Ansel Elgort Sings 'Despacito' & Makes the Entire World Swoon (Video)

Ansel Elgort just covered “Despacito” and we’re not sure if you’re ready.

The actor and his Baby Driver co-star Eiza Gonzalez visited Spanish outlet SensaCine to discuss the film on Friday (June 23).

MUSIC: Listen to Ansel Elgort‘s brand-new song “All I Think About Is You”

While Eiza is fluent in Spanish, Ansel tried his hand at some basic phrases.

“Me gusta la comida mucho,” he shared. “Today I had amazing paella. It was so good.”

“And right now my favorite song…” he mused, before breaking out into Drake‘s “Passionfruit!”

But the best part? When Ansel and Eiza sang a duet of “Despacito” in the style of Luis Fonsi and Justin Bieber. (Director Edgar Wright made sure to bust his camera out.)

“Omg … did an interview today and they put us on the spot with Despacito karaoke … @eizamusica kills it tho!!!” Ansel tweeted.

Ansel Elgort Takes the NYC Subway, Just Like Everyone Else

Ansel Elgort Takes the NYC Subway, Just Like Everyone Else

Ansel Elgort isn’t the kind of guy to walk the streets of New York City with a bodyguard.

In fact, the 23-year-old actor often takes the subway with the rest of the population.

“I do walk the streets of New York all the time. I don’t take cars in New York. I’m in the subway or I’m walking or maybe taking an Uber X,” Ansel told Variety. “I’m not like with a driver guy or with a bodyguard. That sounds like a miserable lifestyle. When I’m walking around, I walk pretty fast, so people can’t catch me. Even if they do notice, it’s a flash. It’s: ‘who’s that?’ And then I’m gone.”

Check out 10 other celebs who also ride the subway too!

Ansel Elgort Got Nostalgic When Talking About 'The Fault in Our Stars'

Ansel Elgort Got Nostalgic When Talking About 'The Fault in Our Stars'

The Fault in Our Stars was an amazing, amazing movie, and JJJ can hardly believe it’s been three years since the premiere of it.

Star Ansel Elgort got nostalgic about the movie on Twitter recently, and after asking fans for their fave moments in the flick, was definitely feeling all the feels (sorry, we had to).

Speaking with PopSugar later on, Ansel revisited the role and just how much playing Augustus Waters meant to him.

“That role was a great role for me at a young age,” Ansel shared. “I felt like that was my first opportunity to really be an actor, and like, take a movie on my shoulders.”

He continued, “But since then I’ve done a lot of things that I’ve felt like I’ve learned a lot from; I don’t think I could have gone straight from The Fault in Our Stars to this [Baby Driver].”

Ansel cited other films he had done since then, which is just about 10 movies in between.

TFIOS means a lot to me because it was that first movie that everyone saw,” Ansel adds. “I filmed that four years ago, so I don’t think of that still as like — ya know, filming was only like a month long. It’s funny that a movie that was only a month of my life had such a lasting effect.”

TELL JJJ: What was your favorite moment in The Fault in Our Stars?
