The “Whiplash” actor recently came out to clear the air regarding his vaccination status.
Earlier this year, Teller drew in a lot of criticism for his stance on COVID-19 and the vaccine.
In September, the actor tested positive for COVID while filming “The Offer,” a spinoff of “The Godfather.”
According to an industry source via the Daily Mail, Teller, who was unvaccinated and refused a covid test, tested positive on the Hollywood set.
Miles brought COVID to movie set in September
“Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn’t even get the test,” the source told DailyMail.com. “Now he’s brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.”
Paramount Television Studios also released a statement, “Out of an abundance of caution, we have temporarily halted production… We will continue to follow all safety protocols and monitor the situation closely.”
Teller’s publicist, Lauren Hozempa, told the outlet, “Your facts are incorrect.”
Now, Teller himself is speaking out about all the hoopla surrounding his vax status.
Miles comes clean about vaccination status
He recently appeared in Taylor Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version)” music video, and the media’s attention is strictly on him and the vaccination.
On Monday, November 15, he took to Twitter writing, “Hey guys, I don’t usually feel the need to address rumors on here but I am vaccinated and have been for a while. The only thing I’m anti is hate.”

The NFL QB has taken ivermectin to prepare his immune system and combat the virus.
He tested positive for COVID last month and was put on a mandatory 10-day quarantine.
When news of his positive test came out, Rodgers’ vaccination status was unknown.
He avoided answering questions about it in August and went on record saying “I’m immunized.”
Earlier this month, the football star went on the record and revealed he was in fact unvaccinated.
He told Pat McAfee and AJ Hawk though that he was immunized with a drug called ivermectin. This drug has not been approved by the FDA to treat ailments such as COVID-19. However, Rodgers mentioned that he did personal research on the drug and felt that, that was the best way to attack the situation moving forward.
Rodgers faces consequences from NFL
The reason that Rodgers did want to get a shot of the 3 main COVID vaccines that are available in the country was because he is reportedly allergic to an ingredient found in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. As far as J&J goes that one was out of the question because he’d heard of some people that had, had adverse reactions to the shot.
“I’m not an anti-vaxx, flat-earther, I am somebody who is a critical thinker,” Rodgers said. “I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines. I found a long-term immunization protocol to protect myself & I’m very proud of the research that went into that”
Rodgers was fined by the NFL following his COVID diagnosis. He was required to pay a $14,650 fine for breaking COVID protocols and attending a Halloween party despite being unvaccinated, according to TMZ.
