For those of you that don’t know, the two young actors co-star in the flick which is based off of John Green‘s novel by the same name. The story centers on two teenagers struggling with cancer who end up falling in love, which is exactly why there was a mixed response to the ‘One Sick Love Story’ tagline.
“I had a really strong response to it. It’s definitely — it’s not a tagline that I probably would have chosen by any means. But I think that there’s so many people who are so passionate about this book that there’s nothing that will ever satisfy everyone. So I think it was just up to the discretion of the marketing mavens. For me, it was — yeah, not something I would have chosen. But it seems like half the people love it and half the people don’t like it,” Shailene told EW.
However, Ansel responded to the tagline controversy with a simple tweet:
I have no problem with the tagline. It's cheeky.
