The trailer for The Fault In Our Stars is also the most liked video in YouTube history. “We have a really crazy fan base,” Ansel Elgort said. Ansel Elgort said that people loved the original John Green book. When he asked the audience if anyone read the book, there was a huge cheer.
“It’s about two kids who are terminally sick with cancer, but it’s not really about cancer, it’s about a beautiful love story between two people,” he said. He also said it was different because it wasn’t about a healthy person learning a lesson from a sick person. “It’s about how two people with cancer are just as important as everyone else and their love story can be just as beautiful, if not more,” Ansel Elgort said.
