Recently, the 27-year-old Whiplash actor talked about the controversial comments he made about working on Divergent.
“It wasn’t so much bored as it was… that was my first experience on a film of that length — four months,” Miles told The Hollywood Reporter. “But at the end of the day, do I love going to set everyday? Yeah. With Divergent, I made a lot of good friends, but it came a month after That Awkward Moment, and That Awkward Moment was a string of four movies that I did that year. I think I was more burnt out than bored.”
“It’s funny, now we’ve both worked with Kate. She was on Insurgent, and I didn’t work with her on Divergent, but I got to know her on Insurgent. Those are two actors who are very, very good, and I thought it was cool that they did a film together with, like, 20 years in between. With Shailene, I would love to work with her once every couple years. We work very similarly, and I think she’s very talented.”
