‘The Flash’ star Ezra Miller seeking treatment for mental health
Ezra Miller, the troubled star of Warner Bros’ major upcoming superhero movie “The Flash,” is seeking treatment for mental health issues after a string of high-profile controversies, the actor said, Qazet.az reports.
The 29-year-old, who has already appeared as the key DC Comics character in several blockbuster films including “Justice League,” was charged this month with felony burglary in Vermont, and earlier this year was charged with disorderly conduct following two arrests in Hawaii.
Those incidents and further allegations of choking a woman in an Icelandic bar, which did not result in charges have raised questions in Hollywood over the future of “The Flash” and Miller’s career more broadly.
“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller, who identifies as non-binary, said in a statement sent to AFP by their representative on Tuesday.
“I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior.
“I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
