Shailene Woodley has revealed that she is very anti-technology. That is to say, she doesn’t possess a cell phone, nor a Twitter account, and not even a television! Kit Hoover from Access Hollywood asked the 22-year-old Divergent star straight at CinemaCon on Friday:
“No cell phone, is it true? You have no cell phone?” To which Woodley responded, amazingly: “It is true. This month, I’ve had a cell phone because Lionsgate during press for ‘Divergent’ has been like, ‘We need to get a hold of you, here’s a phone.’ But, I don’t have a personal one.”
Wow, a 22-year-old Hollywood celebrity who doesn’t have the latest iPhone and isn’t obsessed with posting things about her life via social media, wonders never cease.
Shailene Woodley did say that she did have an Instagram account, at least for a short time:
“I did have an Instagram before and I realized that I was just constantly doing this at a stoplight or when I was waiting for something. And then one day my thumb, I held it still, and it started shaking and it was always shaking. And I was like, ‘I’m 22 years old! That is not OK!’ And I think it was literally from typing so much and scrolling,” she revealed.
Okay, so, many of us are aware of the perils of social media, but not to own a TV? Who doesn’t own a television? Or four? Shailene doesn’t, as she revealed: “I haven’t owned a TV, in God knows how long, but I would have to say ‘Top Chef’. I will…watch ‘Top Chef,’ any time, any day.”
All well and good, but what about the eating clay thing, as noted in the title of this article? Yes, you read correctly. Shailene Woodley likes eating clay, as she explained: “Clay is amazing. If you look it up, indigenous cultures around the world, they all eat it and have for many, I mean thousands of years.”
Erm, eat clay – really?! Well, according to Shailene there is a pretty good explanation as to why you should: “What it does is your body doesn’t absorb clay. It binds to radioactive isotopes as well as heavy metals and it helps your body eliminate it. So it’s one of the only ways to get rid of radiation out of our bodies,” she said.
So if you are having any issues with any radioactive isotopes or heavy metals, be sure to munch on the nearest bit of clay you can find, Shailene Woodley claims it works wonders.
