You can watch the full interview below thanks to @DivergentLife
Also, thanks to the lovely Sabrina on our Sister Site, @DivergentsUK, for transcribing the interview:
So here’s your round up! (the order is the same order questions were asked during the chat)
On musical talents: Theo and Miles “jammed out whilst in Chicago” back stage together! Totally showing off how well they know each other, Miles continued by saying Theo plays the guitar and sings and then Theo comes back by pointing out how Miles can play the guitar sing and play the drums, or more specifically, the jimbays.
Miles uses wikipedia and google to find out more on his costars? Yep, that’s right.
“You need to find out about them. I’ll google like my girlfriend. Anything significant that happened in there lives will be on the internet.”
On the Divergent teaser: Jumping in straight away, Miles commented: “Where’s Peter? There needs to me more Peter”
Character vibes: Peter as a character has a “lurking” and “lingering” vibe on set…an “uncomfotrable” vibe. The Four vibe? “Friendly and sexually aggressive” which is “very strong in the eyes and”…”in the crotch”
“Four is a powerful figure in literature and physical form” – Miles Teller
About the fandom: Constant discovery and Comic-con was the first sight of how massive the fandom is. Theo went on to say how the books are yet to be finished so this could lead to an even greater unexpected audience.
Predictions that happen during Allegiant:
Theo comments: “Four dies and is haunting but in a sexy way“
Miles comments: “Once the Divergent world ends, it becomes Peter’s world” and Peter will lock the door so that this “sexy ghost” doesn’t enter. It will be called “Petevergent“
First impressions, where/how did they meet:
Miles told Josh that he thought Theo was American, not knowing that he is in fact from the UK.
Theo told a little anecdote, which is obviously fake but thoroughly enjoyable, about they’re first encounter:
“We met mid push-up. We were kinda doing like 600 push ups and then we ended up locking eyes. Then finishing the whole set to each others beat. And then we got up and did a tough manly bear hug, no words…and then we saw each other last night.”
On Shailene Woodley: They both agree that she is very strong as an individual person and a strong sense of who the characters are and what they should be like.
Theo and Shailene’s first kiss: Miles prompted to get Theo to talk about the first kiss they shot on the train. Theo “went at it hard” and “thought that that’s how she’d want it.” Ahaha, loving Miles’s side comment: “do you ever go at anything soft? Not when you’re Four.” Theo later added how Peter is placed behind them making hissing noises that added to the tension and sexuality.
“Peter’s a little creep.” – Miles Teller
Miles on Fantastic Four: He’d love to be a part of it, it’s come to that time where everyone wants to be a superhero, he explains. All just a rumour, but who knows? What do you think? Should he get a part?
Some twitter asked questions:
Describe each other in one word:
Miles about Theo – “tanned”
Theo about Miles – “long”
Jump off a moving train or onto one?
Theo: Off of one
Miles: Onto one – going somewhere in a hurry rather than leaving in a hurry
What was it like to film on the ferris wheel?
Theo: Shai had no fear of heights and I was trying to pretend, this is nothing, but I obviously peed my pants.
Is Peter truly evil or is his actions justified?
Miles: justified – have to side with my character. Peter is misunderstood.
So what’s next?
Miles and Theo are performing on the MTV VMAs, a very special piece called Divergent the Musical, tag line: Diverge me.
There it is, the full wrap up. What did we learn? Miles Teller and Theo James together equals LOTS of jokes and laughter! I could not sit with a straight face whilst watching this chat, it was hilarious!! PLEASE go watch it if you missed it, you won’t regret it!
In addition to this round up, I have 20 special screenshots from the chat for all!! You’re welcome
