Ansel Elgort pretty much stole our hearts when he starred as Augustus Waters in the heartbreaking film The Fault in Our Stars, and the actor is proving that he is actually quite the romantic IRL. If we ever get the chance to go on a date with him, we're pretty sure it would be the best one ever. (Except for maybe that time we went on a date with all five members of One Direction.)
“I like romantic dates – going on a long walk in Central Park and then taking the subway downtown and going out to eat and ordering oysters,” he said in a new interview. “After that, you walk around again and talk. Morning dates are nice, too. I love doing romantic [stuff]. It’s fun. It’s like you’re living in a movie.”
Umm, we're kind of dying right now. How perfect does Ansel's date plans sound?! Not only is he the master of creating an unforgettable date, but he knows the perfect gift to give any girl in his life: a pair of shoes.
“I like to buy girls shoes and jewelry,” he said. “I buy stupidly expensive shoes. I got Louboutins for my mom and my girlfriend before. My mom was like, ‘I can’t wear these; they’re too high.’ I was like, ‘Mom, you have to try them – they’re so cool. They’re red snakeskin!’ She still wears them every so often but she can’t walk in them.”
The fact that he bought his mom a pair of the red-soled beauties known as Christian Louboutin shoes is all types of wonderful. Ansel's girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, is very lucky to have such a charmer in her life. We're just going to sit here and wait until he gives us a call and asks us to hang out.
