Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller spoke to Ricky Camilleri of HuffPost Teen earlier this week. Woodley and Teller both spoke on the various aspects of the Divergent factions as well as their upcoming film, The Spectacular Now.
Turns out, Shailene Woodley isn’t all that different from the fictional charactersshe plays on the big screen after all — at least, when it comes to the highly anticipated film adaptation “Divergent.”
The actress stopped by HuffPost Live yesterday with co-star Miles Teller (who also plays her love interest in the upcoming movie “The Spectacular Now”) where theydemonstrated the Nerdfighter salute — a nod to John Green, whose wildly popularbook-turned-movie also stars Shailene — and took turns explaining “factions.”
For those who have yet to read “Divergent,” the story is set in a dystopian, futuristic society that’s divided into five factions: abnegation, erudite, dauntless, amity and candor. Every year, 16-year-olds have to decide the faction they will be in for the rest of their lives based on the different virtues each faction represents.
When asked which faction they would place each other according to their real-life personalities, Miles joked that Shailene would put him in the dauntless faction because it’s associated with being fearless and action-seeking.
