— Actor Ansel Elgort, star of Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, in a tweet addressing persistent rumors regarding his sexuality. Elgort, one of Hollywood’s rising young stars, told his followers: “Just in case it isn’t clear… I like girls. A lot.”
However, the actor, who will play gay pianist Van Cliburn in an upcoming feature based on Howard Reich’s biography, was quick to affirm his support of his gay fans. “Being gay or straight isn’t bad or good it just IS. U are who you are. Be true to yourself,” the actor stated in a follow-up tweet.
Just in case it isn’t clear… I like girls. A lot.

Also let me say if I was gay I wouldn’t hide it. Being gay or straight isn’t bad or good it just IS. U are who you are. Be true to yourself.
