As far as the US Presidental Election goes, Shailene Woodley is over her grieving period.
The Big Little Lies actress, who shares the February 2017 cover of Elle magazine with her co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Zoe Kravitz, opened up about politics in the glossy, and how she knew exactly why Donald Trump was going to win the election.
“It’s hard to talk about politics in a Hollywood world. I learned that really quickly,” she shared. “But after the California primaries, when Bernie Sanders lost—and I’m not saying he should have won—I knew that Trump was going to win.”
“Because I’d been on the ground for months, and we would be in small cities in America and big cities in America, and Bernie would get tens of thousands of people at his rallies. And then Trump would come and he’d get the same numbers,” Shailene adds, “But Hillary would only have a few hundred people at her fundraisers.”
She continued, “It doesn’t matter how much more you have in your bank; if 50,000 people show up to your opponents’ rallies and you only have a few hundred people, it says a lot about what the people of America are ready to do. I grieved all of this months ago, where- as most people are grieving it now.”
