Shailene Woodley Marie Claire Cover

shailene-woodley-marie-claire (5)Shailene Woodley told Marie Claire that she isn’t sure she believes in the concept of finding ‘The One': ‘I just haven’t met anyone where I was like, ‘Wow, I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you. I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever.

I was the latest bloomer there ever was. I was still playing with Barbies at 14 and didn’t have my first kiss until 15½. He had big, beautiful lips, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with those.

The whole social media thing is just a little too weird for me. We’re all such narcissists, and that’s what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons.’

On The Hollywood Reporter that compared Woodley to Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence: ‘I found so offensive and incredibly horrendous that the editor allowed something to be published that should have never been written, which says ‘is Shailene Woodley the next Jennifer Lawrence? Is Divergent going to be the next Hunger Games? Or is Divergent not going to do well, is she going to be the next Lily Collins?’ That is so fucked up.

  • Emma Stone

    That’s my girl, preaching random shit.

  • Mackintosh

    The more she opens her mouth the more I find myself shaking my head.

    • LOL

      true, im already sick of her & if Divergent does well she’ll be around much longer …

  • Dara

    I think she is trying to come off like she is a “normal girl” but the more she speaks out about certain topics (like this) it seems like she is just arrogant and kind of obnoxious.

    She’s gorgeous though lol

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I believe there is someone for everyone, I don’t believe you need to be with so many people. I really liked the planets/moons analogy part about social media.

  • Idk

    shes so annoying

  • Lily

    The social media thing is so true though. Twitter is a prime example of how we stroke our own egos by sharing pointless anecdotes and reflections that no one else really gives a shit about but ourselves. Twitter and instagram is narcissists haven.

    • Lily

      And I’m sure the reason that people think she’s annoying for saying stuff like this, are defensive over being called out as narcissists. Nobody likes being told the truth, especially if they’re in denial of that truth, but like, face it. Social media has conditioned us to be this way.

      • LOL

        People thinks she’s annoying because she talks too much. She has a pointless irrelevant opinion about every gets annoying.

          Actually she really does have a point. As a person that has been alive long enough to not be so connected, all the time, social media has changed everything. It used to be, if I wanted to talk to a friend, I would call them, and teh conversation would be there for the whole family to be heard, because the only phone we had was on the kitchen wall. Soon, we had cordless phones, and I would take it to my room, but I better have it on the charger before I passed out. Internet, what the hell was that? There was no email, we wrote a letter and put a stamp on it. Or it could wait till the next day to say it to the person. Allowed for a bit more thought, instead of sending off the fist thing that pops in our mind. My first computer didn’t even have a connection to the internet, modems were expensive, and only used by business anyway. and my Iphone is more powerful than that first computer ever was. She has a point, our society has lost some its..character. We tend to be less engaged with what is in front of us, and more with everything else, information overload, and god knows I’m just as guilty of it, Ive got twitter and facebook…

            I got my first cellphone when I was in 11th grade, after everyone else had already had theirs for years. Before having the phone I was SO social; I would always make an effort to talk with people, I would go out all the time, no one would be on their phones during dinner or on outings, I have so many great memories from then. Now, it’s so EASY to tune out and have quick and meaningless “conversations” with people, conversations that you won’t remember in a year, or post fleeting status updates that people simply scroll past. I deleted Facebook and Twitter after graduation, but the damage has been done… If I get a phone call now, 90% of the time I will hit “ignore” and that’s really sad to admit. Idk, I think young teens are setting themselves up for future loneliness by relying so much on social media. It’s supposed to keep us connected, but it seems to be doing the opposite.

            i totally agree. As an adult, I’ve seen the changes. I’ve lived them. Facebook is nice for me, its put me in contact with old friends and loved ones. But I’ve seen what kids put on their pages, and its pointless. I share pointless things too, so I am not judging, but there needs to be some self control. Took me 4 days to write a 2 page paper, cause I got too distracted. On top of that, I’ve seen so many groups of kids on campus, sitting around a table, looking at their phones. Not even talking. When I see my family, we have an agreement, phones go on a table, and unless we are taking pictures, they are not to be picked up.
