It's hard to be liked and successful: Ansel Elgort

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Ansel Elgort says it's not a cakewalk for any actor to make it big in Hollywood.

On the most recent issue of Billboard magazine, the "Fault In Our Stars" actor opens up about how he handles criticism.


"I don't walk around calling attention to myself. It's important to be able to blend in; otherwise you turn into a Hollywood dou**e bag.

"I'm sure plenty of people think I am one, too. I'm super easy to hate. But it's fine. It's hard to be liked and successful," Elgort says.

The actor insists he will not go "full leading man" and only accept certain roles.

"It's easy to say, 'I'm going to just go full leading man right now. I'm going to not smile on red carpets, and I'm not going to say anything that offends anyone. I'm going to furrow my eyebrows and like, wear black suits, and only play roles where I'm really cool.
