NEW YORK, June 7 (UPI) -- Actress Shailene Woodley said the first time she met The Fault in Our Stars co-star Ansel Elgort, she found him to be "open" and pure."

The actors first appeared on the big screen together in young adult adaptation Divergent, playing Tris and her brother Caleb.

Woodley told MTV she first met Elgort at a cast dinner in Chicago for Divergent.

"I'd never heard anything about [Ansel] before meeting him on Divergent," she said.

He "was so quiet and so open and so pure. He was more observant. There was something very special about him, something that moved me," she added

The Fault in Our Stars opened in theaters Friday.
