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!
├óΓé¼┼ôSomebody came to me and said, ├óΓé¼╦£I can├óΓé¼Γäót wait to see what you do next.├óΓé¼Γäó I took that as pressure├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥that I had to live up to somebody else├óΓé¼Γäós expectations. There were a few months where I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£I don├óΓé¼Γäót want to act anymore.├óΓé¼Γäó And then I got over it and realized it├óΓé¼Γäós none of my business what other people think of me.├óΓé¼┬¥
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!
├óΓé¼┼ôFor a few hours it was literally like, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, my God, was I awful? Why did they cut me? What are people going to think?├óΓé¼Γäó I woke up the next morning and I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£O.K., it makes total sense.├óΓé¼Γäó I├óΓé¼Γäóm a pretty spiritual person, so I can just sit back and trust that everything happens for a reason, even if my ego doesn├óΓé¼Γäót like it.├óΓé¼┬¥
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!
