Shailene Woodley & Ansel Elgort

Undeniably, author John Green’s hit young adult book The Fault In Our Stars has grabbed the attention of readers young and old, the world over.  Spawning a series of insider quotes and social media hashtags, the book has become something of a phenomenon.

As such, it’s hitting the big screen courtesy of director Josh Boone and Twentieth Century Fox, and HeyUGuys was invited to see the film in New York and talk to the movie’s two lead stars, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.  Whereas they played brother and sister earlier this year in Divergent, here they play love interests touched by a set of poor circumstances. Woodley plays Hazel Grace Lancaster, a teenager diagnosed with a terminal form of cancer.  Elgort plays Gus, a cancer survivor who finds himself bewitched by Hazel, and sets out on a mission to improve her grim outlook on life.

You can watch the interview below, and check out The Fault In Our Stars when it hits UK cinemas on June 19th. You can see all our our coverage of the movie here.
