Shailene Woodley Quotes On Acting

The reason I keep acting is that it fuels some kind of passion in me, but the day that those butterflies stop, is the day that I’m gonna quit because I could care less about the magazines or being famous or the money or the awards.

I’ve been acting since I was young because I wanted to, not because my parents wanted me to. My dad is a principal and mom is a middle school counselor, so acting was like, “Eh, whatever. As long as you get good grades.” It’s really fun, and nothing more.

The day the process of acting becomes something that I dread is the end. Obviously, why would you do something that you hate? I won’t do that.

Acting is fun and I refuse to get involved in the semantics and the politics of strategy and breaking out of something or doing something because you need to do something else. For me it’s all about what fuels my soul and if I’m passionate about a screenplay then that’s what I’ll do next.

Shailene Woodley Quotes On Art

For me acting is a passion and an art, and always will only be that. I don’t have any rules when it comes to acting. I’ll do anything. But it depends on the script. Either I’ll have passion for the project or I won’t. It’s got to fuel me.

I feel like at the end

I feel like at the end of the day, as entertaining as movies are, when you’re part of them in a way, it’s this beautiful art form and that’s what it feels like for me. I’m not a painter, but I can express myself visually in a way that allows me to artistically create.

Shailene Woodley Quotes Character

I think the best way to become a character is by osmosis as opposed to thinking directly about stuff. The more material that you have and understand and have a going in, then the more complex your character and the understanding of your character will be.

I love playing darker roles, or roles with meat. I feel very comfortable in that environment. I don’t know why. I don’t know what that says about me. I really enjoy doing complicated characters.

So many times, you get a script and it says, “And then, the character cries,” and you read the lines and think, “That would never make me cry. Those lines are so untruthful.” My approach is just to be honest to the situation.

Every single character in the world, every creature in the world has something to give and something to learn.

I’d always wanted to do a film than TV show because film is always where my heart has been. I like diving into the character for a few months, and then leaving it behind. I love the idea of that.

There aren’t a lot of films about adolescents or quote-unquote coming-of-age films that are realistic nowadays.

I’m not an actor who approaches films doing a lot of research. I do zero research, unless it’s a film where I’m playing a mock version of someone who already existed. Then, you’ve got to do a lot of research.

I think there’s a lot of work to be done with our societies. My biggest passions are the environment and health. And when I say ‘health’ I mean the secrets behind health and our food system.

Shailene Woodley Quotes On Hight School

I went to public school

I went to public school my whole life, graduated high school with my class. Growing up, I’d go to an audition, my friends would go to soccer practice and we’d all reconvene and hang out in our neighborhood. When I would book something, I would never tell my friends. Acting was just fun. I was a kid, I wasn’t jaded.

My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair — things I’m so very grateful for now.

Alcohol is a big part of high school. I went through my little phase. I don’t know one high schooler that doesn’t.

Shailene Woodley Quotes On Earth

My religion is the Earth, man. I believe in trees.

This earth is exciting. There are so many things happening.

Shailene Woodley Quotes On Heart

George Clooney sort of lost his ‘George Clooney-ness’ the first day I met him. He’s not George Clooney in my eyes – he’s George from Kentucky with an awesome, awesome heart.

I had never been to Hawaii, and now I say that my body is from L.A. but my heart is from Hawaii, because I’m in love with it and it’s home on every level, from a spiritual, soulful place.

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.
