Shailene Woodley revealed that Kate Winslet was mortified on the set of "Divergent."

In a conversation with Hitfix, Woodley praised the Academy Award winner, and said that Winslet hated the fact that she had a bigger trailer than the rest of the cast. She explained: "Kate was mortified that she had a bigger trailer than us. She's like, 'I just noticed that I have a trailer that's bigger than all of yours. I feel mortified. I can't believe they did this.' Because she's so down to earth and she's so humble that that was a really big deal to her."

Woodley also said that when the production was casting the role of Four they looked at every single actor between 16 and 30 years old. She said, "We had read every single young man out there between the ages of I would say 16 and 30. And nobody really had the essence of being vulnerable and masculine at the same time. Some guys came in and were so incredibly masculine that there was no depth there, there was no sensitivity, there was no vulnerability. And then...I'd say 98 percent of the guys came in there and I was tougher than they were. They were just not very masculine. And so it was really, really difficult to find somebody." 

She continued: "After the audition, he kinda left and everybody looked at each other and were like, 'holy shit, that's him. Like, 'we just spent four months looking for Theo James.'"

Woodley is currently promoting her new film "The Spectacular Now," which also stars Miles Teller. She recently said that before taking the role of Tris in the film, she called Jennifer Lawrence for advice on moving from smaller Indie films to the major studio films.

"Divergent" tells the story of a teenager, Tris, who seeks to break free from her homogeneous society that divides people based on human traits. She leaves her faction and joins a rival group, where she falls for an older man. The film also stars Theo James, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Maggie Q, Ashley Judd, and Ray Stevenson.

Summit Entertainment will release "Divergent" on March 21, 2014.
