“The way I would choose to identify myself wouldn’t be gay. I’ve been attracted mostly to ‘shes’ but I’ve been with many people and I’m open to love wherever it can be found. I think a lot of people are projecting their own troubles and fears concerning sexuality onto those around them, and it does result in the perpetuation of a lot of hateful notions. As long as I can remember, I’ve felt really horrified watching those dynamics play out. It really hurts and divides us all, and in the end, so much of the human experience is shared, so we only end up hating and fearing our own damn selves.”

– Every time I read an interview with “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” star Ezra Miller, I think to myself, Thank God I didn’t meet you when I was 16 because I would be So. Far. Gone. [The Daily Beast]

Ezra Miller Says He’s “Queer”

“I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that’s what you’re supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love — even if it is love — we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it’s possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I’m super down with being irresponsible. I’m just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That’s where I’m at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.”

One thing I love about actor Ezra Miller — who blew my mind in “We Need To Talk About Kevin” — is that he’s such a lucid stoner. And at such a young age! This statement — given to Out magazine – is really quite smart and thoughtful, and it’s awesome to see a 19-year-old dude be so mindful of the way his innate youthful selfishness affects others. If only the 30-something dudes I find myself dating would do the same! Miller doesn’t get any deeper into explaining his “queerness,” but it seems like he’s disinterested in defining his sexuality on narrow terms. Good for him! [Out]

Oh, no, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” trailer is actually making me miss high school. (Horrible feeling. Don’t go there! Stop that!) Logan Lerman is cheek-pinchingly adorable as Charlie, the wallflower in question; Emma Watson and Amelia’s barely-legal boyfriend Ezra Miller are his misfit pals, Sam and Patrick. Paul Rudd co-stars as an English teacher who is hotter than should be allowed. The movie’s out September 14th, which gives you plenty of time to read the amazing book on which it is based, written by Stephen Chbosky. If you can handle the teen angst, that is. [MTV]

I’m definitely one of those people who enjoys the vast majority of movies I see in some way. But I’m rarely blown away by a film to the point where I’ll want to see it twice in a short period of time. One such film that did have that spirit-moving effect on me was “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” based on the book of the same name by Lionel Shriver. The film is told from the perspective of a mother (played by Tilda Swinton) who is looking back on her experience raising a boy named Kevin, who eventually massacres teachers and classmates in a school shooting. Swinton’s character Eva is shown both in the present as she faces what’s left of her life following Kevin’s crime, and in flashbacks to his upbringing. The film is deeply moving and frightening, a truly successful adaptation of a great, complicated book. Swinton, as you can always expect from the great actress, is fantastic, but I was equally as impressed by Ezra Miller, who portrayed Kevin as the teenager who eventually commits these atrocious acts. 

I was lucky enough to interview Miller, 19, about “We Need To Talk About Kevin” (which is in theaters nationwide now), the ways in which he actually related to the character, how society views motherhood, and acting in general. I was very impressed by his intelligence and found that his thoughts heightened by impressions of the film to the degree that I actually want to see it a third time. Check out our Q&A after the jump!

10 Things To Know About Ezra Miller, Star Of “We Need To Talk About Kevin”

"We Need To Talk About Kevin" is in theaters this weekend. Watch »

Last night, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a screener of “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” the film that was the talk of Cannes, based on the book by Lionel Shriver. The book/movie is told from the perspective of a mother — played by Tilda Swinton — as she struggles to rebuild her life shortly after her teenage son, Kevin, kills a bunch of his fellows students and teachers in an orchestrated massacre. Kevin has always been a bad seed, exhibiting sociopathic behavior since he was in diapers and the film (and, I imagine, the book) puts a certain damper on any baby fever you might have. It’s the ultimate psychological horror story — are some people just born evil? 

Ezra Miller spent over two years trying to land the role before finally getting the green light — and damn, did he blow me away. The thing about many sociopaths is their ability to switch seamlessly between being charming and cruel, and Miller pulls this off brilliantly. He exudes an emotional intelligence beyond his age, a quality that is essential for such a complex and disturbing character. I — and, oh, everyone else — am convinced he is the next big thing. Click onward to check out a bunch of photos and facts about this hot young talent.

No one in my book club is having children after last month’s selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It’s a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it’s not like “Rosemary’s Baby” with a literally evil child: her son Kevin is psychopathic and Eva realizes it, but her husband is completely oblivious. So Kevin grows up, tormenting and terrorizing the people around him, until one day as a teenager he commits a heinous crime that will leave your blood cold. It’s an amazing book that I highly recommend reading. So I can’t wait for the film version in theaters early next year, starring Tilda Swinton as the mom, John C. Reilly as the dad, and Ezra Miller as Kevin. The trailer is absolutely chilling, so I can only imagine how disturbing the actual movie will be. [YouTube]
