After making over $54 million at the North American box office, Hollywood blockbuster 'Divergent' had its UK premiere on Sunday. Star Kate Winslet was among those walking the red carpet. She's cast against type as the villain of the piece. SOUNBITE, Kate Winslet, actress, saying: "Well it is against my nature and it was doubly difficult because I was nearly five months pregnant when we shot the film and every part of me is in this gooey, happy mode and so to go to work every day and be a complete cow, I had to dig deep." The movie tells the tale of Tris played by Shailene Woodley. She lives in a dystopian world where members of society are put into factions based on what they can excel at. The actress has made a splash with some quirky beliefs - she forages for he food and says she doesn't own a mobile phone. SOUNBITE, Shailene Woodley, saying: "Am I an extreme character? I think so. I think I'm a kind of all or nothing person. I either throw myself into something 100 per cent or I just skip out." "Divergent" is released in the UK on April 4.
