Shailene ‘Women Must Support Women’

shailene-woodley-makeup (2)Shailene Woodley told The Daily Beast: ‘Oftentimes in films, even if you do have a really strong woman, there’s jealousy and envy among her sisters. So you’ll have this really empowered leader, who’s a chick, and then she has some sort of envious relationship with another woman in the movie.

And in ['Divergent'], there’s no envy and no jealousy-no ridiculous girl-fights. The Fault In Our Stars” actress went on to examine the responsibilities women have to each other. It’s such an important message to send out there in this age of feminism because, yes, men need to respect women, and women need to be the leads of films,

But at the same time, how do we expect men to respect women if women don’t respect women? A big theme in my life is sisterhood, and I think that this movie is a really great representation of that-of being there and supporting one-another without the malicious attacks that so often come in movies and media. So many women feel so much anger towards other women.’

Shailene admitted that she does not consider the sex a person is when it comes to falling in love: ‘I fall in love with human beings based on who they are, not based on what they do or what sex they are.’

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

  • cerenagee

  • Lily

    What a cool girl. I feel bad now, I judged her so hard when she was on The Secret Life (Worst. Show. Ever. Did a twelve year old write the dialogue?). I see now that it did not let her flex her acting skills, and she’s come out lately with such great statements. I’m definitely a fan now.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I definitely agree to an extent.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    so true ,there is such a huge double standard in the media.

    women get shit for everything they do and men don’t.

  • Ro.

  • Eva

    Loving her more each day.
