No, you most certainly are not dreaming and stop pinching yourself because Ansel Elgort and Lily James really is making an appearance at Pavilion KL this July 17 to promote their new movie Baby Driver.

As a tribute to our forever #MCM, we decided to post seven things about Ansel that makes us weak in the knees:




1. He knows ballet

He received training at the age of nine (he was actually tricked by his mother into auditioning for the School of American Ballet) by the same instructor that trained Natalie Portman for her role in Black Swan.


2. He does not want to be known as a model (even though this picture proves otherwise)

He believes that he needs to earn that title and prefers to be known as an actor, music producer and DJ. At least for now.


3. He loves Hells Kitchen and cooking

According to Ansel, he makes a mean over-easy eggs and would not mind competing in Hell’s Kitchen (and Gordon Ramsay) if given a chance to.


4. He DJ’s and also produces music

He goes by the name ‘Ansolo’ when he DJ’s because he does not want to abuse the fact that he is an actor and use it to book gigs.





5. He sings too


If the fact that he can dance, act and cook isn’t enough to sweep you off your feet, then maybe his vocal skills will. Click here to listen to his latest song Thief.


6. Was a child model for his photographer father, Arthur Elgort

Ansel’s father, Arthur Elgort is a famous American fashion photographer and used to work alongside Vogue magazine. He used to use Ansel as an extra during his shoots.


7. Loves a girl with goals

Ansel claims that he loves a girl with goals and physically strong woman, which was one of the reasons that got him attracted to his current girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, a ballerina.
