As a matter of fact, he is a Princeton Graduate majoring in English and everybody called him Stinky. Can you believe that? Not because he was a nerd, because of his sarcasm attitude. LOL.

But there was something always troubling him, since his childhood. Depression. The Prison Break actor although became successful hit rock bottom after completion of the fourth season of Prison Break in 2010.

In a Facebook post, the troubled actor revealed that because of depression he had suicidal thoughts. To cope with that he took to foods. As a result, he gained weight and people made fun of him. His words exactly,

It's a battle that's cost me time, opportunities, relationships, and a thousand sleepless nights. And I put on weight. Big f--king deal.Long story short, I survived. So do those pictures. I'm glad.

He is a fighter and of course a gentleman (He was thoughtful of words!). He is an English, dude!

Now here's something strange. People are allergic to animals. That's normal but Wentworth Miller is allergic to people. That's odd, right? You think he made this up.

Probably but according to sources, he got rashes after he had to hug Dominic in a scene during a shooting for Prison Break.

Additionally, the ridiculously handsome actor is also a writer. There's no denying that he is quite successful but there's no without a few blocks on the road.

Wentworth Miller Comes as Gay

As they say, save the best for the last. But the biggest shock probably is the Prison Break star coming out of the closet. Even though the sex symbol previously denied the gay rumors but it was for the sake of the show.

Obviously, the Flash actor could not put his career at risk. But he gained confidence after Prison Break, he admitted in an interview.

After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of 'We don't address that thing'.

The British-American actor was also nominated for the Best Actor in a Dramatic Series. He was invited by St. Petersburg Film Festival in 2013 but he declined without any hesitation. The reason was simple; he was gay and Russia was anti-LGBT.

The internationally acclaimed star further made sure everyone not to be confused about his sexual orientation. He wrote a letter which read.

As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia 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. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government.
