Celeb Discovery Story: I Bet You Don’t Know these Things About Shailene Woodley!

She claims she’s not a feminist, she makes her own toothpaste, she doesn’t have a house, she lives out of a suitcase, oh, and she’s one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses right now … she’s Shailene Woodley!

Shailene Woodley was born in Simi Valley, California and lived a pretty normal life. At fifteen she was diagnosed with scoliosis, a condition that curves your spine, but that didn’t stop Shailene. With her perseverance and the help of a back brace, she went on to land the lead role of Amy Juergens in the hit ABC Family show, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” just two years later, in 2008.

Woodley’s role in “American Teenager” is what catapulted her career, and took her from obscurity, to household name. Shortly after landing this lead role, she was cast as George Clooney’s daughter in the Academy Award nominated film; “The Descendants” which helped create a name for her across a larger audience.

After her success, Woodley was cast as the lead heroine in the young adult novel adaptation, “Divergent” an expected four-part film franchise, and the young adult romance novel adaptation, “The Fault in Our Stars.” Both book adaptations were huge successes, and only created a stronger fan base for Woodley.

She’s been nominated for a Golden Globe Award, a SAG Award, and just last night, took home three awards at the MTV Movie Awards. Her success isn’t slowing down anytime soon, as she’s signed on to do two more “Divergent” films, along with films alongside stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Nicolas Cage.

But, don’t let all of Shailene’s success fool you, she’s the furthest thing from a Hollywood Diva! Shailene actually, doesn’t even have a house! She’s very open about how she lives out of a suitcase, and doesn’t have a lot of possessions. To add to the list of “level headedness,” Shailene also makes her own toothpaste, and harvests her own natural water from springs!

Personal lifestyle aside, this hippie chick isn’t slowing down anytime soon, and lucky ClaimFame members now get the chance to experience this ride with her. And for all other casting call desires, make sure you stick to ClaimFame!
