It’s the subject of a new Ezra Miller Vanity Fair exposé, which looks at the 29-year-old actor’s “dark spiral” over the past few years. More than a dozen people were interviewed for the lengthy report, some of whom claim that Miller suffers from delusions of the Messiah.
Miller’s erratic behavior first entered the public eye while in Iceland in 2020. The Flash a star, who are the pronouns, choked two strangers and one incident went viral after it was caught on film. An insider who was with Miller around this time said Vanity Fair:”[They’d] talk about the metaverse and the cure and how they are the messiah and what [their] there is work here. They say that their spiritual practice is to be among the people – which means a party. So when in Iceland, [they were] out without stopping. [Their] favorite was raves, place [they’d] to meander for two or three days at a time.”
Miller has been accused of cult-like behavior and grooming of young women. Activist Tokata Iron Eyes is among those who have been traveling around with Miller in recent months. Tokata’s parents went public and accused the actress of brainwashing and assaulting their daughter. (Tokata denied this in interviews.) Tokata’s mother, Jumping Eagle, said she had heard about Miller’s supposed messiah complex.
“They say they are some kind of messiah, and that they will lead a native revolution,” Jumping Eagle said Vanity Fair. Miller is not Native American, but has often spoken out against people appropriating the culture.
“[Miller] that professor [they walk] through this world with Native humility and spiritual awareness, “a “Native Insider” is alleged. “But, point of fact, [they don’t] at all. As [they don’t] care.”
Multiple sources claimed to the magazine that Miller was verbally and emotionally abusive, referring to himself as both Jesus and the devil. According to one insider, the actor sued the superhero they play “claiming that the Flash is the one who brings the multiverse together just like Jesus.”
Another story is about Susan Sarandon that is included in the investigative report. When describing Miller’s Vermont farm, where weed, guns and Flash figurines are said to be rampant, there is an altar they like to use.
“Many times [Miller] he makes the women put their cell phones on the altar when they come in, and other offerings,” a longtime friend tells the magazine. “Ezra recently posted … demanding that Susan Sarandon come to honor [their] altar because she didn’t invite Ezra to a dinner party.”
Miller’s representative objected Vanity Fair that Sarandon and the actor are “dear friends” and that Miller would probably “give this [anecdote] Total bullshit if that was asked.” (A rep for Sarandon did not respond to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.)
Miller’s former witness, Erin, weighed in on the story and said that Miller was “not violent or physically abusive towards anyone” when they were together. The couple got married in 2016.
“For years [they] he convinced me and all our friends that I was abusive…. But looking back, I would have called it off [their] disrespect and [they] I would not take responsibility and would only be called insulting because of my reaction. I could have handled it better. I did not know the term gaslight then. I was f***ed up emotionally for years,” Erin shared. She also said that Miller broke up with her after a spiritual advisor told them she was a paratrooper.
“I can make excuses [them] all day, but I don’t want any more,” she said. “Illusions of greatness must be put away. I will always love Ezra, and I don’t want to [them] continue down this dark road.”
Last month, after Miller’s latest arrest, the actor announced that they began “ongoing treatment” for “complex mental health issues.” According to the magazine, the treatment is just therapy.
“They are taking their therapy and treatment very seriously,” said Miller’s representative.
The move was a last-ditch effort to save next year’s blockbuster film The Flash, which will be Miller’s biggest film yet. Warner Bros. moving forward with the tentpole despite the mounting negative press about his star.
“The notion that The Flash was in danger was a wake-up call,” said Miller’s rep.
