As The Flash star Ezra Miller continues to make headlines for their bizarre and concerning antics, the most recent report is truly baffling. According to a Vanity Fair report, the actor, who uses they/them pronouns, recently “freaked out” after they weren’t invited to a dinner party at Susan Sarandon’s house and demanded that she come to their home and “pay tribute” at an altar to them.
This altar, according to folks who have visited Miller’s home in Vermont, is apparently filled with “bullets, weed, sage, and Flash figurines.”
“A lot of times he makes the women put their cell phones on the altar when they come in, and other offerings,” one “longtime friend” to Miller told Vanity Fair. “Ezra freaked out recently…demanding that Susan Sarandon come pay tribute to his altar because she didn’t invite Ezra to a dinner party.”
The source also told the outlet that Miller doesn’t demand that people use they/them pronouns for them in private, though it is impossible to check the validity of that statement.
Additionally, a representative for Miller told the outlet that the two actors were “dear friends” and that Miller would likely “call this [story] total bullshit if asked.”
Miller has been showing troubling behavior over the last three years, to the point that their contract for The Flash could be in jeopardy.
In April 2020, a video surfaced of the actor seeming to choke a woman in Iceland, which their representative claimed was a “spontaneous reaction” to being provoked and that they weren’t choking the woman, but rather “went at her collarbone.” Which doesn’t sound any better, to be honest.
More recently, in March and April of this year, the actor got into legal trouble in Hawai’i, and then in August in Vermont, they were arrested on felony burglary charges after allegedly taking “several bottles of alcohol” from a nearby home, owned by a person the actor claimed was a close childhood friend. According to the actor’s rep, they were “cooking with their mother, needed rice wine, and grabbed that and another bottle of wine from the home of a close childhood friend” Vanity Fair reported that the representative went on to say, “Miller did not realize that the friend didn’t want to be friends anymore.”
“I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior,” Miller said in a statement, per Variety. “I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage in my life.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. film chairs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy sat down with Miller and their agent in August to discuss how Miller could “stay on course for ‘The Flash’s’ June 23, 2023, release date” and “reaffirm their commitment to the movie as well as apologize for bringing negative attention to the production and the company.”
