Theo James: It’s Time for a Gay Action Hero


Theo James isn’t just a hottie—he’s also a heartthrob with a heart of gold.
In a new interview with The Advocate, the Divergent stud opened up about the flick, which, like the Hunger Games , features a strong female heroine who doesn’t need to rely on a man. And while some actors in Hollywood may be uncomfortable letting a lady take the lead, James admits he wishes there were more powerful roles for women and even hopes the world will one day embrace an LGBT action hero.
“We’re in a world where masculinity, especially with these big spectacle movies, is often pushed by rippling six packs and forcing an image down someone’s throat trying to prove masculinity. Whereas I think true masculinity comes from having a strong sense of self,” he says. “Part of what drew me to Four was his concept of masculinity, specifically in how he relates to Tris and their relationship. He’s intrigued by her but respectful of her bravery and her personality traits.”
