Ansel Elgort, Interview Magazine

Looking good, Ansel Elgort!

The Fault in Our Stars cutie posed shirtless for Interview magazine's July 2014 issue, showing off his sexy physique in the artsy, black-and-white photos. The 20-year-old actor had tousled hair (reminiscent of Robert Pattinson's 'do in the early Twilight days) and wore leather pants (!) for the sultry shoot.

Ansel also talked about his adoration of the late Paul Newman. "He could play a lot of different roles, even people who were villains, and no matter what, you love him," the Divergent star gushed. "He was always such a relatable character—the smile, the blue eyes."

Other men in the business Ansel admires? "[Marlon] Brando was just really real," he said. "James Dean was always a tortured soul. It's cool to look at the old guys. But when I'm looking at someone's career, I'm not trying to be, 'Oh, whose do I want?' I don't really want anyone else's."

"I don't just act, and that's really important to me. I don't want to just be an actor forever," he said. "Right now I'm really into music. I want to score movies. I could be an actor first, but I don't only want to be an actor."

He does, however, "think it would be ridiculous to work with Tom Hardy," saying, "I hear some crazy things about him, and he's also really good."

But if there were an actor, living or dead, who got to play Ansel in the movie of his life, he'd pick Paul. Because, as he told Interview simply, "I trust him."
