He began his acting career with a supporting role in the horror film Carrie (2013) and gained wider recognition for starring as a teenage cancer patient in the romantic drama film The Fault in Our Stars (2014) and for his supporting role in The Divergent Series (2014–2016).

He is also known for his performance in the lead role of Tony in Steven Spielberg's 2021 film version of West Side Story. Elgort was born in New York City. His parents are Arthur Elgort, a fashion photographer who has worked extensively for Vogue magazine and Grethe Barrett Holby, an opera director. Elgort's father named him after prominent nature photographer Ansel Adams (1902–1984). He is of Russian Jewish descent on his father's side; and of Norwegian, English and German ancestry on his mother's. Elgort's Norwegian maternal grandmother, Aase-Grethe, was in the Norwegian resistance during World War II and saved Norwegian Jewish children by moving them into neutral Sweden; because of these activities, she was imprisoned in a concentration camp. He is a cousin of comedian Sam Morril, who is the son of his paternal uncle. Elgort has two older siblings: sister Sophie Elgort (born 1986), a fashion photographer, and brother Warren Elgort (born 1989), a cinematographer. At age nine, his mother took him to try out for School of American Ballet. Elgort went on to study there for five years. Elgort attended Trinity School (New York City), The Professional Performing Arts School, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School and Stagedoor Manor summer camp. Elgort started taking acting classes at age 12 and at LaGuardia, where he performed in a rendition of Hairspray with schoolmate Kyle Jean-Baptiste and starred in the school's productions of Guys and Dolls. During high school, in 2009, he appeared in Teen Vogue alongside Polish model Jac Jagaciak in an editorial photographed by his father. Elgort's first professional acting appearance was a few months before graduating high school, just days after his 18th birthday, when he premiered a lead role in an Off-Broadway production of Regrets in March 2012. His film debut was in the 2013 remake of Carrie, in the key secondary role of the lead character's prom date. His first highly publicized role was in Divergent (2014) as Caleb Prior, the brother of the lead character. In 2017, Elgort played the title role in the action film Baby Driver, directed by Edgar Wright, and also starring Lily James and Kevin Spacey. Elgort's audition in 2014 required him to lip sync and dance to the song of his choosing. The film received positive reviews and performed well at the box office. Elgort received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance. Also that year, he played Addison Schacht in the drama thriller film November Criminals, an adaptation of the novel of the same name, starring again with Chloë Grace Moretz. Elgort played the lead role of Tony in West Side Story, an adaptation of the 1957 stage musical the same name directed by Steven Spielberg. The film was released on December 10, 2021 to critical acclaim, and received seven nominations at the 94th Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Elgort next starred in Tokyo Vice, a television adaption of journalist Jake Adelstein's non-fiction memoir for HBO Max. Michael Mann and Destin Daniel Cretton directed episodes of the series, written by J.T. Rogers. Elgort played the lead role of Adelstein and served as one of the series' executive producers. Although production on the series was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production resumed and the series debuted on HBO Max on April 7, 2022 to positive reviews. As of at least 2017, he resides in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. On his 21st birthday, Elgort asked friends, family, and fans to donate to the Thirst Project. In April 2020, he posted a nude photograph of himself on social media as part of a fundraising effort to feed those affected by COVID-19.

He denied the allegation in an Instagram post, saying that he and the woman had had a "brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship". The same day, another Twitter user accused Elgort of sending her unsolicited "dick pics" in 2014, when she was 14.
