By Josh Horowitz

After seeing “The Fault in our Stars,” you just might need a long, warm, nurturing hug from a loved one, because chances are, you’ll have cried your eyes out for much of the running time.

If you’re lucky, you’ve got a friend like Shailene Woodley, who has taken hugging to another level. No actor in the business today dispenses hugs to fans, friends, and journalists alike like Shailene. So with her “Fault” co-star Ansel Elgort by her side, we decided to get a little “Hugging 101” straight from the master.

Among Shailene and Ansel’s tips: a little squeeze and massage is a good thing, but never ever use legs. Total rookie mistake. Watch Shailene and Ansel demonstrate how hugging is done the right way in this helpful tutorial and remember to bring your tissues to “The Fault in our Stars” on June 6th.
