How do you explain the crazy chemistry between these two ‘Fault In Our Stars’ actors? ‘We really like each other,’ Ansel told EXCLUSIVELY, among other things he likes about Shailene, at the Young Hollywood Awards on July 27. Watch the video!

It’s quite obvious that Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley have crazy on-screen chemistry — they won an award for “Best On-Screen Couple” at the Young Hollywood Awards on July 27. But we always wondered how close the two Fault In Our Stars actors are off-screen.  During an exclusive interview with, Ansel spilled all the details!

Ansel Elgort’s Chemistry With Shailene Woodley

“[Shailene and I are] pretty tight. I like working with her a lot. She’s really good. She’s a really, really good actress. She’s a really nice girl — really genuine,” Ansel, 20, told exclusively at the 2014 YHAs in Los Angeles, California.

When asked if he and Shailene, 22, ever turn to each other for advice, he said, “Totally! Yeah, we talk to each other about personal stuff. We’re close. We’re good friends, so it’s nice to have those kind of people in your life.”

As far as what it’s like to work with a great friend, Ansel added, “It makes it nice. I mean, if you hate someone, you don’t want to be working with them. You know? But we really like each other, so that’s helpful.”

Clearly, their fondness for each other won over their fans, because they squashed the competition for “Best On-Screen Couple” at the YHAs.

Shailene and Ansel beat out four other nominees, including Chris Colfer and Darren Criss for GleeEmma Stone and Andrew Garfield for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Mayim Bialik andJim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory, and Shailene (again!) with Theo James for Divergent.

Thankfully, we’ll get to see Ansel and Shailene together again in Insurgent.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do Ansel and Shailene have crazy chemistry? Should they star in even more movies together?
