Shailene Woodley covers the new issue of Vanity Fair, and as expected, the earth mother actress gave the mag a ramblingly naive interview in which she tackles the Big Issues: fracking, global warming, GMOs...and how weird Divergent fans can be.
And not just Divergent, fans, mind you, but any screamingly obsessed young folks. Take it away, Shai:
"The whole fan thing is very strange to me," says Woodley. "I've never had anybody that I have gone crazy for...And so it's a weird thing for me to relate to, especially the screaming sort of young fandom the Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent world caters to."
Woodley has scoffed at Jennifer Lawrence comparisons in the past, so this isn't the first time she's mentioned Divergent and HG in the same breath.
Her comments are certainly understandable, but in addition to the fact that they may alienate her youthful fan base, is Shailene subtly (and perhaps unintentionally) throwing shade on the J-Laws and K-Stews of the world?
After all, by talking about how weird overzealous fans are, doesn't she imply that stars who don't openly reject that culture are also a bit strange?
Woodley dissed Twilight in the past and some might interpret her remarks to Vanity Fair as a continuation of the inter-franschise beef.
Or perhaps we're reading too much into Shailene's comments.
After all, the actress has a history of endearingly unguarded, off the cuff comments that have angered oversensitive fans.
Many accused Woodley of making anti-feminist comments earlier this year after she stated that she doesn't identify with the movement.
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.
