Break out the tissues, folks. Because the latest extended trailer for The Fault in Our Stars is both heartfelt and absolutely heart-wrenching.

Based on the acclaimed novel by John Green, the flick tells the story of two teens, played by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, who fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.

After Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) finds herself feeling defeated due to her diagnosis, she happens to meet Augustus Waters (Elgort), who helps restore her faith in the beauty of life as the film tells the tale of their love story.

"Gus, I'm a grenade, one day I'm going to blow up and I'm going to obliterate everything in my wake and I don't want to hurt you," Hazel says as the cancer-stricken beauty is shown being carried into a hospital room.

"You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this word, but you do get a say in who hurts you," Elgort tells Hazel before he professes his love.

Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia and Willem Dafoe also star in the Josh Boone-directed drama.

And for Woodley, landing the role was a dream come true. "I read the script a year ago and basically said that no matter what, I will do anything to be in this movie. Even if I auditioned for Hazel and they'd be like, 'No, you're not her!' I'd just want to be an extra, because I'm so passionate about it," the actress told MTV in July 2013. "So I read the book and I fought really hard for it. And finally when they cast the director, I auditioned for him. And I guess he liked what I did, because I got it!"

Woodley, 22, and Elgort, 20, also currently play the Prior siblings in the sci-fi flick Divergent and will also reprise their roles in the upcoming film, Insurgent.

The Fault in Our Stars hits theaters June 6.
