'Divergent' Star Shailene Woodley Wants 'No Feminine Actors' For 'Four' Role.

Can't embed the video so watch it here.

"Dude, I want to find him. We have been doing some tests. We've been doing some auditions," Woodley said. "We'll see what happens. As of now, we have been scoping out the land. There are a few in particular — two guys — that I think are really great."

Though Woodley didn't name names, she was specific about what traits a would-be Four should possess.

"The thing about Four is that he has to be a man. No feminine actors, please," she said. "You cannot walk in that room in pretty little boots and pretend you're a man. I'm sorry. You need to walk in there, and you need to not have muscles that look good and not actually work. There have been a few guys that have this power about them. It's a natural masculine power that some people have and some people don't. There's nothing good or bad or wrong or right about it. This character needs to be extremely masculine, and his eyes need to scream vulnerability and sensitivity. It's really hard to find in a dude, especially a dude who can act."

The 21-year-old added that the screen-testing process has been less about the particular scenes and more about having that certain something with the men reading for Four.

"It's more just the chemistry between the two of us and seeing if we do have that chemistry or can work on that chemistry — seeing if our back-and-forth dialogue makes any sense with each other," she explained. "There's a lot of standards that have to be met."

As to how she's preparing for what will likely be a demanding role (for example, in more than one scene we see Tris jump onto a moving train), it seems Woodley is preparing more mentally rather than physically.

"I think that a big thing is just pretending that I live in that world. It's a world that's so different from today, but not really," she said. "Thinking of the dystopian world and living in different factions and not being allowed to express your multiple personalities. Being constricted to one thing is going to be the challenge."

Did you see her last interview? She talked about how mind control and putting tracking chips on infant is a current event.

LMAO I know she means "the multiple facets of your personality" but oh God she needs a lesson in eloquence.

This book had potential but ended up just being complete and utter crap
value_of_truth 22nd-Jan-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
and of course the drivel she's spouting is just as crap
squirrels_oh_no 22nd-Jan-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
It sounds like she listened to Veron1ca Roth a little too long, because it sounds similar to stuff the author might say, LOL.

And someone pointed out the other day that Shailene Woodley and the author could be sisters.

It was written in month, maybe less. So, that's why it reads like that.

JFC. Young actresses are so fucking stupid.

They make me want to erase 'dude' from my vocabulary as well.
superhetoric 22nd-Jan-2013 10:00 pm (UTC)
young actors, on the other hand? totally brilliant. all the time. everything they say is amazing. good job, gender sleuth.
emerald_soul 22nd-Jan-2013 11:05 pm (UTC)

maryjanewatson 22nd-Jan-2013 08:22 pm (UTC)
ontd hates her so much for no reason (not counting what she said now, 'cause it was bullshit), it's ridiculous.
slushpuppy8910 22nd-Jan-2013 08:28 pm (UTC)
the last post on her was similarly full of hate as well

don't see why tbh. as you say, it's ridiculous
hearthecity 22nd-Jan-2013 08:30 pm (UTC)
she sounds like an idiot tho. When you know nothing of someone and they sound like an idiot what are you supposed to think?
pineandapple 22nd-Jan-2013 08:19 pm (UTC)

givethesignal 22nd-Jan-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
I get that being all "hew??? waht????" on a post is annoying af but this post needs some details tbh, sry. What movie is this? what is Four? why is anybody meant to care about this?

anaskew 22nd-Jan-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)

funkybaby 22nd-Jan-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
i wish Charlie Hunnam wasn't too old to play this role. omg that would've been amazing.
shadowpiranha 22nd-Jan-2013 08:26 pm (UTC)
Holy shit I would legit buy ten tickets for that movie and shut her out of my mind if he was Four.
