Shailene Woodley: 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Unbelievable'

Shailene Woodley: 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Unbelievable'

Shailene Woodley is featured in the newest issue of LA Confidential magazine as one of the actors who made an impact.

In the feature, the 20-year-old actress dishes on her ambitions as an actress, Pocahontas, and being wowed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Check it:

On her acting ambitions: “I still don’t know if I have to be an actor. I don’t know if I want to be an actor. I love to act—the expression and the creation of it. But the day it becomes not fun, then I’ll quit. It’s only about giving me those butterflies, and if I don’t have those… It’s not about the glamour and the makeup and the dresses and the red carpets—for me, it’s about being on a film set, in front of a camera, and being able to portray myself as any given character.”

On being inspired by JGL: “His performance in Mysterious Skin was the first performance I’d ever seen him do. I remember being so blown away by the vulnerability and the humanness of his performance.”

On learning from Pocahontas: “It’s true! If you listen to the lyrics they actually have incredibly valuable lessons for human beings to learn, and whenever I need a pick-me-up I just watch Pocahontas.”

    Woohoo! You know I consider Shailene to be one of my role models now,ever since I started reading & watching her interviews online. It’s amazing that she too,is in awe with another actor who inspires me and is my No.1 (or #2) celebrity crush – JGL! <3

    It's also pretty cool that she really does love "Pocahontas" that much.Basically,it's interesting because I keep thinking often that Shailene gives off the vibes of the title character herself very vividly! You know,what with Shai being a wild spirit at heart & a tree-hugger (she really is OBSESSED with the environment ; you can tell from the way she keeps gushing about how she loves it & expressing her concerns about protecting it in interviews) and wanting to live outdoors & directly be able to form a kinship with nature somehow. Whoa! If Shailene could be any Disney princess she wanted to be,she should choose Pocahontas,without a doubt. :D
