Miles Teller Discusses Losing 'La La Land' Role to Ryan Gosling

Miles Teller is featured in a brand new photo shoot and interview for Vanity Fair, where he talks about losing a role to Ryan Gosling, his public perception and more.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Bleed for This actor had to share:

On pubic perception: “It gets frustrating when you know the person you are, but somebody writes something that couldn’t be further from the truth, and that gets a lot of circulation,” he adds. “There’s obviously a part of you that wants to feel understood…”

On losing La La Land role to Ryan Gosling: “I’m a pretty strong believer that everything happens for a reason. I’m happy Damien made the film he wanted to make…. I don’t get jealous of good reviews. There’s movies that were reviewed terribly that I cherish. I think once you start getting envious of accolades, it’s never going to be enough.”
