With sci-fi action film Divergent dominating box offices, actress Shailene Woodley — the film’s lead gal — is the perfect selection for this month’s Flare.
The film — which is based on same-titled best-selling novel — debuted over the weekend, and is set in post-apocalyptic Chicago.
Woodley made her film debut — The Descendants — in 2011. Her performance earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Having said that, she is arguably best known for her lead role as Amy Juergens on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of The American Teenager. Woodley starred on the show from 2008-2013.
Now, at only the age of 22 — and her television past seemingly behind her — the actress is thoroughly submerging herself in film. Prior to Divergent, she’d also starred in White Bird in a Blizzard, and The Spectacular Now (alongside Miles Teller).
This summer, in keeping with her penchant for adapted films, Woodley will co-star in The Fault in Our Stars, a film based on the New York Times best-selling novel authored by John Green. The film releases June 6.
With four films releasing in a 10-month span — dating back to last August — Shailene Woodley is embarking on silver screen stardom. She is the cover girl of the April issues of both Marie Claire and Teen Vogue.
