Shailene Woodley On Smooching Theo James in Divergent: “He Was a Great Kisser”
Shailene Woodley may be no stranger to on-screen kisses, but she ranks her Divergent co-star, Theo James, among her best. No surprise there — have you seen this guy?! Fortunately, according to what Shailene told People, Theo’s personality is just as good as his looks… and his kissing techniques.
“He’s an incredibly masculine man with a beautiful soulful heart — and he was a great kisser,” Shailene divulged.
And it’s not just Shailene who’s singing Theo’s praises. The film’s director, Neil Burger, has sensed that these two would get along since the very beginning. “I saw it the first time they got in a room together,” Neil said. “[Their chemistry] plays out as electricity.”
But, as fans of the wildly popular Veronica Roth series already know, Divergent is hardly a love story. There’s a lot of action, too — a challenge Shailene was happy to take on as she filled the role of Tris.
“I love adrenaline and working hard,” the 22-year-old actress said. “It was intense, but it was also very fun.”
Divergent hits theaters March 21 — AKA the wait is almost over! In the meantime, you can check out the final trailer for the film here.
