Shailene Woodley Divergent Role

Actress Shailene Woodley revealed that she originally turned down the role of Tris in “Divergent.” Shailene told Teen Vogue that the only reason she ended up taking the part was because she spoke with “The Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence!

I said no, and everybody was shocked. I asked Jennifer Lawrence, ‘Are you happy with your choice to take on The Hunger Games?’ And she said she wouldn’t change it for the world. She told me, ‘There are some things — don’t make a sex tape, don’t do drugs, don’t do things in public — that you wouldn’t want other people judging you for. But this is the best decision you’ll ever make.’

Shailene also fueled romance rumors with “Divergent” actor Theo James during her interview!
