Kate Winslet Kind Of Wishes She Hadn’t Been Drawn Like One Of Jack’s French Girls In “Titanic”

“I don’t sign that [picture]. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that? … People ask me to sign that [picture] a lot … It’s still haunting me. It’s quite funny really. There’s a photo of it as well that someone has lifted from a still of the film, and that photo gets passed around too. I’m like ’No! I didn’t mean for it to be a photograph that I would end up seeing still 17 years later.’”

At the “Divergent” premiere, Kate Winslet was asked about that infamous nude sketch she posed for in “Titanic.” Apparently, it’s not exactly her favorite memory. The picture seems kind of like a quaint reminder of life before cell phone leaks, when the only nudie pics celebrities had to worry about are the ones they made for movies. At least hers is a drawing instead of the real deal! [NYMag.com]

The Soapbox: “Divergent” Is A Bible-Thumping Disaster

divergent soapbox

Spoilers ahead!

“Divergent,” which opens today, has been hailed as either the next “Hunger Games” or as a massive “Hunger Games” ripoff. It is both, but where it leaves its source material (“Harry Potter” included) is in the religious proselytizing throughout. Teenagers are born again in all YA fiction, in a sense. But in the Divergent books it is a specifically Christian moral imposition and major reason the series fails. Keep reading »

Shailene Woodley: “How Do We Expect Men To Respect Women If Women Don’t Respect Women?”

“Oftentimes in films, even if you do have a really strong woman, there’s jealousy and envy among her sisters. So you’ll have this really empowered leader, who’s a chick, and then she has some sort of envious relationship with another woman in the movie. And in ["Divergent"], there’s no envy and no jealousy–no ridiculous girl-fights. It’s such an important message to send out there in this age of feminism because, yes, men need to respect women, and women need to be the leads of films, but at the same time, how do we expect men to respect women if women don’t respect women? A big theme in my life is sisterhood, and I think that this movie is a really great representation of that–of being there and supporting one-another without the malicious attacks that so often come in movies and media. So many women feel so much anger towards other women.”

“Divergent” star Shailene Woodley is doing nothing to abate my raging crush on her. A lot of actresses don’t even give very complete answers when they are asked about women’s representation in film and feminism, but Shai  —that’s what I’d call her if we were friends, which we are in my head— just brings it up herself and says something really intelligent about it. I haven’t read the Divergent books, but knowing that it’s got a feminist bent kind makes me want to read them now. Between “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games,” we really are in a golden age of positive role models in films for teens! [The Daily Beast] [Image via Getty]

Shailene Woodley Thinks “Twilight” Sends A “Toxic” Message To Teens

“Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”

Our love for Shailene Woodley just grows and grows. In a new interview with Teen Vogue, the actress shares her thoughts on Stephenie Meyers’ wildly successful Twilight series and nails what is so problematic about the romance between Bella and Edward. Shailene stars in the upcoming “Divergent” films, which are based on another young adult novel series, only instead of her character Tris being completely obsessed with a dude (though she does have a hot romance of her own), she’s focused on, you know, overthrowing an oppressive totalitarian regime. Veronica Roth’s Divergent books are only slightly better written than the Twilight series, but plot wise, they are significantly more bad ass and inspiring. I’m psyched to see Shailene and the rest of the cast — including Kate Winslet and Julianne Moore! — bring the story to life on the big screen. [Teen Vogue]

Swoon! Things Gets Physical Between Tris And Four In New “Divergent” Clip

Swoon! Things Gets Physical In New "Divergent" Clip
Hey, "What's your tattoo?" is totally my line...

While I think The Hunger Games is a better written series with a stronger plot, the pervy side of me (i.e. 98.7 percent of me) prefers the thematically similar Divergent series simply because it is sexier. I haven’t finished all of book two, Insurgentor started book three, Allegiant, but I’m pretty sure there’s eventually going to be sexual intercourse between the book’s protagonist, Tris, and her boyfriend, Four, and I am excited about it. I am also excited about the movie adaptation, hitting theaters on March 31, because, as this new clip suggests, things are gonna get steamy. Theo James, who plays Four (and is perhaps most memorable to readers as Mr. Pamuk on “Downton Abbey”), has got an impressively muscular canvas for those faction tattoos. Tris approves and so do I.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Tris From Divergent

Halloween Inspiration Board: Tris From Divergent

The Hunger Games is sooooooo last year, you guys. This year’s dystopian young adult series that older folks are late to the party on is Divergent by Veronica Roth. The books — there are two out, with a third hitting shelves in a few weeks — are being made into a movie series starring Shailene Woodley as Tris, the teenager born into the Abnegation faction (known for their selflessness) who decides to transfer to Dauntless (known for their bravery). Dressing up as Tris for Halloween simply requires a tough-meets-sexy all black wardrobe (a nice change from Abnegation’s dull grey style), comfy shoes (for jumping from trains, natch), and a few key fake tattoos — the three ravens on the collar bone representing Tris’ mother, father and brother, as well as the symbols for Abnegation and Dauntless on the shoulder blades. Get the details on the costume above, after the jump! Keep reading »
