Shailene Woodley Opens Up About Nude Scenes for 'White Bird'

Shailene Woodley gets sandwiched in between her co-stars Shiloh Fernandez and Christopher Meloni at the premiere of their movie White Bird in a Blizzard on Tuesday evening (October 21) at the ArcLight in Hollywood.

The 22-year-old actress has opened up about going nude in the movie and she says it wasn’t a big deal.

“I felt like it was very truthful,” Shailene said (via Us Weekly). “I feel like it lent itself to this movie. It wasn’t exploitative. There’s nothing that bothers me about seeing people have intimate scenes in films. The woman has clothes on, has full makeup, and the man has boxers — that’s just not how it works.”

“My opinion is that intimacy is a natural part of being a human being,” Shailene added. “Especially when you’re young, you’re exploring that part of yourself for the first time. I think that a lot of films that have young people in them don’t often explore that factor for various reasons. But I do love Gregg [Araki]‘s films in that way. Because they are truthful and they’re daring. Especially this one.”

FYI: Shailene is wearing a Stella McCartney blazer, Citizens of Humanity jeans, and The Frye Company sneakers. Shiloh is wearing Kurt Geiger London shoes.
