    Ansel: Oh my God, that's so sweet of you.

    True or false: Lily kept her waitressing costume from the movie.

    BuzzFeed

    The correct answer: False

    Lily: I do want that though.

    Ansel: It's too late, you have to take it while you have it. I remember for Carrie, my first movie, they made about 30 white tuxedos that fit me beautifully. I was like, "can I have one?" but they didn't give it to me. Eventually I saw them on eBay... they were selling for about sixty bucks, a tuxedo tailored to me. So I was like, you know what, I'm never going to let this happen to again, from now on I'm going to just take my costumes. The next time I wanted something was on The Fault in Our Stars and I wanted the leather jacket and there was only one. They said no because they needed it for re-shoots and I said I'd bring it back for re-shoots but I just took it right off set. They were kind of mad at me but I have the jacket now.

    Good job guys. 😎
