She had scoliosis as a teenager and had to wear a brace. åÊWhen she began having success as an actress her parents gave her three rules: stay the person you are, do well in school, and have fun. åÊShailene continues to follow those rules verbatim. åÊShe did her school work in-between takes in order to graduate on time with a 4.0 grade point average and says, “The second I wake up, I scream very loudly [sings to the tune of ‘Good Morning’ from ‘Singin’ in the Rain’], ‘Good morning! Good morning!'” she reveals. “And then I scream out, ‘Exciting day! Exciting day!’ I feel like it completely sets the mood for the whole day.” åÊ

She later remarked, “I fell into this business by accident. It wasn’t something I ever aspired to be: an actress. It just happened. It has evolved into an insane passion…a creative outlet. But nothing more. It’s my hobby… one of the ways I express myself as an artist. And the day it becomes a job… a career… I will quit.”It would be insincere to talk about Woodley without mentioning her passionate commitment to the environment and Life with a capital ‘L’. åÊShe is a bit of a hippie and has showed up for premiere’s barefoot. åÊShe has been seen drinking out of glass mason jars to avoid the damaging estrogen effects from drinking out of plastic.All it takes is to pick up that one piece of trash you pass everyday on your way to work. Or to turn the water faucet off when you’re brushing your teeth from afar. Or to compost. Or to buy 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Or to utilize vintage stores and secondhand markets. Or to fully devote yourself to only buying vegetables from local sources. It is remarkably easy to incorporate sustainable choices into our everyday, busy lives.Thought the actress claims she fell into the profession by accident, she did pay dues participating in over 40 commercial TV spots starting at the age of 4 including parts for Honda, Leapfrog, and Hertz. åÊWoodley made her screen debut in 1999åÊReplacing Dad. åÊShe was also on 6 episodes of the popular TV seriesåÊThe O.C.åÊin 2003. åÊA role however that she is famously known for is when inåÊ2008 she got cast as lead character in the popoular TV showåÊThe Secret Life of the American Teenager. åÊSecret LifeåÊhad a successful five year run for 121 episodes. åÊHowever, Woodley’s big break came with the feature length filmåÊThe Descendants also starring George Clooney. åÊShe was alsoåÊMary Jane Watson foråÊThe Amazing Spider-Man 2åÊbut all her scenes were left out.Though she is said to have a net worth of $5 million now, it is likely to soon change substantially. åÊThe next major mega hit in a long line of YA (young adult) popular novels turned movie mega sagas that started withåÊHarry Potter,åÊand continued with Twilight, and Hunger GamesåÊwill likely be withåÊDivergent. Opening weekend the film raked in $52 million. åÊDivergent’s lead character is Tris and Woodley was the first and only choice for the part following her performance inåÊThe Descendants. åÊIn fact, Woodley was considered for the part of Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games. åÊThe actress is said to received $250k to $500k for the part, which is normal and in line with what Daniel Radcliffe, Kristen stewart, and Jennifer Lawrence received for their part in their respective first installments. åÊThe first picture in an unproven franchise is more of a gamble and more of an opportunity for the actors. åÊHowever actor’s faces literally become irreplaceable for subsequent films where mega paydays come through. åÊHarry Potter just wouldn’t be the same without Daniel Radcliffe noråÊThe Hunger Games without Lawrence. åÊHowever, the producers that had settled on Woodley faced a snag with the un-materialistic Woodley. åÊAfter being locked in a contract for Secret Life she had no interest in doing a multi-year contract for a movie series claiming that if she lost interest creatively she was still obligated legally to complete her contract. åÊIt was Jennifer Lawrence that came in and through a series of emails convinced the rising star that it was worth it.However, all the fame and fortune that is sure to follow Woodley does not appear to be her reason for being in this game. åÊShe currently does not own a cell phone nor a have a permanent residence and says she is living the vagabond lifestyle, staying true to rule one of her parents three rules ‘stay the person you are.’ åÊTrue star power comes not from good looks but from the soul and it seems Shailene Woodley is a true star indeed!
