While there are a lot of stars in Hollywood who have gone to some rather drastic measures for a role in a movie, receiving high raise in the process, what these people sometimes fail to understand is that these decisions could have a big impact on their other projects. Just take the beautiful and talented actress Shailene Woodley for example.
Shailene Woodley starred in the role of Tris in the hit movie Divergent and those of you who are familiar with the movie will know that she had long hair in the film. However, Shailene has since had her hair cut short for another movie project, which meant she would have to wear a wig for the Divergent sequel Insurgent, something which she managed to get around.
Woodley explained, "I talked to the director [Robert Shwentke] because I didn't want to wear a wig. I think wigs look wiggy, especially in an action movie. We're running so much and doing so much, I think, technically, a wig would have looked quite [expletive]. I think it's cool to have a young heroine with short hair."
Meanwhile, her co-star Theo James was full of kind words of praise for Shailene and her short hair, adding, "When I'm looking at Shai on screen, now you get a character progression in a visual way. There's a maturity and a difference between the character here and in the first movie."
As well as starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, the rest of the solid Insurgent cast includes the likes of Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Maggie Q, Naomi Watts, Ray Stevenson, and Suki Waterhouse. Insurgent is directed by Robert Scwentke and will hit the big screen on March 20, 2015.
