Ezra Miller, star of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, has said that he doesn’t see himself as a man or a woman.

The American actor, who came out as queer in 2012, told The Hollywood Reporter: “I don’t identify. Like, f**k 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,” explained the actor, who reprises his role as Credence Barebone in the second Fantastic Beasts film.

Miller, who made his name in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, also opened up about his own #MeToo moment, which came at the hands of a director and producer he declined to name.

“They gave me wine and I was underage,” said Miller. “They were like: ‘Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?’ And I was like: ‘No, you guys are monsters.'”

The 26-year-old actor added that one shining light of the current period is the ability to call out “unacceptable” actions like these.

“We f***ing survived it. That’s what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers,” he said.

What kind of partner is Ezra Miller looking for?

Ezra Miller recently told GQ that he wants a man who will die for him.

Speaking on his 95-acre farm in Vermont, Miller explained that his roosters “will die for any of the chickens,” distracting eagles who are targeting the young birds by pretending to be injured and easier pickings for the predators.

“That’s masculinity,” he said. “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?”

He added: “I’m looking for a man like that. I’m looking for a rooster-type man.”

The actor turned heads earlier this year when he showed up to Comic-Con as sexy Toadette.

Miller rocked up to Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts panel event in a skimpy pink outfit, complete with a giant mushroom head.

When it comes to Albus Dumbledore’s sexual preferences in the Fantastic Beasts sequel, Miller promised last month that Albus Dumbledore’s sexuality would be “extremely explicit.”

He said: “I find Dumbledore’s queerness extremely explicit in this film. I mean, all around.

“He sees Grindelwald, his young lover who’s the love of his life; he sees him in the Mirror of Erised. What does the Mirror of Erised show you? Nothing more than the most desperate desire of your heart.”
