Shailene Woodley is at it again, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. After sharing six unforgettable quips from her “Divergent” press tour in March, the 22-year-old film star is back to speaking out in her hippie-ish yet lovable way.
Here are six of Woodley’s best and most outrageous quotes from "The Fault in Our Stars" press tour:
On whether she considers herself a feminist: “No, because I love men and I think the idea of ‘raise women to take power’ is never going to work out because you need balance,” Woodley told Time magazine in May, which was one of her most controversial comments to date. “With myself, I am very in touch with my masculine side and I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are.”
On kissing her “Divergent” and “TFIOS” co-star, Ansel Elgort: “I always wanted to know what it’d be like to kiss my brother,” Woodley joked during a Q&A webcast in New York in May when asked if it was awkward to have Ansel Elgort go from playing her brother in the “Divergent” film to playing her on-screen love interest in “TFIOS.” “If Ansel and I hadn’t known each other from ‘Divergent,’ our relationship in this movie wouldn’t be what it is,” Woodley said. “We didn’t have to go through the rehearsal phase of getting to know one another and getting comfortable with one another.”

On eating clay: Forget fruits and vegetables, Woodley prefers to eat clay. “I do eat clay, yeah. Do you?” Woodley asked David Letterman on the “Late Show” May 5 while speaking about her special daily diet, which consists of a teaspoon of Colorado-sourced clay. “Clay is one of my favorites because if you look at sort of indigenous cultures around the world, people are eating clay almost daily. It’s just a part of their diet. I’m not kidding … I’m not joking. Look it up. It’s really interesting."
On her bust size: In the June 2014 issue of In Style magazine, Woodley claimed that going from playing dauntless warrior Tris Prior in “Divergent" to cancer-stricken teen Hazel Grace in “The Fault in Our Stars” radically changed her physique, including her bust size. “My boobs shrank. No one tells you that when you lose weight,” the actress revealed, adding, “No bra, no problem!”
On rumors of a ‘TFIOS’ sequel: Fans of John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” know love story's tragic ending, but that hasn’t stopped readers from speculating about a possible sequel. When asked about the possibility of Green penning a second "TFIOS, "Woodley joked that [Spoiler Alert!] Augustus would come back from the dead only to proclaim his love for their mutual friend Isaac, not Hazel.
“… He comes back as a ghost and says, ‘I’m in love with Isaac, sorry Hazel,” Woodley told YouTuber polandbananaBOOKS during an interview in May, adding that her character Hazel will go on to date another female character in the YA book, Monica. “It’s really progressive. Very new age. Very liberal. It’s actually a campaign for gay rights," Woodley said.
On being homeless: Woodley may be one of Hollywood’s leading ladies but she is so low-maintenance, she doesn’t even have a place to call home, let alone enough possessions to fill one. “Everything that I own and use are in a carry-on suitcase,” Woodley revealed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in May.
According to the actress, after she was only home for 15 days in 2013, she decided to purge all of her personal effects (including her home, which she gifted to her grandmother) in order to more easily visit her family and friends while off the clock.
“I got rid of everything so I could just have one suitcase that would be easy to just transport between houses and just kinda coach surf for a few months,” she said. “It’s so refreshing, and it takes so much stress away when you’re like, ‘Uh, I only have one pair of jeans to wash.’ It’s so nice.”
