Miles Teller Controversy: The Actor Finally Admits to Being Immunised!
US-born actor Miles Alexander Teller was born on February 20, 1987. Acting appearances as jazz musician Andrew Neiman in Whiplash and fighter pilot Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw in Top Gun: Maverick brought him widespread fame.
Teller made his cinematic debut in 2010 and quickly rose to prominence, particularly for his leading roles in the coming-of-age film The Spectacular Now (2013) alongside Shailene Woodley and the Divergent film trilogy (2014-2016) opposite a young Jennifer Lawrence.
In 2014, he broke through with his performance in the Oscar-winning drama Whiplash. He went on to feature in a number of successful films after Whiplash, including several comedies, the superhero movie Fantastic Four (2015), and the biopics War Dogs and Bleed for This, both released in 2016.
At this precise juncture in history, actor Miles Teller is stirring up controversy in both the entertainment industry and the realm of public health.
Why is Teller, who has appeared in films like Whiplash and Divergent and whose latest music video for Taylor Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me” was directed by Blake Lively, so popular? For what reason is he being discussed in real life and on Twitter? Here are some of the more important ones, listed in approximate chronological sequence.
Teller’s Positive September Covid-19 Test Effectively Shut Down Production
On the Hollywood set of The Offer, the upcoming Paramount+ series about the making of The Godfather. A Daily Mail article (which should be taken with a grain of salt) claimed that Teller had not been vaccinated and had declined a COVID test.
Teller’s reputation had already been harmed by a 2015 Esquire story in which he cited his penis in dialogue with a restaurant waitress, so the rumor did not bode well for him (see headlines like “Report: Miles Teller’s Allegedly Unvaccinated Ass Causes Headaches on Godfather Series Set”). Teller’s representative informed the Daily Mail that the paper’s “facts are inaccurate,” but the publicist wouldn’t elaborate.

Even though most people have moved on, the Teller anti-vax story received a boost when it was discovered that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had not been vaccinated, in violation of NFL guidelines.
Internet detectives looked back at a May trip to Hawaii that actor Aaron Rodgers and his fiancée Shailene Woodley took with actor Miles Teller and his wife (Woodley and Teller costarred in the film Divergent).
The video of “I Bet You Think About Me
in which Teller stars, was released this week. Bravo, Swift, and Lively; the 34-year-old actor is probably perfectly positioned as the affluent ex who wears organic shoes and has a million-dollar couch.
Fans of Swift were suspicious of Teller’s inclusion because of his history of scandal. Did Taylor Swift “Not Hear About Miles Teller’s Anti-Vax Controversy,” as The Daily Beast put it?
Teller may not have been compelled to correct the record after a damaging article appeared in the Daily Mail, but the anger of Swift Nation obviously prompted him to do it.
He tweeted on Tuesday morning, “Hey everyone, I don’t typically feel the need to address rumors on here but I am vaccinated and have been for a long.” The only thing I’m against is hatred.
He played the lead role in 2022’s Top Gun: Maverick. At first, he was apprehensive to take the part, fearing the success and attention that would come with co-starring in a huge picture with Tom Cruise.
Cruise persuaded him that he would be great in the role, so he took the initiative to accept the offer. Miles Teller revealed in May of 2022 that he has been trying to sell the studio on a sequel movie revolving around his role. The actor called his presentation Top Gun: Rooster.
In July of that year, he announced that he and Tom Cruise have been talking about doing a sequel. Teller remarked, “I’ve never truly encountered something like this in my life,” referring to the attention and love he has received.
Saturday Night Live’s 48th season premiere will include Teller in his hosting debut.
