Shailene Woodley and Theo James have received worldwide fame from their respective roles in the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling sci-fi book series, Divergent. The recently released film in the franchise, The Divergent Series: Allegiant, however, did not perform well at the box-office and now James has joked that he will start working in adult films.

Allegiant was made against a budget of $110 million dollars and according to BoxOfficeMojo, the film managed to earn $148.1 million dollars. Due to lack of under performance from the lead star cast, THR compared the big-budget film with Gods of Egypt, who also had the same fate at the box-office. Many critics blamed the under performance by Woodley and James on Liongate's decision of splitting the final story into two parts.

James, who stars as Four in the series, is not taking the wrath of box-office lightly.

When in a recent interview, The Theologians asked James that what he would be doing if his acting career did not take off. James answered that the world probably would have seen him as a poor musician.

"I'd definitely do porn as well - but just classy porn, with long storylines. I'd be a Latin dancer," James jokingly added.

This is not the first time that James has hinted about going away from the fantasy genres. In an earlier interview with Toronto Sun, the 31-year-old actor stated that after the release of the final film in the Divergent franchise, he wants to maintain a low profile and will opt for smaller roles.

"I'm looking forward to doing smaller things for a little bit. In a way I have less experience with them, so I need to develop myself as an actor and as a person."

James also talked about choosing different films in an interview with Interview Magazine, in which he stated that as an actor, it is necessary for him to experiment on different genres.

After the last part in Divergent series, The Divergent Series: Ascending, James will be seen in Underwood: Next Generation and War on Everyone.
