{New Interview}: @DazedMagazine Talks To Ansel Elgort About Shailene, Her Toothpaste, And Using A Leg Double

In a new interview, published by Dazed a few week ago, we got a hilarious and in depth look at Ansel Elgort. This is one of our favorite interviews featuring Ansel. We think you’re going to love it too. Here are a few of our favorite parts:

On Shai’s Toothpaste & Food…

Did you ever get to use Shailene’s herbal toothpaste?
Ansel Elgort: She offered it to me, the toothpaste, but I’m okay with Crest (laughs). She would give me stuff and I’d just eat it. I’m down for whatever, if you wanna give me something I’ll drink your drink – the thing about it is if she’s drinking it you know it’s probably not bad for you.
And? How’d you feel?
Ansel Elgort: I wouldn’t feel bad, I never got sick or anything. The funny thing is that with Shailene if you ask her what things are good for, she’ll like tell you for 95% of the things – the reason they’re good for you is like, “This is good for digestion.” It’s like everything is good for digestion now.


On Meeting Shai…

How’d you guys first meet?
Ansel Elgort: It was during the audition for Divergent. There weren’t sparks. We played brother and sister the first time we met. Shailene is a big presence, she dominates whatever scene she’s in. If the actor she’s with isn’t good, she’s going to dominate the shit out of them and it’s going to be a mess. So it needs to be someone who’s a strong enough actor. So you have to think about how can you beat her in that scene, because she’s trying to beat you.
There’re all these hilarious things on Tumblr which create entire narratives from out of context gifs. Are they creepy to you?
Ansel Elgort: They all like to ‘ship’ us (see Shansel). We’re not a thing. I think that’s really helpful – that we weren’t a thing. I’m really comfortable being open around her because I’m not like, ‘Oh no, I have to watch my step. I don’t want to date my co-star.’ There’s no pressure there. There’s no sexual tension between us, it’s all just friendship.
