Miles Mcmillan Interview
Interviewer: Tell us a bit about your childhood.
Miles Mcmillan: I was born in La Jolla, California. [I have a] good family with a sister who’s nine years older than me. My dad is a developer and my mom is a psychologist. I was always artsy — always drawing, always painting. I was pretty quiet. Actually, I’m still kind of quiet. I preferred to play by myself than with anyone else. But I played with other people, too … when I had to [Laughs]. My parents were like, “Why don’t you have friends over?”
Interviewer: How were you discovered?
Miles Mcmillan: Four years ago, I came to New York to study studio art at NYU. Around two years ago, someone wanted to shoot me on the street for Urban Outfitters, so I did that. But I wasn’t really interested in modeling because school was always my priority. I got into modeling more during my senior year, so I signed with an agency.
Interviewer: What prompted you to start modeling?
Miles Mcmillan: Towards the end of my college career, everyone started to think of what they wanted to do, and I thought this could lead to other things – and help with my art. Now that I’ve graduated, I’ve been traveling ever since.
Interviewer: What’s your medium of choice?
Miles Mcmillan: Painting, mostly. But I like to draw and watercolor, too. I was painting women for a long time, usually fashion-based.
Interviewer: Favorite painters?
Miles Mcmillan: Richard Prince, Richard Phillips, and Mel Ramos. Also, Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon.
Interviewer: Right, the staples. When do you have the time to paint?
Miles Mcmillan: Well, I mostly do oils, so it’s kind of hard to do those because it’s a time commitment. Lately, I do mostly sketching and drawing as much as I can. I try to do smaller works that don’t take too much time.
Interviewer: Fair enough. Your booker told us you were the most booked male model from their board this past runway season. What was the craziest thing you saw backstage?
Miles Mcmillan: The Dior show was pretty crazy. The day before we had, like, a four-hour rehearsal, and the next day we had to be there five hours [before the show]. The Versace for H&M show was pretty crazy, too. Donatella with all her bodyguards, Prince with all his bodyguards, and Nicki Minaj. There were a lot of bodyguards. They were like, “Excuse me!” I was like, “I’m sorry, I’m getting in your way.”
Interviewer: You recently shot with Jack Pierson for AnOther Man magazine.
Miles Mcmillan: Yeah. He was actually a teacher of mine at NYU. My professor, Maureen Gallace, was friends with Jack so she got him to teach a class. He was amazing. And then I graduated and I heard I was going to maybe shoot with him.
Interviewer: Tell us about the shoot.
Miles Mcmillan: It was shot in his apartment in the West Village, which was pretty amazing. A crazy apartment with a Picasso sketch on the wall [Laughs]. It was good. We’d known each other, so it was much more comfortable. He’s quiet, but eccentric and really funny.
Interviewer: What was the last thing you read?
Miles Mcmillan: I just picked up The Rum Diary. I started reading it on the plane the other day. I fell asleep.
Interviewer: Do you watch what you eat?
Miles Mcmillan: Sometimes. I don’t really watch it that much. I think I’d like to watch it more than I do. I always order Thai. I eat a lot of sushi — Japanese is my favorite. That seems kind of okay to eat. It’s fish, it’s all protein. But I don’t really worry about it too much. I don’t drink soda anymore.
Interviewer: What about your fitness? Do you work out?
Miles Mcmillan: My gym actually just e-mailed me the other day saying I haven’t been there in a while. I should go soon. I try to go at least two times a week, if not more.
Interviewer: What’s something you dislike about yourself?
Miles Mcmillan: Sometimes, I’m too shy, but I try not to [be]. I’ve come out of my shell a lot.
Interviewer: What scares you?
Miles Mcmillan: I hate spiders. I have severe arachnophobia. Have you seen that movie?
Interviewer: No, I must have missed that one. If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would you like to meet?
Miles Mcmillan: I’ve met a lot of people who I’ve wanted to meet. Mickey Rourke was the first celebrity I met in New York. It was pretty amazing.
Interviewer: What are some of the key differences between male and female modeling, from your perspective?
Miles Mcmillan: It’s much more serious for the girls, I think, because they make so much more money. And it actually can be a real life career for them. Whereas for male models, I think we look at it as a way to get into something else that we want to do. Also, I think we’re more friendly and carefree. We don’t really care what we eat, or what we’re seen wearing. It’s less serious, I think. We can have more fun with it.
Interviewer: You’re about to be stranded on an island, and you can bring one person and one thing.
Miles Mcmillan: I would bring a TV, and someone who I would want to watch TV with.
Interviewer: Guilty pleasure?
Miles Mcmillan: Le Pain Quotidien. There’s this praline spread that’s so good. That, and watching TV. It’s a big problem.
Interviewer: So what are you watching on TV?
Miles Mcmillan: I like reality TV. I watch The Real Housewives, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, South Park, and Family Guy. Not too deep. And then Curb Your Enthusiasm is also my favorite.

Zachary Quinto and Miles McMillan Break Up After Almost 6 Years Together
Zachary Quinto and Miles McMillan are no more.
A source confirmed to E! News on Tuesday that the couple split up after nearly six years together.
Neither Quinto nor McMillan has posted photos on social media of their significant other in some time. Most of McMillan’s most recent photos involve snuggling with his dogs or traveling to far-flung places.
The last time the 29-year-old model uploaded a picture with his beau occurred in June at the 2018 Tony Awards. He captioned a snapshot of them on the red carpet, “Last night at the Tonys with my one and only!” On Quinto’s birthday in June, McMillan paid tribute by calling him “my favorite” and adding, “I love you forever and ever!!”
They celebrated their five-year anniversary in June.
The Star Trek star traveled to Los Angeles over the weekend for the 2019 Oscars and stayed with Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita. The two of them, not McMillan, were his “Oscar squad.” Quinto attended Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party , whereas McMillan stopped by Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.
The couple had “talked about” tying the knot, especially after the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage constitutional in 2015.
“We love each other and we talk about it, but we have no immediate plans,” Quinto told us.
Quinto came out as gay in 2011 during an interview with New Yorkmagazine. “[A]s a gay man, it made me feel like I—there’s still so much work to be done,” he told the magazine while discussing the Broadway play Angels in America. “There’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed. The undercurrent of that fear and that, you know, insidiousness still is swarming. It’s still all around us.”
A week afterwards, he called it “an incredibly overwhelming experience” but in a good way.
He told E! News in September at the Real Margin premiere, “I’m just grateful to be able to participate in conversations more authentically now and to be able to stand up on behalf of people that aren’t quite ready to stand up on their own and give them whatever shred of light or hope in a real sea of darkness.”
