“Confidence is at the root of so many attractive qualities - a sense of humor, a sense of style, a willingness to be who you are no matter what anyone else might think or say.”
“A great book provides escapism for me. The artistry and the creativity in a story are better than any drugs.”
Wentworth Miller: Nobody`s ever asked me to pay for a meal before I`ve eaten it, I`ve never been pulled over just because I was driving the wrong kind of car in the wrong kind of area at the wrong time of night.
  • Wentworth (blonde or brunette?): Um, I am into brunettes. For a long time, I’ve had a crush on Angie Harmon, who used to be on Law & Order. She’s a beautiful barracuda. [Laughs]
  • Wentworth: Fortunately, face-to-face interactions have been very positive. By and large I hear, ‘I never miss an episode’, which is the highest compliment. I did go online to read some chat room comments about the show, which I wouldn’t recommend. It’s like reading someone’s diary.
  • Wentworth (how they put the tattoo on for Prison Break): It`s a very lengthy process. It`s the most ambitious pro tattoo ever attempted for TV or film. It takes two people four or five hours to apply. They strip moisture off the skin by applying alcohol so it adheres properly. Then a layer of glue is applied before they fix the decals with waterproof sealant on top so it stays. It`s made up of a series of details that fit together like pieces of a puzzle. There are about 24 pieces to cover my entire upper body and arms. Fortunately, we only have to do it once per episode. If you don`t tamper with it, it will deteriorate slightly but will last for up to two weeks. It`s a bit like wearing fly-paper and it stains so you have to scrub it off at the end of the day with solvents
  • Wentworth (reading a comment from a chat room): Someone posted a comment that read something like, “I just found out Wentworth is British. I guess that explains the crap American accent”. [Laughs] That`s both untrue and unflattering. Both of my parents are American but they lived in England for a couple of years and I was born there, so I have dual citizenship. I was raised in Brooklyn, New York, but I have a special place in my heart for the UK.
  • Wentworth (his acting role models): I did get to work with Anthony Hopkins on The Human Stain. If I ever manage to accomplish a quarter of what he`s achieved, I`ll have had one hell of a career
