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.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
