Nat Wolff thinks The Fault in Our Stars fans are “intelligent”.
The actor stars alongside Shailene Woodley in the romantic movie about two cancer-stricken teenagers who fall in love.
He plays the part of Isaac, the best friend of Shailene’s onscreen love interest Gus.
The story is based on John Green’s bestselling novel and Nat is pleased the film’s fans are generally avid readers.
“It’s great that John’s getting people to read,” he smiled to firstcoastnews.com.
“All the fans are so intelligent ’cause they’re all readers. John has helped people read again – that’s where people are turning, because he’s the voice.”
The film made more than $48million at the US box office during its opening weekend. Nat, 19, never thought the feature would be anything short of amazing.
“On set, I knew it was artistically gonna be a success,” he explained. “It could have been messed up by a bad director and a bad lead actress, but the director [Josh Boone] and the actress were so good, I knew it was gonna be great. And obviously a great lead actor [Ansel Elgort] and me… [laughs]“
Teen movies have been a big success over the past few years, with franchises such as The Hunger Games, Twilight and Divergent drawing in young fans.
Nat is pleased a smaller film like The Fault in Our Stars has also managed to get such a huge following.
“It’s amazing it got commercial success. It’s a small movie and it’s not a franchise, so getting that attention is amazing,” he said.
Shailene, 22, has been praised for her portrayal of lead character Hazel. And she’s already got her eye on the next big role.
“I would love to play Stevie Nicks,” she told Women’s Health. “She’s just such a fascinating woman who’s lived such a life and is still living such a life. I love that there is no other Stevie Nicks in this world.”
