Ezra Miller has finally made a public admission and apology for their string of arrests and erratic behavior that has made the Flash actor stand out since April. Diversity“Recently going through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller wrote. “I would like to apologize to everyone that I was alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the work necessary to return to a healthy, safe and productive phase in my life.”
It seems that Miller’s apology was received by Warner Bros. interested in keeping Speed The film starring Miller is alive and opens next June. The studio has a lot going for this DC blockbuster, and it’s built around an increasingly problematic star. Unlike Bat girl, was unreasonably adjusted this month as a tax break, Speed having a higher stake makes canceling it outright a less attractive option. The film, which has completed production, boasts a budget of $200 million (vs Bat girl$90 million) and, given the character’s ability to cross timelines and universes, represent an opportunity to reorient the wobbly DC expansion universe. (Plus, it has guests from two pasts Batmen: Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck.)
Last week, the Hollywood Reporter reported through a source that Warner Bros. had discussed three options for how to proceed. Option 1: Miller sought professional help, eventually returning to limited journalism, in which they, now in a healthier place, discuss and explain past behavior (how to do so). in the past!) Theirs. Option 2: Miller did not seek help, and was not made public. Option 3: Kill the movie. Looks like Option 1 won.
Rolling Stone reported in June that Miller has a woman and her three young children living on their Vermont property, which allegedly has “unattended guns strewn around the house” and a farm needed sa unlicensed is being operated. (The mother in question told the magazine that Miller helped them get out of their violent ex and called it a “safe environment,” although Vermont Children’s Services is currently looking for her and her children to issue an “urgent care order”).
In early August, Miller was arrested in Vermont and charged with burglary after allegedly drinking from a home while the owner was away. Miller was also arrested twice in Hawaii this April, for second-degree assault as well as disorderly conduct.
In a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Miller talked about the connection between celebrities and mental health problems. “If you look at the world, celebrity fetishism and celebrity fanaticism, that’s what’s ruling the world,” Miller said. “So are you a politician or you are whatever, you are just a celebrity with a fan club, just like me. You know? And maybe we are all mentally ill. I watch television or the news and I think, ‘Oh, that’s my guy. We all suffer from mental illness together. Great. In another 2018 interview with Vulture, Miller talked about struggling with mental health issues since their teenage years and how working in film contributed to that.
