‘Insurgent’ Star Ansel Elgort Talks Oscars and Basketball on ‘Live! with Kelly and Michael’
Ansel Elgort, Hollywood heartthrob and one of the stars of Insurgent, stopped by Live! with Kelly and Michael to talk his first time attending the Academy Awards, and reflect on his love of basketball.
Ansel talked to the co-hosts about his “really cool” first time being in attendance at the Oscars this year, including his hilarious method of deciding how to react at the award show.”You know what I kept doing during the show? I saw Clint Eastwood to my left…and every time the audience would be clapping or any reaction, I’d just look and see what Clint Eastwood was doing. I was like “If he was clapping, I’d clap.” The second he stopped, I stopped too.”
He also chatted about his basketball skills, having recently played in a celebrity all-star game. “I did alright.It was just so much fun, I got to literally box out Allan Houston for a rebound. It was pretty fun.”
