Miles Teller Can Relate To 'Bleed For This' Comeback In Very Personal Way!

Miles Teller has revealed that he relates to the tragic recovering story in Bleed For This in a very personal way.

The 29-year-old actor, who plays Vinny Pazienza – the champion boxer who fought back from a devastating spinal cord injury in the 1990s – in the flick, recently revealed that when he was 20 he was thrown from a car going 80 miles per hour. The near-fatal accident left his face and neck scarred and required years of recovery.

“When the car accident happens, it was similar for me as it was for Vinny in the sense that you don’t see it coming and you’re not really even sure of the repercussions and consequences until a while later,” Miles expressed (via RedEye Chicago). “It’s really traumatic for the people around you. I know my parents, when they saw that car accident, that was tougher for them to watch than the boxing because there’s a real truth there. Where I could relate to it more was picking up the pieces.”

Miles was accompanied by his girlfriend Keleigh Sperry, as well as co-stars Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, director Ben Younger, Martin Scorsese and real-life Vinny Paz at the Open Road and Men’s Fitness premiere of Bleed For This at AMC Lincoln Square Theater last night (November 14) in New York City.

Also pictured: Miles and Keleigh spotted keeping it cool and casual while touching down at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday (November 13) in New York City.

FYI: Miles is wearing a Valentino suit with an Omega timepiece. Katey is wearing a Kimora Lee Simmons dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Graziela Gems earrings.
