Starting with 2014's Divergent, Kravitz starred as one of the main characters in the film trilogy inspired by Veronica Roth's dystopian sci-fi series. When it came time to face just how big of an experience it was going to be, she says that while she wasn't wary of the experience, she was all too aware of just how much it had the potential to be life-changing.
"I wasn't hesitant like I didn't want to do it, but I was definitely aware, especially now that we have Twilight and Hunger Games, we've seen how it affects the people's lives that are in it. So I was cautious but I really like the story and I really liked the book, so it wasn't a hard decision," she told Collider.
She hadn't even heard of the books before being cast, but once she read the script and read the books, she said that there was so much about the story that confirmed it was absolutely the right thing to do. "What I like about Christina is her honesty, and me as an actor, I'm trying to be as honest as I can for my performance of her," she said. "So I hope that they feel her authenticity. She's not ashamed of who she is, and that's what I love about her so much. I hope that's what young woman can take away from her, too."
Kravtiz also says that it was during the filming for Insurgent that she discovered that she actually had a pretty massive fear: heights. Those that have seen the movie know that there's some dizzying stunts, and according to what she told Page Six, there were some things that she just couldn't bring herself to do. "My body would not allow me to take that last step," she said. "We're harnessed in… but I couldn't do it. Stunt double!"
