Final ‘Divergent’ Trailer Premieres on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
The photogenic pair zip-lined on to the set to promote the much-anticipated flick, based on the best-selling young adult novels. Similar in theme to ‘The Hunger Games,’ the movie is set in a dystopian society that places inhabitants in predetermined categories. Being “divergent” is dangerous, as Shailene’s Tris quickly finds out. Theo’s character, Four, works to help Tris triumph over the system.
With their ‘Kimmel’ appearance, Woodley, 22, and James, 29, are just in the beginning stages of a what will be a worldwide promotional tour for the flick. Fortunately, they seem to have a tremendous real-life relationship as well as obvious on-screen chemistry.
Kimmel admitted he was fascinated that Shailene tries to drink only water she’s collected from natural springs. Woodley elaborated for his benefit: “There are a lot of mountains with a lot of water. There are natural springs. There’s this amazing database called findaspring.com, and it kind of lists where all the springs throughout the world are: hot springs, cold springs. It’s really fantastic … You have to be careful about it, though. You could have some danger zones — something funky in the water.”
For his part, when asked what he liked to drink, Theo joked, “Straight vodka.”
‘Divergent’ — which also stars Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd and Miles Teller — hits theaters March 21.
