Shailene Woodley Has A Hard Time with Politics in Hollywood

Shailene Woodley keeps it simple in a stunning shot from The Edit by Net-A-Porter.

Here’s what the 24-year-old Snowden actress had to share with the mag:

On being a part of Snowden: “When I found out they were making this movie, I begged my agents to get me a meeting with Oliver (Stone)… I just wasn’t on his radar. I don’t think he’d seen anything I’d done… I just wanted to sit down with him and say, as a young woman entering adulthood, thank you for making a movie that will change my life, and my peers’ lives.”

On why she thinks about Lindsay Mills every day: “I think about Lindsay every day, and we wrapped this movie over a year ago. She’s a real person, living through this story now… Lindsay was a yoga and pole-dance instructor, and (the press) tore her apart (saying): ‘Edward Snowden’s girlfriend is a stripper.’ She was a fitness coach… At least when you’re an actor, you expect that kind of reporting, but she never signed up for it.”

On American politics: “I have a hard time having political conversations in Hollywood. Most people there are so privileged, they don’t see the 99% of America, because they don’t have to. It’s hard for people like that to see another perspective.”

On her parents’ attitude to bullies: “There were times in school, when someone said something really mean, it would hurt my feelings and my parents weren’t on my side. They would be like, ‘I’m so sorry you’re feeling this way, but what do you think that person was feeling?’ Oh, I hated it. Now, of course, I understand it; it’s enabled me to recognize that no-one’s evil, they’re probably hurting and can’t express themselves, get no love at home, so it’s repeated. It gave me a broader outlook: just put yourself in another person’s shoes.”

Shailene Woodley Isn't Interested In 'Divergent' TV Adaption

Shailene Woodley will not be involved in the Divergent TV adaptions, she shared with press this week.

Speaking with Screen Rant during her Snowden press rounds, the 24-year-old actress stated that not interested in the franchise if it does turn into a television series.

“Last I heard they were trying to make it into a television show. I didn’t sign up to be in a television show,” she shared. “Out of respect to the studio and everyone in involved, they may have changed their mind and may be doing something different, but I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show.”

Lionsgate announced earlier this summer that the final film, Ascendant, would skip the big screen for a TV movie and spinoff series.
