Shailene Woodley comes across as one of the most down-to-earth celebrities in Hollywood, and her interviews definitely support that impression. Shailene was featured in the latest issue of Marie Claire Magazine, and she discusses with her struggles in Hollywood.
She explains, "I struggle in real life trying to balance my natural connection to the earth and the somewhat materialistic side of the industry I am in…Anything over a certain amount of money freaks me out.” She also adds that she doesn't like being a 'celebrity', adding, "I don’t use it to describe myself. In high school, a lot of my friends didn’t know I was an actor because I didn’t talk about it. They would come to school and be like, ‘Wait, were you on My Name is Earl last night?’ It was something I kept under wraps because I did it for myself and not for anybody else.”
Shailene also explains that she would be just as happy not acting, and being a herbalist or opening a fruit stand. She says, "If I didn’t have acting, I would be just as happy. I would probably be an herbalist, or maybe I would open a fruit stand on a Hawaiian island.”
Well, I don't think she'll have to become a herbalist or fruit stand owner, because she's about to have a massive 2014. With 'Divergent' hitting theaters at the beginning of the year, and 'The Fault In Our Stars' scheduled for later, it certainly seems like everyone will know her name by the end of next year.
