Shailene Woodley talks about ‘Divergent,’ growing up as an actress

< Previous Page

"She’s killing people, but my character’s killing people, too. If the story was told from Jeanine’s point of view, I would be the antagonist, and she would be the hero. I think it’s an interesting way of showing in a young-adult film that one isn’t necessarily better or worse than the other. It’s just differing opinions, like the Democrats and Republicans are in this country right now."

One thing the actress isn’t worried about is "Divergent" getting too successful and she becoming too recognizable.

"I guess at the end of the day, I can shave my head, tattoo it and walk around and nobody would ever know."

When the interview is over, Woodley gives me another hug because that’s who she is.
