To coincide with the release of “The Divergent Series : Insurgent”, out on DVD and Blu-ray today, we’ve an exclusive interview clip from the release. Here’s Kate Winslet talking about her villainous turn as Jeanine Matthews.

On the run and targeted by ruthless faction leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet), Tris fights to protect the people she loves, facing one impossible challenge after another as she and Four (James) race to unlock the truth about the past—and ultimately the future—of their world.
