Wentworth Miller comes out as gay

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller says he is gay, and he’s received a ton of support from fellow celebs for coming out.

Some other gay celebrities sounded off on Twitter:

Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m proud of Wentworth Miller for speaking out in support of equality. Russia doesn’t know what they’re missing.”

Neil Patrick Harris: “Well done, Wentworth Miller. Bravo.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: “So proud of #WentworthMiller. Coming out can be hard & scary but coming out to send a message of tolerance is heroic.”

Darren Young: “Congrats 2 Wentworth Miller on living his life to the fullest now #beproud!! Big step 2 take. Not easy but well worth it!”

White Collar star Matt Bomer also spoke out to E! News in support of Miller’s choice to come out:

“I hope all these laws continue to pass but we still have a long way to go.”

Wentworth came out in a letter turning down an invitation to attend a film festival in Russia saying as a gay man he “must decline.”
