When it comes to style, Shailene Woodley is on both sides of the fence.
And though the Oscars are only weeks away, the 20-year-old has lax specifications for her gown. “I have to be able to breathe,” she says. “I have to be able to have a food baby, and if I’m going to be sweaty, I need a dress that won’t show my sweat marks.”
But despite her nonchalance, Woodley also has her convictions: “I would do it again in a heartbeat,” she tells
of the much-maligned (and much-criticized) barefoot running shoes she wore to a Golden Globes after-party.
“If people spent as much time thinking about the genocides going on in Africa and around the world as they do the shoes that actors wear to after-parties, the world would be a much more peaceful environment.”
