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.”
