Unlike many other young celebrities, Shailene Woodley does not consider herself a feminist.
But this may be because the Divergent star fails to grasp the concept of feminism in the first place.
In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Woodley explained her supposedly anti-feminist views by saying:
"I love men, and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance."
"With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are."
"And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either. We have to have a fine balance."
Most would argue, of course, that the entire goal of feminism is to strike a balance.
No one out there is pushing for women to make more than men, for example; they are pushing for equal pay for equal work.
... actually, we're not entirely sure why.
The second I wake up, I scream very loudly [sings to the tune of "Good Morning" from Singin' in the Rain], "Good morning! Good morning!" And then I scream out, "Exciting day! Exciting day!" I feel like it completely sets the mood for the whole day.
I like to give my vagina a little vitamin D,
Some movies have made me laugh, but I've never thought, 'Wow, if it weren't for that movie, I'd be a different person.' Except Pocahontas.
You can do something called âoil pullingâ where you swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out. Itâs amazing! It really makes your teeth whiter, because the plaque on your teeth is not water soluble, itâs fat-soluble. So the lipids have to dissolve in fats, which is why oil works in your mouth.
If I wasn't an actress, I'd probably do something with food. Finding seeds, planting seeds, watching them grow, harvesting the fruits, cooking the fruits, eating them, seeing how my body reacts, and even digesting.
Shailene Woodley: the way in which our epidermis heals itself leaves me humbled and amazed. cells working their magic and re-weaving the web of skin :))))))))
Teenagers are so smart. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today.
The world Aloha, if you break it down, means breath and spirit, so when Hawaiians say Aloha, they are not only saying hello or goodbye. They are saying, 'I am seeing your spirit, and I am giving you mine.'
Most people have never heard of clay, or spring water, or chlorophyll, which shocks me because that's what I revolve my life around, but then it shocks them that I know nothing about a big designer, or director, or producer.
I first heard about the benefits of eating clay from a taxi driver.
It's amazing what our inner children, our previous selves, can teach us about our present-day lives.
I make my own medicines; I donât get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. Itâs an entire lifestyle. Itâs appealing to my soul.
