Based on her latest press rounds, Divergent star Shailene Woodley has been revealing herself to be the ultimate celebrity hippie. (Oh No They Didn't fans obviously took notice and have christened her with some really great nicknames, so H/T.)
1. She’s a Woodland Nymph™ who taught herself to make weapons.
"The producers asked me what I liked to do in my spare time and I told them I used to study how to survive in the wild—how to make shelter, build fire, and create weapons out of the ecosystem—but I live in a city, so it also got me thinking about urban survival skills.” – The Daily Beast
2. She’ll be returning to indie films to regain her throne as the Quinoa Queen™.
"Studio films, there are so many cooks in the kitchen. It's like there are just a lot of people. Independent film is so nice because the same people in the editing room are the same people who were on set with you that day…I’ll direct one day. I love to feel and I love truthful, authentic films that are very thought-provoking or emotion-provoking.” – E!
3. She doesn’t own a cellphone, like a true Shrub Duchess™.
“I’m not a big technology person. I don’t even have a smartphone. I don’t even have a cellphone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone. There’s a bigger lack of privacy than there’s ever been, but there’s also a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there’s ever been. I mean … just asking people for directions. Since I got rid of my phone, having to pull over and be like, “Hey, buddy—do you know how to get here?” I’m talking to people more than I’ve ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have.” – The Daily Beast
4. She’s open about her sexuality because she’s a Bisexual Herbal Goddess™.
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are, not based on what they do or what sex they are.” – The Hollywood Reporter
5. Being the Earth Mother™ she is, she sees every conversation as an opportunity to “connect,” even with red carpet reporters.
"We've got a set amount of time in our lives, you know. You might as well make every conversation count. So that's like the hug. It's kind of like, 'Hey, I'm real. You're real. Let's connect.'" – The Hollywood Reporter
6. Our Leaf Princess™ is just your everyday hunter-gatherer who also makes her own toothpaste.
"I think everything about my lifestyle is fairly alternative. I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils. I could go on for hours.” – Flaunt magazine
7. Your average, real-life, 22-year-old Dr. Quinn-Woodley Medicine Woman™.
"I make my own medicines; I don't get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It's an entire lifestyle. It's appealing to my soul." – Flaunt magazine
8. Our Lady of the Fresh Spring Fed Mountain Lake™ only wears used clothing.
"I exclusively buy used clothes. I'm going to be a citizen of this planet, and I'm going to do my responsibility and live in stride with nature instead of constantly fighting against her…''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. 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.'' – The Hollywood Reporter
9. This Lone Wolf of Laurel Canyon™ forages almost half of her diet.
“I try to do, like, 35% of my diet wild foods…Like I live in Los Angeles and I’ll go an hour away into the mountains and I’ll find stinging nettle and mugwort and a bunch of other herbs that you can use medicinally. Stinging nettle is so tasty, it’s like spinach, it’s so good for you too! It’s very nutritional.” – on the "Rachael Ray Show"
10. She’s a Thistle Sage Countess™ who’s eternally in touch with her subconscious state.
“I dream so many dreams! I’ve actually found some herbs that will induce lucid dreaming or will help with other types of dreaming.” – Interview magazine
11. Gaia Demigoddess™ sees no distinction between ourselves and the Earth.
“We need to break down the associations that we have that we’re different from nature—that we need to protect the Earth and save the Earth—when we are, in fact, part of the Earth. So it all starts with us.” – Interview magazine
