GQ decided to make our day/week/life by putting the one and only Ansel Elgort in their August issue (it must be noted that I originally typed "on" instead of "in," but alas, Emily Ratajkowski is the cover girl because apparently the average GQ reader is more interested in a hot video vixen than a YA dreamboat. Go figure!). If you're not a self-described Anselite (#guilty), you might be surprised to hear that the Fault in Our Stars leading man was a ballet dancer and not, in fact, a professional model before his acting career took off, because the dude is a TOTAL NATURAL. Get him on a runway stat!

I previously thought the only person who could pull off a man-turtleneck was Zayn Malik, but Ansel totally proved me wrong and I'm so happy he did, (Also, Ansel? You can prove me wrong anytime! I'll DM you my number, OK, bb?) How about an argyle sweater vest? NO PROBLEM. Or a sweatshirt under a suit? NO SWEAT. He can literally make anything look great, even a checked leisure suit that appears to be straight out of the '70s.

The photos are nice and all, but what's way, way better is the accompanying video. Ansel tells the camera with a charming grin that if he was only allowed to wear one piece of clothing for the rest of his life, "it would have to be a pair of underwear. They'd have to be tight, like maybe some Calvin Kleins...I could play basketball in them, I could walk around them, I could go swimming in them. If it was allowed, I would be totally comfortable walking around the streets in underwear." Um...*one second, must compose thoughts*...is he trolling us? Is he trying to make our brains explode, and then immediately feel weird about said brain explosions because he's SO FREAKIN' YOUNG?! Luckily, he's no longer a wee teen since he celebrated his big 2-0 a few months ago, but still.
