Shailene Woodley pointed out her brother-sister chemistry with actor Ansel Elgort in ‘Divergent’ helped the romantic angle in ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’ Shailene was curious about kissing her own on-screen brother.
She told Hollywood Reporter: ‘It wasn’t that weird because I’ve always sort of wondered what it’d be like kissing my brother.. There’s something really beautiful about working with someone and working with them again and again and again, because the more you get to know somebody on a personal level, the more free you feel artistically.
I think that if Ansel and I hadn’t known each other from Divergent, our relationship in this movie would not be what it is, because we didn’t have to go through the rehearsal phase of getting to know one another, becoming comfortable with one another.”
Shailene Woodley revealed to David Letterman that she eats clay: ‘I do eat clay, yeah. Do you? Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials, that are not necessarily the best for you.’
Have YOU ever thought of kissing your brother?
She gets her clay from a company that sources it from Colorado, and eats about a teaspoon each day, in addition to making her toothpaste from the stuff.’ Is Shailene a feminist? ‘No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.
With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either. We have to have a fine balance.
My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism. I don’t know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy. And ‘This girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.’ And it’s just so silly and heartbreaking in a way.
It’s really neat to see: there’s that new Judd Apatow [sic] movie coming out, The Other Woman, and that looks really good because I think it’s really neat that it shows women coming together and supporting each other and creating a sisterhood of support for one another versus hating each other for something that somebody else created.
So even though what they’re coming together for is to bring down a man: ‘Yeah, but they create a sisterhood. And he did something wrong, and they’re, you know. They’re going to go after him for it. I think it’s great.’
