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?

Shailene Woodley's Jennifer Lawrence comments may be getting the most headlines these days, but it's a different kind of drama that could soon make Shailene a box office legend.

Movie ticket sales site Fandango says that Woodley's upcoming film The Fault In Our Stars has posted bigger pre-release sales numbers than any romantic drama in the site's 14-year history.

The highly-anticipated movie has officially beat the 2011 release "The Vow" which went on to gross a whopping $41 million dollars in its opening weekend.

Fault's pre-sale numbers are just about unprecedented for a summer release that's not an action movie or a sequel.

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."

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."

It's Divergent week! Let's celebrate the release of the post-apocalyptic teen drama by rounding up some of the craziest things Shailene Woodley has said during her many recent interviews.

From sun-tanning her vagina to eating clay, Shailene has a lot of, uh, INTERESTING habits.

I suspect if we DID all live in a destroyed future-Chicago Shailene would either survive way longer than any of us (foraging for food! making her own cheese!) or she'd be the first one killed (sharing her aloha soul with the wrong people sounds dangerous).

Maybe we should have seen this coming - after all, she is Divergent.

Read 13 of her craziest quotes below and see what we mean:

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.

In Divergent, Shailene Woodley's character is at the center of a dangerous world because she's different from most others.

And this appears to be a similar story for the actress in real life, following comments she made in a recent interview with Into the Gloss.

“I like to give my vagina a little vitamin D,” Woodley said, explaining why she exposes her nether regions to some UV rays:

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.

Shailene Woodley stars in what many people believe will be the next big tween smash, Divergent.

But in a new interview with Teen Vogue, the young actress throws some serious shade at a previous tween smash, The Twilight Saga.

“Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship,” Woodley tells the magazine of the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson franchise.

What, exactly, is her beef with the movies?

“[Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself!" Woodley says. "What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve."

That's... sort of hard to argue, isn't it? Click through photos of this pretty star in Teen Vogue below and defend your franchise, Twihards!

Divergent fans, we hope you're sitting down. The first official trailer for the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling young adult novel is here!

Starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, Divergent is set in a dystopian futuristic Chicago, where the citizens are divided into distinct factions.

Woodley's Beatrice "Tris" Prior is about to take the crucial aptitude / personality test that all 16-year-olds must to find out where they belong.

Watch the full-length preview for the much-anticipated movie below:

As you might expect, even if you're among the uninitiated, Tris' results make her ... divergent. In other words, she just doesn't fit into any society.

"The only way society can survive is for each of you to claim your rightful place," Kate Winslet, who plays a faction leader, tells the divided groups.

Tris, therefore, must hide who she is as she seeks to learn what makes herself and others deemed divergent so dangerous, before it's too late.
