Transcript for Ansel Elgort Premieres 'Men, Women & Children' Trailer
Ansel elgort, the star of not one but two hot film, "Divergent" and "The fault in our stars" and now he's joining an ensemble cast from "Men, women & children" and so happy to have Hollywood's latest young heartthrob, I dare say. I'm sorry to embarrass you. But it's true. Right? I mean, it's been quite a year. It's been really amazing year, yeah, for sure. Like this is what I love to do and it's all working out and it's amazing. Yeah. You started in earnest acting at about age 14. Yeah, well, I mean I started performing when I was like 9 in ballet actually and then it all sort of -- one thing led to another and at 14 I went to Laguardia high school for acting and went from "Carrie" and "Divergent," "The fault in our stars" and then this movie "Men, women & children" where we're premiering the trailer today. Thank you for bringing it. Totally. What can you tell us about the movie? Well, this movie is really special to me and the whole cast, I think it tells a really important story which hasn't been told yet. The world has changed so much in the past few years with social media and the internet and how it affected us and how we communicate with people and the way that we have relationships in general, both romantic or just friendships and that's what it's about, how social media has changed that and the internet has changed that. So what do you think? Should we give everybody the exclusive first look? It's different. No spoken words here. Okay, I haven't seen it yet so this is my first look too. All of us. Let's go. ? ? ? ? Yeah. Makes you want to watch more. Yeah. Discover the little you know about the people you know. It's interesting. Yeah. That's sort of the bottom line of this 234ri78. Yeah, well, I mean, one thing that our director Jason said was it's so funny in this world now where all we do is connect, connect on our phone how like we're starting to disconnect and my character is one of the few characters you see in the shot right here I'm not on -- I wasn't on my phone, I'm walking through the hallway eneveryone else is on their phone and sort of like overexaggerates what's happening but kind of not. Everyone is always on their upon. I was just on vacation and so so many on a beautiful hike and everybody was taking pictures and videos instead of being on the hike. Exactly. That's what you see all the time and I hope this movie encourages people to look out again and instead of looking down. You mentioned before the ballet thing. I loved Reading that about you. You proudly own it. Very nice. It's been a while. The natural duck feet out. Would you ever consider incorporating ballet into movies? Have you been offered any roles. I'm excited because I think I have a long career ahead of me. I'm only 20 so I hope that throughout my career I can do a lot of different things and show the versatility that I have like from my training from when I was younger. But, you know, I don't think you should show all your tricks right away. Interesting. Everyone knows what you have. I think it's fun to maybe like do something and surprise people in the future. The tricks you have shown. This year alone have been pretty tremendous S. Oh, thank you very much. Such a lovely person. Thank sfwlu it's really a pleasure and I wish you nothing but the best and the film looks really spectacular. You had so many questions from our fans. Let me just ask you one. Sure. This is from Manda and she says, "What made you want to start acting?" Manda, what made me start acting, I loved performing in general and loved being on stage, but then there was something so honest about being able to become someone totally different and very interesting. You know, human nature is such an interesting thing. I think acting when it really gets down to it is becoming someone else and living through them and telling a story and I think that's what this movie really does and this character is so different than me and it was a real challenge but our director Jason Ryman who directed "Juno," "Thank you for not smoking" I trusted him and let the him shape my performance and become someone else. You showed us one more of your tricks. Exactly. Many more to come for you. Ansel elgort, thank you so very much for being and here and sharing the sneak peek. Catch Ansel is "Men, women & children" when it opens in October. You can watch the full
