Ansel Elgort shares nude and 'OnlyFans link' on Instagram to help raise money for hospital workers

The 'Baby Driver' star is just doin' his bit.

2020-04-22

At this moment of global crisis, people everywhere are working out they can help efforts to combat coronavirus.

Thankfully for us, Ansel Elgort decided to, um, give his body to science on Tuesday (21 April) after sharing an eye-popping nude on Instagram along with an 'OnlyFans link' leading to a page raising money for a hospital in New York City, where he lives.

The star of The Fault In Our Stars and the Divergent series, 26, sent the internet into meltdown after posting the black and white image of himself in the shower, with just a carefully-positioned hand to preserve his modesty.

The actor also credited his own father with taking the photo, but frankly it's too early in the morning to try to unpack that particular box.

While the post was later removed over violated Instagram's nudity policy (for shame!) Ansel's plan does appear to have given a boost to the Brookdale Hospital GoFundMe page, with tens of thousands of extra dollars being added to the page's donation total, which currently stands at over $210,000.

Speaking to followers in an Instagram story video later, Elgort said: "I just wanted to say thanks a lot. Look how much - everybody's raised a lot of money.

"I don't know how much of this is from the post, but seems like a lot of people have been giving the last few hours. Looks like it was worth it."

The screen star continud: "Unfortunately Instagram told me I gotta take my post down, because it's nudity, so I have to take the post down. Maybe I'll be post a version that cuts a little bit higher, how about that? Sorry if I offended anyone, but we did a good thing."

He added: "My dad took the picture, by the way. He was mad, he said I needed to give him credit."
