We are seeing 'Insurgent' purely for Miles Teller.
Have you seen Whiplash yet? How about The Spectacular Now or Divergent? If you haven't seen these yet, you clearly shouldn't be reading this article dedicated to the perfection that is Miles Teller because you are clearly not committed to the cause. We have been in love ever since Miles Teller danced his way into our lives in the reboot of Footloose. (Yes, we're aware Rabbit Hole was his first big role, but dancing into our lives sounded way better.)
It doesn't matter if you're watching That Awkward Moment or Two Night Stand, Teller has a way of taking a character that’s kind of a dick and making him into the perfect boyfriend. Basically he's the most charming man ever.
Today is a glorious day because not only do you get to read about all the reasons we're obsessed with Miles Teller, but Miles has a new movie out called Insurgent, and unlike the first movie in the saga, Divergent, his character Peter has a major role in this movie, meaning lots and lots of screen time. In case you didn't see Divergent or forgot where we left off, here is essentially what you need to know: Post-war people are living in a faction system, but there are people called "Divergents" who don't fit into a faction. Tris is one of those people, and the government is trying to kill all Divergents. Tris, Four and Peter are all on the run because Kate Winslet, the head of the intelligence faction, wants them all dead. No one is really sure who put her in charge. Now, here are 20 reasons Miles Teller has become our biggest celebrity crush:
1. His lovely face!
Is pretty much perfect. The End.
2. He plays Peter.
Peter is an opportunistic prick, but Miles plays him oh so well.
3. Even as a villain…
… Miles Teller is still sexy. Sorry, but we will be watching Peter over Four this weekend.
4. Those drumming skills though.
Did you see the way those hands move in Whiplash?
5. He's really good at Catchphrase!
If Miles Teller can win Catchphrase with Wiz Khalifa, then it's safe to say he would make the best game night partner EVER.
6. He knows how to properly peel bananas.
"Umm... So I just realized I've been peeling bananas wrong my entire life. Thank you animal planet." It took him awhile, but he got there.
7. Because …Footloose.
Yes. He was in the reboot. You guys, he dances to "Let's Hear It For The Boy" and it's perfect. So much hip action.
8. He tries really hard to get that mustache.
And even though he looks super creepy, it's cute that he tries.
9. He was stuck in a blizzard with Analeigh Tipton.
Making us all dream that one day we could have a two night stand with him. (We will take one night too...)
10. He speaks sarcasm fluently.
Finally, someone who wouldn't think you're an asshole all the time.
11. His girlfriend is super hot.
Yes, we're crushed, but at least he knows how to pick his women.
12. He quotes Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
"Oh the weather outside is weather," he tweeted once reminding us why we're in love.
13. He reads Skymall on planes.
People who don't read Skymall on planes really need to question their life choices.
14. That time he played an alcoholic...
... And no one cared because he was so damn charming. Miles Teller was the only reason to see Spectacular Now.
15. He likes cooking shows.
He tweets too much about cooking and food shows to not be an avid Food Network/Gordon Ramsay fan. Basically Miles Teller would probably watch Chopped with you.
16. Hate That Awkward Moment...
... Love Miles Teller.
17. His grandma is his biggest fan.
He got her a Twitter account and she's amazing. She even nailed Emojis. "B sure 2 watch Miles Teller on Jimmy Fallon tonite! We'll be glued 2 the tv, naturally. After all, that's our grandson & we think he's cute," she tweeted this week. Best grandma ever.
18. He eats Chipotle!
Which is required of the perfect man. Obviously.
19. This Oregon Trail reference…
"When in doubt, caulk the wagon and float it."
20. He's a true 90s guy.
"Can you name all of the original Legends of the Hidden Temple teams?" And ... we're dead.
