SEXY ANSEL ELGORT IN APRIL'S ISSUE OF SEVENTEEN
Ansel Elgort covers the April issue of Seventeen, on newsstands nationwide March 24. The Insurgent star opens up to the magazine about his dream date, spoiling the women in his life, and getting into trouble in high school.
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 s***. 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."
On whether he ever got into any trouble in high school:
“[My friend] Jordan and I used to throw eggs off my roof and hit cars. We got in trouble with the police when I was 15. They came to our door. I told my dad, ‘We were throwing eggs off the roof and you were out of town and they got really mad at us and said if we did it again we would get in trouble, but we’re never going to do it again.’ I said it all in one sentence. He was like, ‘Okay.’”
