Ansel Elgort & Girlfriend Violetta Komyshan Enjoy a Broadway Date Night After His Comments on Love

Ansel Elgort and his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan pose for a photo while attending the opening night of the Broadway show Slave Play on Sunday night (October 6) in New York City.

The couple were among the many stars who stepped out to check out the show, which is creating a ton of buzz for Broadway right now.

Ansel and Violetta are clearly still very much in love. Their relationship was put in the spotlight last week after he made comments about wanting to feel free to fall in love with other people.

The comments then led to the online bullying of Ansel‘s West Side Story co-star Rachel Zegler, who announced a break from Twitter following the tweets she was receiving from his fans.

Rachel Zegler Takes Twitter Break After Ansel Elgort Fans Call Her a 'Homewrecker'

Rachel Zegler, the young actress who is playing Maria in the West Side Story movie, announced she’s taking a break from Twitter after she was treated poorly by trolls on the social media app.

The 18-year-old actress previously tweeted about “falling in love” with Ansel on-screen on the day the film wrapped last week.

“There really aren’t enough words to describe the pride I have in Ansel‘s growth and beauty and literal magic he possesses on screen and off. Falling in love with him was easy. Happy wrap mi amor; catch ya on a fire escape sometime soon,” Rachel tweeted on September 27. The tweet has since been deleted.

Since that tweet, Ansel publicly commented on how he wants to find love with people other than his girlfriend, though he’s not looking for anything sexual with anyone else. Fans have been calling Rachel a “homewrecker” and sending her inappropriate DMs, which caused her to speak out.

“the fact that i have to say something is absolutely absurd. but the DMs and the name-calling and throwing around the word homewrecker over me expressing genuine love i have for my coworker is heartbreaking and i don’t want any part of it. so peace for now, i guess. be nice,” Rachel tweeted on Thursday night (October 3). The message was deleted soon after.

One message of Rachel‘s that is still up reads, “the internet has made me upset so goodbye for a bit be nice to each other.”

Ansel Elgort Wants to Be 'Free to Fall in Love with People' Other Than His Girlfriend

Ansel Elgort is opening up about his non-traditional view on love and wanting to have the freedom to fall in love with more women than just his girlfriend.

The 25-year-old The Goldfinch actor doesn’t want to have a sexual relationship with other women, but he still wants to fall in love.

Ansel has been dating ballerina Violetta Komyshan since they met in high school back in 2012.

“It doesn’t need to be sexual. I could be done sexually with my girlfriend,” Ansel said in a new interview with The Times. “I think we’ve been pretty clear that I want to feel free to fall in love with people and that [option] should be open, but sexually it can be closed off.”

“I’m in love with a bunch of my male friends who I’m not interested in having sex with, so why can’t I put the desire to have sex with women aside and let myself have love with women? I love [Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars co-star] Shailene Woodley and we never had anything sexual and that was great. There will probably be some sort of chemical thing at some point that you can’t help, but you just have to be disciplined and not be a f—— … We’re primitive beings,” Ansel added.

Ansel Elgort Politely Brings Down Critics Of His New Film 'Goldfinch'

Ansel Elgort is killing critics’ negative reviews of his movie, The Goldfinch, with kindness.

Taking to his Instagram Story, the 25-year-old actor addressed the negative reviews about the film.

“Critics are usually really great writers and they have to kind of choose a side,” Ansel stated in the video. “They decided that pointing out everything wrong with the film is the best way to write their reviews, their articles. They are all great articles, too. All the bad reviews are well written but there is a lot of good in the film, too.”

He continued, “The film does work and the people who see it enjoy it and are moved by it. The most important person it moved for me was my mother, and she’s not moved by all of my films. She really liked this one, which made me really like it, too.”

“So it’s still in theaters, take your mom,” Ansel added.

The Goldfinch, which also stars Nicole Kidman and Oakes Fegley, is still in theaters.

Ansel Elgort Reveals Why He Thinks He Lost Out on Elvis Role to Austin Butler

Austin Butler landed the role of Elvis Presley in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann biopic, but there were numerous actors up for the role in the weeks leading up to the decision.

One of the finalists for the role, Ansel Elgort, just gave an interview where he revealed what happened in his audition.

”That wasn’t a bad audition. I think it was great,” Ansel told the Huffington Post. “I was in the middle of filming ‘West Side Story,’ so it was a little hard. I watched a ton of footage and memorized some of his interviews just to get his speech pattern down and sang a bunch of his stuff.”

Then, Ansel added, “But I wasn’t really prepared.”

Ansel has been hard at work on West Side Story, which will hit theaters in December of 2020.
