Insurgent stars Theo James and Shailene Woodley are certainly enjoying doing press for the sequel to their Divergent series. During one particular press day, the film’s heartthrob, Theo James, sat down with multiple outlets and morning programs to dish on what it was like to film the action sequel. “My rump is insured,” said James.

There was plenty of butt talk to go around, as his co-star Shailene Woodley explained the extent of the stunts she can participate in. “I do as many as insurance will allow; there comes a line that they draw. This movie seemed to be pretty clear when it came to bruises and injuries.”
As for preparing for those love scenes? James said that alcohol does help a bit, but this scene wasn’t too bad to shoot.
“Sometimes booze helps if it’s really hard-core. With this, it’s OK, because at the end of the day it’s going to be PG-13. Sometimes the most awkward thing is [when] you’re shooting and you’re doing something, and then something has to be tweaked, so you can’t move, but you’re right there. So you’re like, ‘What’s up?’ And you’re completely naked, covered in sweat.”
Since the two co-stars have been together on this journey for a while now, E!’s correspondent wanted to know from Theo how he has seen his co-star, Shailene, grow over the period of time that he’s worked with her.

Of course, E! didn’t quite get the answer they were expecting at first. Theo jokingly named her rack as one of the things that grew over time. Then he grew serious and admitted that she has changed a lot.
Of Shailene, James said that she “has changed a lot, in a good way.”
“When I very first met her, I was kind of newbie. She had just come from doing Spectacular Now. I feel like she has really grown into a woman since then, and it’s not actually that long of a period of time. It’s a couple of years, even less.”
Are you excited for Insurgent?
