Shailene Woodley debuts shorter hair, slams 'Secret Life of an American Teenager'
Shailene Woodley's MTV Video Music Awards slicked back hair was just a taste of what her "The Fault in Our Stars" 'do looks like. The 21-year-old was spotted on the movie's Philadelphia set sporting a much more Hazel-like hair style than what was previously revealed.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Flaunt, Woodley opens up about another project that gives insights into teenage life, but was one she didn't feel as much of a kinship with as with "Fault." The project is "The Secret Life of an American Teenager," which helped cement Woodley's popularity and aired its series finale earlier this year.
"I didn't like it because if it started to change, I had no control over it. It's like anything in life, whether you're an actor or you work in an insurance office, if you want to be able to leave your job, it's nice to be able to leave your job. But when you're in a contract, unfortunately, you can't do that," Woodley says of her time on "Secret Life."
She continues, "I'm extremely grateful for it; it was a fantastic five years of my life, but towards the end, morally, the things that we were preaching on that show weren't really aligned with my own integrity. So that was a bit hard to show up to work every day knowing that we were going to project all of these themes to thousands -- millions -- of young adults across the country, when in fact they weren't what I would like to be sending out."
Woodley also opens up about her "fairly alternative" lifestyle, which is markedly different from what other celebrities of her ilk talk about.
"I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils," she says. "I could go on for hours. I make my own medicines; I don't get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It's an entire lifestyle. It's appealing to my soul."
