M O R F NOTE HE EDITOR T

s e i t i r Celeb THINK LIKE US Last week, Prison Break star (and generally sexy guy) Wentworth Miller came out as gay. It’s newsworthy, in part, just because pretty much any celebrity coming-out story is newsworthy these days. But part of the newsworthiness of Miller’s coming out came from the way he did it – as a political statement in response to an event invitation in Russia. Speculation about Miller’s sexuality has existed since he came into popularity with Prison Break’s premiere years ago, but it’s been a topic about which he initially denied rumors. Since his coming out last week, plenty of Internet commenters have bashed Miller for his earlier statements. As much as I know I should just ignore comment sections on websites (aside from ours, of course!), the comments trouble me. I think we forget sometimes that public figures can have private struggles with their sexuality, just like the rest of us. I know it took quite a few years for me to come to grips with my own sexuality, and I came out at 14. We’ve all heard plenty of stories about people only discovering their sexual orientation later in life. Why do we assume public figures have it easier? Not every actor or singer gets into the business for the fame. Some just want to create art, and they stumble into success. It’s something to consider the next time someone famous comes out. Even if it’s Tom Cruise, Ramson Noah, John Travolta.
