Thanks to the Divergent franchise, the next Young Adult series poised to be a may-jah hit, Shaliene Woodley is, The Hollywood Reporter contends, likely to be the next Jennifer Lawrence. *ducks for cover from Hunger Games fans* She's got the photo poses down and the pixie (which she had before J.Law, BTW), but she also has a completely different approach to Hollywood and, like, living than most young women who grace the covers of magazines. When in L.A., for instance, "she lugs five-gallon carboys up in the mountains to capture her own drinking water." She doesn't, and will never, shop at Kitson. Every word to come out of her mouth is totally captivating. I've never even been camping but now, because of Shailene, I am considering giving up all my possessions and moving into the closest forest. I will bring this interview as a guide.

Despite the fact that I am 99% sure she would never ingest orange soda, she convincingly poses with it in the shoot for THR. She explains her ability to separate her lifestyle from her job, which includes photo shoots and red carpet appearances, saying, "If I was to show up wearing my five-toe shoes, my Melodia organic leggings, and some hippie top, no one is going to take me seriously, and I probably would not be doing this interview right now for The Hollywood Reporter. When I go on a red carpet, I’m Shailene, but I’m also Shailene representing a movie. I’m there for my boss, for my employer, so part of that comes with wearing the uniform."

She's probably not going to wear a pink lace Burberry shirt when she's hiking up to collect water, but that doesn't stop her from making it #WERK at the shoot. She is just really, really cool.

She, of course, has limits and vows never to wear fur or diamonds. At Sundance, for instace, she wore a Navajo pendant as a means of "grounding and remembering what's important to [her]." In this shot, she wears a sequined Antonio Berardi jumpsuit and a silver Monique Pean ring. Her pants are too long and definitely at risk of getting wet, but something tells me Shailene has other things on her mind, like where she's going to sleep after the shoot (she's "doing the vagabond lifestyle for a bit"). If she wants to come sleep at my apartment, she's welcome any time. She can show me how to forage for fruit and wear Burberry when the occasion calls for it.
