The Natural

Some Young Hollywood Heartthrobs come out of nowhere and end up with everything. Ansel Elgort isn’t one of those guys. In fact, he’s already got all the goods you’d expect from a natural born YHH. The absurd handsomeness. (His pouty, knowing smile makes you want in on the joke.) The famously creative parents. (His father is a Vogue fashion photographer, his mom’s an opera director.) And the ability to, you know, act. (He made his Off Broadway debut as a senior in high school.) His cool-guy name alone—after photographer Ansel Adams—deserves Tumblr fan sites. And if his ascent to stardom were summed up by a hashtag, it’d be #WokeUpLikeThis.

It makes sense, then, that the 20-year-old was tapped to star in two of the year’s biggest YA-novel-inspired blockbusters: spring’s box-office- shattering Divergent and this summer’s tearstained, cancer-stricken-teens-in-love story, The Fault in Our Stars, (Not to mention, the lead in Van Cliburn.) As Augustus, the smooth-talking boyfriend of Shailene Woodley’s Hazel—”full of himself, but in an endearing way,” Elgort says—he’ll reduce even the most beer-can-crushingest bros to tears. “Anytime a movie makes someone cry,” he says, “it’s usually a good thing.” (Future cues to be taken from Ryan Gosling post-The Notebook.)

The key to nailing the tearjerker scenes, he explains, is just “tricking your mind into really believing—I’m helpless, I have no value anymore… It’s really good therapy.” A sensible, if grim, exercise with some humbling aftereffects. “I thought about how much cooler and, like, better a person Augustus is than Ansel,” Elgort says. “He’s this perfect guy. And I was like, Ansel kind of sucks.” Makes us wanna cry.
