Shailene Woodley Talks DIVERGENT, Taking on Her First Big Movie, Having Fun with the Cast Away from Set, the Stunts, and More

     March 17, 2014


With director Neil Burger’s (LimitlessDivergent opening next weekend, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Shailene Woodley.  During the interview, Woodley talked about if she was nervous to take on her first big Hollywood movie, why the police were called to the building where the cast was staying when they were filming in Chicago, if she was nervous doing the stunts, the sequel Insurgent, and more.

For those unfamiliar, the film is based on the Veronica Roth novel of the same name and takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities.  Tris (Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.”  Hit the jump to watch the interview.  Divergent also stars Theo James, Ashley JuddRay StevensonZoe KravitzJai CourtneyTony GoldwynAnsel Elgort,Maggie QBen Lloyd-HughesChristian Madsen, and Kate Winslet.
