Fantastic Four Cast Defends Miles Teller After Esquire Interview

1 minute read

Esquire released a profile of Fantastic Four star Miles Teller on Wednesday morning, a piece that includes anecdotes about Teller’s DM habits (he sent one to Kobe Bryant), his nickname for Joaquin Phoenix (“Joaq”) and that time Teller apparently sent a rather heated text message to Whiplash director Damien Chazelle after he was cut from La La Land.

“Our latest cover star is on a quest for greatness. Sometimes that can involve a bit of dickishness too,” Esquire wrote in the piece.

Teller responded to the magazine on Wednesday afternoon with one tweet:

But now some of his Fantastic Four costars have chimed in to back their colleague. Jamie Bell was first, calling Teller “a great guy.”

While Kate Mara — whose character, Sue Storm, eventually marries Teller’s Reed Richards in Fantastic Four — quickly followed suit.

The fourth member of the cinematic superhero squad, Michael B. Jordan, has yet to tweet anything.
