    Ansel Elgort Said So Many Ridiculous Things About Women In His Elle Interview

    Oh no.

    Reading the interview 20-year-old actor Ansel Elgort gave Elle magazine is a little bit like a car crash — despite it being kind of horrifying, it's pretty hard to look away.

    Someone should give the Fault in Our Stars actor some media training, but until then, here's some of his most cringey comments.

    On the perfect girlfriend:

    But if you can find a girl who you can go to an EDM concert with, have a conversation with, who will sit on the couch and watch you play GTA for three hours — and then you go to bed and have amazing sex? That should be your girlfriend.

    On high school girls:

    LaGuardia is a wonderful, wonderful place. If you're like me and you love dancers, you just have to walk up to the eighth floor and you can get one.

    On his dad, photographer Arthur Elgort, photographing nude models:

    I loved going to his studio. I'd disappear into his darkroom for, like, an hour, looking for all the boobs I could find.

    On how co-star Shailene Woodley isn't like other women:

    Shailene is very different. I wouldn't use her as an example of what most women are like. She hates people-pleasing. She wishes the world could be a place where we could be really honest and true to our emotions.

    On being monogamous:

    AE: Don't make me sound like a playboy, because I'm not.

    Elle: You're into monogamy! We've established that.

    AE: Yeah. Cause if someone I'm monogamous with reads this, I don't want them to be upset if it sounds like I'm a playboy.

    Oh, Ansel.
