Shailene Woodley embraces being Divergent

Posted by Alexa on March 23, 2014 • Filed under Articles and Interviews, Gallery Updates, Photoshoots

LOS ANGELES TIMES – As the heroine of this weekend’s box office juggernaut, “Divergent,” actress Shailene Woodley threw knives, shot guns and fought in a ring. But of all the daring scenes she filmed, scaling the 150-foot Ferris wheel at Chicago’s Navy Pier in freezing temperatures was Woodley’s favorite.

“It was such a special night. It was the third full moon of the year, and it was a supermoon, and supermoons are very powerful,” she reminisced, in what the world is quickly learning to be trademark Shailene speak. “So to watch it go across the sky as we were climbing up and down this ladder for 12 hours, it was magical. It was so romantic.”

It may have been an almost-spiritual experience for Woodley, but the scene also marked a key moment for her character, Beatrice “Tris” Prior, a young woman who is forced to prove her courage in order to blend in and keep a dangerous secret in a world that’s anything but romantic.

“Divergent,” opening Friday, is based on the first novel in Veronica Roth’s bestselling young adult trilogy, which has sold 17 million copies with a story that posits a dystopian future in which people are strictly sorted into factions based on personality. A test reveals our heroine, Tris, is divergent, meaning she doesn’t fit neatly into any single category — a quality considered dangerous. Tris tries to hide her divergence and joins Dauntless, the faction that values bravery, where her courage and strength are put to the test.

Leading up to its premiere tonight at Park City, Shailene and the cast of White Bird in a Blizzard have been posing for various photo sessions.

W Magazine Best Performances Photoshoot

Posted by Alexa on January 7, 2014 • Filed under Gallery Updates, Photoshoots

I’ve added a striking new photo of Shailene taken for W Magazine to the gallery. The shoot was taken as part of the magazine’s Best Performances issue, which features six different individual covers including Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Cate Blanchett. Hopefully I will be able to bring you scans of Shailene’s feature very soon.

When I saw Titanic, I wasn’t allowed to look when Kate Winslet took her robe off and posed naked for Leonardo DiCaprio. My parents were in the room, and they made me turn my face so that I didn’t see her breasts. We had French doors to our backyard, and I could see the scene reflected in the glass. I remember thinking, Oh, my God—one day I’m going to have those, and it’s so exciting.
