“Theo didn’t become an actor until he was in his late 20s,” Woodley began. “And that’s how he lived his whole life. He went to university; he studied philosophy. He’s an intellectual and the best thing about working with him is that he’s just – he’s got class. He’s a gentleman and he gets this industry for what it’s worth. You know, he loves to act, but the excess of everything doesn’t bother him at all. And he doesn’t let it get to him, which is really a luxury.”
