Shailene Woodley Thinks Parents Should Stop Freaking Out About Miley Cyrus

"She just does herself."

Shailene Woodley thinks that bullies should be a way bigger deal to parents than whatever Miley Cyrus is doing. The actress who plays the cancer-stricken and love-stricken Hazel in “The Fault In Our Stars” was Vanity Fair‘s July cover star, and she defended Miley in some of the outtakes from her cover story interview.

What it boils down to: Miley is just doing herself and it’s nobody’s business but her own.

“Miley isn’t rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions,” Shailene said. “She just does herself. And regardless of whether you agree with what she’s doing or not, it’s none of your business what she does. She’s not in the world doing mean things.”

Case and point—here’s one of Miley’s silly 4th of July outfits. Harmless, right?

“Why are all these parents or all these people freaking out about Miley being herself?” Shailene continued. “If you don’t want your kids to watch it, you know, you can change that situation at home, but don’t make a big deal of what she’s doing. Make a big deal about the bullies at school who are beating kids up.”

She may not consider herself a feminist, but she’s got strong-minded opinions about the way society judges young women and their behavior. You tell ‘em Shailene!
