Someone stole a bench used in The Fault In Our Stars from a street in Amsterdam

The bench had become a tourist attraction for fans of the film visiting the city.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT The Fault In Our Stars is the latest sensation among teenagers – but really?

A bench used in The Fault In Our Stars, which had become a tourist attraction for fans of the weepy film, has been pinched from a street in Amsterdam.

In a scene from the film, the two star-crossed teenage lovers talk and kiss on the bench while on a trip to the city.

So far the city isn’t quite sure who is to blame. It’s suspected the bench might have been taken away for repairs, but the city aren’t ruling out neighbours unhappy with extra tourist traffic, vandals or even fans wanting to own a small piece of film history.

“It’s a bit embarrassing, because we do keep good track of them, but it’s gone all right,” said city spokesman Stephan van der Hoek.

Fans of the movie visiting Amsterdam have started asking where the bench is — perhaps because maps of significant sites from its 2013 filming have begun to circulate.

“Keep your eyes on eBay,” van der Hoek quipped.
