First look at Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews plus interview on the ‘DIVERGENT’ set!

We haven’t had much news from Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews. USA Today has the first interview with Kate on the set of Divergent.

Below is the very first look at Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews.

20130716-215713.jpg

CHICAGO — As Kate Winslet descends the stairs in the Hall of Choosing during a scene from the action-adventure tale Divergent, she carries a slim briefcase in front of her, which has multiple uses.

Given that she’s wearing a sharp, lab-coat-inspired executive suit, the accessory further projects the image of a true leader as Winslet’s character serenely inspects the assembled masses.

The interview with Kate Winslet about
Jeanine Matthews starts here:

As soon as director Neil Burger yells “cut!,” Winslet employs the container for another use — as a fan on the stifling set of Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist, which has broken air conditioners. As she flaps, she reveals that the case also disguises a baby bump — she announced in early June that she’s having her third child, the first with husband Ned Rocknroll.

“I’m holding up fine. I’m pregnant, but it’s not at the point where it becomes impossible,” says Winslet, 37, relaxing at a conference table with bags of nearly melted ice on her feet. “Sometimes you just have to roll with it.”

“That’s the whole point of Jeanine,” Winslet says. “She walks down the corridor and sort of just leaves this vapor trail. I knew I had to bring that intimidation.”

“I’m no idiot. The idea went through my head that I have never played a baddie before,” she says. “I was almost kind of surprised.”

If you don’t know much about Jeanine of Erudite you can learn more about her here:

Jeanine is the protector of a futuristic dystopian society based in Chicago, in which the population is divided into five factions. As the leader of the Erudite, or intelligent group, Jeanine is also the story’s antagonist.

Winslet’s character adopts a positively chilly demeanor when she meets hero Tris Prior (The Descendants’ Shailene Woodley) and her family in a scene depicting the day Tris will choose her faction.

The role gives the Oscar winner (best actress for 2008’s The Reader) the opportunity to play her first screen villain.

More of Kate talking about playing Jeanine in Divergent:

The pregnancy helped maintain the intimidation factor, since Winslet came into the shoot late. She used that distance from her co-stars to her advantage by keeping herself slightly aloof initially.

“I wanted to break it and say, ‘It’s OK, I’m really fun. I promise.’ ” she says. “But I thought, just for today, I’d let them think that I am a complete bitch.”

Director Neil Burger also talks Kate Winslet as Jeanine:

Burger says Winslet is game for every aspect of the shoot, even volunteering to perform a small fall in her character’s fight scene. (He used a stunt double.) Wardrobe changes were needed to accommodate the pregnancy, and Winslet’s time on set is closely managed.

“Obviously, we have to be careful, and the way we shoot her changes things,” Burger says. “But there’s a way to do it so we stay off the fact she is pregnant.”

Even the die-hard fans of the series, who have nitpicked about things such as Woodley’s hair color, have been “exploding with joy” with the news of Winslet’s casting, Roth says. Watching from the monitor, Roth feels Winslet even exceeds the hype.

“Kate has gone with a very subtle, even well-meaning villain. She’s not a mustache-twirling Disney type,” she says. “She brings the menace in a very quiet way.”

I don’t know about you, but I am loving the first look at Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews!

MTV behind the scenes video featuring interviews with Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Veronica Roth, Zoe Kravitz & Miles Teller!

Yesterday MTV aired a behind the scenes look of their Divergent video. Josh Horowitz hosted the interviews.

SHA

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE INTERVIEWS WITH SHAILENE WOODLEY, THEO JAMES, VERONICA ROTH AND ZOE KRAVITZ

I transcribed the video so that you can read along with what the actors are saying:

Theo James on the Divergent world: Sure the world is 60 years in the future. we assume there was some kind of pivotal war. as a result they had to adapt and create this new faction system.

Shailene Woodley on Tris: The interesting thing about Tris is that she’s not a badass, she’s not a superhero, she’s not an action star. and i think that there is something really refreshing about bringing a very normal adolescent to life in a way where she has to rise to the occasion and find her brave heart and be really courageous in situations she doesn’t necessarily want to be.

Miles Teller on Peter: What I like most about Peter is his whole spirit. I think he’s got great fashion sense. and honestly I really dig my hair. I think peter has got really cool hair.

Zoe Kravitz on Christina: Christina comes from candor. She transfers herself over to Dauntless. so her and Tris meet and in this time where they both left their factions and they’re kind of starting this new adventure together and they find comfort in each other. they end of being besties

Theo James on Four: I think when you find Four he is extremely closed and damaged and learned to exist in this world the best way he can. he’s chosen not to be a leader.has been asked several times, he chooses to take a step back and as things change people start to die and things go wrong then he realizes that something needs to be done and some things need to be done.

Shailenne Woodley and Theo James on their relationship and chemistry:

Shailene: I really love Theo. He’s very pure. Speaking of, here he is!

Theo: The chemistry is very pivotal but it also needs to be natural and real and i think that is something we stumbled upon quit easily

Veronica Roth: The chemistry between them is also really strong so that was also really important.

V Roth on differences from book to movie: What they’ve done is sort of change the order a little bit. I feel that they keep all of the most pivotal scenes and maybe wove them together in a different way so I’ve been pretty satisfied with what they’ve done so far.

What do you guys think? Wasn’t this a great behind the scenes looks from MTV?!
