Their forthcoming movie “The Fault in Our Stars” is already being heralded as the greatest love story of the summer and Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort looked adorable on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The young and beautiful costars almost didn’t get a chance to make the flick, as FOX 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler explained it wasn’t until producer Wyck Godfrey contacted her that she even considered the project.

Gabler noted, “Wyck called me and said, ‘You can’t pass on this. You have to do this. I said, ‘Why are you doing this to me?’ And he said, ‘Because. It makes you remember when you were a teenager and you were in love for the first time and you didn’t want to hang up the phone.’”

Meanwhile, author John Green (who wrote the novel) was shocked at the enthusiasm of the whole team. “I tried to write the funniest, most honest love story I could about these kids who were living with a difficult disease. I never thought it would be popular. I certainly never imagined it would be a movie.”
