Ezra Miller is the subject of a new vanity fair Exposé dealing with the 29-year-old actor’s “dark spiral”. in recent years. More than a dozen people were interviewed for the lengthy report, some of whom claim Miller suffers from Messiah delusions.
Miller’s erratic behavior first came to light when they were in Iceland in 2020. The Lightning star, whose pronoun is s/he, smothered two strangers in an incident that went viral after being caught on film. An insider who was with Miller around the time related it vanity fair: “[They’d] talk about the metaverse and medicine and how they are the messiah and what [their] work is here. They say their spiritual practice is to be among the people – which means party. So if you are in Iceland, [they were] non-stop out. [Their] Favorite were raves where [they’d] wrestling two or three days at a time.”
Miller was accused of cult-like behavior and grooming of young women. Activist Tokata Iron Eyes is among those who have been with Miller in recent months. tokatas Parents went public and accused the actor of brainwashing and assaulting her daughter. (Tokata has denied this in interviews.) Tokata’s mother, Jumping Eagle, said she heard about Miller’s alleged messiah complex.
“They say they’re some kind of messiah and they’re going to lead an indigenous revolution,” Jumping Eagle said vanity fair. Miller is not Native American, but frequently has been pronounced against people appropriating the culture.
“[Miller] is committed to it [they walk] through this world with an indigenous humility and spiritual awareness,” claimed an “indigenous insider.” [they don’t] at all. There [they don’t] Care.”
Multiple sources claimed to the magazine that Miller was verbally and emotionally abusive while referring to themselves as both Jesus and the devil. According to an insider, the actor referred to the superhero they play, “claiming that Flash is the one who is bringing the multiverses together, just like Jesus.”
Another odd anecdote buried in the investigative report concerns Susan Sarandon. In describing Miller’s Vermont Farm, where weeds, guns and lightning bolts are said to be widespread, there’s an altar they like to use.
“Often [Miller] makes the women put their phones on the altar as they come in and other offerings,” a longtime friend told the magazine [their] Altar for not inviting Ezra to a dinner party.”
A Miller representative countered vanity fair that Sarandon and the actor “are good friends” and that Miller “would probably call it that [anecdote] total crap if you ask.” (A Sarandon representative did not respond to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.)
Miller’s former fiancee, Erin, took part in the story and said that Miller “was not violent or physically abusive towards anyone” while they were together. The couple dated in 2016.
“For years [they] convinced me and all of our friends that I was abusive… But in hindsight I would shout [their] disrespect [they] would take no responsibility and simply call myself offensive for my reaction. I could have handled it better. I didn’t know the term gas light at the time. I was emotionally drained for years,” shared Erin. She added that Miller broke up with her after a spiritual advisor told them she was a parasite.
“I can apologize [them] all day, but I don’t want to anymore,” she added. “The illusions of greatness must be invoked. I will always love Ezra, and I don’t want to [them] continue down this dark path.”
“They take their therapy and treatment very seriously,” Miller’s rep said.
The move was a last-ditch effort to salvage next year’s blockbuster film The Lightning, which will be Miller’s biggest film to date. Warner Bros. is moving on with the tent pole despite mounting negative press about its star.
“The notion that The Flash was in danger was a wake-up call,” added Miller’s rep.
