Ezra Miller Photoshoot with GQ Style

-The interview takes place on Ezra Miller's farm in Vermont. He has four goats. They're all pregnant.

-Doesn't want to be called a hippie: "Hippies were white people who, you know, came from privilege at a time of a lot of important movements and took a lot of drugs and made a lot of noise, which drowned out the very valid sound that was being made by a lot of really important movements at that time. And then they all sold out and became...our parents."

-Likes meeting fans: "It's almost awkward, the position that I'm in, of being on the other side of some imaginary line.That's the line to dissolve, right? It's an illusion that anyone is more involved in a world of fantasy than anyone else for worldly material reasons, like"—he rolled his eyes—"being employed to work on the project. To take credit, to say, 'Oh, it's mine?' Are you going to take credit for the sunset? Art makes art. We are but puppets for the great art puppeteer."

-On masculinity: "That's masculinity. That's what it's supposed to look like, you know what I mean? I'm going to pretend to be weak, I'm going to pretend to be vulnerable so that you attack me before you'd attack one of the women in my posse. You feel me? I'm looking for a man like that. I don't know about you. I'm looking for a rooster-type man" [go to the source for the full story on this eagle-rooster analogy]

-On his gender fluditiy: "I was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed by how much room there was [in the GQ photoshoot] for my very strange and fluid expressions [...] I'm comfortable with all the pronouns. I let he/his/him ride, and that's fine."
