Wentworth Miller was not amused when publication The LAD Bible shared an old meme on their Facebook page, poking fun at his 2010 weight gain — and now the Prison Break star is revealing what was really going on during that point in his life.
"In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons," he wrote on Facebook. "First and foremost, I was suicidal. This is a subject I've since written about, spoken about, shared about. But at the time I suffered in silence. As so many do. The extent of my struggle known to very, very few."

Wentworth, 43, went on to explain his longtime battle with depression, and how he turned to food as a vice during the lowest point in his life. At the time he quickly learned he was being criticized for his changing appearance, which he said was "the last thing he needed."
"Now, when I see that image of me in my red t-shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within. Some without," he continued.

"The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this/my image is strength. Healing. Forgiveness. Of myself and others."
The LAD Bible has since deleted the meme from their page and apologized to Wentworth.
