Just before Christmas, on an empty playground basketball court in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, Ansel Elgort hits jump shots from 10 feet, then 15, then 20. He takes a step behind the free-throw line, squares up, rises, and drops another perfectly arcing shot through the hoop. “I want to dunk in the game,” he says, eagerly grasping the ball at chest level with both hands. “I want people to know I can do it.”

Two years ago, Elgort was the starting center for New York City’s LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, the singing, dancing, theater-geeking inspiration for Fame. “The best kid on the team was the trombone player,” he says. But now, after starring in a pair of 2014 teen-idol-minting blockbusters, Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, Elgort, 20, is intent on sharpening his skills for his first nationally televised contest—a rite of passage for any young celebrity who can adequately handle both the rock and the gale-force bursts of adolescent attention.

He’s talking about the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at Madison Square Garden in February, an annual exhibition whose past MVPs include Justin Bieber, as if it’s the game of his life. “I’ve been training, doing plyometrics, working on my legs,” says the six-foot-four native New Yorker, flashing a grin that’s both playful and knowing. “I want to dunk on Kevin Hart.”

Wearing jeans, high-tops, and a gray Nike sweatshirt, Elgort catches a pass and pops in a slo-mo left-handed layup. “It’s important to be good with both hands,” he says. It’s also critical, Elgort explains, not to get cocky with a lead like he did last year playing one-on-one with his Men, Women & Children costar Adam Sandler. “I went hard at him right away, before realizing he’s Adam Sandler, not just a guy, and I probably shouldn’t destroy him. Then he got in a rhythm and beat me.” Elgort wouldn’t repeat the mistake. “When we played again,” he says, “I kicked his ass.”

For all the talk about posterizing Hart and slaughtering Sandler, Elgort doesn’t come across as macho so much as striving and self-assured. Even his form on the court betrays a cool confidence, a willingness to ease into things. Despite hitting multiple shots in a row, Elgort doesn’t announce that he’s on fire or making it rain. Instead, he quietly glides from spot to spot, like in a team drill, hands out, ready to receive the next pass and make good on it.

He could have just dunked: peeled off his sweatshirt, turned his cap around, charged through the paint, and thrown one down—hard—replaying a moment he has Instagrammed to his 4.2 million followers before (he has also occasionally Instagrammed his abs). Finally, Elgort picks up the pace and explodes toward the hoop. He takes two big strides and lifts off, soaring to the rim before . . . finessing a finger roll into the basket. “I’m not just going to start jamming out here,” Elgort says, smiling as he tucks his hands inside the cuffs of his sweatshirt. “You need to warm up first.”

Onscreen, too, there’s a sense that Elgort is still just getting loose. Playing Augustus Waters, the James Dean of adolescent cancer patients, in The Fault in Our Stars, he has already flashed the kind of dramatic chops that later, with the subtraction of SMS romance and the addition of several birthdays, win adults Oscars. Honing his stroke, Elgort went emo again in Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children, playing a high-school quarterback who quits the team, deeming it and most everything else in his life meaningless, before overdosing on pills. Both roles portend even more nuanced ones, and bigger things, to come. “Ansel looks and feels like a young Brando,” Reitman says.

A year ago, he was a teenager—a city kid with no interest in college but a thing for acting and EDM. Two enormous movies later (Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars) and Ansel Elgort is suddenly enjoying a rush of mega-popularity that guarantees one thing: By this time next year, you’ll have trouble remembering the day you didn’t know his name

Here in Amsterdam, the third week of October marks several totally cool occasions for Ansel Elgort. It is, for example, one year to the day since he and the cast of his fame-making movie, The Fault in Our Stars, wrapped production in the Dutch capital—a moment that signaled an end to his old life and the onset of the very public existence he’d spend the rest of this year growing into. The week that I find him back in Amsterdam, he’s here not as a newly anointed Hollywood sensation but as his side-hustle persona, Ansølo, an electronic musician playing a big-time music festival. Last year, he was fanning out in the crowd; this year, he’s opening for some of his heroes, and his name is on the flyer.

More telling evidence of the difference between this year and last can be found at the canalside bench here in town where Ansel’s high-charm cancer-surviving character in The Fault in Our Stars broke some very rough news to Shailene Woodley. Today the spot is a pilgrimage site for young fans—the sort of thing that might’ve happened in 1997 at the bow of the Titanic, had it not been built on a soundstage. That’s actually a useful analogue: The Fault in Our Stars has done for Ansel what Titanic did for an early-twenties Leonardo DiCaprio, vaulting him to a measure of un-obscurity that’s difficult to comprehend if you don’t have a teenage niece or follow his social-media feeds.

While the inconveniences that attend this kind of fame are familiar—a teen-throb like Ansel, for example, has to enter and exit through the kitchens of hotels, anticipate mobs of young women prowling locations from which he just posted Instagrams, and avoid certain neighborhoods in his hometown, New York (the ones with schools and tourists)—not every actor chooses to handle that fame the same way. Ansel seems to regard his new normal as a seasoned swimmer does a riptide. Fight it and it’ll wear you down until you drown. But go with the flow (or rather, take lots of pictures and be the nicest guy ever) and the universe will respect your chillness.

By way of a place-specific example, here’s something that happened in Amsterdam earlier this week. Ansel meets a girl, and they make a plan to grab waffles. By the time they’re done eating, a mob of fans and photographers has gathered out front. Ansel’s idea is to head outside and take pictures with every last fan and then ask them to disperse. It’s become his standing operating procedure, and it works today, too. He and the girl hop in a cab, but after a block or two, Ansel notices a photographer following them: “I’m pretty good with faces, and I recognize him from last year, when he was hanging around the filming of The Fault in Our Stars. And so I ask the driver to pull over, and I get out of the car and go up to the guy and say, ‘Hey, man, how have you been? Listen, I know you have a job to do, but I’m with this girl, and we’re on this date, and we’re just trying to go to some park to hang out some more, and I don’t think we’re gonna be able to do that if you follow us.’ I was basically saying, Can you find it in your heart not to cockblock me? And you know what? He got on his scooter and turned around.”
