Ezra Miller has described what he thinks masculinity is with a chicken analogy.

The Fantastic Beasts and Justice League star came out as queer in 2012 and during an interview with GQ Style, the actor described the type of man he is looking for by using an analogy based on chickens on his farm.

He said: “The rooster will die for any of his chickens. We have a lot of eagles out here, and if an eagle starts dive-bombing the crew, the rooster will go out separate from the herd and pretend to be injured, so that the eagle will come and kill the rooster instead of hurting any of his babies.

“That’s masculinity. That’s what it’s supposed to look like, you know what I mean? I’m going to pretend to be weak, I’m going to pretend to be vulnerable so that you attack me before you’d attack one of the women in my posse. You feel me?

“I’m looking for a man like that. I don’t know about you. I’m looking for a rooster-type man.”

The actor also said that men who have been accused of sexual misconduct during the #MeToo movement should be rehabilitated when they are at rock bottom.

He continued: “Let’s rehabilitate men. Let’s drop men like flies.

“I’m with it. And let’s rehabilitate them when they’re on the ground. This is some Wonder Woman shit right here. What’s the Amazonian solution to this?”
