Ezra Miller Opens Up About Past Abuse And Why He’s In Non-Monogamous Relationships
“We love each other so much.”
Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald star Ezra Miller sent the world into a tailspin after Playboy dropped photos of him posing in fishnets, bunny ears, and high heels, but the accompanying interview is the true holy grail.
Ezra opens up about exploring polyamory, and his reasoning behind making the decision to reject monogamy after a string of heartbreaks. It’s truly eye opening, and the positivity-led content 2018 is in dire need of.
Instead of referencing his relationships as polyamorous he prefers to use the term “polycule” – a combination of polyamorous and molecule, which is made up of close friends.
“I’m trying to find queer beings who understand me as a queer being off the bat, who I make almost a familial connection with, and I feel like I’m married to them 25 lifetimes ago from the moment we meet,” he said. “And then they are in the squad — the polycule.”
“And I know they’re going to love everyone else in the polycule because we’re in the polycule, and we love each other so much,” he went on to add.
Ezra explained how he identifies as queer due to, for him, it meaning “an umbrella of non-identification.”
The interview also touched upon sexual assault and abuse, with Ezra discussing his own experiences, saying: “I’ve survived abuse for sure, for sure, in a lot of capacities, starting from a pretty young age.”
“There was a close friend who I had a sexual relationship with who really, really turned on me in a violent way… I’ve been attacked repeatedly in my life — I’ve been attacked by f*cking bigots, man,” he said.
The actor acknowledged that he’s not alone too, and is aware of it, as LGBTQ+ people are disproportionately more prone to such experiences, adding: “It’s really important to acknowledge the diversity of voices who have experienced this sh*t, and all genders, all capacities, all types of people. Everyone is victim to it. Everyone is a survivor of it.”
