Let’s be honest, Shailene Woodley is everywhere these days. From booking movie roles to appearing on red carpets, it seems like Hollywood has found it’s new “it” girl in Shailene. But she’s not just your average young Hollywood actress.
Appearing in the new issue of Flaunt Magazine, Shailene talks about her very alternative lifestyle. “I think everything about my lifestyle is fairly alternative. I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils.”
And that’s not the only things she makes herself. Shailene goes on to admit she makes her own medicines! “I make my own medicines. I don’t get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It’s an entire lifestyle. It’s appealing to my soul.” Wow! Do you guys think you could do that?
It’s crazy to think she has time for all of that when she’s been so busy filming multiple movies. In the past year alone Shailene has filmed the newly released The Spectacular Now, White Bird in a Blizzard, Divergent, and is currently filming The Fault in Our Stars in which she plays a cancer patient. For her new role Shai recently cut her long hair, but clearly these photos were taken pre-haircut.

Despite this major transformation, Shailene told Flaunt that she doesn’t feel the need to be a method actor. ““I’m not one of those actors who feels like they need to get in character, to do any sort of method acting situations. For me it’s all about learning my lines, showing up on time, and professionally listening to what others are saying, and then authentically and truthfully reacting off of their expressions. So, it’s easy to drop roles, because I don’t feel like I acquire them to begin with.”
Well, it looks like her strategy is working because Shailene’s been earning rave reviews for her acting skills. She even won a Special Jury Award for Acting at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Plus, with all of her exciting films coming up, we know Shailene is going to have a long and successful career in this business. Personally, we are counting down the days until Divergent is released! Did you see the teaser trailer?
