'Fantastic Beasts' actor Ezra Miller praised for gender-fluid Playboy cover
Ezra Miller is social media cat-nip right now, thanks to the weird and wonderful ensembles he’s been working at ‘Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald’ premieres.
And now the 26-year-old star has taken the gender-fluid conversation one step further, with a Playboy cover fans are dubbing “iconic”.
On the magazine’s pages, the US actor is decked out in bunny ears, lingerie, make-up and heels – a rare, and arguably progressive, move by the publication.

Not one to shy from discussing his sexuality, Ezra took the opportunity to speak candidly about his love life in the interview revealing that monogamy isn’t for him.
Instead, he has had several romantic relationships as part of a polycule – a term coined from ‘polyamorous molecule’.
"I’m trying to find queer beings who understand me as a queer being off the bat, and I feel like I’m married to them 25 lifetimes ago.” ‘Fantastic Beasts’ star Ezra Miller dons Bunny ears and sits down with Playboy to talk polyamory, pain, pleasure, and much more.

“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,” the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ actor revealed.
“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.”
Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to praise Miller for the honest interview with many thanking the star for being a relatable muse.
One social media user tweeted, “Ezra Miller’s Playboy interview is the best thing ever happened to us. Praise the almighty Ezra, I swear to God he’s the only relevant famous person RN.”

Though it’s not the first time Miller has opened up about his sexuality.
The actor – who identifies as queer – recently opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about gender: “I don’t identify as a man. I don’t identify as a woman. I barely identify as a human.”
