Actor Ezra Miller is set to star in the upcoming Harry Potter prequel/sequel "Fantastic Beats" later this month. But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Miller, who identifies as queer, opened up about his #MeToo moment.

In the piece, Miller talks about working with director Lynne Ramsay on the 2011 drama "We Need to Talk About Kevin." He said he hopes to make more films with the filmmaker, who he calls "the greatest director alive." THR also adds Ramsay's "treatment by the film's financier and producer after her firing from 2015 Western 'Jane Got a Gun' enrages him."

"Powerful men, they don't know how bad they want to submit to a woman, a feminine power, but they should," he said. "I advise they do it immediately because they're fuckin' up the world."

That statement led to Miller's own #MeToo moment, which he never shared before. It's a brief moment in the interview and the actor does not reveal the director-producer involved.

"They gave me wine and I was underaged," he told THR. "They were like, 'Hey, want to be in our movie about gay revolution?' And I was like, 'No, you guys are monsters.'"

"It's a great fuckin' age of being like, 'You know what? That shit's unacceptable,' And it's amazing for a lot of us to watch," he continued. "'Cause, like, we all knew it was unacceptable when we fucking survived it. That's what Hollywood is. I thought we all knew we were sex workers."

Elsewhere in the interview, Miller opens up about identifying as queer.

"Which is to say, I don't identify. Like, fuck that," he said. "Queer just means no, I don't do that. I don't identify as a man. I don't identify as a woman. I barely identify as a human."

Miller recently made headlines when he confirmed that Dumbledore (played by Jude Law in the new "Fantastic Beasts" film), will be explicitly gay after the movie's director previously said he would not.
