Ansel Elgort Doesn't Want His Life to Change Because of Fame
Here’s what the 20-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On living in Brooklyn: “Brooklyn is nice because it’s a little more chilled out. Even if they do recognize me, they won’t say anything. I played basketball with these kids at a local court—this was before any of the movies came out—and now they’re like, ‘What the hell, man? You got all famous.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, shut up.’ I don’t want to be treated like that. I’m just trying to play basketball. I didn’t want my life to change. Once everyone starts treating me like I’m a famous person, it gets bad.”
On starring in Van Cliburn: “I’m just really taking my time and waiting until the perfect project comes. It doesn’t matter how much money they offer me, because I’m 20. I don’t have a family. There’s going to come a time when maybe I have kids and a wife.”
