Critics and the news media are often ruthless when addressing celebrities, or suggesting something they need to do differently. They are people, after all, and most of what we call the news media swim in one of the pools labeled “blog” or “tabloid.” It’s quite refreshing when a celebrity hears something that is false, or is asked an incredibly inappropriate question and fires back a cruise missile. Here 9 (officially 10) celebrities who are unafraid to go toe to toe with news media, or saucy interviewers.
9. Miles Teller
It seems like almost yesterday… because it was only last week when Miles Teller lifted a Twitter hand and said, “Hold up, Esquire, I didn’t offer your publication an interview so you could throw me under the bus.” OK. That’s a paraphrase. But Miles is the catalyst for this list. He was featured in Esquire before the release of the critically-slammed Fantastic Four, and within the article and interview, it was suggested that Miles is totally cool with being a bit of a d*ck. That he’s a bit d*ckish. Which is different than being duckish, if that’s what you’re thinking. According to Miles, he said nothing of the sort, and suggested that the magazine used many of his quotes out of context in order to present such an angle and persona. He may play characters that can be a little d*ckish, but he, himself, is a good dude.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
