Ansel Elgort Says He's Just Like 'Fault' Character Augustus - 'Quirky, Weird, & Nerdy'

Ansel Elgort holds out the chair for Shailene Woodley in this new still from their upcoming movie, The Fault in Our Stars.

Speaking with Teen Vogue, the 20-year-old opened about his character, working with Shailene and more. Check it:

On Augustus Waters: “Augustus is quirky, weird, and nerdy. That’s kind of how I am in real life. Really! I paint miniatures and play video games, too. I have a lot in common with the guy!”

On his second movie with Shailene: “She is a rare girl and not just in this industry—I mean out of everyone I’ve ever met. She plays Hazel negatively in the beginning, which is not very Shailene at all. Then you see her open up because of Gus, and it’s beautiful.”

On the film: “We would cry all the time. It felt good. I let it out…We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam together. I bet we walked every single block…It makes me think of a significant other. Fault is a beautiful, honorable love story that I hope I’ll get to experience in my own lifetime. It makes you grateful for any love you have in your life.”
