How Shailene Woodley Got in Shape for “Insurgent”

By  | 

Shailene Woodley doesn’t just look like she can kick some ass in the trailer for her new film “The Divergent Series: Insurgent,” she really can.

HipHollywood sat down with her to talk about returning to her role as Tris and what she did to get in the best shape of her life.  “For this movie we started a push-up club,” she explained. “We stopped drinking coffee so when we got tired we’d pump out push-ups and by the end we were doing like 150 a day. It was really fun.”

“I love athleticism and working out,” she continued,  “So any opportunity to do that plus building towards this is really exciting.”

And the 23-year old was also excited about cutting her hair to give her character an even stronger look. “My hair was short from a previous film I had done, and in the book, Insurgent, Tris cuts her hair to a bob, so I went the director and I said my hair is already short what if we went really short and brought a sort of strength that comes with short hair and not hiding behind anything and really sorta having your assets out, and he thought it was a great idea.”

We agree! Check out Insurgent when it hits theaters March 20th, and be sure to visit tomorrow for our sit down with Woodley’s co-star, Theo James.
