Ansel Elgort continues to make us swoon in his latest interview with Teen Vogue.

The Fault in our Stars actor and his gorgeous face grace the cover of  the magazine’s September issue and he confesses that he thinks of himself in quite a complicated way. When asked what has been the “greatest day of his life (thus far)”, Elgort explains that he considers himself more than just the guy we see on the big screen so he can’t pick just one day.

“You know, it might be a weird actor thing, but I think of myself as a few different people. Like, I think of myself as Ansel—that’s one person. And then I’m Ansel Elgort. That’s another person. And then I’m Ansolo,” he disclosed.

“So for Ansel, the best day of my life has been on the beach on Long Island with my family, totally chilling without a worry in the world. For Ansel Elgort, presenting at the Oscars was pretty sick. For Ansolo, I was so excited when Steve Angello, my favorite DJ, played my song ‘Totem’ for the first time. I started crying. Then when I heard he was going to sign it to his label, I was freaking out,” he told the publication.

He also revealed that Ansolo wasn’t his first choice when it came to picking his alter ego DJ name and has a good, and very honest, friend to thank. 

“I was so bad. I called myself ‘Hanzolo,’ but when I told a pal of mine at school, he was like, ‘Dude, that’s the stupidest name ever. You have to change that. Why don’t you just call yourself “Ansolo”?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, word. That’s cooler.’ Hanzolo just sounds stupid.” 

NEWS: See Ansel Elgort’s shirtless photo shoot!

During the photo shoot, Elgort showed off his bad boy side with a roughed up white t-shirt, rolled up sleeves and pair of dark pants. The tween heartthrob seduces us with a sexy scandalous look and slicked back locks that display what appear to be smudges of dirt on his usually pristine face.

We can’t help but wonder if Marlon Brando was a big influence on this particular photo since Elgort admits in the pages of the mag that the legendary actor is a big inspiration to him along with Paul Newman, Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin .

And if your heart can handle anymore of Elgort’s most perfect answers, well, just see what he had to say when asked about the best advice he has ever received.

“My father told me, ‘Do what you love in life; that’s the most important thing. If you just do what you love and work really hard, you will be happy, and everything else will figure itself out.'”
