Meet Shailene Woodley (say it after us: Shy-leen). She’s the 22-year-old movie star who makes her own toothpaste, drinks from a mountain spring, and sunbathes her vagina.
In other words, she’s a young, crazy person wandering around being famous in Hollywood.
Shailene has been acting since she was five, and she’s just been cast in the next big sci-fi blockbuster, Divergent, which comes out here in April.
But you might remember her best from her stunning turn as George Clooney’s daughter in The Descendants. Back in 2011, she looked like this:
In addition to the whole acting thing, Shailene frequently cuddles interviewers, eats clay for nutrients, drinks chlorophyll, gargles oil, and bathes her nether regions in the sunlight.
And she just says the darndest things.
Here are the top 3 things she’s said so far…
1. Take your vagina out sunbaking.
She told Into The Gloss: “Another thing I like to do is give my vagina a little vitamin D. I was reading an article written by an herbalist about yeast infections and other genital issues. She said there’s nothing better than vitamin D. If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine.”
She “revolves her life around” chlorophyll (a green liquid health-nuts guzzle) and she eats clay (another bogus health-nut snack). She goes to the mountains to gather spring water, which she uses to make toothpaste, and she hates wearing bras (we hear you on that one, girl).
2. Don’t Photoshop me.
Woodley also regularly abstains from wearing makeup on the red carpet, and loathes retouching. She told Emma Stone in Interview Magazine:
“It’s important because I saw somebody—what I thought was me—in a magazine once, and I had big red lips that definitely did not belong on my face. I had boobs about three times the size they are in real life. My stomach was completely flat. My skin was also flawless. But the reality is that I do not have those lips and my skin is not flawless and I do have a little bit of a stomach. It was not a proper representation of who I am.”
3. Embrace polyamory, bisexuality and feminism.
She’s openly bi: “I fall in love with human beings based on who they are, not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
And poly-amorous: “I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever.”
And she’s a proudly outspoken feminist: “In this movie, there’s no envy and no jealousy — no ridiculous girl-fights. It’s such an important message to send out there in this age of feminism because, yes, men need to respect women, and women need to be the leads of films. But at the same time, how do we expect men to respect women if women don’t respect women? A big theme in my life is sisterhood, and I think that this movie is a really great representation of that…”
So, Shailene Woodley will either become a great female role model for young women…. Or a creepy flower-child who skips off into the horizon without telling anyone. Only time will tell.
