- Ezra Miller reveals his harassment story
- He points out the reason why it’s important for people to tell their stories
In the day and age where we are still hearing about women #MeToo movements and women coming out in public about their horrible experiences of sexual abuse, there are a few men who also have been talking to media to share their own terrible experiences they faced as a child.
Ezra Miller came out in the public to divulge about his sexual harassment story when he was a teenager. Sharing about the experiences he suffered as an underage, he revealed to the Hollywood Reporter how he was treated with exploitative behavior. He said a director and producer tried to give wine to him.
He said, “They gave me wine and I was underage.” “They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?’ And I was like, ‘No, you guys are monsters.”
How Ezra Miller feels about the #Metoo Movement
He expressed how important it was for everyone to come out in the public about their own experiences.
He revealed “amazing for a lot of us to watch,” saying that the movement helped him feel empowered to come forward with his own experiences. “It’s a great fucking age of being like, ‘You know what? That shit’s unacceptable.” “Cause, like, we all knew it was unacceptable when we fucking survived it. That’s what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers,” he said.
How to change lives according to Ezra Miller
Though he did not divulge into too many details about his experience, he pointed out the positives about the whole movement. In an interview with GQ magazine, he said “Let’s rehabilitate men. Let’s drop men like flies. I’m with it. And then let’s rehabilitate them when they’re on the ground. This is some Wonder Woman shit right here. What’s the Amazonian solution to this?”
In continuation to this, he also told GQ magazine that “We have a lot of eagles out here, and if an eagle starts dive-bombing the crew, the rooster will go out separate from the herd and pretend to be injured, so that the eagle will come and kill the rooster instead of hurting any of his babies. That’s masculinity,”
He described. “That’s what it’s supposed to look like, you know what I mean? ‘I’m going to pretend to be weak, I’m going to pretend to be vulnerable so that you attack me before you’d attack one of the women in my posse.’ You feel me?”
With the #MeToo movement and people like Ezra Miller coming out with their stories, let’s just hope that the world becomes a safer place to live for everyone, irrespective of gender.
