‘Fault in Our Stars’ Cutie Ansel Elgort Goes Wet and Shirtless For Charity: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 2.27.58 PM

Ansel Elgort of The Fault in Our Stars strips to his skivvies and gets dunked with ice water in the latest round of Chillin 4 Charity. Much like with Rachel Maddow, Elgort was challenged by someone he knew – in this case, DJ Pierce Fulton – to upend a bucket of ice water over his head and donate $50 to charity. Elgort took to it without hesitation and, per the rules of the challenge, passed the charity dare on to The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, film co-star Nat Wolff, and Teen Wolf star Dylan O'Brien.

While some have levied criticsm at the challenge for the pocket change that celebrities are contributing, it originated with University of Arizona head coach Niya Butts and was originally spread amongst college basketball players and coaches, a demographic for whom $50 (or $250 for those that refuse the challenge) is a more substantial sum. By keeping their own donations that low, celebrities are arguably keeping the trend going and accessible to the general public rather than hijacking it as a ego-booster for the well-to-do.

But that's a discussion for another post. This post is about seeing Ansel Elgort shirtless and dripping wet, which you can do AFTER THE JUMP…

    Good job, Joseph Singer! I hate sloppy grammar and bad word usage, too.

    As for the Ansel Elgort’s ice bucket challenge, the fifty dollars raised for charity and the fact it encourages others to follow suit are both good things.
