The guys of new trilogy-based movie Divergent recently sat down with Seventeen for the April issue (on stands March 11th). In the interview, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Christian Madsen, Jai Courtney and Ben Lloyd-Hughes talk about first dates, love and dealing with girls who play games, finding true happiness in life, getting sloppy seconds on the dance floor, and of course, working on set of their new action-packed film.
We have a couple highlights before – but be sure to pick up the new issue for the full interview!
Would you say that you’re a lot like Four [his character in Divergent]?
Theo James: Definitely. He likes to play outside the rules and is someone who sees through the BS. He has a strong sense of who he is. I like to think I have that in me too.
How would your friends describe you?
Miles Teller: My best friends would say that I’m not a good dancer and get their sloppy seconds. None of that is true. I’ve always been the best dancer and I get the girls first.
Caleb [his character in Divergent] tells Tris [the lead female character] to think about what she wants before they choose a faction. What do you think of that message?
Ansel Elgort: That’s an important quote. Some parents want their kids to become doctors or lawyers, but some kids want to be actors or dancers. You have to think of yourself because otherwise, you may have made them happy but you’re unhappy.
