Shai­lene Wood­ley

On be­ing a Hol­ly­wood hip­pie and tak­ing J.Law’s ad­vice

CLEO (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

In a day and age where young Hol­ly­wood is mak­ing head­lines for tantrums rather than tal­ent, one young star in par­tic­u­lar stands out and forces you take no­tice of her bet­ter qual­i­ties. This star is no other than Shai­lene Wood­ley. Start­ing out as an ac­tress at age five, Wood­ley has worked her way up the ranks to be­com­ing one of Tinseltown’s big­gest names to look out for. In 2014 alone, Wood­ley has made her­self a house­hold name by head­lin­ing in two of the year’s big­gest films, Di­ver­gent and The Fault In Our Stars. De­spite her fame and suc­cess, Wood­ley in­sists on stay­ing grounded. She tries not to wear make-up, in­sists on wear­ing worn clothes, un­less it’s a red car­pet event where she’s re­quired to wear de­signer out­fits, doesn’t own a mo­bile phone, and lives as nat­u­rally and un­ob­tru­sively in na­ture as she can. She even takes hikes into moun­tains to col­lect wa­ter from springs for daily use. In this in­ter­view, Shai­lene talks about con­fronting her fears, not want­ing fans for her­self, and her daily med­i­ta­tion.
