He’s got the height, the freckles and a great personality. It’s no wonder why our Man Crush Monday is the sweet talking Miles Teller.
From making his debut in the indie film Rabbit Hole to landing roles in two major franchises (YA book-series-turned-movie Divergent and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot), this boy charmed his way to our hearts with his smooth dance moves and his perfect sense of comedic timing. With his upcoming film Whiplash t0 make its Canadian premiere at TIFF next month, we couldn’t help but make him this week’s crush.
Need a reason to love this boy? Here are five:
He Can Dance
Miles co-starred in the 2011 remake of Footloose alongside professional dancers Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough. While he’s no pro himself, we do love it when this boy shakes his butt.
By now you ought to know that this boy can act. He’s been a loveable country boy (Footloose), an alcoholic teen (The Spectacular Now), party boy (21 and Over) and even a fearless member of the Dauntless faction (Divergent). With every role that Miles plays, he still carries his own and makes us love him no matter what film he’s in.
Miles takes on a more serious role in the TIFF film Whiplash. In it, he plays an aspiring jazz drummer who’s mentored by a temperamental music maestro at one of the best music schools in the country.
Check out this intense clip from the film:
Teller can make us laugh both on and off the big screen.
Here’s a hilarious PSA featuring him and his Divergent co-star, Shailene Woodley:
He also has a favourite One Direction member and he’s not afraid to admit it.
He Knows What He’s Tweeting About
He many not tweet as often as your other favourite celeb, but when he does tweet, be sure to favourite it, screen capture it and send it to your grandma because you can use it for ever.
Here’s something Twitter should consider:
Is there an MLA format for citing tweets as a source?

When he notices a lady enjoying a pretzel:

For all we know, this could be the next big app:
There should be a mirror app. I don’t want to take a selfie, I just want to see if I have food stuck in my teeth.

His Friendship With Shailene Woodley
Oddly enough, his relationship with Shailene is one of those friendships we wish we could have. From starring in Spectacular Now as lovers and in Divergent as members of the same faction, we can safely say that we adore this pairing.
Just look at how adorable they are on the black carpet:
I’m metaphorically running towards Miles as we speak:
