"Going behind-the-scenes with Ansel Elgort is never a bad thing—especially when there's dancing involved. When we spent some quality time with the Insurgent star in Brooklyn during his Teen Vogue photo shoot, he was totally in his element.
Ansel went back to his roots for the dance and theater-inspired shoot. From the backstage dressing room vibes to a gorgeous model accompanying him en pointe, his time in the studio definitely brought back some memories. But that wasn't the only magic that happened throughout the day.
Ansel's mom brought a very special guest by the shoot—Katie Hawley, who's battling Ganglioneuroblastoma, a type of nodular cancer. As a big The Fault in Our Stars fan (and Ansel fan in general!), it made her day to be able to meet her favorite star—and completely inspired Ansel in return.
The main thing we took away from this video? Ansel's still the same sweet, thoughtful guy we've always known him to be. Despite being one of the most-talked-about movie stars in the biz, he's happy to say he's still as normal as can be. As in a Chipotle-loving, street ball-playing guy who loves nothing more than lying in bed relaxing for hours on end. Watch the video above and see for yourself!"
