We hadn't heard any specific gossip about Ansel, but he felt the issue was getting big enough for him to tweet about it.
Just in case it isn't clear... I like girls. A lot. — Ansel Elgort (@AnselElgort) December 18, 2014
But Ansel saved himself with a followup tweet clarifying he's down with the LGBTs.
Also let me say if I was gay I wouldn't hide it. Being gay or straight isn't bad or good it just IS. U are who you are. Be true to yourself. — Ansel Elgort (@AnselElgort) December 18, 2014
