Love and romance between co-stars is not something that is wholly uncommon in Hollywood. However, most celebrities tend to shy away from on set romances and Shailene Woodely is no different. Though rumors have been swirling that she and Divergent co-star Theo James are dating behind the scenes. In a recent interview however, Woodley said that dating a co-star is not strictly out of the realm of possibility. She did say however that any dating or romance would have to be saved until after the cameras stopped rolling.

There has been some speculation as to whether she was talking about James or her other co-star from the Fault in Our Stars, Ansel Elgort. Woodley has been seen out and about with her Divergent co-star at charity events, dinner dates, and more. Woodley and James seemed rather close at a recent charity screening of their new movie. Only time will tell if the co-stars are more than just friends. It stands to reason however, that with a franchise film like Divergent, Woodley would have to leave James off the table until all three installments of the film are completed.

Woodley has been linked to several co-stars in the past including those that worked with her on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Woodley has not been linked to any one Hollywood stud but it does seem like she and James are getting a bit cozy. Woodley said of James that he is a great kisser and that she only wishes there had been a kissing test when they tried out for the film. Some claim that the supposed romance is nothing more than a fabrication to drum up publicity for their film that hits theaters world wide on March 21, 2013.

This would not be the first time that co-stars have pretended to be dating to drum up the curiosity of the masses. Many speculated that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio were an item shortly before Titanic launched and it went on to be one of the top grossing films of all time. Only time will tell if this pair is more than just friends or if the romance is nothing more than a chance to get even more attention than the film is already drawing. Woodley has also been linked to other stars in the film including Miles Teller but she claims that she has not had a real boyfriend for over five years. Over the next few months those that believe they are a real couple will see if their romance is real or just fake.


Rumors have been swirling that Shailene Woodley and Divergent co-star Theo James are dating behind the scenes. Are the rumors true?
