Elgort appears on the cover of the February 2015 issue of Town & Country magazine. He talks about starring in Van Cliburn and living in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn is nice because it’s a little more chilled out. Even if they do recognize me, they won’t say anything. I played basketball with these kids at a local court—this was before any of the movies came out—and now they’re like, ‘What the hell, man? You got all famous.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, shut up.’ I don’t want to be treated like that. I’m just trying to play basketball. I didn’t want my life to change. Once everyone starts treating me like I’m a famous person, it gets bad.
