” he added.

Miller praised the #MeToo move­ment for be­ing a wa­ter­shed mo­ment that spelt the down­fall of many a stal­wart like Har­vey We­in­stein and Brett Rat­ner. - PTI
