A Guide to Divergent's 8 Post-Apocalyptic Hot Guys


Hold tight, Divergent fans, we’re almost there. The highly anticipated adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young adult book comes out on Friday. Until then, we have a bevy of beautiful guys to help you wait it out.

While trailers for the film focus on Shailene Woodley battling a menacing Kate Winslet, they’re missing all the gorgeous men the five factions have to offer.

Relative newcomer, Theo James, has recieved some attention for his drool-worthy portrayal of brooding Dauntless coach, Four. It helps that costar Woodley recently gave his kissing talents the thumbs-up. But Four isn’t the only hot number in this action film; it’s brimming with studs of all ages.
