Shailene Woodley Scoffs at Jennifer Lawrence Comparison: We Both Have Vaginas and... ?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Shailene Woodley is 22 years old. Jennifer Lawrence is 23.

Both star in major film franchises based on Young Adult novels and both are known for dropping memorable, headline-making quotes while promoting their movies.

But Woodley doesn't understand why people compare the actresses.

"I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to," The Fault in Our Stars star says to New York Magazine. "Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important."

Woodley is actually making a far grander point here than anything having to do with her or J. Law.

"As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-workers, to the images in a magazine. How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others?" she asks.

"As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress."

The second I wake up, I scream very loudly

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.

Waking up in the morning is an event.

Shailene is also generating buzz for going totally naked for a sex scene in White Bird in a Blizzard.

But she tells the publication that she doesn't understand all the fuss.

"Everyone was freaked out because I’m nude, but in real life, when I have sex, I’m naked. I don’t have a bra on, and I don’t usually have panties on. So let’s make a real movie! Let’s bring truth to the scene!"

Makes sense to us. (Note to Kate Upton: we're still waiting on your nude sex scene.)
