Could it be that Shailene Woodley is sorry for having starred in this important saga?
Achieve success, fame and global recognition, is not easy to digest for many celebs, because with success come other situations that make many celebrities want to abandon everything to lead more peaceful lives, and this was something that Shailene was point of doing, almost quit acting!
The star began his career when he was just 10 years old on television, and his first leading role was in the series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but the success came when he starred in films like Divergent, Under the Same Star and The Present Splendor.
During an interview with PorterEdit, Shai tells how she was about to leave the performance because of a promise she made as a child: “When I was 7, I said, ‘The day I’m on the cover of a magazine, I will resign’, because I never I wanted this industry to get in the way of my life.”
The Saga of Divergent had a lot to do with this possibility: “I would not change the movies for anything in the world.” The last (The Divergent Series: Allegiant 2016) was a bit hard for everyone, and that’s what made me To think that I needed to have some human experiences outside of this industry and to fall in love with acting again.
The idea of the magazines, the press, the red carpets and the fashion, all of that was so overwhelming that it kept me away from that. I can not do anything by halves, so when I had to look a certain way or speak in a certain way for this image that I had to create, it bored me. When I was not filming, I worked on a farm somewhere because that was something I could cling to that felt real.
For example, when I was promoting The Descendants, I had studies saying, ‘You need to dress more cosmopolitan’, which is a very funny word when you’re 18 years old. I let go of my desire to be creative in that space because I did not want to be a mannequin so that someone would dress me and throw me on a red carpet. We often see a pattern with young women in the industry, their hair changes, their skin becomes clearer. All that drama behind the scenes scared me. If that’s not your thing, it can hurt your soul.”
Shai says that despite the bad guy that comes with fame, loves his job, and enjoys every minute that goes on inside the set, can you imagine what would have happened if he gave up his dream?
