Shailene Woodley: Twilight is so ‘toxic,’ it will never ‘help this world evolve’

Shailene Woodley

I realize the wall-to-wall coverage of Shailene Woodley seems exhausting. Divergent hits theaters in ten days, so the onslaught isn’t unexpected. Summit really wants this franchise to turn in Twilight-sized numbers. I completely get why Summit needs another runaway young-adult success. Who could blame them? The awkward part of this new adaptation is that their new star is dissing Summit’s previous pet franchise. Shailene covers the April issue of Teen Vogue. The headline blares, “Hollywood rebel,” which is something to consider. What makes a rebel in today’s starlet realm? Many young actresses are pretending to be different from each other, and the effort often feels counterproductive.

Shailene truly appears to be unlike her cohorts. She has yet to complain about fame. She hasn’t been caught smoking pot on a balcony or apartment stoop. She claims to be a child of nature, which is where she fashions her own homemade weapons. I’m not knocking her for that, really. Someone needs to teach me how to make homemade pepper spray. More importantly, I need to learn to not let it go off in my own pocket. I think Shailene could help me. She may not be the next Jennifer Lawrence, but she could assist in such important survival matters. Sadly, Shailene is too busy dissing Summit’s main tentpole. She walks all over Twilight in this interview. She does speaks the truth, but it’s still awkward when she’s shilling for the same studio. Here are some excerpts:

Aren’t all of Shailene’s movies about romance? “That’s crazy! I never thought about that. 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.” [Pause] Well, that might have happened on something …”

Staying true to herself: “I was once told by a studio that I needed to make my look more cosmopolitan, that I needed to create a persona. I looked at them and said, ‘You just told me I wasn’t good enough to be myself. And that is not OK.’”

About that other YA franchise:Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”

On her career: “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. I didn’t do a movie for two years because I didn’t read anything that was inspiring to me.”

She said no to Divergent at first: “I said no, and everybody was shocked.”

JLaw talked her into it: “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. 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.’”

[From Teen Vogue]

Shailene has repeated this same Jennifer Lawrence story in several interviews. I included it here for no reason in particular except to show that she really wants to ride the JLaw wave. As opposed to the wave she claims to have resisted riding.

I wonder which co-star Shailene is referring to when she mentions a hookup? Don’t make me crack a George Clooney joke. That’s just wrong. Surely it’s not Theo James. Summit would love it if Shailene and Theo got together. Here are some photos from the Toronto premiere. I haven’t seen the movie, but these photos show zero chemistry whatsoever.

    She so needs to get new talking points OR her microphone cut off

    Mind you she isnt wrong about how awful twilight is…. But she is so grating and sanctimonious

    • Liv says:

      I really liked her in The Descendants, but if she doesn’t stop talking I’m going to officially hate her. Shut up!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Shut up!! Agree totally.

      • V4Real says:

        I barely know anything about this young woman and I’m already sick of her. Shut up is right.

        And Bella wasn’t trying to kill herself in Twilight. She was just going to the extreme becasue she saw that as a way for Edward to appear to her ….and shut up V. I can’t believe I just said that. Hangs head in shame.

      • Anna says:

        V4REAL – I think in New Moon she does think about killing herself? That or she knew what she was doing could kill her and didn’t care. Either way, she was “okay” with suicide.

      • V4Real says:

        But remember every time she committed a life threatening act she would see Edward and that’s why she continued to do it. When she jumped on the motorcycle with that guy, Edward appeared to her, when she rode the bike that Jacob fixed, she saw Edward and when she cliff dived, she did it to see Edward. It stemmed from part one. When those guys were bothering her Edward just showed up out of no where to rescue her. When he left her in New Moon, she intentionally put herself in dangerous situations hoping he would just show-up like he did in Twilight. But I agree she wasn’t too concern about if her actions killed her or not and darn it I’m doing it again, thanks Anna. :)

      • Anna says:

        In my mind, it doesn’t matter why she continued to do it, just that she was willing to risk suicide. So in that sense, yep. Shailene is 100% right.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I haven’t seen Twilight. Isn’t it about vampires and/or werewolves? I mean, why does she expect it to reflect healthy relationships? Lol

      • T.C. says:

        She is so full of it. No one signsing up for Spider-Man, and YA franchises is a rebel. She’s just a regular starlet who wants to be rich and famous.

        However I agree with her 100% on the toxic nature of the Bella and Edward relationship. That girl did nothing but stay in her room for months then did dangerous suicidal things just because her boyfriend left her. I would never let any daughter of mind read trash like that.

      • JessMa says:

        T.C. I didn’t exactly get my mom’s permission to read Forever by Judy Blume. Make something forbidden and it will become enticing. Instead of book banning and censorship, give your daughter some credit. Most teens can separate fantasy from reality. I don’t buy into the mindset that girls are so naive and fragile they must be sheltered and protected from everything. I am sure that your daughter will not use a book about a girl, a werewolf, and a vampire as a blueprint for her love life.

      • Addison says:

        I have been wanting her to stop talking since two years ago.

        And honey your Divergent movie is not going to have any effect on the world either. (Please, rolls eyes) I saw the first Hunger Games and was like, Blah. Why does this girl ask the girl who is in the movie about adults being okay with killing children for advice. Huh?

        Go away already!

        By the way JessMa your comment about …a girl, a werewolf and a vampire… got me thinking about an great show on BBC. Being Human. Gotta track down the rest of the videos for home viewing. I only have the first season.

      • JessMa says:

        Addison, I actually watch the U.S./Canadian version of Being Human and this season has been amazing. I haven’t seen the original UK show. I love the premise. A ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf as roommates. The vampire, Aiden, is so handsome. I would watch him in just about anything.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Bella constantly talks about killing herself, about wanting to die without Edward. The crap about “hallucinating Edward” isn’t consistent and when she’s not tempting fate she’s wishing she was dead. There’s some sort of black hole and she can’t wait to die. Masking the suicide attempts doesn’t make them not suicide attempts. Twilight is the worst-written, most misogynistic writing of the current era.

    • Dani2 says:

      +1 to all of you guys, she really does seem harmless but I feel like she’s been around for AGES, when in fact, she only really started doing promo for Divergent last week. I can’t explain why I find her so tiresome.

    • Cleo says:

      I think someone who deliberately makes themselves shorter than the guy they’re posing with, shouldn’t be preaching about what they think ‘evolved,’ is. Check out that set above. She greets the lead actor in the film, and they are eye to eye, with her having the edge height wise, then when posing side by side, in a ‘together’ pose, she does the ‘ol’ bend the knee and cock the head,’ to appear like the smaller female when standing next to a man who’s shorter. Sad.

    • Okie says:

      The end of the second book is the resolution that Bella will become a vampire. To become a vampire, one must die. Bella dies to be with Edward, her first boyfriend, who was almost a century older than she was and used to sneak into her room at night to watch her sleeping. These are just the beginning of my issues with the books. (FWIW, I didn’t like The Hunger Games, either, so I know my YA opinions aren’t popular.)

  2. blue marie says:

    Yeah, I think Summit is trying to make them happen, like they did with Kristen and Rob in hopes of selling the movie. I think Routh should have waited until after the movie to release the 3rd book because that book kind of ruined the whole thing for me. I might see it but probably not in the theater. Shailene is pretty harmless, although at times she sounds a bit too smug but that’s probably her age. (hopefully)

    • Memme says:

      I agree with you about the book and the movie. I really liked Divergent and was excited when I heard it was being made into a movie. I was disappointed with Allegiant- it left me feeling MEH about the series as a whole and WTF about the ending in particular. I am no longer *excited* to see the film, but I will. I will see it in theaters because my friend who still hasn’t read the last book, is still excited.

  3. Lou says:

    she’s very pretty, but what is that outfit??

  4. Meh, agree with her on Twilight–I didn’t like Bella’s character. I mean, I’m pretty introverted–beyond you guys, my family, and my one friend from school, I don’t really talk to anyone. I don’t really like going anywhere–most people my age hang out at the parking lot in Walmart or the mall–I don’t like doing stuff like that.

    But come on–was it really necessary to have Bella pining over Edward for EIGHT months…..because her sparkly boyfriend left? God.

    I was over Twilight—as a whole–by the time New Moon came out on dvd.

    I won’t be watching Divergent, because they’ve had way too many YA book adaptions into film. Too many. It’s oversaturated, and I, as their target audience is bored with it all. Come up with some new ideas…

    • meryl says:

      But he wasn’t just her “boyfriend”, he was her “soul-mate” :)
      What I didn’t like was when Bella took him back without any objections on her part. That was the wrong message – guy walks all over you, lies to you, leaves you and when he wants to be back together girl is supposed to be grateful.

      • Nicolette says:

        Edwards’ character left because he wanted to give Bella a chance at a ‘normal’ life. He felt he posed too much of a danger to her, and was putting her into situations that could be detrimental. It wasn’t something he wanted to do, it was something he felt he had to do to protect her.

        As far as Shailene’s comment about it not helping the world evolve, she needs to get over herself. It’s a story, just like many many others. It’s there for entertainment and nothing else. And for all the negativity directed at it, it was a huge financial success. No doubt Summit would love to repeat that.

      • FLORC says:

        This girl has severe Foot In Mouth Syndrome. She will be Detrimental to her own career….

      • Nerd Alert says:

        No, come on. Twilight is damaging to young girls. We pine over men who leave us for months? We wish we were dead? We let them walk all over us? We voluntarily shirk our identities for them? That’s what girls should want to be? Make no mistake, Bella had no personality so young girls could put themselves in her shoes. Straight from the author’s mouth. Being a financial success doesn’t make it any less of a crapfest. The author is a terrible person, especially to her disappointed fans. It is poorly written, misogynistic, Mormon propaganda. Period.

  5. Lark says:

    I like Shailene, but I kind of think it’s in poor taste for a younger star to rip into a specific film (someone like Bill Murray can do so)…..Even if it’s in poor taste though, the girl is on the mark about Twilight being toxic (although Twilght was Summit’s baby so that was another mark in the poor taste column). They are definitely trying to “push” a romance (or the rumor of one) with Theo James (Lainey said the photos she got had Theo tagged as her “alleged” boyfriend & some of the things both have said) imo.

    She seems like such a hippie, and she’s mentioned something about being scared of “invasive fans and media”….so I’m kind of wondering if she’s going to regret doing this series, signing up for MJ in Spiderman, and her other mainstream stuff. She may be into the material or the people involved or think it’s a necessary step to keep funding her indies, but it definitely has primed her into being turned into an “it” girl.

  6. Amanda says:

    Ugh I’m so sick of the Twilight trashing. The series is over! Enough already!

    Further, Divergent is very relationship oriented as well — not in an unhealthy way but it’s still peddling the perfect man to tweens. Also the ending of the third book was truly awful and I will not be seeing these films because I don’t want to relive it. If she wants to do comparisons, at least Twilight knew it wasn’t high literature and had a pleasing ending.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    She is completely right about Twilight.

  8. Felice says:

    While I’m not a Twilight person,

    I didn’t realize that I was watching Nutcracker here because all I see is the dance of the special snowflake.

  9. eliza says:

    And……………who ever thought Twilight was part of evolution?

    I certainly am not into that kind of movie BUT it is for ENTERTAINMENT. If I want to “evolve” I do not go to the movies. I am there to be entertained for 120min or so. Period.

  10. Anname says:

    -Her TV series was a far worse example for young girls (if we are looking for “messages”), as it was based in reality, not the fantasy world of vampires.
    -We have heard this theory before, about how bad Twilight is for young girls, but I don’t know a single person who sees it as more than a fun silly fantasy story. There is no message. Even the hardcore fans, as crazy as they seem to be, aren’t espousing it as a guide for romance. It’s is pretty obvious the idea of vampire love is different than regular human love in the story.
    - There is something very weird about shading a franchise built around a love story in order to defend a story about 16 yr olds killing each other. I think my kids are smart enough to see there is no great “message” in either one. There are good and bad examples in both stories.
    - Not a good idea to anger the hardcore Twi fans, they are rather loud.

  11. Alina says:

    So the joint smoking JLaw tells other people not to do drugs. LOL

    I hope Shailene knows that without Twilight and the young adult fantasy romance book->movie hype they´ve started, there wouldn´t be a Divergent movie now. Same goes for Hunger Games, Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments, Vampire Academy and whatever. Like it or not, but without the big Twilight success no one would have produced the other films and all the young actors wouldn´t be there where they are now.

  12. neha says:

    I don’t really blame her for the Twilight comment – I doubt that she brought it up organically. I’m sure that the interviewer brought up both The Hunger Games and Twilight, because they are the to-go YA films.

  13. Olivia says:

    Reportedly she hooked up with her costar Shiloh Fernandez, one of the guys in the running for Edward, at Sundance last year. Oh the irony.

    Shailene really has no room to talk since her tv show was no better than twilight in terms of a bad example for young females.

    That said, I like her fine. Like so many before her, she will learn to keep her mouth shut or to not care if people don’t like her.

  14. decorative item says:

    Oh, please! Most of the crap that falls out of Hollywood is toxic. You are being paid by the same collective whore, so you are in no position to judge anything.
    P.S. She’s right about Twilight.

    • Yeah I mean…Twilight isn’t any more/less toxic than most of the romantic comedies I see, which encourage men to maintain clichéd viewed of women and perpetuate the idea that women are all but worthless without a man by our sides.

      • ~Z~ says:

        Agree! I don’t think it will ever end.
        How are you kitten♥? Thank God February is over!

      • Is this Zig Zag Zoey?
        Hi, my sweets.
        They said snow tonight into tomorrow though :( Booo!!

      • ~Z~ says:

        Yup! ♥
        I know…..
        Booooooooooo is right!
        Hopefully only an inch, and then PLEASE MELT!

      • Cleo says:

        Preach. I watched about 5 minutes of that Jennifer Aniston Gerard Butler movie Bounty Hunter on cable a couple years ago and couldn’t believe the sexist, trite, craapola — which culminates in faux brawny (actually bloat-y) Gerry Butler, tipping Aniston over his shoulder, and dumping her in a trunk, all the while she flails away ineffectually. landing weak little blows on his back with her fists and screaming. I mean UGHxInfinity. This is the same woman who railed about how Sex in the City was so awful because it was about women trying to find men in NYC, yet she’s playing this damsel in distress who gets stuffed in a trunk while she squeaks help.
        If women are going to go around trying to call out other women and their stories re what’s not evolved, not feminist enough, or dangerous – at least have your own house in order and don’t be a hypocrite. This girl works with the same studios that churn out what she thinks is trash and dangerous – how about passing, and working for someone else?

        Also, I just read she dated Shiloh Fernandez, who is on record as being famously miffed he didn’t get the Edward part, and held grudges against both Catherine Hardwicke and Kristen Stewart for going with Robert Pattinson – and we have his girlfriend (or ex) now trashing the film in public? Interesting. I wonder if she had these same spirited conversations with her boyfriend and asked him what he thought – and why he wanted to do that shite? lol

        Lastly, if you’re going to make comments, try reading the books. I’m not saying Twilight as reading material is good, it’s not. It has a captivating formulaic romance going for it, and that’s it. But to me, she sounds like she’s read 1001 internet comments on message boards, and is just regurgitating what the herd has been mooing about for years. There is no suicide, no one tries to kill themselves — except Edward when he thinks Bella is no longer alive (Myers stealing directly from Romeo & Juliet here) – does Bella get morose and sad and questions reality when he disappears. Yes. Because duh, she’s met a Vampire who will never die, but as someone else says, she moves forward and comes out of it. I’d like someone else to tell me how else you’d write about a tumultuous teen/adolescent romance. As a rule, they’re not known for being carefree and lightweight affairs of the heart…they get tagged as the opposite.

  15. jess says:

    People who hate twilight are just as annoying as the people who love it. Ive never read the books but saw the movies and i think people take it way too seriously. From the previews divergent looks boring. I doubt it will be as big as twilight Or hunger games.

  16. cro-girl says:

    We’re all here reading celebrity gossip, I don’t think anyone should talk about Twilight.

  17. tracy says:

    Hope she realizes with Twilight, she would not have a movie to talk about. The same audience that loved Twilight, might just want to love her movie. I hope she has not lost some new fans. I seriously doubt her movie is ground breaking or will help the world evolve.

    • mom2two says:

      Exactly. The Twilight movies and books were not my favorite at all but without Twilight, there would be no Divergent or other YA movies/books where a somehow special girl has to choose between two guys.
      I did not see any chemistry between her and Theo James in the trailer of the movie or the pictures. It could also be that he’s almost thirty as well, so he just reads as too old for her no matter what they try to do. Summit would love nothing then to have these two get together.

  18. K-Rock says:

    Here we go again *severe eye roll*. Not every form of entertainment has to contribute to the evolution of our world. Mind you I’ve never seen a full Twilight movie but I get the gist and I’ve seen clips here and there so I’m not judging the movies either way, just saying not everything has to be “evolving”. Sometimes you want empty calories.

  19. Celia says:

    She was also dissing Hunger Games in an interview last year in order to praise Divergent in comparison so dissing another female centric franchise fro her studio is not anything new from her. She also auditioned for Katniss which makes it even more ironic. Don’t know if she also auditioned for Bella, but I wouldn’t be surprised since they saw pretty much every actress in Hollywood around her age for the role.

  20. Tig says:

    Yes, I would have loved for the interviewer to ask her “And the guidelines for non-toxic relationships in Secret Life are-??”. I watched that show for Molly R for a few episodes, and just ugh. I agree- zip chemistry bet her and Theo.

  21. shannon says:

    I don’t love her, but don’t hate either. I totally agree w/what she said about Twilight and her hair is giving me some serious envy right now.

  22. Jaderu says:

    “I didn’t do a movie for two years because I didn’t read anything that was inspiring to me.”

    “I said no, and everybody was shocked.” (to Divergent)

    I’m sorry, but who is this woman? She’s not Angelina, she’s not Meryl. She’s not even on JLaw’s tier yet. I find if hard to believe that she is advanced enough in her career to decide what work she’s going to do because she isn’t inspired or she’s worried about taking on a franchise.
    Anne Hathaway and Jessica Beil even had to audition for Catwoman. Give me a break Shailene.
    At first I just thought she was a harmless tree hugger. Now I think she’s just a smug, arrogant little twit.

  23. ZAK says:

    I think she will learn to shut up eventually.

    I think it’s funny when people call pot a drug and not alcohol. Alcohol is worst than pot, it’s caused way more deaths. I’d rather people smoke pot than drink alcohol.

  24. kimbers says:

    Wow I used to take her interviews with a grain of salt, but now she’s just ANNOYING!!!

  25. Amanda_M87 says:

    She is right about twilight bit still, I really think she needs to learn what to say and when or else people are going to get really annoyed with her.

  26. HHazel says:

    Her talking smack about another franchise isn’t something she is unfamiliar with. She has been doing this all along to try and elevate Divergent and make it seem better. She need to learn how to talk about her movie without trying to bring other ones down.

    And they are totally going the twilight route with the promo for this movie to get the crazy fangirls invested.

  27. Sarah says:

    lol i have mocked twillight and twi-hards for as long as i can remember but this woman…her movie is marketed exactly like it and she plays along and fuels the speculation. she gushes about her co star in every interview and talks about the off the charts chemistry she feels and everybody on the set allegedly felt.
    ridiculous woman.

    • Cleo says:

      Hahaha, proving she’s read every word of the Twilight press and the stuff Catherine Hardwicke the Twilight director used to say constantly about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Girl, we see you. It becomes even more of a ‘hmmm’ moment when you find out she used to be with the actor Shiloh Fernandez who wanted desperately to play Edward Cullen, because Kristen and Catherine had to have Robert in the role. lol

  28. Irishserra says:

    I hate that I find her so annoying. I should appreciate that she is different but somehow the way she goes about it grates on me. Sure, Bella is a terrible role model, but it’s just a fictional story in which an entire mass of young women found familiarity and camaraderie. She wasn’t conjured up to be a role model. I hate when people take something that was created merely for amusement so seriously and try to make issues where there are none.

    Does she have such high expectations for Divergent? Again, it’s a semi-interesting fictional story that feels very much like Hunger Games. Some will like it; some won’t. Hoopty-Doo!

  29. lulu says:

    wasn’t she in secret life of an American teenager? is she sure she wants to trash other’s work?

    • Tig says:

      See upthread- quite a few of us have made the same observation- can’t remember the name of her character, but didn’t she end up with the father of the baby that came about bec they had one time sex that she wasn’t ready for/was a virgin or something along those lines? Ugh again.

  30. Franny Days says:

    I wonder where exactly she lives. Maybe in a tree house somewhere?

    • Cleo says:

      Actually, she’s quite literally wrong, because none of what she says happens in Twilight, happens:

      “She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! ”

      Nope. That doesn’t happen at all. Bella never tries to kill herself nor does she exclaim she wants to. I think what she is referencing is that after Edward leaves Bella (his rationale for leaving: he is protecting her, giving her a chance at a normal human life), Bella starts wondering if Edward existed at all. Because Edward recognized that her humanity made her life fragile, he cautioned her a lot when he was with her. So Bella found when she did daredevil type things, ride motorcycles, cliff dive, etc., that was the only time, he would appear (apparition-like) cautioning her to be careful.

      In other words, say the books are not good, and feel free to say how you think they negatively impact society or whatever (eyeroll) – I love a good discussion, but it’s clear to me, she’s just regurgitating what others have said and quite possibly hasn’t read/seen the books/film, because what she says is inaccurate and doesn’t happen.

      I’ll give Twilight which was not a good books series, but was a good formulaic love story, a passing grade for the following: rather than think Bella and the love story was an awful role model for girls, I thought it was great. Reasons being: It’s clear Meyers was writing about sex, and teen sex at that whether she admits that or not, lol. There’s one major theme that you can take from her books, this is a boy who puts the needs of the girl he loves above all else, even if it means not having what he wants because he doesn’t want her life ruined. I think that’s an attitude more boys should have when it comes to young girls.

  31. Lucy says:

    Great interview. I absolutely LOVE that she dared to diss Twilight. Actually, that wasn’t even dissing. That was telling the truth. And the reason she keeps talking about JLaw is because they keep asking her about it. And, as opposed to most people in here, I hope she doesn’t shut up nor disappear.

  32. lunchcoma says:

    She’s not wrong, but is Divergent any better?

  33. I Choose Me says:

    Something, something Twilight. Blah, blah *feels superior* Yada, yada *name drop*.

    I didn’t mind her I’m in love with Nature spiel and was prepared to like her because I thought she was pretty good in the Descendants but now I just want to Fedex her a case of STFU.

  34. LadyS says:

    Why is this girl already setting herself up to be mocked? She’s to cock-sure. Oh boy!!

  35. Marianne says:

    If thinks characters like Bella are awful, then she shouldn’t have taken on the role of Aimee in The Spectacular now.

  36. St says:

    Her biggest problem is that she is just boring. They push and push her as some new teen superstar. Like she is some new Kristen Stewart and J. Lawrence. Kinda reminds me when they pushed Taylor Kitch and Alex Pettyfer as new leading men. And then public rejected them.

  37. womanaman says:

    I just saw a trailer and I have no idea what this movie is about so I thought that they say “I’m die virgin” and it took me awhile to realize that they say “divergent”… don’t laugh at me, English is not my first language:P.

  38. Apple Love says:

    Seriously….she’s getting a bit annoying. Only about 98% of the famous population are not annoying though. The fact that she really doesn’t have a mobile phone and she eats clay are just some of the things that I somehow know about her. She needs to talk to Sandra Bullock about how to promote herself as an intelligent human being without being so obnoxious.

  39. Porsha says:

    She was in the new spider man movie coming out as Mary Jane and they cut all her scenes from the movie – the character was removed

  40. Just Me says:

    Summit is behind this film? The same guys that did the Twi Series? I could very well be wrong, but this feels like a push to fill the rebellious shoes Kristen Stewart left behind. So many shades of Kristen in this girl’s recent interviews. Summit made a lot of money off that girl, and if the blinds are true – they orchestrated that whole (supposed) PR Romance between Rob & Kristen. It would only make sense for them to try to draw in/appeal to the fanbase Kristen left behind at the end of the Twi Series. Either that, or this girl is just young. Either, or – I don’t really care – but she seems harmless.

    As someone who’s read both the Twilight and Divergent series, all I can say is: Pot. Kettle. Black.
    Both are awful writing and trite. But it’s YA and it’s supposed to be harmless entertainment for underage kids. So shut up and make money like we all know you’re dying to do, Woodley.

    Her interviews just prove she will never be a hollywood star. She could have a good career because she is talent but seriously someone need to tell to shut up. All her PR effort is going down the drain with everything she saying. She is proving to be very immature. I think everybody thinks low of twilight but bad mouthing on a magazine isn’t not doing her any favors as last year she did the same with Katniss more than once. The studio or her PR probably call her out on that. She auditioned for katniss and she got her role on divergent and TASM2 without auditioning. She need to be careful she barely began and people are already annoyed by her. She still has to ptomote fault with the stars. The best thing that happened to her was get dumped from TASM2. Imagine having her promoting 3 movie until july? and her PR need to stop trying to make her the next jlaw will only be bad as she obviously very different and jen set the bar too high.
