"I like that there's a lot of newcomers playing some of the roles in 'Divergent'. It's just great. You know, when I did 'Titanic,' I still wasn't really that very well known.

And 'Titanic' changed everything in my life. It's just great to see the film industry embracing newcomers in that way," she said.
