Since the first “Divergent” movie came out in March 2014, rumors have been swirling regarding the possible relationship of British actor Theo James and Shailene Woodley, apparently because the two of them really look good together on-screen.
So when the sequel to the movie titled “Insurgent” came out in March this year, the speculations only heightened especially because Theo and Shailene have intimate scenes in the film and they do look at ease and comfortable with each other.
In a recent interview, Theo James revealed that it is his natural chemistry with Shailene Woodley that makes them look like a real couple in the eyes of viewers. He also acknowledges that because of the chemistry between them, their intimate scenes on the film were easy to direct as they both feel at ease and comfortable with one another, notes the Movie News Guide.
First kissing scene
James disclosed that during his first ever kissing scene with Woodley, he admitted that he felt awkward. But eventually, he got the hang of it especially with their chemistry already showing up.
He said that the chemistry between them was never forced that is why it looks very real and natural and results in the best scenes. In addition, they also had fun doing it because they really felt comfortable with one another, cites Realty Today.
Although the 30-year-old actor admits that he was uncomfortable at first but as time went by and the chemistry between them came to play, it became easy for the two of them.
He also believes that it is because of their natural rapport on-screen which is causing the rumors that he and the 24-year-old actress have been dating.
James said that he is not bothered at all by the rumors because it was not true, but he wants to protect his long-time girlfriend Ruth Kearney from it because it is just unfair for her.
Postponement of wedding
Theo James has recently deferred the supposed wedding plans for him and long-time girlfriend Ruth Kearney.
But the postponement has nothing to do with his co-star in the upcoming third movie of the “Divergent” series Shailene Woodley as some rumors put it.
It turns out that the Hollywood career of the 30-year-old actor is going great guns these days following the first two movies of the “Divergent” series.
The third and fourth movies of the franchise will also be released in the same month next year and also in 2017.
Sources close to the couple say that Ruth Kearney, who is also a British actress, would surely understand the request of her boyfriend to defer their wedding plans as he focuses on his acting career.
In addition to doing at least two movies featuring “Underworld 5” and “Divergent: Allegiant,” Theo James has also been signed as the new endorser for the latest campaign of Hugo Boss.
Meanwhile, Theo James and his girlfriend Ruth Kearney were spotted last month packing some PDA in Prague, Czech Republic, where the British actor was actually filming the fifth installment of the “Underworld” movie franchise
Reports have it that the production of the movie, officially titled “Underworld: Next Generation” has begun on November 26 and will run for a period of 10 weeks.
Apparently, Ruth decided to join her boyfriend in the country where they were spotted on November 27 enjoying some romantic sightseeing in Prague and also sharing a kiss.
“Underworld: Next Generation” shall also feature Kate Beckinsale, whom Theo also worked with during the fourth movie of the series titled “Underworld: Awakening” released in 2012.
Prior to the reports that Theo James and Ruth Kearney are about to get married, there have been speculations about the blossoming relationship between the British actor and Shailene Woodley.
