Actor Ansel Elgort felt strongly about denying gay rumours, that he has taken to Twitter to tell fans how much he likes girls.

The ‘Fault in Our Stars’ actor tweeted earlier this week to say he liked girls “a lot”, “just in case it isn’t clear.”

He later went on to clarify to say that he wouldn’t have a problem if he was gay, but that he wanted it to be clear that he was straight.

He said: “Also let me say if I was gay I wouldn’t hide it. Being gay or straight isn’t bad or good it just IS. U are who you are. Be true to yourself.”

Others in Hollywood have taken a different approach to gay rumours.

In an interview with OUT magazine, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt last year addressed gay rumours by saying “it would be really tacky” for him to clarify, saying he refuses to give the gossip any attention.
