Shailene Woodley and her co-star Theo James make their way out of the BBC Radio 1 studio after stopping by to promote Divergent TODAY (March 31) in London, England.

The day before, the duo hugged it outon the red carpet at the film’s premiere at Odeon Leicester Square.

“It was a little wild, actually,” director Neil Burger recently told the L.A. Times about working with such a young cast. “There were the main actors and the supporting actors. There’s half a dozen of them or more, they’re all 20 or 22 years old, but then there was a whole group supporting them too, so we had just dozens of 20-year-old people around, and it was a little bit like herding cats.”

He added, “But it was great because the spirit and the sense of fun on the set and the sense of playfulness along with really good craft, really good acting, was fun and exciting.”

Divergent Movie Review: Is it really worth all the hype?

Theo James and Shailene Woodley star in DivergentThe advent of adolescence is, for many preteens, the first brush with cliques and social cordoning. What J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series intimated was that everyone’s place within the order of things is predestined and, as represented by that infallible sorting hat, inevitable. What Veronica Roth’s Divergent series intuits, and what represents it’s one clear coup in the young-adult franchise sweepstakes, is that there’s only thing that fills pubescent souls with dread more than the possibility of being sorted—whether by hat or through standardized testing—into the wrong “house.” And that’s to be forced to define, or categorize, oneself in time to get college applications mailed out. At least you can rebel against an authority figure’s definition of your character. Being handed the reigns is infinitely more overwhelming.

Jennifer Lawrence: Best Supporting Actress Winner at BAFTAs 2014!

Jennifer Lawrence wins Supporting Actress BAFTA for American Hustle

The 2014 Bafta for best supporting actress has gone to Jennifer Lawrence for her role in American Hustle.

 

Lawrence was unable to attend the ceremony due to filming commitments, but the prize was received on her behalf by the film’s director, David O Russell. He read acceptance speech in which Lawrence thanked her fellow actors, writers and the director himself and celebrated the opportunity to enact “heartbreak, romance, rebirth, music and life”.

She beat the much-fancied Lupita Nyong’o, who was nominated for her role in 12 Years a Slave. The award was presented by Leonardo DiCaprio who said he “was completely blown away” by the talent in the category.

  1. American Hustle
  2. Production year: 2013
  3. Directors: David O. Russell
  4. Cast: Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, Robert De Niro

Emma Watson has finished up college and is back in Hollywood for the thriller Regression

Did anyone really think Emma Watson would stay away from the big screen for long?

Emma Watson is coming back to the big screen in Regression

The ‘Harry Potter’ actress recently announced she was taking a break from Hollywood to finish up her college education, but she has already got her next flick lined up. The Wrap reports that Watson will co-star with Ethan Hawke in the upcoming thriller ‘Regression.’

Written and directed by Alejandro Amenabar (‘The Others’), the movie’s plot details are being kept hush-hush. The ‘Bling Ring’ and ‘This Is the End’ actress drops tantalizing hints that the film will show her in a whole new light.

“I am passionate about Alejandro and his work and am so happy to be collaborating with him,” Emma said. “I’m really excited by the challenge my character presents to me as an actress. I can’t wait to begin.”

Amenabar returned the love fest. “Emma is a beautiful, humane, sensitive and very talented woman, and I feel very fortunate to be working with her. I’m sure that her long-standing stellar career has barely begun,” he said.

The movie hits theaters in 2015, perhaps giving Watson enough time to finish up that English degree at Brown University before production heats up.

Her latest flick, the biblical epic ‘Noah,’ will be released in March.
