A long time ago – like, we’re talking July last year – I called up the famous fashion photographer Arthur Elgort to chat about his trip to China with Linda Evangelista. Before hanging up, he said, “My youngest son is Ansel Elgort. He’s going to come out in a movie soon that’s going to make him big time.” That movie was Carrie – the Kimberly Peirce remake of Stephen King’s telekinetic thriller starring Chloë Grace Moretz.
Arthur Elgort was right. He did make it big time. “He believes in me,” smiles Ansel when I tell him about our exchange. He’s sat in the Soho Hotel, legs sprawled across the coffee table between us, munching on caramel corn. With only three films to date, the youngest Elgort is already girding his loins from the clamouring Tumblr ‘shippers’ (vehement fans who pair two people in a dream relationship). In The Fault in Our Stars, Ansel plays Augustus Waters: a cocksure hunk in remission who falls for Hazel Grace Lancaster (played by herbal hottie and homemade toothpaste guru Shailene Woodley). Together, they trek to Amsterdam to visit Lancaster’s favourite author, Peter Van Houten. What really happens, though, is a deluge from the beginning of the second act when the floodgates burst. You’ll sob in this movie, I swear. This acerbic account of young teenage love thriving despite being diagnosed with a terminal illness “says important things about sick people, shoots down the stereotypes,” says Elgort. So for those of you that get this, bring tissues along when you go. Okay? Okay.
Did you ever get to use Shailene’s herbal toothpaste?
Ansel Elgort: She offered it to me, the toothpaste, but I’m okay with Crest (laughs). She would give me stuff and I’d just eat it. I’m down for whatever, if you wanna give me something I’ll drink your drink – the thing about it is if she’s drinking it you know it’s probably not bad for you.
And? How’d you feel?
Ansel Elgort: I wouldn’t feel bad, I never got sick or anything. The funny thing is that with Shailene if you ask her what things are good for, she’ll like tell you for 95% of the things – the reason they’re good for you is like, “This is good for digestion.” It’s like everything is good for digestion now.
How’d you guys first meet?
Ansel Elgort: It was during the audition for Divergent. There weren’t sparks. We played brother and sister the first time we met. Shailene is a big presence, she dominates whatever scene she’s in. If the actor she’s with isn’t good, she’s going to dominate the shit out of them and it’s going to be a mess. So it needs to be someone who’s a strong enough actor. So you have to think about how can you beat her in that scene, because she’s trying to beat you.
