Ansel- "I was an idiot. I hated everything about myself."
Ansel Elgort, Cody Fern, and Ashton Sanders cover the latest issue of VMan magazine. Ansel is promoting The Goldfinch, Cody is promoting the upcoming season of American Horror Story, and Ashton is promoting the upcoming Wu-Tang series.
Quick quotes from the articles about the young actors-
Ansel- “'When I was 18 I was like, I’m such an adult now, wow, look at me!' he says. 'And then I always look back and I’m like I knew nothing. I was an idiot, I hated everything about myself. I’m glad now that I’m changing.'" When asked about the 17 selfies he posted in one night on instagram, Elgort replies "I just wanted to try something."
Ashton- Says he was bullied as a child for his interest in acting. “I don’t know if it was because I knew that I was an artist, and art in the black community at that time was not considered the ideal thing for a young black boy to be doing. I would be doing plays, not playing sports. Barriers are being broken now, but that was not really welcomed in black communities back then.”
Cody- On his childhood in Australia "I spent the majority of my childhood catching snakes and genuinely pursuing kangaroos and rabbits. And messing around on farms and going bush bashing at night, which is doing up old cars—we [built the cars ourselves] and then went out into the bush [as a group] of people far too young to be driving. And thrashing the cars around, and hoping that we didn’t crash."
