Ansel Elgort Gives 'Details' On Why He Cried
Here’s what the 20-year-old actor had to share:
On playing basketball against Men, Women & Children co-star Adam Sandler: “It’s important to be good with both hands, I went hard at him right away, before realizing he’s Adam Sandler, not just a guy, and I probably shouldn’t destroy him. Then he got in a rhythm and beat me. When we played again, I kicked his ass.”
On not wanting to ever choose a role based on money: “That’s one reason I want to buy a house now, So I can have my place and not worry about money. Then I can do plays. Do Broadway. Make whatever movie I want and not feel like, ‘Well, I have to pay a mortgage and take this job and that job.’ The minute you start thinking, ‘I don’t want to do that, but it’ll make me money,’ is when you start f–king yourself. I don’t want money to ever drive my career. I want my career to be driven by what I want to do in art.”
On missing the opening night of his father’s retrospective show and making sacrifices: “I actually cried. I left the decision up to my mom. But there’s going to be many more tough decisions ahead.”
