Ansel Elgort is a man of many talents.
The actor, who plays Shailene Woodley's love interest in The Fault in Our Stars, made his first-ever appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday. While there, the actor admitted that he's always been a bit of a performer. "I started in ballet," he said. "I wasn't very good, to be honest."
"I got more into tap-dance because my dad [fashion photographer Arthur Elgort] took me to see Savion Glover at the Joyce Theater," the 20-year-old movie star said. "I love Savion. I can tap-dance a little bit. But the thing about the tap-dancing is I always got stuck. I got so obsessed with tap-dancing."
Jimmy Fallon asked the native New Yorker to show off his skills, and Ansel happily obliged.
"You're really talented, buddy. That's awesome," Fallon told him. "You gotta tap in the next movie!"
Ansel was being a tad modest. At the age of 9, he performed in The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. During his teen years, the Divergent star attended the famed LaGuardia High School to study acting.
