Divergent, the eagerly awaited first film based on Veronica Roth's best-selling novel is finally in theaters.

Shailene Woodley and Theo James shine as Tris and Four, bringing their relationship off the page and onto the screen.

Divergent is set in a dystopian, post-Apocalyptic Chicago. Society is divided into five factions, each representing individual personality traits and serving a purpose within the society: the selfless Abnegation, the smart Erudite, the honest Candor, the peaceful Amity, and the brave Dauntless. 

At 16, each child must take a test to determine into which faction he or she belongs. Beatrice Pryor discovers that she is "divergent." The test can't place her into one faction because she possesses traits of several.

On Choosing Day, she leaves her life in Abnegation for one in Dauntless. There she meets Four and finds herself while learning that Jeanine Matthews, leader of Erudite, has a plan to eliminate her old faction, including her parents.

It's Divergent week! Let's celebrate the release of the post-apocalyptic teen drama by rounding up some of the craziest things Shailene Woodley has said during her many recent interviews.

From sun-tanning her vagina to eating clay, Shailene has a lot of, uh, INTERESTING habits.

I suspect if we DID all live in a destroyed future-Chicago Shailene would either survive way longer than any of us (foraging for food! making her own cheese!) or she'd be the first one killed (sharing her aloha soul with the wrong people sounds dangerous).

Maybe we should have seen this coming - after all, she is Divergent.

Read 13 of her craziest quotes below and see what we mean:

The second I wake up, I scream very loudly

The second I wake up, I scream very loudly [sings to the tune of "Good Morning" from Singin' in the Rain], "Good morning! Good morning!" And then I scream out, "Exciting day! Exciting day!" I feel like it completely sets the mood for the whole day.

Shailene Woodley

1. The second I wake up, I scream very loudly ...

Waking up in the morning is an event.


 I like to give my vagina a little vitamin D,

Except Pocahontas.

Some movies have made me laugh, but I've never thought, 'Wow, if it weren't for that movie, I'd be a different person.' Except Pocahontas.

Shailene Woodley

3. Except Pocahontas.

On movies that changed her life.


So the lipids have to dissolve in fats, which is why oil works in your mouth.

You can do something called ‘oil pulling’ where you swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out. It’s amazing! It really makes your teeth whiter, because the plaque on your teeth is not water soluble, it’s fat-soluble. So the lipids have to dissolve in fats, which is why oil works in your mouth.

Shailene Woodley

4. Oil works in your mouth

On how to whiten your teeth.


 If I wasn't an actress, I'd probably do something with food.

If I wasn't an actress, I'd probably do something with food. Finding seeds, planting seeds, watching them grow, harvesting the fruits, cooking the fruits, eating them, seeing how my body reacts, and even digesting.

Shailene Woodley

5. If I wasn't an actress, I'd probably do something with food.

On her life if she wasn't acting.

6. Humbled and amazed by ...

I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today.

Teenagers are so smart. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today.

Shailene Woodley

7. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today.

On getting dumber with age.


I am seeing your spirit, and I am giving you mine.

The world Aloha, if you break it down, means breath and spirit, so when Hawaiians say Aloha, they are not only saying hello or goodbye. They are saying, 'I am seeing your spirit, and I am giving you mine.'

Shailene Woodley

8. I am seeing your spirit, and I am giving you mine.

On the word 'Aloha'.


Most people have never heard of clay, or spring water, or chlorophyll

Most people have never heard of clay, or spring water, or chlorophyll, which shocks me because that's what I revolve my life around, but then it shocks them that I know nothing about a big designer, or director, or producer.

On how she might secretly be a plant.

I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants.

On where to get the best cheese.

Divergent fans, we hope you're sitting down. The first official trailer for the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling young adult novel is here!

Starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, Divergent is set in a dystopian futuristic Chicago, where the citizens are divided into distinct factions.

Woodley's Beatrice "Tris" Prior is about to take the crucial aptitude / personality test that all 16-year-olds must to find out where they belong.

Watch the full-length preview for the much-anticipated movie below:

As you might expect, even if you're among the uninitiated, Tris' results make her ... divergent. In other words, she just doesn't fit into any society.

"The only way society can survive is for each of you to claim your rightful place," Kate Winslet, who plays a faction leader, tells the divided groups.

Tris, therefore, must hide who she is as she seeks to learn what makes herself and others deemed divergent so dangerous, before it's too late.

The future belongs to those who know where they belong.

Still confused over what the heck was going on with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight? We don't blame you.

But take a couple moments below to focus less on Twerking and more on freaking... out, that is, over the next teen-based blockbuster.

The first trailer for Divergent premiered at the VMAs, with fans of the best-selling novel getting their first look at Shailene Woodley in action as Tris. We also see Kate Winslet as the villainous Jeanine Matthews, along with Theo James coming to Tris' rescue as Four.

The film, which opens March 21, imagines a future world in which citizens are divided into factions based on their abilities. But what happens when one young lady is different? When she is Divergent from the rest?

Perhaps I wasn't hip to the various colors available in the gray spectrum before, but after checking out this Divergent photo, my eyes have been opened to the possibilities. 

Divergent "Shades of Gray" Photo

If you've read Veronica Roth's book, then you know that this photo is likely from the earliest parts in the film. Perhaps the choosing ceremony? Not sure when else there would be so much Abnegation gray in one place.

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort play the brother and sister duo, Beatrice and Caleb Prior in the film.

We don't have too much longer to wait for the latest young adult dystopian novel adaptation as Divergent opens in theaters on March 21st of next year.

Roth will appear on the panel along with the film's director, Neil Burger, and quite a few cast members including Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lamb, Ben Lloyd-Hugher, Christian Madsen, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, and Miles Teller.
