Wentworth Miller felt he was ''feeding a fantasy'' before announcing he is gay.

The former 'Prison Break' star, who opened up about his sexuality for the first time last August, says he has a better relationship with his fans now.

The 42-year-old actor told Details magazine: ''I feel more fully expressed.

''After 'Prison Break,' I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of 'We don't address that thing.' ''

Asked if he felt like he was lying about his sexuality in the past, he said: ''My face was on billboards, and I thought it was my job to act a certain way. But I think audiences knew to a certain degree.

''The people onscreen aren't the characters they're playing. They're our projection of who we want them to be. I think it's possible to have a man-crush if you're not gay or to have a crush on a guy you know to be gay if you're a woman.''

He added: ''Attraction is fluid, and I think our imaginations are strong enough to hold a container for all of this complexity, even if we know on a subconscious level something's not what it appears to be.''
