Our week has been made thanks to the Ezra Miller photo shoot found in the new issue of Playboy magazine. Not only are these images by Ryan Pfluger sexy, subversive and super queer, but they play with gender like few other mainstream actors have ever attempted.
While the interview accompanying the Ezra Miller photo shoot — timed with his appearance in the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel — touches on topics like Hollywood’s #TimesUp movement, the current state of American politics (“If you like history, you’re bugging out because you know which way this goes,” he says) and working with Johnny Depp, who stands accused of abusing his ex-wife Amber Heard, we’re most shook by Miller’s comments on his sexuality as a young kid and his penchant for polyamory.
When it comes to his sexuality and his shrugging off of monogamy, nothing is seemingly off limits, which pairs perfectly with this Ezra Miller photo shoot we’re head over heels for.
In various photos we see Miller sporting bunny ears, fishnets, heels and lipstick.
“I’m trying to find queer beings who understand me as a queer being off the bat, who I make almost a familial connection with, and I feel like I’m married to them 25 lifetimes ago from the moment we meet,” Miller says, speaking about his “polycule,” a portmanteau for his “polyamorous molecule” of sex and companion partners. “And then they are in the squad — the polycule. And I know they’re going to love everyone else in the polycule because we’re in the polycule, and we love each other so much.”
About his personal sex life, Miller says, “I have more of an ecstatic practice, but I do take to instatic practices at times [tantric terms he’s absorbed from reading The Kama Sutra at a young age], so sometimes, I don’t have sex for a really long time because a lack of sex is as important to me as sex.” And playing Credence Barebone in the Fantastic Beasts films affects his sex life, too, he says: “There’s definitely a lot of sexless, lonely time when playing Credence. Absolutely—alone, alone, alone, alone, alone.”
