Favorite Quotes from Miles Teller

“I don’t know if there’s an actors’ slow-pitch softball league I could join. My agency has a team, but they say it would be a conflict of interest for the people they rep to play because I could hit a pop-up and they’d have to drop it on purpose.” – Miles Teller
“So I think that in the beginning of your career you’re just looking to work. Luckily for me, my first movie was ‘Rabbit Hole’ and I got to work with incredible people, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, John Cameron Mitchell, and all the actors involved. So it’s tough, man, because you want to have credibility.” – Miles Teller
“When I was in high school, there was ‘Superbad’ and ‘The Girl Next Door’ and ‘Wedding Crashers’ and all these great movies. You hope to be a part of something that’s smart, funny and in that Todd Phillips-vein. You want to make something like ‘Superbad.’ That movie was so good and so funny.” – Miles
“First play I ever did was ‘Footloose.’ I played the part of Willard when I was 16. I think I wore my drama teacher’s jeans and her belt – that’s how small I was. I know a lot of Willard’s backstory from the musical that’s not explored in the film. Like he’s got this whole relationship with his mama, and he sings this song ‘Mama Says.” – Miles Teller
“For me, I still have feelings for all of my ex-girlfriends. In different parts of my life, I would miss that person. There’s something that drew me to that person, and I shared something with them.” – Miles Teller
