Ansel Elgort effectively came out as straight on Twitter this week and followed the confession up with a positive message for his gay fans.

Ansel Elgort: I’M NOT Gay

Responding to speculation about his sexuality,  Elgort tweeted, “Just in case it isn’t clear… I like girls. A lot.”

The Fault in Our Stars leading man and Divergent actor followed up his tweet with another, explaining that if he were gay it wouldn’t be something that he would hide. Furthermore, he wants his fans to know that whether they’re gay or straight they should just be themselves.

Back in May, in an effort to appease Fault in Our Stars “shippers” who preferred the pairing of Gus (Elgort) and Isaac (Nat Wolff) to Gus and Hazel (Shailene Woodley), Elgort and Wolff recreated the movie poster together for an Instagram snap.

Incidentally, over the summer it was announced that one of Elgort’s upcoming projects include Van Cliburn, in which he’ll play the title character, a world renowned pianist who happened to be gay.
