With two huge movies (Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars) dominating the box office over the past couple of months, actress Shailene Woodley has been having a pretty good year so far.
The star glams up for the newest issue of Vanity Fair, where she rocks a sparkly red dress and bold red lips on the cover of their July 2014 issue. Inside, Shailene opens up about the pressures of acting, as well as what it was like working with George Clooney.
After making a big name for herself after her role in The Descendants alongside Clooney, Shailene was beginning to feel the pressure of continuing to be in successful projects. “Somebody came to me and said, ‘I can’t wait to see what you do next.’” Shailene explains. “I took that as pressure—that I had to live up to somebody else’s expectations. There were a few months where I was like, ‘I don’t want to act anymore.’ And then I got over it and realized it’s none of my business what other people think of me.”
As for working with George on the movie, Shailene reveals: “He has been an angel in my life for many reasons.He knew everyone’s name on set,” she says. “He treated everyone as an equal and everyone got his warmth.”
When it comes to dating co-stars, Shailene has admitted that she’s a little hesitant to do so: “I’m never going to say never. I love acting, but I also really love nature and most actors don’t want to get dirty.”
However, Shailene has formed a special bond with her Divergent and The Spectacular Now co-star, Miles Teller. “I look at Miles and, like, I’m sort of Julia Roberts in the same way she is to George. Their relationship I could see being our relationship in 20 years, and that really is special.”
