Shailene Woodley is striking in this new feature for the latest issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands July 16th!
The 21-year-old Spectacular Now star opened up to the mag about what she would do if she weren’t acting, the idea of “fame,” and her biggest struggles. Check it:
On what she struggles with: “I struggle in real life trying to balance my natural connection to the earth and the somewhat materialistic side of the industry I am in…Anything over a certain amount of money freaks me out.”
On the word ‘celebrity’: “I don’t use it to describe myself. In high school, a lot of my friends didn’t know I was an actor because I didn’t talk about it. They would come to school and be like, ‘Wait, were you on My Name is Earl last night?’ It was something I kept under wraps because I did it for myself and not for anybody else.”
On what she would do without acting: “If I didn’t have acting, I would be just as happy. I would probably be an herbalist, or maybe I would open a fruit stand on a Hawaiian island.”
