Miles Teller Opens Up About 'Divergent' Comments

Miles Teller is opening up about the negative comments that he made recently on the Divergent film series.

Here is what 27-year-old actor previously said: “When I first read Whiplash, I was feeling dead inside. I didn’t have an interesting part [in Divergent], and I’d taken the film for business reasons: It was the first movie I’d done that was going to have an international audience. I called my agent and said, ‘This sucks.’ He told me about Whiplash.”

Opening up to the Los Angeles Times, Miles said that he was referring to playing a villain, working with frequent co-star Shailene Woodley again, and acting in a blockbuster film that would be seen around the world.

“Those were the ‘business reasons’ which every actor weighs; it’s not just the size of the part,” Miles said. “And if I said ‘dead inside,’ I meant just burnt out and fatigued from doing my first big-budget lengthy shoot and four months was a long time and I just wanted to relax afterwards.”
