Former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has broken some very personal news about himself:
The actor made this public reveal while simultaneously taken a stance against Russia's anti-homosexual legislation, which bans any sort of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."
In response to an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, Miller wrote a letter that has been posted on the GLADD website and which reads:
"Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline."
The 41-year-old actor continued:
"I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government."
"The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
"If circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice."
The anti-gay law in Russia is creating a number of issues for that country, which is preparing to host the Winter Olympics in early 2014.
Earlier this month, a Russian reporter came out on air... and was promptly fired.
And earlier this week, two Russian females kissed on the medal stand of the World Athletics Championships, seemingly sending a message to their government.
What do you think of Wentworth's statement, and decision?
