Shailene Woodley

In new film Adrift, based on a true story, Shailene Woodley’s character is tasked with single-handedly sailing a yacht 1,500 miles to safety. Woodley echoes this kind of grit in her own life, as her career takes o and her activism makes changes in the world

” It’s been part of me for as long as I can remember… this sense of rising up against wrongdoing “

Since sensationally being arrested in 2016 during the North Dakota oil pipeline protest, Shailene Woodley is making her mark both as a rising star in Hollywood and as an eco and social justice warrior. But which does she identify with more? ‘They’re both part of me’, Woodley says. ‘They’re what I do in my life.’

The actress’s career is still in its infancy – she has a handful of high-profile performances under her belt in The Descendants (2011) with George Clooney, The Spectacular Now (2013), The Fault In Our Stars (2014) – for which she won a Hollywood Film Award for best breakout performance – and Snowden (2016), as well as the little-known franchise, Divergent (2014). However, in this relatively short space of time, Woodley has become a dominant player in ‘Young Hollywood’, with her strength of opinion and campaigning for action garnering her respect from many quarters. It’s given her confidence in front of the cameras, too, and she was far from out of her depth in last year’s star-studded HBO vehicle, Big Little Lies.
