Author John Green took to his YouTube channel vlogbrothers to answer fan questions about the new movie The Fault In Our Stars, based on his award-winning novel of the same name. As he didn’t think the book would ever be made into a movie, he is understandably delighted (and so are the fans judging by the box office and emotional responses). John has a role in the movie but he can’t say what it is. Since the movie is now released with an estimated $48 million debut, I’m sure his fans will find out quickly.
John is quick to say he was not otherwise involved in the movie, although he does praise the film as one of the most faithful book-to-movie adaptations he’s ever seen. To end the video John leaves the viewer with wise words, “The thrill of the experience for me was seeing humanity do what I think it’s best at, which ultimately is not competing but cooperating.” ~Andrea Hodgins
