When a lengthy profile of Fantastic Four star Miles Teller appeared on Esquire’s website yesterday, the world assumed that it had the answer to “What kind of person is this young new actor?” He’s the kind of guy to get a beer tattoo and talk to waitresses about his cock. But several hours later, Teller himself weighed in, saying that the profile “couldn’t be more wrong.”
If you recall, the thrust of Teller’s Esquire cover was that everything Teller did — whether talking about how good-looking he is or how he wants to contribute to the film canon — came from a place of dickishness. But in a tweet response to the magazine, Teller claims that he was completely misrepresented.
@esquire couldn’t be more wrong. I don’t think there’s anything cool or entertaining about being a dick or an asshole. Very misrepresenting— Miles Teller (@Miles_Teller) August 5, 2015
In an attempt to really hammer home the point, the remaining Fantastic Four three came to his defense as well, all making very compelling cases that Miles Teller is not a dick:
