I don’t know if it’s because I myself look like I’m still in high school (although now I might have graduated to a freshman or sophomore in college), but I always tend to get crushes on male celebs that are a minimum of 5 years younger than me. We all know how I feel about Josh Hutcherson.
With the release this year of not one but TWO movies based on young adult novels, I have been introduced to my new cougar crush.
His name is Ansel Elgort.
While he plays Caleb in “Divergent“, his breakout role is as Augustus “Gus” Waters in “The Fault In Our Stars“. If you have the unfortunate habit of not reading, “The Fault In Our Stars” is a YA (library lingo for “young adult”) novel by John Green that is about how you can find love in the least likely of places…aka a cancer support group. This book is great (although not as tear inducing as some would lead you to believe…or maybe I just don’t know how to have feels), and Augustus Waters raises the bar on what sort of high (and false) expectations to have for a boyfriend.
I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m sure when I do I’ll have the proper feels because Ansel Elgort is adorable. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to handle what happens to Augustus knowing that Ansel is playing him.
I mean, look at that face.
I don’t know what it is. I think I just like them quirky (case in point…the bf).
Anyway, Ansel, when you turn 21, call me, okay?
