DIVERGENT movie is featured in the latest issue of Brazilian Capricho magazine. They feature an interview with Shailene Woodley and Theo James.
Here’s the translation of the interview…
How are you like your characters?
Theo: We have the same hair! [laughs] Four has got a type of masculinity that doesn’t need to be proven by showing off his six-pack. It’s more of a strength thing.
Shailene: Just so we’re clear: the six-pack exists. [laughs] I see myself in Tris because she’s strong and passionate, it’s just that sometimes she can be competitive in a way that’s not very positive. But I get her.
Comparisons with The Hunger Games will happen. What do you guys think about that?
S: It’s a compliment. THG is a success and Jen Lawrence is incredible. A lot of stories like THG and Divergent are about feminine power. I’m happy that girls get inspiration from them.
And these heroines still have time for love, right?
S: Tris and Four’s relationship is not like the one from the couple in Twilight. They’re mostly people with things in common, as opposed to, I don’t know, soulmates. It’s not a dependent thing. I think this is a good example for people.
Was it fun to shoot the intense scenes?
S: It was fun. I love to feel the adrenaline and I loved all the training.
T: Yes, the preparation is long, but even that is great. We get into character and, consequently, act better.
Was it hard to shoot the scene in which you jump off the roof, Shailene?
S: It was great. The photos make it look a lot more dramatic [laughs]. But it was fun. Seven stories!
Are you afraid of heights?
S: Yes, I do!
T: You say that you do, but it’s a lie. You looked like a monkey when you climbed the Ferris Wheel, so at ease…
S: But that’s something that’s related to my adrenaline. Like, jump out of a plane. One day I want to do it, I have to do it. Or I’ll let myself down. I know I can do it.
What’s the scene what will make the fans happier?
S: When Theo takes off his shirt in the middle of the movie. [laughs]
T: I like the Ferris Wheel scene. The lighting was amazing. There’s something sexy about it.
S: Very sexy. And visually it’s beautiful.
We’re going to have to wait a little longer for the ‘Four Collection’. I am a little sad, but hey – it’s for a good reason. Veronica took to her blog to talk about it…
Bad News: the three remaining stories from Four’s perspective that I’ve been working on, which were supposed to come out later this year/early next year, have been delayed until July 2014. They’ll be bundled together and sold as a hardcover under the title Four: A Divergent Collection, with some fun extra content, and at that time they will also be released as separate e-stories (so, if you’ve already bought the first one, “The Transfer,” you don’t have to pay again for it in a collection if you don’t want to).
If you are asking, incredulously, “why, Veronica? Why must you do this to us?!” My answer is: the stories turned out much meatier and more substantial than I was originally anticipating when I started them. There’s just so much going on—Tobias’s reunion with his mother, his growing disillusionment with the faction system, and some of his early moments with Tris, to name a few. So I just really, really need more time to get them right. I know it sucks, but I am sure that this extra time will result in better work and better stories for everyone to read.
Okay. Good News:
-If you already pre-ordered the second story, “The Initiate,” your pre-order will not be canceled. It will just take a little longer for you to get it.
-The stories are long. As in, they’re about seventy pages each, so if you add them together you get about 280 pages of Tobias’s story. Which is as long as some novels. So there’s more to read!
-The price for the e-stories will not change, even though they’re longer than anticipated.
-The stories will be better in July than they would have been if they had come out this winter, because I’m going to work my butt off to make them that way!
I need to go to Chicago now. Yes, Divergent Re-shoots are happening. Though we aren’t sure that there will be main cast there, thanks to OLV this is what we know.
Thanks to one of our readers, Chris, we’ve learned that there have been several Chicago filming permits issued for tomorrow, Friday, 12/6, for DVG Productions aka Divergent.
The permits are for filming around 1700 Milwaukee Ave, 600 Wells St, and 500 N Streeter Dr in Chicago.
The permits don’t give any clue about what exactly they’re filming so we’re not sure if it will include the main cast.
And then there are all the Chicago News Tweets…
Miles Teller has another film going to Sundance. The film – in which Miles plays a drummer – judging by these photos it’s gonna be great!
Whiplash stars Miles Teller (Footloose, Project X, The Spectacular Now) as a “talented young drummer”, who, “under the direction of a ruthless instructor” being played by J.K. Simmons, “begins to pursue perfection at any cost, even his humanity.” Damn. If that doesn’t sound cool enough, these six first look photos should do it.
Divergent is featured in SCI-FI magazine. We get a good look at the behind the scenes stuff going on. The magazine also features interviews with Shailene, Theo, and Neil Burger in the next issue.
Pick up the magazine now.
Shailene Woodley looks adorable hanging out with friends in NYC.
I really adore her short hair. It’s so cute.

Personally – no one can ever be Jennifer Lawrence. But then again no one can be anyone – everyone is the best version of themselves. Teen.com however has made a list of the 10 actresses that they think can be the next Jennifer Lawrence, and some of the names that came up were Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, and Britt Robertson.
Here’s what they had to say about Shailene…
This is a pretty obvious one. Shai is about to star in Divergent which has been pegged as the next Hunger Games. However, Shailene is known for being quite the hippie and even makes her own toothpaste! That’s kind of amazing, no?
