American actor, Miles Teller has revealed that while filming “Top Gun: Maverick,” he discovered he had “flame retardant, pesticides and jet fuel” in his bloodstream after breaking out in hives on the set.
Teller made the revelation while speaking to Seth Meyers on “Late Night.”
“We landed, and I’m just like, ‘Man, I’m not feeling too good,’” the 35-year-old recalled. “I was really hot, and I just started itching like crazy. So I get out of the jet, and I’m just covered in hives – like, head to toe.”
The star immediately went to the doctor for a blood test and then soaked in an oatmeal bath to soothe his “sensitive Irish-Scottish skin.”
“My bloodwork comes back, and I have flame retardant, pesticides and jet fuel in my blood,” said Teller. “Then, I thought, ‘Wait a second, this is actually kinda cool.’”
When he returned to the set the next day, his co-star Tom Cruise asked him about his results.
“I was like, ‘Well, Tom, it turns out I have jet fuel in my blood,’” said Teller. “Without skipping a beat, Tom just goes, ‘Yeah, I was born with it, kid.’”
