Ansel Elgort Just Friend-Zoned Shailene Woodley So Hard
In an interview with Seventeen magazine, the 21-year-old actor was asked: Can men and women truly just be friends? Interestingly enough, he immediately responded that platonic relationships between the opposite sex never seem to work out, but quickly reconsidered after realizing his own relationship with Woodley.
“If a woman is really pretty, it’s kind of hard. I’m not going to lie,” Elgort explained before correcting himself. “Actually, that’s not true. Me and Shailene have a really platonic relationship. I’ve never once wanted her sexually, which is nice.”
Well, we certainly hope Woodley isn’t offended and doesn’t mind be friend-zoned like that!
Elgort — who just split from his high school sweetheart last year — also adds, “For me, if a person is someone I’m attracted to, and she’s my best friend, hopefully we’re dating.”
So how does he swoon said girl? “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.” Elgort reveals. “After that, you walk around again and talk. Morning dates are nice, too. I love doing romantic shit. It’s fun. It’s like you’re living in a movie.”
And as if that wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with him, he also adds, “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.”
Okay, we’re officially obsessed with you, Ansel!
