Confession here: I’ve been a Wentworth Miller fan for years, and I really think he’s one of the most under appreciated actors in Hollywood. I mean, the man has a presence on both the small and big screen and that’s something you simply can’t deny.
The actor opens up to Out Magazine this month about one of his darkest moments in his life. The entire interview is pretty interesting. Here’s a snippet:
“I remember carrying around deep feelings of shame after I tried to kill myself, feeling like I’d stumbled or failed life’s exam. That I was now ‘damaged goods.’ What I would say to that younger self — what I’d say to anyone who’s walked a similar road — is to focus less on the fact that you nearly ended your life and more on the fact that you survived, that you lived to tell the tale. And then tell it.
“I’d say, ‘What you think of as scars are medals. They’re badges of honor, testifying to something inside you that is determined and tenacious and enduring.’”
Wentworth, your fans are always here for you! Although I’m so glad he’s in such a better place with his life now.
