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.
