Shailene Woodley to cut her hair for ‘The Fault in our Stars’

Whoa! I love when actors are dedicated to a role and are willing to make sacrifices for it, but maybe it’s because I’ve been trying to grow my own hair out for three years or the famous “Bella wig-gate” of ‘Eclipse’ after Kristen Stewart chopped her hair for the role of Joan Jett in the ‘Runaways’, that the fact of Shailene chopping her hair off scares me just a little! The length is supposedly to be determined but in the book, Hazel’s hair is pretty short from what I remember! faultinourstarsGranted, In Insurgent (spoiler!), Tris DOES cut her hair and we don’t know when filming for that will begin, lets just cross our fingers for NO WIGS!! Thanks to Divergent Faction for bringing us this vital information!

Picture: New Still from the Spectacular Now!

The Spectacular Now opens next month starring Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, In this new still from their official Tumblr page, we get a glimpse of Miles playing Sutter Keely! I love this still, While I wasn’t a HUGE fan of the book, I think that Miles and Shailene are really going to bring these characters to life!

Shailene Woodley’s first ‘sex scene’ in ‘Spectacular Now’ is her favourite scene

specnowWoodley revealed during an interview on The View that she had no issues with  filming the scene, despite it being the first sex scene of her career. She praised co-star Miles Teller, and the realism of the scene.

She explained: “It’s my  favorite scene in the whole movie because it is so real. The audience does feel  uncomfortable watching it, because it almost feels like you’re invading  somebody’s privacy.

“There’s not fancy music playing and there’s not any  exaggeration of what it’s like to be intimate with somebody for possibly the  first time. It’s also just a minute-long shot of us making love.”

I am looking forward to seeing this movie. I appreciate that they tried to make something “real” I have read Shailene say this movie is “the most authentic coming-of-age movie that we’ve had in maybe 20 years” and THAT is exciting!

SDCC Recap- TrisandFour head’s to Comic Con!

I think I am still in a post SDCC hang over! To say that last week covering ‘Divergent’ at Comic Con is most def an understatement! You have seen most of our coverage from the event’s but I wanted to jot down just a few of my personal experiences!

Thursday July 18th started out our day of Divergent SDCC coverage! I got up early to go get my badge and got in my first line of the week- Starbucks!

After I got my caffeine intake, our blogger Mandy and I were off to the Hard Rock Hotel to do our 1:1’s with some of the Divergent cast! If you missed the interview, You can check it out HERE

We loved getting to meet some of the cast! As we were heading back to the Elevator, Shailene and Theo walked past us on their way to a different interview and that was my first glimpse of Theo. Wow.

After the 1:1, we headed back over to our hotel to upload video and post pictures before the press conference. It took 6 hours to load that one clip to youtube. Good Grief. We wanted a good spot for the press conference so we showed up a bit early and relaxed. We ended up getting front row and were able to get some awesome pictures from the press conference! To see the HQ pictures click HERE and HERE! Some of my highlights from the press conference were hearing what Shailene and Theo’s favorite scene’s to films were (Ferris Wheel for Shai & Four choking Tris and snapping out of the simulation for Theo) Theo’s fear being “hummus” and it sounding A LOT like he said something ELSE, and really just sitting there taking it all in! tumblr_mq5m7kvjy51rc7avoo1_500After the Press Conference, We jolted out and took a beeline for Hall H to try and catch the Divergent Panel and see the footage but the line was too long and we didn’t make it in. I retired to my hotel room to rest and update the site before the Summit Celebration that night!

Around 8:15 after changing shoes 4 times I headed out to ‘207’ at the Hard Rock Hotel where the Summit Celebration was to be held. The Hard Rock is right in the middle of San Diego’s iconic ‘Gaslamp’ District and it was alive with people. At the party, I got a chance to chat and meet pretty much everyone from the Cast as well as Veronica Roth.  My night was made when Theo James busted out into a round to show off some awesome dance moves. Click HERE for that video! The conclusion I came to after being at that Party, was that we have an awesome down to earth cast. Not once did I see a cast member go hide in a VIP area. Shailene esp was having Fun and Dancing and just letting loose. I hope they keep this as the film’s progress! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy of the night:

Here is a sample of some of the stuff you have to look forward to!
