Shailene Woodley in Marie Claire: Divergent Star Opens Up on Body Image

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Shailene Woodley has been sort of famous for a decade.

She starred in The Secret Life of the American Teenager on TV and in film The Descendants with George Clooney.

But as the lead in the soon-to-be-released Divergent, movie she's about to become a super star.

The 22-year-old actress did an interview with Marie Claire and wasn't shy about opening up.

"My whole life I've been so self-conscious about being skinny. And just recently I don't care anymore."

"All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don't really matter at all," she says when asked why she doesn't go to the gym.

And don't look for her on Instagram anymore - she deleted her account.

"Everything I was posting was for a story - like, 'Look how interesting I am,'' says the star. "It felt disgusting to me. It feels as though we're so detached from actual human connection."

"And I got rid of my phone, too. We're all such narcissists, and that's what social media caters to."

If she hates Instagram, what does she love? Herbs, gelato, yoga and Miley Cyrus:

"I don't really know anything about twerking. I admire that she's doing what she wants to do. I wasn't really a fan of hers before, and now I'm just so fascinated by her."

"I love how everyone's throwing a fit about something that isn't their life," Shailene says.
