Shailene Woodley Covers InStyle: 4 Things We Learned
Shailene Woodley is full of surprises.
The 24-year-old star of The Divergent Series: Allegiant graces InStyle‘s March 2016 cover (on newsstands Feb. 12), heralding the magazine’s redesign. In the accompanying profile, Woodley speaks candidly about her passions in high school, falling in love “constantly” and more.
Here are just a few things we learned from the actress’ cover story:
1. Fashion is not her passion. Though her name has appeared on multiple best-dressed lists, Woodley’s wardrobe is fuss-free. “My style is dominated by my desire to be comfortable. Like I never want anything restricting my stomach. I don’t know how people wear jeans so often, because that band is just so tight!” the actress says. “I am much stronger in a pair of oxfords and a pair of pants versus a pair of heels and a fancy dress. I’m more of a pants kind of chick.”
2. Mind your own business, please. When you’re living in the public eye, it’s more than a little difficult to not be judged. But for Woodley, she doesn’t really care what the haters have to say. “I’ve come to realize it’s really none of our business what other people think about us and the more time and energy we spend obsessing about that, the more we’re trying to be a certain way for other people instead of ourselves,” she explains.
3. High school was too legit to quit. “I think a lot of people would have considered me a nerd. I took AP classes and was part of the pep-rally crew and the leadership council,” Woodley says. “I had so much spirit that people were probably like, ‘This girl needs to calm herself down.'”
4. She’s happily single. Though she’s not seeing anyone in particular, Woodley says, “I fall in love constantly! But finding someone to share my life with—it’s more difficult to fill those shoes. I’m very curious to see where my life ends up when it comes to partnership. I always think of my life as a pie. My pie is f–king fine. I’ve got the best pie! It’s so delicious. If you want to add some ice cream and s–t on top, you are welcome to join the party, but you don’t get to take a slice of my pie.”
