Shailene Woodley defends her Divergent Character: Tris Prior

Entertainment Weekly posted this little comment from Shailene Woodley when the comparison between her Divergent character, Tris Prior, and The Hunger Games’ character, Katniss Everdeen.  Not that we don’t love The Hunger Games, but just because both movies are built around a dystopic future doesn’t mean that the characters share the same traits.

divergent-knife-throwing“What I like about Tris is that she isn’t perfect,” she said. “She’s not a superhero – she’s not Katniss. She doesn’t know how to shoot a bow and arrow, she’s not a badass by nature.”

She also admits that her agents were not in favor of her taking the role. Explaining, “My agents were like, ‘Are you f**king crazy?’But I said if this movie is successful, things will change and I don’t want that.”
