Ansel Elgort revealed that he wants to explore polyamory and mentioned Shailene Woodley in a new Times interview.

Ansel Elgort has opened up about his love life, polyamory and dating Violetta Komyshan in a new interview with the Times.

Fans of Ansel Elgort will already know that The Goldfinch star has been with his girlfriend Violetta Komyshan for seven years. Violetta is a famous ballerina but the couple actually met in high school. They briefly broke up in 2014, due to Ansel's career but they got back together in 2015 and since then have regularly been spotted being totally adorable with each other both on and off social media. Essentially, they are cute af and we've been shipping them ever since Ansel became famous.

Speaking to The Times about his relationship and turning 30, Ansel said: "I'd also like to find a lot more love. It doesn't need to be sexual. I could be done sexually with my girlfriend. I think we've been pretty clear that I want to feel free to fall in love with people and that [option] should be open, but sexually it can be closed off". So he wants an open relationship but it seems like he's unsure if he wants that to have sex with other people or even keep having sex with Violetta.

Ansel then explained: "I'm in love with a bunch of my male friends, who I'm not interested in having sex with, so why can't I put the desire to have sex with women aside and let myself have love with women? I love Shailene Woodley and we never had anything sexual and that was great. There will probably be some sort of chemical thing at some point that you can't help, but you just have to be disciplined and not be a fucker… We're primitive beings."

Um okay?!! So it seems like Ansel wants to be able to fall in love with other people, where it's more than friends but without the sex, whilst still being in a relationship with Violetta. Ultimately, as long as Violetta is happy with their new arrangement, we are too.

In a previous interview with Details, Ansel opened up about their brief break-up by saying: "I knew something was missing, and I was like, 'Oh, that's love,'". In other words, it looks like he and Violetta are still very much in love and fans need not worry.

What do you think of Ansel's approach to love?
