Author John Green spoke with USA Today about The Fault In Our Stars adaptation calling it a “wonderfully faithful adaptation” and gushing over the performances by Shailene Woodley (Hazel) and Ansel Elgort (Gus).
Green, who’s seen a nearly completed version of the film, tells USA TODAY, “I loved it. It’s a wonderfully faithful adaptation.”
He says Woodley “sounds and acts just like Hazel does in my mind.” (Hazel is the novel’s bookish and sarcastic narrator who’s tethered to an oxygen tank.)
Green says Elgort is “just so Gus.” (Gus, or Augustus, is a former basketball star who falls in love with Hazel). “That’s a hard role. Gus is very confident in many ways, but not entirely.”

These all came from the LA Times Hero Complex…
“She really is very, very self-sufficient and is her own kind of warrior in terms of she wanted to do her stunts herself,” producer Lucy Fisher said. “She has a huge amount of inner strength. … She’s very mature beyond her age, as is Tris.”
For Woodley, the draw was the story’s universal appeal, she said, and its parallels with the world we live in.
“It’s not just about young people figuring their way through life,” she said. “It’s about young people being in really adult situations, and they’re treated like adults, which is how adolescents are these days. Everybody’s incredibly smart, and there’s not a lot of movies that do that age range justice.”
That’s just what Roth was aiming for. And though she doesn’t necessarily consider Tris a role model — she can be impulsive and self-destructive — she is guiding her own story.
“Tris is a character with a lot of agency and a lot of power,” Roth said. “One of my rules for myself was Tris has to be somehow responsible for what happens to her, for better or for worse; no acts of God.”
Entertainment Weekly shared this new still from The Fault In Our Stars in which Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort) “have a romantic moment at Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Okay? Okay.”
