He may not have the face and body of a hot babe, but we promise as soon as he opens his mouth you’ll instantly fall in love with Nat Wolff. The star of The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns is just 22 (he was born on 17 December 1994) but he’s already winning hearts thanks to his many talents, his smarts, and a witty humor and naughty smile that would conquer anyone. Could there be a better candidate as this week’s crush?
Born in a super creative family (his father is a jazz musician, his mother an actress), Nat and his brother, Alex, inherited a passion for cinema and music from their parents and made these forms of art a part of their lives from the very beginning: they started writing songs at the age of 5 or 6, they learnt how to play a multitude of instruments (Nat’s favorite was the piano), and they founded a band, called The Naked Brothers Band, whose adventures soon became a TV series and then a movie, thanks to their mother’s help with production and directing.
The success of the TV series brought about offers of small film roles: Nat got a part in New Year’s Eve, then in Palo Alto and The Fault in Our Stars, and finally landed the main role in Paper Towns in 2015 alongside Cara Delevingne. He was on a roll: in 2016 he starred in In Dubious Battle (directed by James Franco) with Selena Gomes; this year, he will be in Netflix’s “western” remake of Death Note, the TV series inspited by the manga by the same name, which just became available, and in Home Again, with Reese Witherspoon, who in the film is a divorced woman whose life completely changes once she welcomes three teenagers as her flatmates.
What about his love life? Nat dated colleague Margaret Qualley for two years, and after that he had brief relationships with Suki Waterhouse and Bella Thorne. It is currently unknown whether there’s a special someone in his life; so dear readers, take note: he loves jazz and basketball (he’s a Lakers fan), so if you’re in New York… you know where to find him!
