TJ Miller Says ‘I Play an A-hole’ on ‘Silicon Valley’ – But Denies Real-Life ‘Bully’ Accusations (Video)

Alice Wetterlund claims former HBO co-star was a “bully and petulant brat” on set

T.J. Miller says he isn’t a “bully and petulant brat” — despite actress Alice Wetterlund’s accusations — but says he did play one on TV.

“I play an a–hole on TV, but I’m not a bully in real life, ever,” Miller said, while addressing the elephant in the room during his recent appearance on the “Jim Norton & Sam Roberts” show. The response was prompted by Wetterlund’s recent claims he was a “bully and petulant brat” on the set of “Silicon Valley” — which Miller says are inaccurate.

“It was not my experience that anyone was bullying her or mean to her,” Miller said. “Truthfully, I felt like it was difficult to work with her because she kept interrupting Zach Woods. And that was my perspective of it.” Miller went on to say the actress would interrupt Woods “during takes, and even when she was off camera.”

“I’m not a bully,” Miller added. “I don’t think I have the energy of someone who comes in and is like, ‘OK, shut up, the men are talking now.'”

Last month, Wetterlund — who played the role of Carla on Seasons 2 and 3 — tweeted, “TJ Miller was a bully and petulant brat and pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism,” Wetterlund. “They can f– off forever.”

“I’m pretty open about this, and I don’t know if other women on the show had a different experience than me, but it was kind of a nightmare,” she added.

Wetterlund’s comments come after Miller left the show after Season 4. In a statement last May, HBO said the exit was mutual, though reports of bad behavior by Miller later surfaced.
