Jonah Hill Shoots Down Miles Teller Feud Rumors: “He’s Genuinely Respectful and Nice”
During a recent appearance on Sirius XM’s The Howard Stern Show, Hill was asked to comment on speculation that there was tension between the actors while filming their latest crime drama. Hill responded with a fit of laughter to Howard Stern‘s assertion that the onscreen duo “f–king hate each other,” adding, “No, no, no. That’s not true.”
The comedian explained the pair’s relationship, saying that although he does like Teller, “We don’t hang out very much. We live in different cities.”
In the film, which hits theaters August 19, Jonah and Miles star as childhood friends that set out to exploit a little-known government secret and end up with a $300 million deal to arm the Afghan military.
The Oscar nominee then went on to comment on Teller’s acting talent, adamantly denying Stern’s assertion that he was “difficult” to work with and calling his performance in Whiplash “amazing.”
“He’s genuinely respectful and nice,” Hill says, adding, “I don’t think we’ll end up being best friends in the world, but that’s rare. We never argued about each other’s acting style or anything.”
Hill, 32, also squashed reports that the flick’s director Todd Phillips failed to see eye to eye while filming, admitting the two “would have disagreements on scenes sometimes” but at the end of the day says he, “would work with him again in a heartbeat.”
All’s well that ends well!
