Shailene Woodley Is As Vulnerable As They Come! Her Openness About Hollywood Heartbreak Makes Her Even MORE Amazing!

shailene woodley on pressures of hollywood getting cut from spiderman

Ya know, if anyone marches to the beat of her own drum, it's definitely Shailene Woodley!

So that's why it's incredibly surprising to hear her admit to giving in to the pressures of Hollywood!

Well, only briefly, but still!

The Fault in Our Stars actress opened up to Vanity Fair about being in the spotlight and she admitted that she buckled under the pressure and gave in to trying to live up to other's expectations!

She admitted:

“Somebody came to me and said, ‘I can’t wait to see what you do next.’ I took that as pressure—that I had to live up to somebody else’s expectations. There were a few months where I was like, ‘I don’t want to act anymore.’ And then I got over it and realized it’s none of my business what other people think of me.”

We're seriously glad that she got over her fear, or else we wouldn't have the wonderful wood nymph that is Shailene!

However, Shailene still suffers from those Hollywood expectations from time to time.

She also revealed what it felt like to get cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it doesn't sound like it was the best feeling!

She said:

“For a few hours it was literally like, ‘Oh, my God, was I awful? Why did they cut me? What are people going to think?’ I woke up the next morning and I was like, ‘O.K., it makes total sense.’ I’m a pretty spiritual person, so I can just sit back and trust that everything happens for a reason, even if my ego doesn’t like it.”

Wow! She wouldn't get cut because she couldn't act! We can't BELIEVE she'd think that.

However, it's nice to see that even stars like Shailene can get hit with self-doubt like this!

Stars, they're people too!

    I am sorry… she is so annoying. And her I am so spiritual is bullshit. Everyone is spiritual when things are going good…until there not.

    “Somebody came to me and said, ‘I can’t wait to see what you do next.’ I took that as pressure—that I had to live up to somebody else’s expectations. Wow on top of smelling like a cistern she is a neurotic wreck! As an artist if someone said that to me I'd simply feel like, well, nothing. Mainly cause while I appreciate compliments I don't give a shit if my next CD is what 'they' expect or like or anything. I do what comes to me, not thinking "Oh will so and so be thrown by this key change?"

    She sounds like a fucking smelly landmine of emotional problems. Hey, we all have them, comes with the territory, but if only she'd bathe with Dial maybe I'd be kinder.

    Why are people so against her? Oh my goodness, she just speaks what's on her mind and you spew out hate. I totally get where she's coming from. It's easy to get caught up in what other people think of you. She's just better off doing what's best for her. Some people in Hollywood LIVE for the opinion's of other people. That's a dangerous way to live your life.

    I can't stand her and her face. She looks like a nun in fancy clothes and with that red dress on she just looks like a kid who went in her mom's closet and dressed in the worst thing she could have possibly found. I haven't watched any of her movies but I just don't like her face.
