How Shailene Woodley Got in Shape for “Insurgent”



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.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
