Ansel Elgort Makes a Rare Public Appearance With His Girlfriend

Jun 26 2014 - 4:43pm

Ansel Elgort has a high school sweetheart! On Wednesday, the 20-year-old actor stepped out at Paris Fashion Week with his girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, whom he met at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in NYC. Violetta, a ballet dancer, hasn't been seen on Ansel's arm throughout press for The Fault in Our Stars, but she did walk the red carpet with him earlier in his career. "It's important to me to be with someone who I really trust, and if it's someone I knew before all of this, that's nice," he told New York Post [1] in March about her, adding that Kate Winslet [2] told him to keep parts of his life private. "I don't know why who I'm in love with needs to be public knowledge."

This has been a big year for Ansel. After the rush of The Fault in Our Stars press [3], he was hard at work on the Divergent sequel and Insurgent [4], and he recently booked the lead role in Van Cliburn [5], which is based on the famous pianist who died in 2013. Even though Ansel is taken, it's still totally fine to crush on him [6] and enjoy his amazing Instagram account [7], OK?
