Actress Shailene Woodley has become the latest Hollywood actress to go blonde, ditching her brunette locks for a stunning platinum look.
The Divergent star showed off her new style at the Miu Miu show in Paris. We love the darker roots, too!
The 22-year-old has been going progressively lighter with her hair colour since the summer, when she first showed off a golden brown hue at the Met Gala, but this new style is her boldest yet.
Shailene famously cried when she had her her chopped off last August for her role in The Fault in Our Stars. Despite her initial worries though, the actress says she really came around to her shorter hair.
"I love it. It’s so easy," she said in an interview. “Not having hair, the lack of hair, even the weight on your head, reveals so much about your body’s chemistry I cannot even tell you." Deep!
We can imagine it was a big shock going from long wavy locks to a gamine pixie cut, but we think it was definitely a great style move!
What do you think?
It was revealed this afternoon that Naomi Watts has been cast for Divergent’s upcoming sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant.
Naomi will star as Evelyn, the estranged mother of Tris’ boyfriend Four/Tobias.
However, not all fans have reacted well to the casting of Naomi, as many have argued that Naomi looks nothing like her character’s description in the hit book series.
Veronica Roth, author of the novels described Evelyn as having “curly black hair and olive skin” and that her and Tobias, “… also have the same strong jaw, distinct chin, spare upper lip, stick-out ears. Only her eyes are different— instead of blue, they are so dark they look black”.
While that doesn’t sound exactly like Naomi, we still think the actress will be able to pull off the role when filming stars for Insurgent this month.
Watts will be joining an all-star cast which includes, Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and Octavia Spencer.
Suki Waterhouse must be delighted with the news that she has been cast in the Divergent sequel, Insurgent.
The model has tried her hand at acting before, appearing in 2010 TV series Material Girl as well as having a role in the adaptation of Cecilia Ahern’s novel Where Rainbows End called Love, Rosie.
Suki is heading over to the dark side and will play the character, Marlene, who is a member of the Dauntless faction.
We’re sure her lovely boyfriend Bradley Cooper will help her practice her lines in time for the 2015 release date!
Octavia Spencer has been cast in the forthcoming sequel to sci-fi blockbuster Divergent.
The Oscar-winning actress will star opposite Shailene Woodley in the second part of the hit series, Insurgent.
This is yet another big role for the 43-year-old actress, who shot to fame after bagging an Oscar for her amazing performance in 2011 drama The Help.
Octavia will play faction leader Johanna in the sci-fi sequel.
Divergent stars Shailene, Theo James and Kate Winslet will all be taking up their roles again in Insurgent.
Octavia has a hectic schedule ahead of her, starring in seven major movies in the next year.
The star has signed on to a few very exciting roles in forthcoming movies like Get on Up, a biographical drama on soul singer James Brown, and The Great Gilly Hopkins, a film about a foster child who finds a stable home.
She will next be seen in comedy Car Dogs, which is due for release in US theatres later on this year.
Lionsgate are following the trilogy pattern of splitting Divergent‘s final movie installation into two separate movies.
The second installation of the trilogy, Insurgent, is due to be released in 2015, followed by the first part of Allegiant in 2016.
The announcement was made by the vice chairman for Lionsgate, Michael Burns, though it came as no surprise to many.
Sources say the decision derived from the content of Allegiant, “Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies.”
This strategy is familiar to fans of both the Twilight and The Hunger Games trilogies, both of which had their final movie split into two separate instalments.
Divergent actress Shailene Woodley admits to eating clay as part of her beauty regime. The former The Secret Life of the American Teenager star found out about the benefits of clay from a taxi driver and claims it to be “one of the best things you can put in your body”.
Talking to Into The Gloss, the 22-year-old said: “Clay is great for you because your body doesn’t absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. And, this is crazy: it also helps clean heavy metals out of your body.”
However, according to the winner of the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, you need to be very careful about where you get your dirt from. She believes Mountain Rose Herbs is the best source but admits that Bentonite clay is pretty good too.
The American actress also believes that the best way to whiter teeth is to “swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out.”
Might have a go at the teeth thing but not sure about eating clay…
Fans of the Divergent series will be getting very excited as the release date approaches. The movie will hit Irish cinemas on April 4th and stars Shailene Woodley as protagonist Tris and Theo James as the dreamy Four.
But how does author Veronica Roth feel her pride and joy has translated onto the big screen? Well, she took to her Tumblr account and shared her opinions on the movie adaptation of Divergent.
Speaking first about the surreality of seeing her book as a movie, Veronica said: “I packed up a suitcase and flew to LA and bought some Milk Duds and watched the Divergent movie. You know. As one does. (?!!!)”
Veronica went on to think back to her days of writing the book: “I would flash back to this image of myself in pajama pants with gross hair typing away on my computer, and then juxtapose it over the gorgeous shots of the Sears Tower or Navy Pier … it was so ridiculously awesome and surreal I just wanted to laugh and cry all at once.”
In relation to how her characters were presented by Shailene and Theo, Veronica gushed: “Shailene Woodley as Tris and Theo James as Four are everything I hoped for (or maybe more than I dared to hope for).”
So, in a nutshell, Veronica was really pleased with the movie and said: “I loved it. I was completely absorbed by it.”
Yay, this makes us extra excited to see it in April!
The final trailer for the impending movie Divergent was released yesterday evening.
The first instalment of the Divergent trilogy novels by Veronica Roth is due to hit cinemas in Ireland this March and is guaranteed to impress fans of the books.
The movie stars rising actress Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and Zoe Kravitz.
Ellie announced the news on her Instagram account last night, much to the delight of her own fans as well as fans of the Divergent book series.
What’s more, it seems it won’t just be one song Ellie contributes; her voice will actually be present throughout the film.
Writing on Instagram, she said: “Excited for you to hear the new song “Beating Heart” and my wee voice throughout the film :)”.
Ellie isn’t the only big UK star to lend their singing voices to Hollywood movies; Ed Sheeran also recently penned “I See Fire” for the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Divergent is due out this year and will star rising star Shailene Woodley as well as Kate Winslet and Theo James.
