Best known as John Green's sick love story, "Fault In Our Stars" will soon to premiere on the big screen featuring both stars from "Divergent," Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Ansel Elgort as Gus Waters. Based on the highly acclaimed novel, the drama-comedy film is a mix of sweet and heart melting quotes that will make anyone fall in love all over again.

Directed by Josh Boone, "The Fault In Our Stars" is a story about two teenage cancer survivors whose life changed after they met in a cancer group. Filled with quotes about love and faith, author John Green revealed that he cried a lot while the film was on production.

"I cried almost everyday," says Green during the Yahoo Press Conference posted on kpopstarz.com. "I cried because it was really overwhelming to me that all these really talented people were bringing so much passion and so much talent to the story that I'd written and giving it a new life."

Bringing to life the dreamy Gus Waters, New Yorker Ansel Elgort is clearly the best actor for the role. Playing the role as Woodley's younger brother in "Divergent" did not stop him to have a great chemistry with the actress, and in return the two have an undeniable spark while filming the movie.

When asked how he relates to his character as Gus, the 20-year-old actor revealed that he is more like Gus in real life. "Augustus is quirky, weird, and nerdy. That's kind of how I am in real life,"  he said in an interview with Teen Vogue. "Really! I paint miniatures and play video games, too. I have a lot in common with the guy!"

"Fault is a beautiful, honorable love story that I hope I'll get to experience in my own lifetime. It makes you grateful for any love you have in your life," he added.
