Miles Teller seems like a goofball. Strike that. Miles Teller is a goofball.
The fresh-faced actor may be new to many viewers but expect to see him popping up more and more often. The 26-year-old stars alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan in That Awkward Moment (and, may we add, totally steals the show in their recent TODAY show interview). He’s also the lead in The Spectacular Now alongside Shailene Woodley.
The 2013 romance isn’t the only new film Miles and Shailene star in together, either. Look for both in forthcoming young adult book series turned movie franchise Insurgent. Their Insurgent characters are more likely to throw punches than lock lips, however. Shailene stars as lead character Beatrice “Tris” Prior while Miles plays her main enemy, Peter.
So is the switch between love and hate hard for the two young actors? Yeah, nope. Miles tells Vulture at this point he and his 22-year-old co-star “have a shorthand.”
“[Our] relationship is very playful,” he adds, calling Shailene “a good friend of mine” before giving her a good-natured ribbing for “always freaking giving away all of her belongings and like, living in a tree.”
Vulture asks for clarification: “Has she lived in a tree?”
Miles: “I think Shailene lives in a tree.”
“Yes. I’m pretty sure she’s in a tree right now.”
And we’re pretty sure Miles Teller is, as we said, a goofball.
