Hollywood actress Shailene Woodley has become a household name around the world over the past few years, thanks to some very impressive performances in some interesting movies. Shailene has developed quite the huge fanbase all across the globe but she has admitted that she still finds it strange that she has fans screaming her name, as she says that she finds it hard to relate to.
Woodley was being interviewed for Vanity Fair magazine, when she explained, "The whole fan thing is very strange to me, because I've never had anybody that I have gone crazy for, like whether it was an actor or a musician. And so it's a weird thing for me to relate to, especially the screaming sort of young fandom, the 'Twilight', 'Hunger Games', 'Divergent' world caters to. So I kind of actually try to like actively remove myself from the situation."
She added, "There's this idea that actors and that musicians or models or whatever are better than the fans, and the fans look up to them because they're an actor. People that I look up to in life are people who make a difference, and brave, strong women. I've met people where I'm like, 'Hi, I'm Shai,' and they can't even see me because they're screaming, and I'm making eye contact with them, but they're not there. And that, to me, is weird."
Shailene Woodley has found herself in the same sort of situation as Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence, following the success of the Divergent movie, and she will have to deal with plenty more of that in the future. Shailene reprises her role as Tris for the sequels, Insurgent, which opens on March 20, 2015, Allegiant - Part 1, which opens on March 18, 2016, and Allegiant - Part 2, which opens on March 27, 2017.
