‘George Clooney makes me cry,’ says Divergent star Shailene Woodley.

Shailene Woodley is poised to be the next Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stewart with her role in teen flick Divergent. She tells Express.co.uk about her love for George Clooney and Kate Winslett and why she never wants to be a celebrity.

Shailene Woodley is not your typical movie star.

Despite starring in Divergent franchise, which is tipped to be the next Hunger Games or Twilight, she definitely isn’t in it for the fame.

“I hate when people casually say ‘star’ and ‘celebrity’, those words are like puke in my mouth.”
She finds the thought of being as famous as Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stewart “intimidating” and loves her “low-key” life.

She made her big-screen debut in George Clooney’s indie family drama, The Descendants and reserves the accolade of being a star for her real heroes, like Mr. Clooney.

“As an actor and someone in the public eye, he has a platform and he has taken all that responsibility and more to try and change things in the world. 

“He’s the dude who sleeps in Africa and has had malaria multiple times because he’s out there literally stopping wars.

“That’s what makes him a star: not only is he a good actor but he accepts the responsibility and he’s not selfish.” 

Even so, she is excited about her role in the latest teen series about a dystopian future (what else?) where humanity has been divided into groups according to personality traits.
Based on the books by Veronica Roth it's thoughtful stuff, but Woodley admits she was mainly drawn to the feistiness of her “badass” character, Tris.

She even learned to let go of her indie sensibilities.

“One day, I had some cheesy action-film line like, ‘You’re mine now’ and I said, ‘That’s crazy, Tris would never say that.’ 

“And [co-star] Zoe Kravitz said, ‘Shai, you’re making an action film now. Sometimes it’s fun to just do things that don’t make sense in real life.’ 
“So then it sort of clicked and I was like, Zoe’s right, this isn’t an indie film, it’s a big blockbuster.”
She also revelled in the chance to watch Oscar-winner Kate Winslett at work as the menacing leader, Jeanine Matthews.
“I found her amazing. What a classy, strong woman. 

“Kate’s done so many giant movies and yet is still able to be one of the best moms and have a normal life. 

“She said something once about actors, ‘Some people just make it harder on themselves than they need to.’ 

“And I was like, ‘God you’re so right. We make it so hard on ourselves!’ 
`'Life is easy, we’ve just got to step back. 

“And she loves acting more than maybe anyone I’ve ever met. First one there, last one to leave and so passionate about the art and craft.”

Casamigos with Mr Clooney
