Ansel Elgort Doesn't Want His Life to Change Because of Fame

Ansel Elgort Doesn't Want His Life to Change Because of Fame

Ansel Elgort shows his preppy side on the cover of Town & Country‘s February 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

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.”
