I sat down with Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, curious to know if it was a stretch for them to revert back to their 18-year-old selves for The Spectacular Now.
Teller drew a few similarities between himself and his character, Sutter. Back in high school, the actor was a well-rounded, popular student who excelled at athletics, academics and music. While he had a few advantages over Sutter, Teller was able to play his role with the greatest of ease.
Woodley, on the other hand, admitted it was difficult to play Amy because she is a naturally extroverted person.
The Spectacular Now opens in theaters August 2nd.
