Where was Shailene Woodley when she got the call to audition for The Descendents? Working at American Apparel, of course.
“I was like, â€˜Canâ€™t we Skype or something?’” she shared of hearing that director Alexander Payne wanted her for the part. “I made a commitment at American Apparel, and I didnâ€™t want to let my bosses down.”
Calling in sick and faking the flu was probably one of the best decisions she ever made, since she fell in love with Hawaii as soon as she set foot on the islands. “The second I landed, I was like, â€˜This is home.â€™ My bodyâ€™s in L.A., but my heart is in Hawaii,” Shai said.
