Shailene Woodley fans have a lot to celebrate these days. The Divergent actress has been making the media rounds to promote the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars, which hits theaters June 6. Woodley joined fellow TFIOS actors Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and author John Green on a fan tour which, according to Just Jared Jr., wrapped up in Dallas last weekend.
That’s not all for Shailene. She turned heads in a striking floral print on the June cover of InStyle, the latest in a series of seemingly “nature-inspired” fashion choices, in the words of blogger Perez Hilton. Those choices include a butterfly dress spotted on Woodley as she arrived to a taping of The Late Show With David Letterman.
That was the interview where Shailene famously told Letterman she eats clay for its health benefits. People writer Catherine Kast tested the claim by trying the clay herself for several days. Kast concluded the clay made her less hungry and perhaps inspired her to make healthier eating choices.
Now Shailene shows off her ability to connect on-screen. Pop Sugar exclusively released a new scene from TFIOS yesterday. To see the moment where Woodley’s character calls herself a grenade, check out the clip below.
Despite rumblings the film version of TFIOS is not true to the novel – as previously reported by The Inquisitr, fans at an advance screening felt the movie failed to explore some of the novel’s abstract concepts – TFIOS is poised to be a summer hit. It’s a busy period for Woodley as the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, is filming in Atlanta this spring, according to the Chicago Tribune, and is set for 2015 release.
She’s also “homeless,” as she gave her L.A. house to her grandmother. Woodley told Jimmy Kimmel she was never home much anyway – all of last year she’d spent only 15 days in her own bedroom.
In March, upon the release of Divergent, Woodley told the Daily Mail she sought out her fellow twenty-something, actress Jennifer Lawrence, for advice. Lawrence stars in the Hunger Games movies and Shailene wanted her words of wisdom of the transition from indie films to a blockbuster franchise.
Woodley reports Jennifer reassured her over email, counseling her to stay away from the grocery store on opening day and that “[t]he amount of beauty and positivity that come with it will transcend any of the other complications.”
If her recent success is any indication, Shailene Woodley is handling those complications like a star.
