Miles Teller is actually vaccinated, thank you very much. The actor tweeted as much on Monday night, saying: “I don’t usually feel the need to address rumors on here but I am vaccinated and have been for a while.” For good measure, the Fantastic Four star and good buddy of Aaron Rodgers added, “The only thing I’m anti is hate.” The clarification was seemingly in response to the resurrection of rumors regarding his alleged anti-vaxxer tendencies. After the actor appeared in Taylor Swift’s new music video for “I Bet You Think About Me”, reports recirculated about his supposed refusal to get vaccinated, which allegedly prompted a Paramount+ TV series to shut down this summer. The pause reportedly cost the production company $6 million, a figure executives have disputed.
The Daily Mail claimed in September that an inside source had fingered Teller as the unknown person who tested positive for COVID on set in July. Teller’s publicist told the Daily Mail, “Your facts are incorrect,” but declined to elaborate. An October report from The Hollywood Reporter, which identified the positive case as an unvaccinated “series star,” only inflamed speculation.
