Ezra Miller is living his best life. He spends his time away from starring in multiple massive film franchises like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Justice League sipping green juice on his farm in Vermont waiting for his goats to go into labor. Oh, and he also has thoughts on the reckoning within Hollywood and the men at the center of the #MeToo movement.
“Let’s rehabilitate men,” Miller told GQ Style for the magazine’s latest cover story. “Let’s drop men like flies. I’m with it. And let’s rehabilitate them when they’re on the ground. This is some Wonder Woman shit right here. What’s the Amazonian solution to this?”
Miller used the chickens on his farm when illustrating what he thinks masculinity should look like. “The rooster will die for any of his chickens,” he said. “We have a lot of eagles out here, and if an eagle starts dive-bombing the crew, the rooster will go out separate from the herd and pretend to be injured, so that the eagle will come and kill the rooster instead of hurting any of his babies. That’s masculinity. That’s what it’s supposed to look like, you know what I mean? I’m going to pretend to be weak, I’m going to pretend to be vulnerable so that you attack me before you’d attack one of the women in my posse. You feel me?”
Miller thinks the human world could use more of that kind of masculinity. “I’m looking for a man like that,” he said. “I don’t know about you. I’m looking for a rooster-type man.”
Miller, who came out as queer in 2012, also spoke with the fashion mag about his gender expression and flaunted his fluid style in clothes from both men’s and women’s collections. See the shoot and read the full story, here.
