Shailene Woodley: Filming in Hawaii 'Grounded Me'

Shailene Woodley poses for a photo shoot for Paper Mag‘s Winter issue.

Here’s what 20-year-old actress, who’s getting rave reviews for her role in The Descendants, had to share with the mag:

On appreciating, but feeling limited, in Secret Life of the American Teenager: “Time and money are of the essence and there’s very little creativity that’s involved.”

On working with director Alexander Payne on The Descendants: “You can try the slide for a few minutes, then you play on the swings. He gives you the chance to explore yourself and to be yourself. He told us, ‘I hired you to be you.’”

On plans to raise a family in Kauai, Hawaii, where much of The Descendants was filmed: “I came into my own there. It was the one experience in my young adult life that grounded and centered me. I can’t see myself raising little naked babies anywhere else – picking avocados from trees.”
