The actor had recently posted on Instagram about the early struggles of his Hollywood life since coming out as a homosexual.

“It seemed to roar from thirty years of frustration, confusion, denial, love, yearning… yearning for what? An anchor, a harbor, a sense of safety, a sense of identity. Yes, I can relate. This is the terrain I know well. I felt Batman rising from deep within.” wrote the actor on his Instagram story.
