We couldn’t have been the only ones who took a double take when Miles Teller took the stage at the ESPY Awards. The War Dogs actor was completely unrecognizable at Wednesday’s sports event when he presented the Best Comeback Athlete award with racing star Danica Patrick.
The 29-year-old’s hair was noticeably blonde with his eyebrows also dyed a lighter hue. It appears Teller has been sporting the new ‘do since late June as his girlfriend Keleigh Sperry Instagrammed her boyfriend’s blonde hair in a kissing selfie two weeks ago.
Nevertheless, fans were completely shocked when they discovered that their favorite brunette actor had changed his appearance. Few loved his new look and those who disliked blonde Miles had the best reactions on Twitter.
Production for Teller’s latest film, Granite Mountain, has begun so the star’s blonde hair could be for his role as Brendan McDonough, the only surviving firefighter of the Yarnell Hill Fire that killed 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots.
