Ansel Elgort will be in the March issue of Elle Magazine where he opens up about losing his virginity, monogamy, romance, Shailene Woodley, Agustus Waters and more!
The actor can be seen in the ‘Insurgent‘ movie, the second installment of the Divergent film series, next month. You can also catch him in Prada’s spring/summer ad campaign. In the meantime, check out some of the open and honest quotes from his Elle interview:
On losing his virginity:
“I was 14. I had no clue what I was doing, and neither did the girl. I didn’t even make the lighting good. That’d be one thing I’d do differently. It was, like, fluorescent, bright bedroom light, like, over the covers.”
On committing to one person:
“I think I could say this: If you like someone and the sex is really good and you enjoy spending time together, why wouldn’t you make that person your girlfriend? Why go around dating random girls and having terrible sex when you can be with someone you really like?”
On what him and Agustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars have in common:
“He’s genuine deep down. But on the surface he’s playing this character that he thinks is the cool, perfect guy. Honestly, that’s how I’ve felt when I’ve been single and talking to girls. Like, This is who they want Ansel Elgort to be. I talk slowly. I stand up straight. I feel like, Yeah. They’re totally being charmed. It’s working. It’s working. But I don’t feel like I’m being myself.”
On What Shailene Woodley taught him about women:
Shailene is very different. I wouldn’t use her as an example of what most women are like. She hates people pleasing. She wishes the world could be a place where we could be really honest and true to our emotions.
On his girlfriend:
It’s no one famous. To be honest, I don’t mind talking about my experiences in life, but details aren’t for everyone. But if you can find a girl who you can go to an EDM concert with, have a conversation with, who will sit on the couch and watch you play GTA for three hours—and then you go to bed and have amazing sex? That should be your girlfriend.
On who he really is:
“I’m a total goof. When I’m being really comfortable with my friends, I can be very goofy. I’m open with how I feel about someone.”
On whether or not he’s romantic:
“I like to go on really nice dates. I’ve made some money, but I don’t spend it on anything besides my rent. But I go to nice dinners. And I like to go with a girl. I prefer being with a girlfriend longterm. I prefer to be with someone I can trust. I’m more into that.”
