File a Missing Chair report: The green bench that Hazel and Augustus sit and kiss on in “The Fault in Our Stars” has mysteriously disappeared from its spot on Amsterdam’s Leidsegracht canal.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the bench — which has hundreds of replicas around the city — has been missing for at least a month. A large flowerpot is now in its place. The city was alerted to the disappearance when fans of the movie wanted to see the spot where Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort locked lips.
“It’s a bit embarrassing, because we do keep good track of them, but it’s gone all right,” said Amsterdam city spokesman Stephan van der Hoek.
Was the bench taken by fans wanting to own a piece of the movie? Did neighbors tired of tourists remove it? Is this a simple case of vandalism? It’s even possible the city itself took it away for repairs!
Van der Hoek promised that the bench would be replaced within the next few weeks, if there’s a replacement in stock. In the meantime, he joked, “Keep your eyes on eBay.”
