Ansel Elgort Gives 'Details' On Why He Cried

Ansel Elgort slicks his hair back on the cover of Details magazine’s March 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

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.”
