Shailene Woodley Was 'Moved' By 'Divergent'

Shailene Woodley Was 'Moved' By 'Divergent'

Shailene Woodley hangs ten inside the Sears Shop Your Way Digital Recharge Lounge on Saturday afternoon (January 19) in Park City, Utah.

The 21-year-old actress, who premiered her new film The Spectacular Now just the night before, picked up a few items for her younger brother.

“After I read the book, I was really profoundly moved, and it’s really metaphorical for things that are going on today, specifically things that I’m passionate about and things that I want to make public and things that I want to educate people on,” Shailene recently shared with MTV, while chatting about Divergent.

She continued, “My whole thing, to be honest, is I never wanted to do big films. I’ve been acting for 16 years, and it was never something that I wanted to do, to be in a big blockbuster film, especially one that was similar to Hunger Games or Twilight. You know, one that had a huge pre-existing fan base and one that would carry on for multiple years.”

Shai also stopped by the New Era Chalet at Village At the Lift and had fun with the decorative cubes as she took photos with her green cap.

FYI: Shailene is wearing a Marni cardigan.
