Miles Teller Says All He Wanted to Do in College Was Smoke Pot

Miles Teller Says All He Wanted to Do in College Was Smoke Pot

Miles Teller shows off his insane biceps on the cover of Esquire magazine’s September 2015 issue, on newsstands August 11.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Fantastic Four star had to share with the mag:

On smoking a lot of marijuana: “I didn’t do a single play when I was in college, because all I wanted to do was smoke pot. I did zero extracurricular activities so I could get high. I stopped when I started doing movies and went to LA because I can’t get a phone call and not answer it.”

On his emotional Rabbit Hole scene: “I was in the hospital when they pulled the plug on my one friend. I knew what it felt like to hug a mother the day she lost her son.”

On being photographed: ” I can either censor myself or not, and you’re always trying to figure it out. Do you live your life with all these filters and censors because everyone has a camera?”

    What an idiot.

    We can tell he’s not that educated from his statements and interviews in the past. So this is not that shocking after all.

  • Martha Bartha

    Thats why they call it Higher Education.

    once again…
    Im trying to see the ‘sexy’ in him that all are talking about or even ‘the good looks’ … then ‘his talent’… and then I don’t see a thing and I’m trying to say nothing at all …

    I tried !

    Lord, he’s annoying and insufferable.

    i think this guy is honest

  • Revengefan0101

    He has resting dbag face.

  • Ashleigh

    While I don’t care for the actor or what he usually has to say, I do think he’s talented. If we’re not free of ego-tripping personalities outside of Hollywood, why do we expect the industry not to have them as well? I think there’s tons of them…some just hide it better than others. He clearly doesn’t hide it.

  • brutallyhonest

    I don’t understand the uproar, my memory of American colleges is that the majority of kids are drunk or high all the time.
    So, was he supposed to lie and say that he was a bookworm?

  • Sassypants

    My thoughts exactly, I don’t see why people are so upset. Sounds to me like hes saying he wasn’t doing what he should before and now he is because he wanted to be an actor, I don’t sense an ego. I don’t know if there is something he’s said or done beyond this article as I have no idea who he is. Just basing my opinion on this article.

  • Revengefan0101

    He’s not big enough to be acting like this. Most people don’t know who he is. He should be humble at this point in his career.
