Although Woodley has been linked to various men throughout her career — including her Divergent costar Theo James and musician Nahko Bear — having a boyfriend has never been something the actress has been known for.

In 2014, the actress told Teen Vogue that “literally have not had a boyfriend in almost five years. I’ve never been hooked up with anybody I’ve worked on a movie with.” Although she did admit she may have hooked up with a costar after filming.

In 2015, Woodley did open up to Elle about what she looks for in a relationship. “When you’re truly in love, for me, you’re my lighthouse! You’re somebody who holds me high, keeps me safe, you’ve got my f—n’ back You also love me whole, wild and free. You let me do me and I’m gonna let you do you! And I’ll be the home that you return to.”

That year she also told InStyle that while she “falls in love constantly,” finding a boyfriend isn’t that simple. “I always think of my life as a pie. My pie is f—king fine. I’ve got the best pie! It’s so delicious. If you want to add some ice cream and s—t on top, you are welcome to join the party, but you don’t get to take a slice of my pie.”
