Video: New Footage of Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews

Entertainment Tonight released another behind-the-scenes video which features some new footage of Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews.  Personally, I’m not sure how one could watch this and NOT agree that Winslet is PERFECT for the role, right??

Kate Winslet Admits She Had No Hesitation In Accepting Her Role In Divergent

Kate Winslet recently talked with MTV about accepting the role of Jeanine Matthews in Divergent, even admitting  she’s scored some cool points with her kids!

“I didn’t have any hesitation at all,” she said of her role in what could be a three-part series. “It was such a great script. It’s a fantastic book.”

“My daughter is going to be 13, and my son is almost 10, and they’re getting to that age where this is the type of literature they’re going to be reading very soon,” she explained. “In fact, my daughter, two days ago, came home from school and went, ‘Mom! You’re never going to believe it. Rufus came up to me at school and said, ‘Is your mom really in ‘Divergent’? Is there going to be a premiere? Can you get me a ticket?’ ‘ My daughter suddenly [had a] new-found respect. ‘My mum is actually really cool.’ I’m just going to go with that. I did it because I wanted my kids to think I was cool.”


Miles Teller Discusses Landing the Role of Peter with Vulture

In a recent interview with Vulture, Miles Teller reveals he originally auditioned to play Four in Divergent, and discusses how he ultimately ended up portraying Peter–see excerpt below.


So the Divergent trailer premiered last night, too. I think I see Peter kicking Tris?
Yeah. That’s my knee. The trailer could have used some more Peter.

They did bring you all the way out here. Are you at all disappointed you’re playing Peter as opposed to the heartthrob, Four? And did you audition for Four?
Well, Theo [James, who plays Four] is very tan. [Mocks sadness.] He’s always going to be tanner than me. No, I auditioned for Four originally and maybe, yeah, that would have been cool to do. But it’s nice to play against type. I think I play usually very likable characters, and so it was refreshing to be on set and not have to make people laugh. It was just like, Get in shape and pick on Shailene. That’s really all I do in that whole movie, just pick on her.

How did you go from maybe playing Four to playing Peter?
I auditioned for Four and then they said I wasn’t going to go further. I said okay. And then the producers had seen Spectacular Now — this was like months after I auditioned, maybe a year later. So they had seen Spectacular Now and they said, “There’s this part Eric maybe you could play.” I said, “I don’t know” — because [as Eric] I’m supposed to be intimidating to Theo. I don’t know if that works. Plus I think Eric would be a little older than me. So then they said, “What about Peter?” And then Shailene shot me a text message saying, “Please come do this movie with me.” It seemed like a good idea: Kate Winslet, the director of Limitless

Tony Goldwyn Discusses the Prior Family Chemistry with Hollywood Crush

Hollywood Crush recently sat down with Tony Goldwyn who discussed the great chemistry that he and his cast-mates had on set–in particular his on-screen family!


“We had a wonderful scene that I participated in which was the family together the night before the choosing ceremony,” he said. “It was very good casting of the four of us, Shailene and Ashley [Judd] and Ansel [Elgort], the family, the Priors. We just had this great chemistry together and really felt like a family [living in] the world that Neil [Burger, director] created visually of the Abnegation. We had these two really wonderful days shooting these two scenes, and I’m really excited to see how those turn out.”
