At this point, we’re going to have seen the entire film of Divergent before it even makes it to theatres with the number of “clips” they’ve been releasing prior to its release. It looks great, I have to admit – and it certainly helps that Ellie Goulding is featured strongly through an otherwise still pretty great soundtrack (music sets the mood, okay?!), too.
In the first clip, we get to see a bit of Kate Winslet as Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews, and it’s kinda bugging me out. It’s so odd to see her play a role like this, but somehow it works. I’m also coming around to Shailene Woodley in general, which is helpful considering she’s the star of this franchise, I suppose…
The second clip shows us some interaction with Tris and Four, which no doubt will be spun into some incredible love story that overtakes the entire message of the series, which is really more about Tris’ bravery and this fucked up world they live in, but you know how movies go.
I’m looking forward to seeing the full thing, I must admit. It’ll be out on March 21.
Kate Winslet is a beautiful goddess who can do no wrong (yes, that’s sarcasm), but her pedestal fell a few notches this week when she began offering thoughts on – of all god-forsaken topics – Miley Cyrus. You see, Kate has a young daughter of her own, so seeing stars like Miley go off the deep end is concerning to her as a mother, and she wonders what Miley’s fate will be.
“You hear horror stories where you think, ‘God, who’s looking after these people and why does it seem like they’re losing their way?’
“I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus , and I said to my daughter the other day, ‘I’m this close to opening my mouth about what’s going on with that girl’.
“Who is actually saying, ‘Stop for a second. What do you want, who are you?’ I’ve just been very lucky that I’ve always been quite comfortable with who I am.”
Oh dear, that sounded a bit la-di-da, didn’t it? That’s great that you were always comfortable with yourself, Kate (though I hardly think that’s the case since the Hollywood pressure to lose weight certainly worked on her), but that doesn’t mean that having to take a journey to figure that out makes you in some way defective or less-than. That’s not my defending Miley or anything, either – I just think in general, we’ve all got our own paths to take, and adolescence/young adulthood is awkward as hell… and different for everyone.That being said, I still love me some Kate Winslet… just not to fond of this fuckery.
Kate Winslet was already a parent to 13-year-old daughter Mia and 9-year-old son Joe before she hooked up with Ned Rocknroll and they decided to make shit legit and get married. Then she ended up pregnant and just last week gave birth to their son, Bear. Turns out, she wasn’t really planning on the new baby. Oops!
“It’s been very busy, but thankfully I’ve had some time to rest. I haven’t been pregnant in 10 years. My daughter is turning 13, and my son will be 10.
“It’s funny – I really was at a point where I was certain I wasn’t having any more kids. Life is very strange that way, isn’t it?”
Now, don’t get your panties in a twist, guys – I’m not saying Kate Winslet doesn’t love her son or want him, just that it was probably a shocker when that EPT test turned blue or got a cross or whatever the hell happens with pregnancy tests (not my forte). However, I have to wonder why some women don’t just… you know… take birth control? Use preventative methods? It’s nearly 2014, ladies. Keep up.
Also, I know women do it all the time, but I cannot imagine having my youngest be ten years old and then thinking, “Huh, this would be fun to start ALL OVER AGAIN!” Hell to the no.
