With his new film “Divergent” nearing its highly anticipated premiere, Theo James scored a feature in the March 2014 issue of GQ magazine.

During his Q&A session with the publication, the 29-year-old actor discussed his hesitation to do the movie-adaptation to the famous Veronica Roth novel despite growing up loving reading other film inspired books.

"I probably pretended I was reading, like, Sartre or something,” Theo explained. “But it was all Harry potter and Lord of the Rings."
