Ezra Miller has shared a story about being inappropriately treated by men in Hollywood when he was underage.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star is reprising his role as Credence Barebone in the upcoming sequel to the Harry Potter spin-off but has admitted to when Hollywood producers offered him wine when he was underage and wanted him to star in a movie about ‘gay revolution’.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: “They gave me wine and I was underaged.

“They were like, ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?’ and I was like, ‘No, you guys are monsters’.

“It’s a great fucking age of being like, ‘You know what? That’s shit’s unacceptable’.

“And it’s amazing for a lot of us to watch. Because, like, we all knew it was unacceptable when we fucking survived it.

“That’s what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers.”

The 26-year-old actor also admitted that he doesn’t identify as a male or female.

He continued: “Yeah, absolutely. Which is to say, I don’t identify. Like, fuck that.

“Queer just means no, I don’t do that. I don’t identify as a man. I don’t identify as a woman – I barely identify as a human.”
