A funny thing happened to me on Wednesday, you guys. I was sitting around, minding my own business, when I saw a photo of Miles Teller shirtless, and suddenly everything changed. Truthfully, nothing will never be the same again, because I just realized that he's hot and it's making me reevaluate everything. All it took was the one photo of Teller's abs and pecs and generally ripped bod that he showed Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, and, all of a sudden, I'm realizing that he's been under-the-radar hot this entire time, and I just somehow haven't noticed.
But now he's all bulked up for his role as the boxer Vinny Pazienza in the upcoming movie Bleed For This , and there's really no ignoring it. Even when Fallon saw the Before and After photos, you could see his ears perking up a little bit. Because this dude came out of nowhere, Chris Pratt style. One day Teller is that adorkable guy that you don't give a second thought to; the next he's flexing in front of a mirror and I'm picking up my jaw from my keyboard.
It's just that when you really start looking at Teller, he has a ton going for him — even more than just dem abs! — and it's kind of unbelievable that we've been asleep at the wheel on acknowledging him as a hottie for this long.
He spent time in Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania growing up, so he's got a real mutt of an accent, AND I LIKE IT.
He Has Female Friends
Nothing more attractive than a dude who doesn't get entangled with every single one of his co-stars, even when he has repeat run-ins with the goddess that is Shailene Woodley.
Uh, he went to the Oscars this year. Heard of 'em??
Got a real soft spot for a rarer name like Miles, and I don't care who knows it.
He's A Triple Threat
He proved he can sing and dance by doing the remake of Footloose in 2011. Nothing sexier than that.
His Face Has Character
I don't know if you know this, but Teller was in a car accident in 2007 that almost took his life, leaving him with scars on his face and neck, and presumably a real appreciation for life. His very face comes with a story, you guys. Let's stare at it in wonder.
He Plays Instruments
Two of them — the saxophone and the drums. Sorry, did I say triple threat earlier? I meant quadruple threat.
He Has An Education
Most actors are lucky to have graduated high school without dropping out to get into movies, but Teller has himself a BFA from one of the most prestigious drama training programs in the country: New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
We're sorry we missed this for so long, Teller, but we're fully on board now! Won't happen again!
