Violetta Komyshan, Ansel Elgort’s Girlfriend? 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Although it will crush the hopes of many Anselites, the name that Ansel Elgort’s growing number of fans have given themselves, it seems that the actor is in a relationship.

Many speculate that he’s in a relationship with his The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent costar, Shailene Woodley, but he seems to be happily dating his high school sweetheart.

Here’s what you need to know about Violetta Komyshan.

1. They Went to High School Together in NYC

They pair both attended the prestigious LaGuardia High School in Manhattan.

Komyshan’s Facebook page states that she is graduating high school in 2014.

The academic institution counts Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Michelle Gellar amongst their alumnae.

The school specializes in art, drama, and dance, and theater. And from the video above, shot by New York fashion designer Amanda Uprichard, we can see that their high school taught them well.

Elgort told Interview magazine about his high school experience:

My high school experience was very different. LaGuardia High School is a place of acceptance. You have every type of kid there, performing. The outcast girl would not have been made fun of in my high school.

Komyshan is a senior at school, and posted this tweet:

2. She’s a Ballerina

Her Twitter feed is filled with evidence that her life is centered on dance.

Ansel himself started as a ballet dancer. “I started in like ballet, a little bit. I wasn’t very good, to be honest. But then I got more into tap dance,” he told Jimmy Fallon.

3. Ansel Talked About Her in an Interview

In March, Ansel did an interview with the NY Post, and it got pretty personal.
The paper stated:

To the chagrin of those Anselites, Elgort has a girlfriend, dancer Violetta Komyshan, his high-school sweetheart.

He talked about his newfound celebrity status and how having a girlfriend from when he was an unknown is comforting:

It’s important to me to be with someone who I really trust, and if it’s someone I knew before all of this, that’s nice.

Kate Winslet, his Divergent costar, actually gave him advice on keeping his personal life private. He told the Post:

It goes back to what Kate Winslet told me: ‘There’s a part of your life that needs to be your own.’ I don’t know why who I’m in love with needs to be public knowledge.

4. Her Pictures Were Cleared Off Ansel’s Social Media Accounts

Elgort seemed to have cleared all the Instagram pictures that he had taken with his girlfriend.

When these links are accessed, there is a “page not found” message.

With the growing number of “Anselites,” this move is not so surprising.

Could it be that he was advised to do so in order to appease them?

5. She Hangs With Elgort’s Family

The two must be close since Violetta spent Christmas Eve with the Elgorts.

Sophie , Ansel’s sister, posted the above Instagram photo, with this caption:

Xmas eve begins & we can’t wait for presents! @anselelgort @violettakomyshan
