Kissing and telling — but only a little! After her big break in 2011’s Oscar winning film The Descendants, Shailene Woodley took some time off from acting to carefully select her next roles. Funny enough, the 22-year-old actress’ movies since then have all been about romance and relationships.
“That’s crazy! I never thought about that,” Woodley says in the April issue of Teen Vogue. “I haven’t had time to think about a relationship! I literally have not had a boyfriend in almost five years. I’ve never even hooked up with anybody I’ve worked on a movie with.”
But the same couldn’t be said for hooking up with a costar AFTER filming. “Well, that might have happened on something . . .” Woodley confessed with a laugh.
The actress didn’t divulge any further information on her love life. Her list of male costars, however, includes: Theo James (Divergent), George Clooney and Nick Krause (The Descendants), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Shiloh Fernandez (White Bird in a Blizzard), Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now), and Daren Kagasoff and Ken Baumann (TV series Secret Life of the American Teenager).
“After The Descendants, everybody was like, ‘You’ve got to ride the wave!’ And I was like, ‘You ride the wave and it eventually crashes on the shore. That doesn’t work out! I’m going to just sit here and paddleboard,'” Woodley explained. “I didn’t do a movie for two years because I didn’t read anything that was inspiring to me.”
Woodley wasn’t even that inspired when she was offered the role of Beatrice Prior in Divergent, the upcoming blockbuster adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s novel, and initially rejected the part in the mega-franchise. “I said no, and everybody was shocked,” the actress recalled. Fortunately for fans, Woodley changed her mind after having a heart-to-heart with fellow young franchise star (and now an Oscar winner) Jennifer Lawrence.
“I asked Jennifer Lawrence, ‘Are you happy with your choice to take on The Hunger Games?’ And she said she wouldn’t change it for the world,” Woodley revealed. “She told me, ‘There are some things — don’t make a sex tape, don’t do drugs, don’t do things in public — that you wouldn’t want other people judging you for. But this is the best decision you’ll ever make.'”
