Sometimes you just have to roll with it.”

Divergent - Kate Winslet

Due to her pregnancy, Winslet was late showing up to the Chicago sets and did not have a chance to properly meet her cast mates. She used this fact to her advantage: “I wanted to break it and say, ‘It’s OK, I’m really fun. I promise.’ But I thought, just for today, I’d let them think that I am a complete bitch.”

Author Veronica Roth is very impressed with Winslet work on the film so far and is excited about what she has brought to her character. Roth had this to say to USA Today: “Kate has gone with a very subtle, even well-meaning villain. She’s not a mustache-twirling Disney type. She brings the menace in a very quiet way.”
