18 Things We Learned After Our Super Personal Chat With Ansel Elgort
Anselites, we have some AH-MAZE news; There’s less than four days until Ansel Elgort’s new film Men, Women & Children hits theaters nationwide, which means you’ll be able to see him up close and personal yet again! And speaking of getting personal with Ansel, did we mention that we casually had a phone conversation with him the other day? Not yet? Well, we did! NBD or anything, though!
We know that the majority of you out there have already fallen in love with the 20-year-old actor based on his roles in The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, but let us tell you that he’s actually just as wonderful IRL, too! We know — *mayyyyj swoon alert*
From preparing himself for those emotionally destructive scenes to his upcoming projects and everything in between, click through the gallery below to read our very special (and incredibly candid) chat with Ansel! (Spoiler alert: He doesn’t mess around when it comes to ordering Chipotle!)
In MW&C, your character uses social media to talk to a girl he likes. What do you do when you like a girl IRL?
"Personally, I’d probably tell them in person. The thing is, my character in the movie doesn’t tell the girl he likes her over social media. He sort of like says hi, it was fun talking to you and then she doesn’t respond. And that’s the thing; A lot of their relationship is in real life and that’s sort of the point of that relationship. They still talk online but then you see them lying together by the waterfall and they’re not on the phone. They’re just there and it’s beautiful. Life is about the human connection and no matter how much social media and technology rules our lives, human connection will always prevail and will always be something we’re gonna long for and want. I’m not too concerned. I have a feeling people are always going to want love and want that connection. Personally, I don’t think it’s bad to talk to someone over text sometimes – I usually text if I’m talking to a girl – but that’s just like the small talk. The real talk happens in real life."Photo: Paramount Pictures
