Real Life Hunk of the Month August: Wentworth Miller

Wentworth Miller, 41 years old, born in Oxfordshire (England), he is an actor, model, screenwriter and producer.

He rose to stardom following his role as Michael Scofield in the Fox television series Prison Break, since 2005 to 2009. His performance in the show earned him a 2005 Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series.

As guest actor, he also appeared in other series, some films and music videos. Currently, he made his screenwriting debut with the 2013 dramatic thriller film Stoker, which stars Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska. 

Miller recently came out after being invited to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival in Russia. He revealed he's gay to refuse the assistance to the Russian Film Festival because as a homosexual he thought he had to decline the invitation. Of course, his not participation in that festival is a protest for Russian anti-gay legislation.

He explained that: "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".

Well done!
