Shailene Woodley is one of the most talented actresses of this generation,” Stephen Friedman, President of MTV, said in a statement. “Whether baring her soul in emotionally charged roles in The Descendents and The Fault In Our Stars or igniting our imagination in sci-fi blockbusters like Insurgent, Shailene has raised the bar for actresses navigating diverse and challenging roles professionally, while personally remaining down-to-earth and accessible to her fans.”

    I don’t get the hype about this girl? I prefer Kristen Stewart, Shailene Wodley .. Shes a good actress but not great, okay performance in the fault in our stars and so far bad acting in divergent series she has other movies but I don’t even want to waste my time on watching them, she doesn’t support feminism.. shes not that beautiful.. and she seems so up herself and thanks shes better than everyone else.. ugh so over her and her career has pretty much only started.

    Good for her! I really like Shailene! Why isn’t Theo James presenting the award? This is his second movie with her, too. In fact, with Insurgent out now it should be him.

    only overrated actors get this award Emma Stone/Watson Channing tatum and now this girl why don’t they give it to Amanda Seyfried ? an actress who is been working for so many years and not getting the credit she deserves such a shame !

    If you don’t think she’s a good actress, you haven’t seen The Descendants! She was amazing in that film. As far as the “she’s not beautiful” statement is concerned…you and I clearly have different standards of beauty, because I think she’s gorgeous.

  • CatWhisperer

    I think she’s highly overrated.

  • msv

    Why don’t they give it to Anne Hathaway who is a triple threat talent and a critically acclaimed stage actress ? She easily has Emma Stone, Emma Watson , Channing Tatum , and Jennifer Lawrence beat. Can any of these people do Shakespeare in Park, like Hathaway with rave reviews. No, they can’t. I am sick and tried of movie stars being overpraised for constantly playing themselves with one-note performances.

    She would make a good ‘character actress’.

  • FerCat

    “she’s not beautiful” You left out the ‘that’. Big difference in context.

  • FerCat

    Amanda Seyfried is way past that publicity stunt of an award.

  • Aloel96

    Insurgent is Miles Teller’s third movie with her though

  • Kathy

    This award is a joke

  • Tigerlilly

    I really like her :)

  • lix

    stop all the negativity guys.. Shailene Woodley is one of the good young actresses of today. I think she deserves a recognition.

    These comments are ridiculous. Why can’t someone have a little shine, why does it always resort to being “ugly” or “overrated”. It’s just an MTV award, you acting like she is being honored with a Nobel Peace Prize. I notice all these entertainment sites are full of disgusting comments especially towards female actors and I don’t get it. Like majority of you making these comments are so drop dead gorgeous, get over yourself.
