Shailene Woodley InStyle June Cover

shailene-woodley-instyle-juneShailene Woodley fought hard to get The Fault In Our Stars role. She told In Style she wrote a fan letter to the author of the original book, John Green: ‘It changed my whole life and put things in perspective. I realized I was good at being outwardly positive because that’s how I am by nature. But internally? I was so mean to myself.

Realizing I needed to make a shift was a big moment for me. ‘F**k you, insecurity. F**k you, lack of confidence!’ When I finally realized I have to live life for myself and not for anyone else is when I started being more generous and kind and grateful, I was able to give back more.’ On weight loss:

‘I look at pictures of me with long hair and I think, ‘Who is that person?’ Even my voice and the way I hold myself has changed. I’m in a place where I feel healthier than I’ve ever been, and my body is exactly where it wants to be. I feel like I’m a woman. My boobs shrank. No one tells you that when you lose weight. No bra, no problem!”

On scoliosis: ‘My friends and I named my brace Casey. I took it off to eat, to go on dates, and to shower. It was uncomfortable, but I thought, ‘I can complain, or I can embrace it, literally, and move on.”

      I used to like her. Until she started talking about her Vagina. It’s not that I dislike her now. I just avoid reading what she says. It makes me uncomfortable. She says some out of the ordinary things. She’s very different. I used to like it. Now I hide. HeHe.

        I mean…..I respect that everyone has their own opinion but I fail to see why you needed to come on to a post of the person you say you try to avoid reading about and then decide to pick me to reply to just to tell me you’re not really a fan? Clearly I am a fan, so you finding the time to tell me of all people that you’re not that into her anymore comes across as if you’re just trying to pick some sort of fight with me?

        • Tash

          No no. I apologize. I never meant to do that. I had just been thinking that. But I wasn’t trying to diss her nor do I dislike her. I was just joking about the fact that she says some things that make me cringe a little & get uncomfortable. But she’s very open & that’s not easy. So it’s a good thing. It just makes me shy. I tend to interact with people on here. I don’t always go for a fight or just go back & forth with comments about a post. I guess I’m just different. I just chat. Most people on here are so hostile though & always think there’s an agenda.

            Haha I apologise then. I’m always assuming people are just looking to start an argument because 9 times out of 10 they usually are anyways.

          • Tash

            No. I just like making friends. Call me weird *puts hands up in the air* :) It’s sad though, were so used to negativity that we naturally look for it. Lately I’ve been getting heat for being friends with people. It’s completely insane! So I get told off because I’m not a bitch 24/7?? HaHa, these forums are filled with such hostile individuals. I’ve been trying to fill it with being more pleasant to each other & just interacting & not just being celeb obsessed. I have a hunch it will make some happier people. Sorry if I bothered you. I like to go around spreading love *shrugs*.
