Miles Teller Slams Esquire for Calling Him 'a D**k', 'Fantastic Four' Co-Stars Defend Him
Celebrity

'I don't think there's anything cool or entertaining about being a d**k or an a**hole. Very misrepresenting,' the 'Whiplash' actor calls out the magazine for his unflattering profile.

AceShowbiz - Esquire just picked the wrong words to describe the star of its September issue cover, %cMiles Teller%. The actor was clearly unhappy as the magazine labeled him a "d**k" in a piece of his cover story. "@esquire couldn't be more wrong. I don't think there's anything cool or entertaining about being a d**k or an a**hole. Very misrepresenting," so the actor tweeted.

Writer Anna Peele wrote in the cover story, "Our latest cover star is on a quest for greatness. Sometimes that can involve a bit of d**kishness too." She also included unflattering anecdotes about the "Divergent" star, including a rape joke that he made in reference to Uber. "So yeah, he is kind of a d**k," the writer wrote.

In the interview, Teller also admitted that he thought he's not traditionally handsome. "I was thinking about that today, how I probably think I'm better-looking than the public thinks I am," he said with a laugh.

Teller's "The Fantastic Four" co-stars quickly came to his defense. %cJamie Bell% tweeted, "@Miles_Teller is a great actor & a great guy. @esquire." %cKate Mara%, meanwhile, praised her "movie husband" as a "crazy talented and a truly fantastic person."

Esquire has not responded to Teller's complaint.
