And the interviews, they keep on cummin

THIS is the man that I love. I haven’t been this happy with an interview in a long, long time. It’s an old one but there is some new information and there are also some more detailed answers. I’m smiling from ear to ear right now. *sigh*

He has a degree from a top university, talent by the bucket load and a sensitive side to die for. Wentworth Miller, 35, reveals to Annette Dasey that he’s more than TV’s sexiest escapee.

You’ve said you’re more of a loner than a social butterfly. Has that changed since you’ve become so well known?
Yeah. It’s a luxury I can’t afford. I would never describe myself as a people person but I spend my days on a set putting together a show that involves hundreds of other people or off promoting that show and meeting hundreds of other people. I saw an old interview with Jack Nicholson where he said that the average celebrity meets more people in one year than the average person meets in their entire life and that feels true to me. I don’t know if it’s true scientifically or it would be possible to prove percentage wise but it just feels like the truth and consequently, when I have a weekend off or a night to myself, it’s a choice between hanging out on my couch watching a video or going down to the local bar and inevitably being cornered by someone and grilled about the tattoo for two hours, I’ll choose the former. I think it’s important to have a little bit of balance. I think people, myself included, or myself especially, need time to gather your thoughts to process what is happening to you, especially since my life has changed in many ways so dramatically over the last year and a half. It’s a lot to process.

What are the other negatives and positives of being in a hit show?
I’d say the most significant positive is not only is it a great show, I have a place to go to every morning, a steady paycheck, which as an actor is a rarity and a luxury, but it’s opened so many doors for me. The feature film world in the US its all about, “Do they know you overseas?” because it does matter how well a movie does domestically but the foreign markets count for a great deal and the fact that Prison Break is this international hit, and my name now means something in Korea, and South Africa, and Australia, only helps me as far as getting in the door on certain feature film projects that I couldn’t, or didn’t, have access to before, which is great. Of course, the down side is that you’re working on a TV show that’s 22 episodes a year, it takes eight days to film an entire episode, all of those days are between 14 and 17 hours long, so when I have my two months off in which I can go do a movie, I’m too tired. And that’s fine because Prison Break is kind of my priority, it’s my baby, and that’s where my attention goes first and foremost. As far as the negatives, there’s a certain strange identity theft that seems to be more and more prevalent. It’s only natural in the business of fantasy, so people have fantasies about you, and some of them are based on some kind of truth, some of them are not, but it doesn’t matter whether they have any kind of accuracy, they’re online, or in magazines, people can print anything about you, say anything about you that they want, and there’s really nothing you can do it about except, I suppose, go to court if you have enough time and money. And mostly it amuses me. There’s a billboard in Korea, apparently, where they’re using my image to advertise tests for prostate cancer for a Korean hospital, and they’ve just picked a random photo from some shoot for GQ I did a couple of years ago and without my permission are using me to push their particular cause, which is kind of funny actually but then my agent gets phone calls from people wanting to know which myspace page is mine, and the truth is I’ve never been on myspace but there are maybe a dozen Wentworth Miller myspace pages, and people answering fan mail as me, blogging as me, and it’s a little disturbing. I don’t care that they’re doing it. I do care that someone who might actually like the show and want to communicate with me in some way, shape or form turns to one of these other outlets and starts communicating with someone who’s not me. I’m very protective of the fans and their experience of the show and people on the show and I certainly wouldn’t want some innocent 10-year-old to fall into the wrong hands communicating with someone they think is Wentworth Miller and they’re not.

What’s the most hurtful thing that’s been written about you?
On a website someone wrote, “I just found out that Wentworth Miller’s a Brit. I guess that explains his crap American accent.” I was a baby when I moved [to the US]! This is my accent. This is how I talk. But they found out that I was a dual citizen, because I was born there so I’m a dual citizen with the UK, and I guess assumed that the way I talk on the show is some kind of put-on American accent but it’s not obviously.

Did that make you paranoid about how you talk?
No. You have to laugh at these things. It’s tempting, and I think natural, to give credit or to assign value, weight to these random opinions you read online. I’ve made the mistake of reading someone’s review of the show and assumed that they knew something about acting, that they knew something about TV, but the fact is they might not, they could just be a disgruntled 16-year-old in Kansas who’s just sounding off about Prison Break but you’ve assigned them the same kind of weight and value as a reporter in Entertainment Weekly and that, of course, is a mistake because you’re opening yourself up to harsh words from ignorant sources.

You’ve admitted that you’ve made up answers in interviews.
Only once or twice. It was about things that didn’t particularly matter like, “Who’s my favourite designer” or “What cologne do I prefer” and it just makes me laugh that it’s assumed because I’m an actor on a TV show that I have opinions about these things and that my opinions are worth listening to.

What do you think about the cult of celebrity and the fact that we look up to celebrities for their opinions on important issues?
It concerns me. I think it’s a very dangerous game to play when you assume that just because someone’s an entertainer they’re automatically a role model. Entertainers are there to entertain. They aren’t there to teach your children the lessons that you haven’t bothered to teach them at home yourself. They’re just doing their own version of entertaining. They’re not by definition role models, and then we act all disappointed and scandalised when they do something disappointing or scandalising. There are people who are out there using their celebrity status for good works and that’s commendable but mostly the obsession with celebrity is dangerous because I think most magazines and entertainment news shows sell this idea that somewhere out there is a better, more interesting, more glamorous, more beautiful life than yours, which makes you dissatisfied with what you have and you believe that life exists and the truth is that it doesn’t or, if it does, the people involved aren’t really having the great time you think they’re having and that can be dangerous because I think life is about learning to be content with what you’ve got, making the most out of what you’ve been lucky enough to get rather than spending your days envying, and inevitably, I think, hating the people who you think have something they don’t.

Was that a lesson you had to learn, when your career went quiet after you made The Human Stain? Was it hard for you to come to terms with the fact that there wasn’t this ideal life out there for you?
Well that was never why I was in it to begin with. I didn’t come to Hollywood to get on magazine covers or start my Porsche collection or to enjoy that kind of lifestyle, to go to the right parties and meet the right people. I came to Hollywood eventually because I wanted to act, I wanted to entertain, to tell inspiring stories that touched people’s lives in some way so not working after The Human Stain was frustrating on a professional level but I never once thought, “Gee, I really wish I could afford to do A, B and C and be one of those glamorous people.” That never for a second appealed to me and I think that if it had I wouldn’t have stuck it out because those people who come to Hollywood and are only interested in the superficial things, who are interested in only the lifestyle, if they don’t get it, if they don’t achieve some kind of success really soon, they have to go home because there’s nothing there for them to grab onto. But as far as I was concerned, I love acting and that’s something I couldn’t walk away from. That’s why I was staying and that’s what got me through the lean years, the hard times, knowing that if nothing else I had to see this through.

You’ve said you’re a perfectionist. Do you think that’s a help or a hindrance?
It’s both. It’s a double-edged sword. It means that you’re hard on yourself—of course you expect the best—and when you don’t deliver the best in your opinion you can beat yourself up a little bit. I have very high expectations of myself. I’m a very competitive person but competitive with myself. I want to be the best that I can be and if that means that I’m eventually better than everyone else then so be it. But I don’t go around comparing and contrasting myself with other actors if I can help it. It’s also, I think, the key to my success. There were a number of lessons I learned as a student, about discipline, follow through, you know, something as simple as proofreading a paper that you wrote, making sure that you’ve got a period where a period should be instead of a coma or a semi-colon. That kind of attention to detail. Caring about the work, down to the smallest moment, is also what shows up as far as doing good work, telling a story, like we do in Prison Break. Finding those little moments, those little beats, that the writers didn’t anticipate, that you find, that tell your audience something new and unexpected about the character that you’re playing. There’s a lot of crossover, I think, between your approach to life in general and art, if you’re lucky enough to be involved in art.

If you say you’re really hard on yourself, how do you feel you’re doing?
Well, I turn that kind of attention, that need to do whatever I’m doing the best that I can do it, I turn that attention to today. I don’t worry about tomorrow. I don’t worry about a week from now. I surrender the idea of having some kind of control over the arc of my career a lot of the time because you never know what tomorrow’s going to bring. Prison Break might be the first of many successes. It might be the pinnacle of my career and everything afterward will just be anti-climactic. You’ll never know and there’s no sense worrying about things that you can’t predict or control. The only thing you can do is focus your attention on what you have, what’s in your lap right now, and try to make the best of it.

You have an English literature degree from Princeton University. Do you have any aspirations to be a writer?
I do, actually, I do. I think no actor can not feel as though they would like a little bit more control within the creative process because no matter how good you are, you perform a scene the way you want to perform it and then someone else edits it, puts it together, slices it up and puts it together the way they see fit, so at the end of the day your performance is not really your own because so many people have kind of tinkered with it on it’s way to airing on TV. So the idea of writing the words that come out of my mouth or being the one in the editing room putting together my performance, definitely appeals to me.

Have you written anything or have any plans?
I have. I’ve written a treatment, which is an outline, for a movie. It’s kind of love story with a Hitchcock twist. A bit of a thriller, and when I go back to Los Angeles, on my weekends off from the show, I meet with writers and producers and try to get people excited about it, try to get a team of people together who are going to help me get this movie made. Of course there’s a great role for me! I’m at that stage of my career right now where it’s not just about auditioning for the projects that are out there. It’s about generating your own projects and that’s really something that excites me.

Does it have a title?
Yes. It’s called Stoker, which is a nod to Bram Stoker who wrote Dracula. It’s got a lot of elements of the Dracula mythology in its story.

Will you play the Dracula character?
It’s not a vampire story. It’s not about vampires at least with the teeth and the desire to suck your blood but it is a thriller and it is about an individual who preys on the innocent.

And it’s romantic?
It’s a love story. Because I think my interpretation of the Dracula story is that it’s a romance. I think it’s very sad. I think one way to look at it is it’s about a monster who’s kind of shuffling through the centuries looking for someone to love him—fangs and all—like everyone’s looking for someone to love them fangs and all, and when he finds his bride to be, when he chooses his Mrs Dracula, I think there’s a part of us as the audience that wants them to get together but inevitably the big blonde beefy hero steps in and puts a stake through his heart and denies him the love he wants and I think that’s kind of sad.

What’s your idea of a perfect date?
You know, it’s funny I once said something about going ice skating because one of the best dates I had in high school was when I took this girl who I’d been in love with for two years, who I didn’t think even knew my name actually, ice skating so that, for me, has become a signifier of something particularly romantic. And I ran into a couple of people who read that quote, friends of mine, and they teased me, because they assumed I meant some starry night and a frozen pond in the countryside and you and your honey doing figure eights, scarves fluttering behind you and that’s not what I meant at all. I meant schlepping down to the local rink and putting on those cheap skates that give your feet blisters and kind of shuffling once around the rink and falling on your ass and then calling it a day and retiring to the cafeteria for two cups of really crappy hot chocolate. That’s kind of my idea of a romantic night out! I guess that’s kind of twisted but hey, different strokes for different folks.

Are you seeing someone at the moment?
No. Nothing serious.

If you could request a song while you were skating around the rink what would it be?
Well, it would have to be, since the whole thing is a flashback to my high school days, something kind of appropriate to that decade. What were we listening to back then? I think there was a lot of Beastie boys in there so yeah maybe Beastie Boys.

Have you ever had celebrity crushes?
I have. I have. Law & Order had a tremendous impact on me, because Sam Waterston is a role model, I think, someone who’s just serving up award worthy work, episode after episode for years, year after year, and it kind of reminded me that there is great work being done in TV as well as film. At the same time, of course, he had Angie Harmon playing his Assistant D.A. [District Attorney] and she’s one of my ideals as far as women go: beautiful but more than that, smart. She’s like this beautiful, aggressive, barracuda, relentlessly going after her prey. It was pretty hot.

Does she know that?
I’ve never met her and even if I did I wouldn’t know what to say. I certainly wouldn’t say she was a beautiful barracuda, I don’t think that really sounds like a compliment even though I meant it as one.

    😯

  4. miller_thriller

    OMG i think i’ve falled in love with him all over again! I just love how gorgeously sweet he is. He had me hook line and sinker

    – when he refers to PB as “it’s my baby, and that’s where my attention goes first and foremost”
    -when he says “I’m very protective of the fans…I certainly wouldn’t want some innocent 10-year-old to fall into the wrong hands”
    -and when talking about his date, he calls the girl (or guy) “your honey”

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! he is so adorable.

  5. miller_thriller

    Lol, when reading this:

    I think it’s very sad. I think one way to look at it is it’s about a monster who’s kind of shuffling through the centuries looking for someone to love him…when he finds his bride to be…I think there’s a part of us as the audience that wants them to get together but inevitably the big blonde beefy hero steps in and puts a stake through his heart and denies him the love he wants and I think that’s kind of sad.

    why did i think of him and luke??

    Lol is he trying to tell us his pain that he is locked in that damn closet??? If he is indeed ‘projecting’ then i feel sorry for our babyboy, cuz I want him to be happy and, well, not be able to relate to dracula’s pain.

    Yes, i am aware that i am reading to much into this, but i just get that feeling from it. *ducking from rocks*

    No. Nothing serious.

    Squeeeeeeee he is totally using someone for sex…..

    I guess that’s kind of twisted but hey, different strokes for different folks.

    hahahahhahah What a lovely interview

  7. sara

    miller_thriller reading the interview I thought exactly the same thing about Went and Luke 🙂

    By the way does someone know how long ago he gave this interview?

  8. HIKER

    “A
    September 20th, 2007 at 11:07 am
    WM is a liar, what a surprise!”

    —>A, this is an OLD interview, pre-Luke era!

    And if he talk about a girl he was in love with, you should know that a gay man CAN be in love with a woman in a platonic way!

    I should know, my younger brother (a true homo now in his twenties,) was madly in love with a friend of mine (girl) when he was sixteen. I remember carrying letters for her from him.
    Simply, it never become sexual…

  9. Mink

    I really, really hope people don’t read into this tale of teenage romance that it means anything more than a sweet story.

    I don’t necessarily think he’s lying re. what he did when he was much younger, but I don’t think he’d be going on any dates to skating rinks with girls now either.

    To me, this is more telling:

    “At the same time, of course, he had Angie Harmon playing his Assistant D.A. [District Attorney] and she’s one of my ideals as far as women go: beautiful but more than that, smart.”

    “…as far as women go”? These words again tell me he’s not lying, but AH really is just an ideal “as far as women go”.

    Overall this is a great interview, and I’m really glad the journalist to whom he gave it (presumably during his Australia visit last year) finally decided to print the full and unexpurgated version.

  10. Erika

    Normally the first words that comes to mind after I read or watch a Went interview are “sexy”,”hot” and “orgasmic”. But this particular interview reminded me just how humble, wise and smart the guy really is…still orgasmic though. How can I contain myself from falling even deeper inlove with this man? Is what I am feeling, for a guy who is impossible to reach, normal? OMG I am going all girly… somebody, quickly slap me out of it!!

  11. OK, Mink, I freaked out a bit at that very part as well (“as far as women go”).
    But I’m really, really good at denying. 😉

  12. Rumpelstiltskin

    “…because one of the best dates I had in high school was when I took this girl who I’d been in love with for two years, who I didn’t think even knew my name actually…”

    Gee, what a stupid girl. He was in love with her for 2 years and she didn’t even know his name. Has she never noticed how sweet he was ? -.-

    Anyways, I love this interview. He’s so smart and sweet and I just want him to be mine. *sigh*

  13. Mina

    “as far as women go”, sounds cold. And, again you bring up Luke. So now we can talk about him as Went’s boyfriend? Allthough he’s sending fangirls mixed messages: “It’s only natural in the business of fantasy, so people have fantasies about you, and some of them are based on some kind of truth, some of them are not, but it doesn’t matter whether they have any kind of accuracy, they’re online, or in magazines, people can print anything about you, say anything about you that they want, and there’s really nothing you can do it about except, I suppose, go to court if you have enough time and money. And mostly it amuses me.” Should I think of him as a straight guy now?

  14. anon

    If Wentworth was any farther in the closet he’d be in Narnia.

  15. Bel

    Can I please meet that man one day? I swear I’m not lying when I say I have ALWAYS looked at Dracula like that. It breaks my heart every time I see that movie that Gary Oldman does not get his love… Just the idea that someone would roam the earth for centuries, trying to find again the one he lost, the suffering he must have gone through, the life blown back into his cold heart at the sight of her double… sigh.
    And Wentworth so obviously sees both sides of everything… Either he’s learned to manage it, making people of all kinds feel comfortable around him, or he elicits conflicts, annoying people with his (to them!) unstable mind. I only wish there were more people like him around me, so I wouldn’t have to explain myself all the time. (“Jesus woman! Pick a side!”)
    And he melted my heart with his comment about the ten-year olds… Who would think of that sort of thing instead of the damage those fake sites could do to his reputation? But not him, no, HE’s concerned about the kids!
    Can you tell I’ve finally fallen from lust into … respect?
    Nah. Lust it still is 😉

  16. Gbaby

    Wise he is.
    Love him unconditionally, fangs and all.

  17. Melm

    After reading this, I’d use Went’s phrasing to say that “most magazines and entertainment news shows (this interview included) sell this idea that somewhere out there is a better, more interesting, more glamorous, more beautiful (boyfriend) than yours (ie. Wentworth Miller, the one and only), which makes you dissatisfied with what you have”.
    Sad really, when we all know deep down that our ultimate fantasy is gay.
    If my boyfriend ever suspected how much time I spend dreaming of Went, he’d dump me in a second. I feel like a criminal and this interview is not helping! Hence my 2008 resolution: stop my daily checking of WFW blog.

  18. Anty

    “I meant schlepping down to the local rink and putting on those cheap skates that give your feet blisters and kind of shuffling once around the rink and falling on your ass and then calling it a day and retiring to the cafeteria for two cups of really crappy hot chocolate. That’s kind of my idea of a romantic night out!”

    I love you. I want to marry you. I want to have your babies. I don’t even care if you fuck Luke on the side (as long as I can watch).

  19. Anty

    Re: ““as far as women go”

    So, um, does that imply he left out the “as far as men go” part? Notice how he always says he’s not gay, but never says he’s straight, either? Could he possess utter flexibility? *is ded*

    And why doesn’t anybody simply call up a former member of the Tiger Tones and asks flat out if he was doing any of them? Or sits watch in front of Luke’s flat? I mean, c’mon you paparazzi, how hard can it be?

  20. Rosi

    What a great intervew!I love it.Thanx Krissie and WFW!Actually i was wondering who is the real Wentworth.. who is he out of Prison Break .In all the intervews i heard i only understood that he is 110% into Michael’s character and trying to walk in his shoes until he give the best product-Michael Scofield.Ofcourse i ve always knew that he is not an avarage person and actor.He is steped on the earth.The small things makes him happy and that is the way we all should feel,because if we have the feeling and the good emotion and if we have someone to share with ,who can return to that,nothing else matters.The most important thing for me is that he has good heart and he is a wise man…And when someone ask me why i love this man and his acting i would say because he is Person first,he has that charisma,this charm,his words are so easy to be understood,he always speaks in a calm way and always discribes his emotion.And he is smart!!!I love you Went.I wish you all the best in career and finding the real love.Ohhh and Beastie boys ROCK!!!

  21. B

    I really enjoyed this interview…nice!!!

  22. WFW

    It is very easy to see what it is people love about him in this interview. I wish more of them were like this.

    And Anty, you could be right! Are we back to bi now? Please say we’re back to bi…

  23. Mink

    And Anty, you could be right! Are we back to bi now? Please say we’re back to bi…

    LMAO! Ah, yes! The total ‘win win’ that is bi. *sigh*

    *hopes* 😉

  24. Anty

    @WFW:

    Well, IMO it’s one thing to not give definite information to protect your career, and another to come up with loads of (then) lies, like “I want a wife and kids”, “I really like women with dark hair”, “I loved the pool in Heidelberg where the girls could go topless” to do so. Because frankly, the guy strikes me as too smart to do that sort of dumb shit, because he must know when that comes out, he’ll not be the gay guy, but the gay guy who actively put lies out there, which he can’t imagine will go over too well with several parties.

    But, he never said “I’m straight” either… So he’s either gay and really wants to be straight (which would leave me pondering why, as a black/white Yale!graduate household and Princeton don’t seem like most conservative environments), or he’s flexible. And when you’re a bi male and dating a guy, to the rest of the world that makes you gay (whereas when you’re a bisexual woman and dating a girl, you’re “experimenting”).

    Anyway, he says he’s not gay and I believe him. Doesn’t mean he might not like shagging men.

    Whoever has gay friends should ask Went makes their gaydar perk up (that sounded really wrong and dirty).

  25. Juma

    NOW I really love him! He’s perfect in every way!

  26. AJ

    Well, well, well…look at Mr. Talkative. He disappears for for 4 or 5 months, and now he just won’t shut the fuck up! *sigh* Oh, how I love him…

    “and she’s one of my ideals as far as women go”

    I’m transferring to the “he’s bi” train! Hey! he’s freaky and he knows it…

  27. LAgurl

    I LOVE this interview 🙂

  28. Luci

    He really needs to retire the “I had a crush on Angie Harmon” bs and admit that his crush was actually on Sam Waterston.

  29. “And the interviews, they keep on cumin”

    I’m allergic to Cumin…

    Ohhhhhhhhhh I get it. Never mind. Carry on.

    Such a beautiful educated man.

    good looking people get away with a lot of things …especially lies

  32. niknak

    I loved this interview. It had depth and it was what we should be hearing from someone with his intelligence and gift with words.

    As for the “As far as women go” comment: When I read this I didn’t get the gay vibe. Of course, I am on the fence until Went says I should fall either way. I took it to be a description of an ideal example of a group in general.

    For example:

    – As far as actors go, Wentworth Miller is my favorite.
    – As far as men go, Went is one of the most handsome.
    – As far as blogs go, WFW.org is the best.
    – As far as comments go, this one is done.

    I rest my case!

    You are right, but what about dignity? What about self respect??

  34. Anty

    @Luci: LOL!

    I’m trying to figure out what it means that he says he had a crush on a smart woman who goes after other people’s asses. I mean, most of those non-sensitive het guys go after dumb packages like Jessica Alba, because while an über hot girl who can kick ass is bad (for their convenience and self-esteem), one who is smart on top if it is much worse.

    So either… Went is one of those shy, nice types who wants the lady to be his self-esteem, or he’s into strap-on sex… or he actually is in the closet. Damn. Why do I have the feeling we’re not making any progress here?

    *le sigh* Right now I don’t feel better about myself than the yellow papers I never want to work for but… this is fun.

  35. seza

    Right!! i’m deleting all my fake wentworths off myspace……..

  36. HIKER

    I like what ANTY said, except that I don’t believe he’s straight at all.
    A straight man insists more on the physical aspect of women (particularly when he’s very young!), intelligence can only be a bonus (if the guy is smart himself!) but beauty is paramount .

    Went said somewhere that his friends at college dated beautiful blondes and laughed at him for going out with smart plain ones.
    Straight boys don’t want to discuss Kant or Nietzsche on a date: they hope to get lucky that’s all!
    Obviously, he wasn’t interested in sex with them…

    I don’t believe he ‘s bisexual. Bisexuality is extremely rare, true bisexuality, I mean.
    Some people hesitate on their orientation when they are young, having sex with male and female partners, but later in life they end up choosing one orientation for the rest of their lives.

    Our family has learned a lot about all this since my little brother came out a few years ago, and I can easily imagine how Went’s family reacted when they found out he was gay.
    I suppose Went decided to go to L.A. for all sorts of reasons…

    Apparently, he finds it hard to come out of the closet entirely. It’s hearbreaking when you are an ordinary person (my brother thought about suicide at one time), my heart goes to Went!

    He must feel awful inside with all eyes on him.
    If we love him, we must not help those who want to destroy him because he’s gay.

    P.S.: I repeat what I said earlier: a gay man can have crushes on women. The gay community has female icons like Madonna or Mariah Carey.

    It doesn’t mean they would like to have sex with them.

  37. Katjus

    Dear Wentworth,

    I would like to volunteer for a romantic date with you. Everything about me fits your idea of a romantic date (well nearly, but hey, i can always wear a dark wig…!); i wear scarfs all the time and they can easily be made to flutter while we skate, i cant really skate so falling on my ass will be guarenteed and i can also pull you down with me should that be something you enjoy *hopeful face*and most importantly i love, love, love crappy hot chocolate. Oh and i blister easily while wearing ill fitting footwear! See? I´m puuurfect! 😉
    Get back to me on this. I think you are kinda cute… *snicker*
    Love, Katjus

    Ps. I live in Finland so in just few months you would be able to have your pick between the frozen lake and a local rink that stinks of hokey player sweat…! Tempting, huh? 😉

    Dear Went, you are not helping me with accepting the idea or you as gay with this kind of interview! Someone help me!

  39. boss

    especially when you say that the only answers you made up were about cologne or style! Help me! Help me!Anyway I vote at least for bi… that Amy Bice seems to be too wise and smart to not f**k him!

  40. Thanks for posting this, WfW.

    Niknak, I read the comment “as far as women go” in the same way.

    Good points, Anty and Hiker. However, you may want to consider these:

    Sometimes, it’s hot to be led around by someone you’re attracted to. You get the chance to relax. I’ve met several het guys who have expressed this idea. Said that it let’s them breathe, and gives them and their girls a different view of things. It’s also damn erotic.

    I’m an artist/writer. Most of my gender (female) are not that different from the men. They go for physical attractiveness first, while smarts take second place. I tend to be different (which really labelled me as “odd” in high school). I always go for character first. The physical attractiveness of a guy usually takes second or third place with me. Might not His Hotness be the same? I mean, from all his interviews, I always got the feeling that the physical attractiveness of a partner isn’t first place with him.

    Hiker, you are so right, if Went’s gay, we must not help those who want to destroy him because of his orientation.

    And, Anty, whether het, gay or bi, WM’s supposed lovers are too quiet. Which gives me three ideas: (a) the lovers are very discreet types [wow! I salute those people]; (b) WM has never consummated with anyone [Virgin Went, any takers?]; or (c) WM has been inactive for several years—I mean, the guy was poor, right? And logical, as well? If he’s het, the guy was probably worried about making a girl pregnant. He strikes me as the responsible type.

    Boss,
    Amie Bice is an old college friend.
    Nothing more.

  42. boss

    Anonymous difficult to believe considering that Amy Bice is now studing political science at Santa Monica University, anyway I was joking… but I still think think that she seems to be smart and wise ans so… *kidding* 😉

  43. Anon 9/21/7:26:
    I am sooo relieved. Please tell her I envy her for being close to WM. (Hell, I envy the Starbucks cup that know his lips! *Like a lover, the morning sun…* ) And will she kindly give WM a kiss for me? (You understand that I can’t speak for the others here? Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!)

  44. boss

    ChatJemena as I said Amie Bice is wise, so very very discreet!!! *still joking before someone call me a liar*

  45. Boss, good for her. *hiccups* (runs away “whaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy–cough, cough)

    No, Boss, Amie Bice is ONLY a friend.

    O.K., they may not be COLLEGE friends, but they know each other from some sort of course (acting?).

    I’m pretty sure she never put her hand on his crotch.

    @Hiker: “Bisexuality is extremely rare, true bisexuality, I mean.”

    Actually, according to Kinsey, true home- or heterosexuality are very rare: Only 5% of the population is either. 90% are bisexual to some degree. So, if you’re a guy and prefer fucking men 9 times out of 10… you’re still bisexual.

    @ChatJemena:

    B) Awwwwwww. How adorable.
    C) B and C can go hand-in-hand: http://freedom4um.com/cgi-bin/readart.cgi?ArtNum=59151

  48. Anty

    … and that should be homo, not home. *coughs*

  49. HIKER

    “Actually, according to Kinsey, true home- or heterosexuality are very rare: Only 5% of the population is either. 90% are bisexual to some degree. So, if you’re a guy and prefer fucking men 9 times out of 10… you’re still bisexual.”

    You’re bisexual UNTIL you’ve found your true orientation. Many people are late bloomers as far as their sexual preferences are concerned (Maybe Went was like that!).

    That’s what my mother was told by shrinks when she lamented that her baby son had seemed “so normal” before he had an affair with another man..

    It took Mum (and the rest of the family)time to understand that lots of people don’t know where they stand and have to experiment before they know what they are….
    It’s called bisexuality, but as I said, practically nobody dies bisexual…You end up making a choice.

    @Hiker:

    “You’re bisexual UNTIL you’ve found your true orientation. Many people are late bloomers as far as their sexual preferences are concerned (Maybe Went was like that!).”

    Several scientists and bisexual people (and a 42-year-old friend of mine) would jump at your throat for that. Bisexuality *IS* a true orientation.

  51. Anty:
    Thanks for that Kinsey info–at least, I shouldn’t feel a wee bit bad now about being attracted to Angelina Jolie and Nigella Lawson.

    Virginity and IQ? I guess I know where I belong now. My last meaningful relationship was in my last reincarnation. (Yipeee! I have a study to refer to now!)

    Have a good weekend, WfW and folks!

  52. Anty

    @ChatJemena:

    Personally, I don’t see why they had to do a study for that. I think it should be obvious.

    And yeah… studying… I should be working on this thing for grad school, but I constantly take breaks to go online… *coughs*

  53. HIKER

    ANTY,
    Just pop in your nearest retirement home and do a survey about sexuality and how the pensioners perceive themselves NOW, at the end of their lives.

    You’ll be surprised to see they all fall in the two categories, straight or gay…

    But some will tell you they “discovered” themselves quite late in their lives.

    It’s often the case of lesbians who lived in denial for many, many years, had a hetero marriage and raised children before realizing what their inner self was…and end up running away with another gal!

  54. Anty

    @Hiker:

    You seem to be operating under the assumption that because several gay people have had experience with the opposite sex, because they didn’t *want* to be gay, or believed they must not be, you can only be gay or straight. Scientists and sexual researchers (not shrinks) or somebody who is truly bisexual will tell you that while most people PREFER one gender, and yes, very few like both genders equally, it is possible to like both. That is a sexual orientation, and it’s called bisexuality. Bisexuality isn’t behaviorism. Just like heterosexuality or homosexuality aren’t, otherwise straight people would have to experiment to find out they’re straight.

    LUKE DUMP HIS CLOSET ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. WFW

    Take a breath anon…Now let it out. Now in…aaaaaaaaand out. It’s easy. Watch: *demonstrating*

    Now one more squee for this interview. Just lovely…

  57. Anty

    Hm… gay soft pr0n starring a tortured Wentworth. I wanna see.

    I say he’s coffeesexual.

  58. WFW

    Please do not post blind items on interview posts or have extremely lengthy conversations speculating about Went’s sexuality unless it’s based on something that Went actually said in the article. I’m not saying you can’t post BI’s but shit, Luke’s face is on the FRONT PAGE of the blog right now. If you’re going speculate, please do it on a post that is more related. Thank you!

  59. sara

    sorry, I will:-)

  60. sueli

    [small voice]So I’m the only one to read his take on Dracula and think he sounds potentially borderline psychopathic, albeit very romantic? Just me, then…?[/sv]

    He sure is cute, though.

  61. Darci

    If he is gay and wants to remain in the closet, Isay let him be. No one should be forced out of the closet and branded a liar for valuing their privacy.

  62. Anonymous

    “branded a liar for valuing their privacy”?

    Privacy, of course, is respectable! We don’t need to know how he f…ks in bed!

    But “liar” it is true because he gave wrong ,unecessary details to FOOL us!

    We don’t like to be mocked!!!

  63. WFW

    Oh anons, anons…

    I love how you’re trying to push your “He’s a liar, where’s his integrity, he’s such a shit, he’s somewhere laughing at all the fangirls” agenda here and you don’t seem to realize that it’s not going to work, lol. Wentlust is still alive and well, gay rumors and all and it will not stop, not while I’m still here to drool over the man. Nice try though!

  64. Anonymous

    sometime i wonder if Went is a liar or these ppl are liars

  65. dalagang pilipina
