Wentworth Miller Reveals Autism Diagnosis



"This isn't something I'd change. No. I get-got-immediately being autistic is central to who I am. To everything I've achieved/articulated." 

Wentworth Miller, 49, revealed on Instagram that he was diagnosed with autism as an adult last year.
Miller noted that access to a diagnosis is a privilege many do not enjoy.
He admitted that his diagnosis was "a shock," but "not a surprise".
He is sharing his own experience, but he doesn't want to speak for the community as a whole.
Miller pointed to the "numerous individuals sharing thoughtful + inspiring content on Instagram [and] TikTok" whom he praised for "unpacking terminology," "adding nuance," and "fighting stigma."
