Ansel Elgort: I Was Never Sexually Attracted to Shailene Woodley

Ansel Elgort: I Was Never Sexually Attracted to Shailene Woodley

Ansel Elgort is a denim cutie for the April 2015 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands March 24.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Insurgent actor had to share with the mag:

On whether a guy can be just platonic friends with a girl: “If a woman is really pretty, it’s kind of hard. I’m not going to lie. Actually, that’s not true. Me and Shailene [Woodley] have a really platonic relationship. I’ve never once wanted her sexually, which is nice. But for me, if a person is someone I’m attracted to, and she’s my best friend, hopefully we’re dating.”

On his dream date: “I like romantic dates—going on a long walk in Central Park and then taking the subway downtown and going out to eat and ordering oysters. After that, you walk around again and talk. Morning dates are nice, too. I love doing romantic sh-t. It’s fun. It’s like you’re living in a movie.”

On spoiling the women in his life: “I like to buy girls shoes and jewelry. I buy stupidly expensive shoes. I got Louboutins for my mom and my girlfriend before. My mom was like, ‘I can’t wear these; they’re too high.’ I was like, ‘Mom, you have to try them – they’re so cool. They’re red snakeskin!’ She still wears them every so often but she can’t walk in them.”

    why would you be sexually attracted to her shes ugly

  • loren

    She is beautiful!but they are just friends..

  • Barry

    That’s an interesting point…
    She’s a great actress, but she’s doesn’t fill the sexy young actress type that studios and casting directors like because she pleases to women AND men.
    Her TV career proves that : she was on an ABC family show aimed to teenage girls, and younger, she was replaced by the sexier Willa Holland in the OC. Josh Schwartz, the creator, has always been evasive about that choice…
    But on big screen, she was better than all those TV “stars”.

    She is unattractive and has an awful personality. She says weird stuff that takes away any sex appeal.

    Why would he even mention that? How would he like it if she said that about him? No matter how neutral that comment is–its difficult to not be insulted by it.

  • Missy

    Really not sure if he’s just a cutie or a total weirdo ….

  • ama

    He could at least say “we have a platonic relationship” and leave it at that, but saying he never wanted her sexually is just rude, insulting and unnecessary. Besides, he himself is NOT attractive and why is he always pouting like a girl – leave that to Kim K…
