Exactly How Shailene Woodley Should Celebrate Her 23rd Birthday
Wake up, birthday girl! Shailene Woodley rises to the sound of her alarm clock, which is presumably a Simon and Garfunkel cover recorded by 100 baby birds. The festivities can't begin until she's ready, of course, so Woodley, ever the natural beauty, gets to work with her homemade lotions, face oils and toothpaste. ("I make everything," she previously told Flaunt magazine.)
8:30 A.M. – 9:30 A.M.
Bummer! The supermarket bakery doesn't carry clay cakes so Woodley has to take matters into her own hands. She stirs an extra lump of the earthy stuff into the batter – after all, "Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials that are not necessarily the best for you," she said earlier this year.
9:30 A.M. – 11:30 A.M.
While the clayke is cooling, Woodley heads to the beach, where she sits back, relaxes, maybe flips through a book and, oh yes, suns her nether region. It's all part of her body mantra: "I like to ... give my vagina a little vitamin D ... If you're feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour, and see how much energy you get."
11:30 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.
What's a birthday without someone special to celebrate and/or take selfies with? Woodley heads to Runyon Canyon Park to forage for flowers and potential dates. "I don't even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever," she said earlier this year, so word of advice to her new friend: Don't be surprised if you don't get an invite to her 24th birthday.
12:30 P.M. – 2:30 P.M.
Hey, Woodley's a busy girl, so she can't just put her entire life on hold for a birthday, okay? She's got meetings to take, scripts to read and, more importantly, spring water to gather from the mountains (a monthly ritual, she's said).
2:30 P.M. – 4:30 P.M.
If you've been spending all afternoon trying to send Woodley an emoji-filled birthday greeting, here's why it's not going through: She doesn't own a cellphone, which means she needs a few hours to hang by her landline and catch up on her birthday messages.
5 P.M. – DAWN
Her surprise party continues into the night, going off without a hitch. And because she's at Clooney's house, she decides to ditch her typical restroom rule ("If it's yellow, let it mellow"). Nope, not on Amal's commode.
