Shailene Woodley Covers Marie Claire in Leather Jumpsuit, Talks Scoliosis, Single Life + Miley Cyrus

Marie Claire

‘Divergent’ star Shailene Woodley is earthy and down-to-earth, but she sure glams up on her April 2014 Marie Claire cover, wearing a colorblocked, futuristic leather jumpsuit with cut outs.

She looks majorly sexy for a woman on the verge of superstardom. In her feature, she talks shedding her possessions, the single life, her position on “the one” and Miley Cyrus. She also revealed the spinal condition from which she suffers.

Her big reveals are below.

She has ditched other possessions (not just her cell phone). “I’ve only been home nine days this year, which sort of what inspired me to get rid of everything,” the star, 22, said.

Both her parents are psychologists. Mom is a counselor, and her dad is a family therapist. They are divorced, however.

She thinks teenagers are smarter than we give them credit for. “For so long they were—and still are—depicted in movies and TV shows as codependent whiners or rich, beautiful, diamond-clad daughters or dumb cheerleader types,” she said. “But teenagers are so smart. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today. There is a zest for life that you have at that age that is so beautiful.”

She no longer gives a you-know-what about being thin. “My whole life I’ve been so self-conscious about being skinny,” the leggy actress said. “And just recently I don’t care anymore. All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don’t really matter at all. My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair—things I’m so very grateful for now.”

She suffers from scoliosis and had to wear a brace for 18 hours a day for two years as a teen. The actress was unfazed, saying, “I was like, ‘Some people have crooked teeth, some people have broken fingers, and I’ve got a back that has my initial on it.’” What an inspiration!

She deleted her Instagram because she felt icky. “Everything I was posting was for a story—like, ‘Look how interesting I am.’ It felt disgusting to me. It feels as though we’re so detached from actual human connection,” Woodley mused about social media.

She has been single for four years, hasn’t met the one and doesn’t know if “he” even exists. “I just haven’t met anyone where I was like, ‘Wow, I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you,’” Woodley admitted. “I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever.”

On Miley Cyrus: “I don’t really know anything about twerking,” Woodley declared. “I admire that she’s doing what she wants to do. I wasn’t really a fan of hers before, and now I’m just so fascinated by her. I love how everyone’s throwing a fit about something that isn’t their life.”
