We Need to Talk About Kevin star Ezra Miller has "come out" as a gay man.

The actor, who plays a gay high school student in Emma Watson's upcoming film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, has come clean about his attraction towards men in a bid to show fans it is not something to be ashamed of.

He tells Out magazine, "I'm queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I've been trying to figure out relationships, you know?"

But he insists he's some way off looking for a life partner and settling down: "I don't know if it's responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don't think we're ready for them.

"I do feel that it's possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible - which is fine. I'm super down with being irresponsible. I'm just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people."
