Shailene Woodley: I Don't Own a Cellphone!

Shailene Woodley and Theo James make their way through swarms of people at LAX Airport on Thursday (March 6) in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old actress recently discussed the notion of lack of privacy in the world due to technology.

“I’m not a big technology person. I don’t even have a smartphone. I don’t even have a cellphone!,” Shailene told The Daily Beast. “And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone. There’s a bigger lack of privacy than there’s ever been, but there’s also a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there’s ever been. I mean … just asking people for directions. Since I got rid of my phone, having to pull over and be like, “Hey, buddy—do you know how to get here?” I’m talking to people more than I’ve ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have.”

FYI: Shailene is wearing a Minnie Rose cashmere sweater.

I really like this girl; some may call her a fake or whatnot, but I think she’s pretty sensible and cool.

@Pretty Ka: she was cooler when she didn’t have a big flop franchise to promote i wish she stayed in movies like the descendants studios are trying to make her the it girl it’s so cringy

# 4

So far what I know about this girl is, her religion is a Tree, she doesn’t owned a smartphone and she have a Bigfoot as her pet animal. Seems Legit.

# 5

Been following her career for over 6 years now. She’s a great actress and the real deal. Nothing fake about her.

# 6

@alan:

Yeah, she really annoying. And why does she keep name dropping Jennifer Lawrence constantly?

# 7

@Amy

Because they keep asking her over and over again. Just like they asked Jen about Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson before The Hunger Games.

# 8

Not owning a cell is too much. She’s a luddite and it’s not progress.

# 9

I agree there’s too much technology and people’s friends are becoming their devices, but a cell phone is a good thing to have.

This girl is a total liar and fake. Why lie about a cell phone? No one thinks you’re any better for not having one. Someone I worked with in the past just worked on a film with her. He recently posted a photo of them behind the scenes and she has a cell phone, texting away. So dumb.

@Jordy:
Did you read? She said she got rid of her phone.

Love that she doesn’t own a cell phone. I don’t have one either!

This girl is trying to be original and be loved like J.Law with THG. The thing with J.Law is that she didn’t try so hard. People just ended up liking her based on how she behaved. By Woodley’s random facts during interviews, it doesn’t do anything for her. It doesn’t make her seem endearing. It’s just plain odd how she says these things. Do people actually ask her “do you have a cell phone?” “what type of religion do you follow?” “do you cream your own butter?” “do you live on a farm?” Just stop divulging random information before people even like you.

@Amy:

The truth always hurts. More people should be like her. Actually going outside and seeing life rather than spending all day on social media.

@Fake:

Studies prove that people who avoid social media are far happier than those who indulge in such nonsense constantly. The Dr. Oz show even dedicated a whole segment to showing how people in her age group are getting lost in that social media world of theirs. Progress isn’t never going outside because you can’t get off the computer.

@Jordy:

Uh, buddy. Stars are given cellphones while working on a movie. Vince Vaugh also doesn’t own one, but the studio provides him with one when he’s on the set of something. It happens all the time. Not everyone is a slave to the social media/text crazy fad.

@EM:

EM, reporters ask all that stuff based on gossip they’ve heard.

@jejejejej:

She said she got rid of it. Not that she never ever ever owned a phone. See, this is the impact social media has on us. No one knows how to read anymore.

Google her and cell phone and you’ll see she’s got a cell phone it’s all lies again and there’s many photos and they are since she stated she doesn’t have one. I’m so sick of stars and their lies.
