BILLBOARD – On a perfect spring day in the rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, birds chirp in sunlight-dappled trees as an ice cream truck dawdles past a tastefully restored brownstone. Inside, Ansel Elgort dribbles a basketball on his living room’s gleaming herringbone wood floor. “My whole life, I lived in an apartment where I couldn’t bounce a ball without getting into trouble,” he says. “Now I can bounce a ball!”

Elgort, the lanky 23-year old actor, singer, songwriter and recently retired DJ (“I was bored of making the same 128 bpm club record”), bought this four-family house two-and-a-half years ago. He had scored a “big bonus” check from The Fault in Our Stars, the breakout hit movie that, in 2014, transformed him into the kind of teen heartthrob who wins best kiss at the MTV Movie Awards — although he lost best shirtless performance to Zac Efron.

“My parents always told me, ‘The second you can afford to buy a place, buy a place,’ ” says Elgort, who grew up on New York’s Central Park West, the youngest son of pioneering fashion photographer Arthur Elgort and Grethe Barrett Holby, a modern opera director. (His siblings, Sophie and Warren, are now a photographer and film director, respectively.)

Instead of buying “someplace douchey,” Elgort decided to renovate this 1890 brownstone, keeping its original stained glass and abundance of dark wood: a bachelor pad as imagined by Antiques Roadshow. “Because he’s classy!” Elgort’s girlfriend, ballerina Violetta Komyshan — a petite, cheerful brunette — explains. She just popped in from the deck to join us for a freewheeling day exploring the city, which, Elgort tells me, is his typical MO when he’s in New York (which is most of the time). “I’m so happy I have my dream place now,” says Elgort, strolling past walls lined with his dad’s black-and-white photos of The Rolling Stones and Leonard Bernstein.

Elgort was raised in the heart of Manhattan’s elite arty-intellectual enclave and met Komyshan, 21, at the LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts (known as “the Fame school”). After years DJ’ing as Ansølo, Elgort, who signed with Island Records in 2015, recently started singing under his own name. He’s joined on his moodily romantic new pop single, “You Can Count on Me,” by the woke rapper-of-the-moment Logic, whose own album just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in May. (Elgort also sings on Logic’s “Killing Spree,” which the two recently performed together at the Governors Ball Music Festival.)

And now, Elgort’s about to star in one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer. In Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver — a stylish heist film with a 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, which Sony bumped up from an August release to the heart of blockbuster season, June 28, after it won raves at South by Southwest in March — Elgort plays Baby, an enigmatic getaway driver who compulsively listens to music to relieve his tinnitus. The movie itself hurtles forward on the power of a meticulously curated soundtrack ranging from Queen’s “Brighton Rock” to Beck’s “Debra.”

Wearing Wayfarers and an ever-present iPod, Elgort effortlessly lopes through the film like some hybrid of Fred Astaire, Tom Cruise in Risky Business and John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. “He’s a soft-spoken badass,” says Elgort of Baby. “He’s all bite, no bark.”

NYLON – The following feature appears in the June/July 2017 issue of NYLON Guys.

Please don’t make me sound like a douchebag.”

That’s Ansel Elgort’s half-serious plea, early on in the conversation we’re having on a spring afternoon in Brooklyn. We’re at a tangy-smelling climbing gym located in a neighborhood flush with industrial warehouses, a spot he’s been coming to for eight years, since he was about 15, and where the employees know him not as Ansel Elgort, Movie Star™, but as a goofy, energetic regular who likes to scale the walls a few times per week when he’s in town, the kind of guy who, when an employee offers him a sip of her mango smoothie, happily takes her up on it. (The smoothie is pretty tasty, he confirms.)

But here’s the thing: Elgort thinks he may have just compared himself to Pablo Picasso (and in fact he kind of did), but it’s an honest—or make that earnest—mistake. See, the night before we meet, he encountered one of those surreal, pinch-me-I’m-dreaming situations that up-and-coming actors sometimes find themselves in. He was hanging out at the Manhattan townhouse of Diana Widmaier-Picasso, granddaughter of Pablo, hobnobbing with A-listers Robert De Niro and Whoopi Goldberg, television mastermind Ryan Murphy, and cinematic auteurs Baz Luhrmann and David O. Russell. The whole experience was like an electric rod right through him, inspiring and energizing, and it got him thinking about Picasso, and then art, and about how, for Picasso, art wasn’t about the finished product—it was about the process. Then a light bulb went off.

That’s why he was so prolific,” he says excitedly, between sets of clambering up the gym walls like an overgrown simian, albeit one with a boyish jaw and pout worthy of 7.6 million Instagram followers. His hands and black sweats are dusted white with climber’s chalk, his hair an untamed tangle on his head, and his gait a turned-out waddle, thanks to years of dance lessons. “He wasn’t overthinking it, he was just constantly making art.” That’s what Elgort, who exploded onto the scene just three years ago, starring in the hit teen tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars, adapted from the YA bestseller by John Green, wants—to create art, to constantly evolve, to, you know, be like Picasso. “He did a lot of different-looking stuff over time. Sometimes he did things that were very three-dimensional, sometimes he did things that were very flat, sometimes he did sculpture. He went all over the place. I think it’s okay to do that.” And without missing a beat: “My music is changing constantly. Every time I make a new song, it’s a different sound. And that’s okay, too. For whatever reason, society wants you to do one thing.” It’s here that he grimaces. “I’m not trying to compare myself to Picasso,” he continues. “So, please don’t make me sound like a douchebag.”

Ansel Elgort is many things, but a douchebag is not one of them. He wouldn’t even have time to be one, even if he were so inclined. A New York native and son of famed photographer Arthur Elgort, the 23-year-old has parlayed an adolescent interest in musical theater—he went to Manhattan’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, on which the movie Fame was based, and attended Stagedoor Manor, a musical theater summer camp that counts Robert Downey Jr. and Natalie Portman as alumni—into a career as a Renaissance man for the social-media age. He’s an actor, singer, music producer, DJ (as alter ego Ansolo), and dancer. Right now he has four film projects in production, in addition to this summer’s car-chase flick Baby Driver. He released the electronic power ballad “Thief” in the spring along with an accompanying music video, a family affair directed by his brother and starring his girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan. And that’s not to mention his normal-guy hobbies like shooting basketball, putting in a few hours a week at the local climbing gym, playing video games, and keeping up with his love of making miniature models (yes, really).
