Theo James and Shailene Woodley are taking their last opportunity as the Allegiant couple to take their onscreen romance to a new level. And to no one’s surprise, their legendary chemistry didn’t fail the Divergent fans.
Just a week shy of the film’s release, Theo James and Shailene Woodley are making last pushes to promote the film. This also meant that they had more opportunities with each other to make their precious moments together count before they go their separate ways.
One of those moments is when they got completely naked to shoot the much-anticipated shower scene in Allegiant. The fans got a glimpse of this in the trailer with water droplets running down their bodies.
Check out their steamy scenes below!
For those who are not so familiar with the plot of Allegiant, Entertainment Tonight summed it up pretty well for us.
“Beatrice Prior (Woodley) and Tobias Eaton (James) get past the wall enclosing Chicago and venture into the world outside, which they quickly learn is more dangerous than ever before. The duo must determine who they can trust as a ruthless battle erupts in their new environment, which threatens all of humanity.”
As the stakes get higher in the dystopian Chicago, Beatrice and Tobias must bond together to fight for the good of mankind. This level of acting must mean that Shailene and Theo revealed very vulnerable and personal parts of themselves to each other.
In fact, Theo James went as far to reveal that “we know most of each other’s darkest secrets,” according to PopSugar.
When he was asked to talk about his experience shooting the Divergent series, he mentioned that his opportunity to perform alongside Shailene helped him grow up.
“As your own person goes through the different changes of your life, they end up informing the character you play and the mistakes you’ve made or the lessons you’ve learned,” Theo said according to Essential Homme. “I think it was three years ago when I started Divergent. I definitely feel like a different person from that time, so I think Four must change too.”
The 24-year-old actress also used this opportunity to reflect, reassess, and move on from Allegiant.
“Shailene Woodley is living life blissfully possession-free,” according to In Style. “The 24-year-old actress tells us how, after a three-week-long trip to India, she returned to the States with nothing more than “a pair of leggings, a pair of sweats, one long-sleeve shirt, and this shawl.”
As another way of getting the 31-year-old actor off her mind, Shailene has been throwing herself into American politics. She has been an avoid supporter of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, and she has been using her Twitter feed as a platform to promote him.
But that doesn’t mean that the actress is shunning Hollywood. She signed to become a part of a new HBO series called Big Little Lies, which also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Reese Witherspoon, and Nicole Kidman.
As for Theo, having been released from Allegiant commitments, he is probably pondering his relationship status with Ruth Kearney. He has faced numerous engagement rumors in the past. Seeing how they have been together for a long time, those rumors may actually come to fruition.
However, he just seems like the kind of guy who prefers to proceed at a slower rate. While he has been dating Ruth for years now, he doesn’t seem to be in a rush to get into serious commitments.
“The meaning of romance is spontaneity,” the actor said according to MTV. ” I’m not great with gifts, but I’m good at random fun stuff, like taking trips and being able to say ‘f–k it’ and go somewhere for a weekend.”
Do you think Theo and Shailene will miss each other when Allegiant is said and done?
