'The Fault In Our Stars' Becomes 'Love Story' For a New Generation

Love Story is the classic movie that became the gold standard for Hollywood tearjerkers, the phenomenally successful 1970 picture about a doomed romance between a terminally ill patient and her boyfriend.

The landmark film made international superstars of Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal.

Now, a new movie is being called the Love Story for our times. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort play teenage cancer patients who fall in love in The Fault in Our Stars.

Shailene Woodley was besieged by young fans at the movie's premiere in New York City Monday night.

Woodley told INSIDE EDITION, "I think that it's really relatable, finding love for the first time, whether you're 14 or whether you're 90."
