Ansel Elgort has just made a whole lot of ladies happy.

The 20-year-old actor from The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent shot down online rumors that he was gay on Wednesday.

Elgort and his longtime girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, broke up in August after first appearing in public together in June.

In the GQ Men of the Year Issue out this month, Elgort revealed one of his secrets to attracting the ladies. And it's not what you think! He's collected tiny figurines, which the magazine describes as "collectible trees and warlocks and dragons" (many from the world of George R.R. Martin), for years.

"There was always this stigma, like, 'Oh, girls will be turned off by that kind of thing.' But it's totally the opposite," he said. "Girls love it when you have some weird nerdy thing in your room. It makes you look less threatening, even though I'm, like, very threatening. I'm the most threatening guy ever."

Uh-huh. He's also really cute.
