Miles Teller, the star of “21 & Over,” will do a lot of things for the sake of comedy — but kissing a man really wasn’t on the list.

“The [guy-on-guy] kissing scene was something I tried to get rid of for a while,” he told Metro reporter Ned Ehbar on an interview about the new film about a 21st birthday getting out of control. “I was literally, like, pretty upset about that. And then we did it and it was just like CPR. … Inevitably, I did it for comedy. But they wanted me to use the tongue and I said, ‘Nope. It’s not that funny, man.’”

First of all, Miles, you’re wrong: Tongue is totally that funny. Second, your attitude is literally, like, pretty homophobic. This is acting — everyone knows you’re pretending.

But it gets weirder. Apparently, Teller didn’t mind being spanked on film with his male co-star, Skylar Astin. “There was a point where me and Skylar were shackled up and were getting spanked. At one point the shackle broke, so I had to bend over and fix it and there were all these girls around, and I was just like, ‘I’m sorry.’ Then I just went down and fixed it.”

So yes to two bros, pants down, gettin’ spanked on film? But no on kissing? Weird.

Stewart stops Sanders advancements

Now that she’s ruined his marriage, Kristen Stewart wants nothing to do with Rupert Sanders. “Rupert’s reached out to Kristen, but she doesn’t want anything to do with him,” a source tells Radar Online. “He texted her a number of times after Liberty filed for divorce; however, Kristen didn’t respond. She regrets ever getting involved with Rupert because of how much it hurt Robert [Pattinson] and the amount of backlash.”
