This was the case for his tape for “The Fault In Our Stars,” the new movie hitting theaters this weekend featuring Elgort as Augustus Waters, a cancer-stricken teen in the process of falling in love with fellow cancer patient Hazel (Shailene Woodley).
Elgort told MTV News that he recently rewatched his audition tape, with himself and a friend playing Hazel, and that he didn’t mind what he saw. (Obviously producers didn’t mind either, as he ultimately got the part.)
“I was watching it and I was like, ’That was pretty good,'” he said.
