Ezra Miller, the 26-year-old queer actor who most recently starred in the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, recently told Playboy magazine that he and an older boy in elementary school used to jerk each other off.
Miller also revealed that he was bullied as a kid for having a speech impediment, that he has had his sexuality leveraged against him in acting auditions and that he keeps a polyamorous group of sexual partners called a polycule.
The interview included seductive images of Miller posing in Playboy‘s trademark bunny ears, fishnet stockings, size 14 heels, a gossamer blouse, frilly lingerie and a white jumpsuit.
In the interview itself, Miller confesses that he and an older elementary school boy “would jerk each other off while we interacted with [copies of Playboy and the Kama Sutra] stuff in various ways.”
Miller also speaks about his attraction to more than one gender, saying that he has “experienced a lot of heartbreak.”
The interview states, “[Miller] says he has abandoned trying to find his perfect romantic partner, deciding that monogamy isn’t for him. Calling himself a ‘sexual being,’ he instead finds companionship with a group of sexual partners he refers to as his ‘polycule,’ a portmanteau of ‘polyamorous molecule.'”
Miller says the polycule is made of “queer beings who understand me as a queer being off the bat.” He feels a strong familial and marital connection to its members and says that everyone in the group loves each other very much.
Near the end of the interview, Miller weeps while discussing being bullied by people in school for a speech impediment, getting attacked “by f*cking bigots” and having sexuality leveraged against him in acting auditions.
Miller says, “It’s really important to acknowledge the diversity of voices who have experienced this sh*t, and all genders, all capacities, all types of people. Everyone is victim to it. Everyone is a survivor of it.”
Miller has lately become the media’s most openly queer celebrity. Earlier this month, he came out as non-binary, discussed being attacked for wearing floral clothing and shared a story of sexual harassment early into his career.
Earlier this year, Miller attended Comic-Con dressed as a sexy female character from Super Mario Brothers and kissed a male fan while there. As a rising mainstream star, his public embrace of gender-fluidity, pansexuality and polyamory are all refreshingly queer and trailblazing.
