The Top 5 Worst Things to Ever Come Out of the Divergent Cast Members’ Mouths

By  | 

The recent news that Divergent will NOT be returning to the big screen has rocked the fandom. There are plans for a TV version of Ascendant, and then a spin-off television series, but it won’t be the same. From the sounds of it, Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller & co. will not be signing on for the project, so we’re skeptical, to say the least.

Then again, maybe it’s all for the best, considering the cast’s cringe-worthy (and/or d*uchey) comments in past interviews. *mind immediately lands on Ansel’s vom-inducing ELLE magazine interview* Think about it, then you’ll have less chances to read remarks like these:

5. “I was thinking about that today, how I probably think I’m better-looking than the public thinks I am.”Miles Teller, Esquire

Modesty was never his strong suit.



4. “I loved going to [my dad’s] studio. I’d disappear into his darkroom for, like, an hour, looking for all the boobs I could find.”Ansel Elgort on his famous photographer father’s nude snapshots of models, ELLE

Not at all perverted.

3. “No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance. With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either. We have to have a fine balance.”

“My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism. I don’t know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy. And, ‘This girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.’ And it’s just so silly and heartbreaking in a way.”Shailene Woodley on why she doesn’t consider herself a feminist, TIME

Uhh, fairly certain Shai doesn’t know the meaning of feminism, which literally means “the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic EQUALITY to men.”

2. In the words of the editor of the same Esquire piece mentioned above, “You’ve just told [Miles], by way of making conversation that, according to legend, the champagne coupe in your hand is shaped like Marie Antoinette‘s left breast, and he tells you the highball glass is modeled after his c*ck. Then he tells the waitress the same thing.”


1. “LaGuardia [High School] is a wonderful, wonderful place. If you’re like me and you love dancers, you just have to walk up to the eighth floor and you can get one.”—Ansel Elgort, ELLE

As if the young women were simply items to be bought at the mall.

*BONUS* “[Leonardo DiCaprio‘s] probably the world’s most beautiful-looking man, yet he doesn’t think that he’s gorgeous. And to me, he’s just smelly, farty Leo.”Kate Winslet, Vanity Fair
