    You go, Shailene! It's really nice to see a young Hollywood Actress that doesn't say she LOVES Twilight just because it was the "in" and "popular" thing to be into. What Shailene is saying is 100% true. Twilight is a story about a girls who has to choose between a dead vampire and a werewolf who turns out to be a pedophile by "imprinting" on their BABY DAUGHTER!

    I was indifferent to Shailene but now I think she is awesome! Thanks for speaking out on something that has always bothered me. Twilight isn't healthy or romantic in the slightest.

    To straighten one thing out from the article, quote "the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself?" If this woman read the books she would know that Stephanie Meyer did NOT write Bella to be suicidal! And in no part of the book/movie does she try to kill herself.
    Second of all, how do we expect the world to evolve with all the snickering, bitching paps and articles tearing down the celebrities by printing rumors and lies about eating disorders, adultery, drug use and suicide? I think the real culprits are those writing the articles and taking the pictures. Printing these "stories" and putting them on the shelves for the young and easily influenced audience to purchase, view and read. There is nothing wrong with a good fairy tale.
    I wonder if her views on the classics such as hansel and grettel, little Bo peep and many others would be the same if she knew that they were all horror stories and myths before they became bedtime tales and nursery rhymes.

    This girl has no clue! It's FICTION! I guess Romeo and Juliet is also toxic. Come on shes giving a cheap shot so she will get press. Big mistake. Twi fans are very loyal to the books and movies. What makes her so special, she's in a crazy Sci Fi movie. Oh yeah it's coming out real soon. Wonder how Summit likes her comments, since they are the ones who put her movie out. Haha. Man just hanging the Twi coattail to promote her movie.

  6. sayswho says – reply to this


    I think it is interesting that everyone HAS to have an opinion about Twilight and I think they do it to draw attention to THEIR movies! She obviously hasn't read the book and possibly never been in love so I'll give her a pass for not knowing that there are loves in your life who do knock you back when it is over and it takes sometimes years to get back on your feet.

    Still and all I think she's making statements to be "superior" and bring attention to her own movie which has yet to be proven a hit.

  7. Bella says – reply to this


    I hate this girl. She barely gets into a shitty franchise and she thinks she rules the world. And that TFIOS thing? I'd never, ever let my kids read such a literally sick and twisted story. Twilight is a thousand times healthier and generally better than that. She said these things because her movies will never be as popular as The Twilight Saga, Kristen and Rob have more talent in their pinkies than she ever will in her whole body and she's a sore loser.

  8. Hilary says – reply to this


    I dont agree with Shailene - there is nothing toxic about young love and by the way if i had to choose between JLaw or KStew - i would choose Kirsten any day - at least she can act which is more than can be said for Shailene or Jen!

  9. Hdininzisj says – reply to this


    Bella did not try to commit suicide, she needs to check her facts before she blurts out a strong opinion like that!!

    Oh so being an unmarried teen mom is a better message to send teens??? Shut up u hypocrite ur movie will not do as well as twilight or hunger games. And even if it does it won't be because of u. It will be because of Theo James!!! U will never be like Kristen and Jennifer ur not that talented!!!

    AH poor child first she knows nothing about relationships then she insults the next liz taylor bye bye whoever you thought you were lol…… really who is this chick lol…..

  13. Jared says – reply to this


    Twilight is horribly written garbage. The Bella/Edward relationship is abusive, obsessive, and controlling. Anyone who actually likes the books is just looking for a "romance" that they wish they were in, like Stephenie Meyer wanted when she "wrote" it. Bella is NOT a strong female character- the second he leaves, she puts herself in danger to get a glimpse of him, thus looks like she wants to commit suicide. Because the boyfriend who wants to kill her breaks up with her? She gets more upset that the werewolf gives her daughter a weird nickname than when he basically claims her as someone he will mate with when the second she's born. Also, it doesn't make sense. She couldn't have gotten pregnant because a vampire isn't living. Sperm is living, and he could NOT have impregnated her. And vampires don't sparkle in the sun. They burn. The entire franchise of books and movies is a load of utter bullshit and everyone with a sound sense of mind knows that. Anyone who defends it is either stupid and/or delusional. Don't bash Shailene because she actually had the balls to say what everyone wanted to say about that waste of a series instead of defending it because it was the trend to like it. I applaud her, and Divergent is series leaps and bounds better than Twilight.

  14. oranges says – reply to this


    Re: Jared – everyone but the twilight fans knows the series is shit. it's just a fact that the entire universe and story of that is awful. same with 50 shades. everyone knows that it's stupid and terrible, but the fans of it who have nothing better to do but fantasize. no sense in trying to argue with them. you can't fix natural stupidity.

    Re: Jared – Yes. This. Accurate. All of it.

  16. YouAreNOTtheFather says – reply to this


    Re: Jared – Duh. If you notice, everyone acts like Twilight never happened. They WANT to forget that trainwreck. Harry Potter is still relevant. Hunger Games is praised. Divergent has everyone excited. Twilight doesn't fit into those stories, those good stories, because Twilight was an error in literature and film.

  17. Cristin says – reply to this


    Re: Bella – You won't let your kids read a book about two cancer patients that find love? That sounds pretty ignorant to me… And you can't compare the "sick and twisted" story of TFIOS to the Twilight love story. Your comment about how TFIOS is unhealthy, sick and twisted is really ignorant. It's disturbing that you'd rather have your kids read about fictitious, vampiric love story in which the girl spends half the second book staring out the window in an UNHEALTHY "coping" heart-break mechanism than a beautifully written story of two,lovestruck cancer patients who cope through each other's strength. Maybe you're the sick one.

  18. mls8662 says – reply to this


    I won't judge a book or movie on what Shailene Woodley thinks about it. This girl seems to have a very inflated idea of her own importance. I've never even heard of her. Who is she?

  19. 19

    How does someone have the nerve to say that considering the show she was on?! "What message are we sending to young people? " Girlfriend, you were on a show where you were pregnant as a teenager ! Wth?!!!!!

  20. Aaron Carney says – reply to this


    to all you people saying she doesn't try to kill herself. doesn't she show no regard to her life when she starts speeding?

  21. 21

    This girl makes me so mad. She's been in "the business" for about 5 minutes and since she got the bump from her ridiculous tv show all the news I've seen about her is her bashing some other celebrity. How about just being thankful for your own success and let other people do their own thing. I don't see why this comment or any other comment she's rudely made are necessary. I have a feeling she won't be relevant after this series is over.

  22. Madison says – reply to this


    I don't remember her trying to kill herself, being depressed and doing dangerous things to see him, but not kill herself. I believe Shialene played an unwed teen who begged her cheating boyfriend to love her. What type of example did Amy and Ricky set. Twlight was fantasy her show was more real. I believe we call that the pot calling the kettle black. She needs to not throw stones when her career and choices are not squeaky clean.

  23. Jane says – reply to this


    Who is this Shailene anyway? If she were smart, she would read the book first and then pray her movie makes money because she isn't pretty at all.

    I loved Bella all the way from beginning to the end where she killed Aro in the future!! What you talking abou Shalene may baleen! Get a life, Bella turned out To be the queen of all the vampires and werewolves. Read the Book!

    Twilight is horrible oh he loves me oh he doesnt oh im so weak and need a man to defined who Iam. Thats basically all the books sumed up

  27. WhiteQueenVictoria says – reply to this


    Plus Kristen over Jennifer hahaha yeah right Kristen has no personality, is a pothead and had an affair with a married man and destroyed a family and a man who loved her. A blank piece of ppl has more emotion now Jennifer shes an amazing actress! shes funny loves her self and is confident. Jen 100%

  28. Cali says – reply to this


    Re: Hilary – You're joking right? Please tell me you're joking? There's a reason why Jen has an Oscar and Kristen doesnt. She hasnt even come close to one.

  29. Baz says – reply to this


    Total bullshit… Bella was never going to kill herself.. Get your facts straight love. Not everyone likes twilight, fair enough, everyone has there own opinion. But it did well. Now it's over.. No need to take a dig at it.

  30. Claudia says – reply to this


    Re: Cristin – Are we really fighting over something so ridik? Bella was inconsistent and she did rely on a man. She stopped talking to her friends, her dad and became a zombie. Shailene is right. Twilight fans need to pull their heads out of their asses, Bella is not a role model. Katniss, Hermoine and Tris are. They teach young girls to not cower from a man in power or anyone, just keep pushing. Harry and Ron would be nothing without Hermione, Katniss was the face of the mockingbird revolution and Tris is a leader. Bella was whiny and she accomplished nothing. Get over yourselves. Calling Shailene a loser because shes right? What has Bella taught you? that vampires can be great boyfiends, that vampires go to highschool with you? that vampires can impregnate you? Seriously, tell me what Bella has taught you?

  31. Elena says – reply to this


    I think she is just hating on a big franchise movie name. Bella did not want to kill herself, yes it was a love story but so was Romeo and Juliet and west side story!! She was in a tv show where she had a child at a very young age AND then left them behind in the end.. Good example to show young girls!!

  32. thats not my name says – reply to this


    Re: Bella
    FIRST: Get help
    SECOND: Shitty franchise? Girl has like 6 movies in the next 2 years.
    THIRD: TFIOS. Sick and twisted. Sick yes, it is indeed a story about cancer. Twisted, well if you call 2 sick people falling in love twisted… you have a sad concept of twisted…
    FOURTH Twilight is NOT healthy in any way shape or form. and I've read the books. Seen the movies. Etc.
    FIFTH Kristen stewart. talent. in. Twilight…
    SEVENTH She didn't lose.

  33. jbradley says – reply to this


    Shaliene Woodley if people weren't thinking about killing themselves after watching Twilight well they do now. We all thank you for your opinion more young people will kill themselves now because of your opinion, it was just a science fiction now it can become reality.

    Re: Jane
    "Pray her movie makes money because she isn't pretty at all"
    Oh boy, I guess only pretty people can make movies that sell?
    ignorant and useless comment.

  35. LOVE KS says – reply to this


    Hi, Watching movie is mainly for entertaining. The main point of Twilight is Edward's unconditional love to Bella. That touches so many girls and ladies. Since when Hollywood thinks they are responsible for educating the young generations? How about the girl you played ,get pregnant at 15? At least Bella had sex and got pregnant AFTER married!

  36. Fuzzy says – reply to this


    Shailene wasn't dissing Kristen but Stephanie Meyer. I used to love reading about vampire stories until I read Twilight.

  37. idiots says – reply to this


    To all those people who are saying she doesn't have the right to talk because she played a pregnant teenager should just shut up now. The Secret Life of the American Teenager (whilst the plot/acting can be horrible) does not embrace teen pregnancy and instead shows the targeted audience the negative consequences of it. Unlike Twilight where a relationship between seventeen year old and a one-hundred-and-something year old is attempted to be justified because "oh but he's a vampire…". No. Just because he's a vampire, doesn't mean he's not an old creep.
    Shailene is right. No it's not right to teach 16 year olds to get pregnant, but that's what the show was trying to show. Do you think her character in the show was all jolly and excited to have a baby? No. It almost destroyed her and the father's life. Whereas Twilight shows that yes it's okay to be in a relationship with a harmful, very old vampire, as long as he looks okay! And yes, it's okay to feel completely depressed and lose purpose in life when your boyfriend leaves you! And it's TOTALLY okay to marry at seventeen years old!!!! Go for it!!!! As long as he's hot, right???!!!

  40. Frwee says – reply to this


    Re: molly – It influences too many vulnerable minds. But it's true it's just a story. Although the Hunger Games is in a league of it's own compared to most young adult fiction. Every teen should read that and be influenced by that.

  41. dane says – reply to this


    It's okay shaleiine?whoever you are! Stephanie Meyer got millions over this books and so as the twilight casts. Kristen, Robert,etc are now a well known actors (thanks to Stephanie Meyer and her books) and for the record this is the first vampire movies/books who DOESN'T engaged in Pre MARITAL SEX, and oh by the way, If you read/seen the movie Edward had clearly stand by NOT having SEX before their UNION/MARRIAGE :) A woman like me who grew up in a different culture which teach us to value the virginity, I will surely let my grandchildren read and see the books :)

    Re: Jared – (post #13) Exactly!
    Re: oranges – (post #14) couldn't say it better myself.
    Re: mls8662 – (post #18) Who is she? Good question :)
    Re: Aaron Carney – (post #20) There! Anyone else wants to argue with that?
    Re: molly – (post #39) lol too right! hunger games is just as ridiculous and boring as the twilight stories. I only watched first movie of each of these series and couldn't make it to the end without dosing off. Bore! Lame stories but unfortunately teenage mods are so easily influenced that it's scary those things were made into movies. Kids don't like reading books, and that's for the better in case of books like those ones.

  43. jelly says – reply to this


    Kristen is excited about her craft, been acting for most of her life and never says a bad word about anyone. Yep I would go to Kristen for advise.

  44. JusSayinIt says – reply to this


    First off, Shaliene you REALLY can't comment about the Twilight series being an unhealthy romance for young adults when you starred in a series about a teen getting pregnant in high school! Walking contradiction! Second, Twilight sucks! PERIOD! All you Twi-hards who think this was the greatest series/movies to ever been created are idiots with no literary sense or reason. Third, K.Stew character WAS suicidal! Did she not attempt to speed off a cliff just so she can get high enough to see an apparition of Edward? And to the person who said she would rather her kids read Twilight over TFIOS, you're the people that are poisoning America with your stupidity & now you're passing it to your children. Future idiots of America.

  45. Cuervo1 says – reply to this


    Re: Jared – twilight is way better than divergent. And vampires can sparkle in the sun it's a made up movie and book get it over with. Oh and Edward is alive still so yeah Bella could get pregnant. Whoever doesn't like twilight they are sore losers

  46. Cuervo1 says – reply to this


    Re: Claudia – Bella was just a character seriously do you think katniss is doing a good thing she kept on kissing peeta and gale oh yeah she's great and what about the girl from divergent shes not even great of an actress whoever doesn't like twilight doesn't know love

    I despise Twilight. I also did not enjoy The Secret Life of the American Teenager at all.
    But we are all talking about works of fiction here. I think if your children are level-headed, smart people who like to read books or watch TV shows for entertainment purposes only, they will not be "scarred for life". I have friends who enjoyed Twilight and the Hunger Games (which does not "encourage" kids to kill other kids. It's a satire of modern society inspired by the Japanese novel Battle Royale…) because they were easy, fun reads and that's ok too.

  52. twilight fan says – reply to this


    I loved the Twilight series, both the books and the movies. I still love them and will always love them. I think Shailene (whoever she is - I've never heard of her) is entitled to her opinion, It's just a little suspicious that she would voice it now -so it makes one think she is trying to draw the attention of millions of Twilight fans to her new endeavor. I think she is probably too young to realize what heartbreak in love can do to a person with low self-esteem - it causes all kinds of tragedies and renders Twilight a pertinent story for our times. Help the world evolve? - not Twilight's intent and what a ridiculously lofty statement!

  55. imeaniguess says – reply to this


    Re: sayswho – of course break ups hurt, but Bella shows no productivity in trying to heal. She purposely puts herself in dangerous situations to feed her dilusions that he has not left her. There is nothing healthy about this behavior, and I would argue that it is glamorized in the book and movie. If she were shown to do her best to cope with her negative emotions instead of letting them fester and hurt herself further, this would not be a problem.

    The relationship between Bella and Edward was "toxic" as the book/movie series repeatedly pointed out. But…… if you're going to "slam" something, it's best if you actually know what you're talking about. If she had read the book or seen the movie she would have known that Bella didn't try to kill herself.

    the twilight book says from a weak one to become a stronger one .. we have our own differences when it comes to movies .

    twilight is FANTASY. if she's focusing on what this movie is based on how about the fact that she is in love with someone that drinks blood or is a hundred years older than her. The fact that she hated being away from the guy she loved is actually one of the easier parts of the movie to relate to. Feminism is not an excuse for irrationality. Shailene stfu you aren't smart, if you were you wouldn't be acting. and come on that shitty abc family show she was in she had a kid at 16. is that something we should be teaching kids?

    Actually….shailene might want to read the twilight books as well as Divergent. Bella ( a fictional character) isn't trying to commit suicide. She trying to get a hit of adrenaline so that she can "see " Edward. The funny thing is that shailene a character Tris basically is trying to kill herself in the middle of Diverent! Until she is laying on the table facing her execution and decides that she wants to live. Her love interest (Four) even points it out to her (tris) several times that she is acting suicidal. And Tris and Bella aren't that different in a lot of their characteristics. Maybe don't be so judgemental about a fictional story/character when you are playing one that is so similar.

    Don't look now Shailene Woodley. Your show "the Secrect life of teenagers" is WORSE than Twilight. Your show has females getting pregnant out of wedlock, lying over and over and over again. You never know who is "hooking" up with someone else. There is no morales or values. Shailene's cast mates are disrecpectful. You weren't in any Pulitzer prize winning show either.

  72. Kate Dennis says – reply to this


    I might add that what made Twilight interesting for me was that after Bella spends so much time feeling insecure and worrying about others in the books SHE is the one that blossoms and saves the day. She makes the decision to give birth, it is her power that shocks and scares the voltari. She becomes the powerhouse she was meant to be, and all looked up to her. More than a romance it is Bella's coming of age story, the guys are really just secondary in the scope of things.

  73. elles says – reply to this


    so many people completely missed the important points of Twilight. It is so much more than just the vampire issue. I've read all the books dozens of times (and I'm not a teenager but also a writer) and I found so much more in 'Twilight' than most of the commentators that find it toxic. I'm sorry to see most of these readers missed so much that was very good. I feel that an actress that is so short sighted would not be worth my time to go and see at the theatre. If she would have been more open minded, I might go to see 'Divergent' but not now. Stephenie Meyer is an excellent writer.

    I love to read and enjoyed reading all 3 series and have nothing bad to say about any of them or the movies. I don't like Shailene's comment because this isn't the first time she has spoken poorly of others. She is young and judgmental. I think it looks badly on her that she is constantly speaking ill of others or movies. Everyone has an opinion and a right to one but so far i have only heard negative ones from her. I also saw an interview where she said she was excited about doing this movie because the books touch on things that were relevant right now and a topic she is passionate about. When asked what that was she went on a whole rant about mind control and being chipped and how that is happening right now. Weird right?! Anyway all in all i just think she is a big fat HAITER
