“Divergent” is one of the most anticipated movies this year but is it worth the hype? Based on the popular novel by Veronica Roth, “Divergent” stars Shailene Woodley as Tris, a teenager in a dystopian Chicago future who must choose a faction – is she Amity, Candor, Abnegation, Erudite, or Dauntless?
Joining Woodley in this action-adventure from director Neil Burger is Theo James as Four, the Dauntless trainer. Ansel Elgort, Ray Stevenson, Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Ben Lamb, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Christian Madsen, Tony Goldwyn, and Ashley Judd complete the cast.
So is “Divergent” better or as good as its young adult adaptation sister, “The Hunger Games?” Find out in my review below:

Before we thought the cameras were rolling, check out my stolen moments with the “Divergent” cast namely Shailene Woodley (she’s a hugger), Theo James (he loves Manny Pacquiao), Ashley Judd & Tony Goldwyn (Judd loves the way I said Rosa, my last name), Maggie Q and Mekhi Phifer (Manny, Maggie, and Mekhi), Miles Teller & Jai Courntey (Jai loves my haircut), and Christian Madsen & Ben Lloyd-Hughes love my shoes! It’s fun and silly, that’s why I’m sharing this with you!

I love, love, love Shailene! Not only is she a fantastic Oscar-nominated actress (she received her nomination for “The Descendants”), she is also sweet in person (she’s a hugger!). And super down-to-earth much like her “Divergent” character, Tris. She’s our heroine, she kicks major booty, and she’s smart and witty – a great role model for young girls!
In this fun interview, we talked about her interest for the role, the many themes of “Divergent,” and what faction would she choose?

Yes, ladies, he’s hot in person! And utterly sweet as well! Theo James is fast becoming a star (he nearly stole the episode he’s in in PBS’ “Downton Abbey”) and many girls are swooning over him when they heard that he’s going to star as Four in the big-screen version of “Divergent.”
He is Tobias Eaton aka Four because of his four fears and he becomes Tris’ love. But that would be after he nearly tortured her because of the rigorous Dauntless training. In this interview, we talked about his interest in making the movie, his character, how he prepared, and what faction would he be in. Oh, he also loved my shoes!

I love these two! They were fun to talk to – smart and gracious! Maggie Q stars as Tori in “Divergent,” the mysterious Dauntless member transfer from Erudite who gives Tris her test in preparation for the Choosing Ceremony. Mekhi is Max, one of the Dauntless leaders
