Exclusive: Veronica Roth and Ansel Elgort hit the ‘Divergent’ red carpet in Orlando

On Monday, Veronica Roth and Ansel Elgort hit the Divergent red carpet in Orlando, greeted by a throng of fans and their shrill screams for a special screening event of the highly-anticipated flick due out March 21. They were rockstars. And they completely owned Orlando.

Veronica and Ansel talked to the press and spent time with fans, signing autographs and, in the case of Ansel, taking selfies. I seriously lost track of how many selfies Ansel took with fans. Henceforth he shall be known as Selfie King.

Through the madness, we managed to get a quick chat in with Veronica Roth, who talked about the universal appeal of Divergent and the surreal movie experience.
