Shailene Woodley is making her mark as a marquee name. The actress stars in Divergent, where she plays a fiercely independent girl who fights against societal norms — and it's not far from her real life.
Woodley's hippie-chic, Earth-friendly lifestyle isn't the only thing that sets her apart from her peers: her love life is pretty intriguing and different, too. This is one gal who's not afraid to take risks, whether it be with her career, her hair or her heart! Get to know Woodley's dating history and beliefs on love ... including the major bombshell she revealed this week about her sexuality.
Shailene Woodley is bisexual!
After an interviewer for The Hollywood Reporter spied the star dirty dancing with a few pals, the writer speculated that they may be "romantically involved." Woodley scoffed at the conclusion, but she did confess, "I fall in love with human beings based on who they are, not based on what they do or what sex they are."
Woodley's best friend is a lesbian, and she's got an amazingly simple and brilliant attitude about that.
"[My best friend] Rachel and I have a great relationship. I've always been able to tell her anything and she's always been able to tell me anything, so, if anything, I was super stoked that she finally was able to express herself completely about being a lesbian," Woodley told Seventeen back in 2010. "It didn't change anything in our relationship. I think some girls might get irked out by it, like, 'Oh my God, she’s looking at me this way.' It's not the case. Being gay or straight, I'm not going to look at every guy and think every guy is attractive. She's not going to look at every girl and think every girl is attractive. She's attracted to a certain type just like I'm attracted to a certain type." KEEP READING!
She's never had a broken heart!
Woodley confessed that she's been hurt, but she's never been dumped. "There's been times when I've had heartbreaking moments and I'm like, 'I can't believe you said that,' or 'I can't believe you did that,'" she said. "And it hurts, it still hurts, and it'll always hurt, but I've never had somebody that I truly cared about just walk out on me, whether it was a boyfriend, or an aunt, mom or dad. I mean, I think the only time my heart's actually been broken is when someone has died."
Woodley doesn't need to show a ton of skin to feel sexy.
"I feel like a turtleneck dress that's long-sleeved and covers your entire body but is tight fitting is so much sexier than boobs spilling out, you know?" she told Seventeen. "So I guess I'm more into being classy sexy versus apparent sexy."
She may be into dating her co-stars ...
Woodley was caught kissing her White Bird In A Blizzard co-star Shiloh Fernandez at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013. She was also linked to her Divergent co-star Miles Teller after they were spotted getting cozy in August 2013 at the MTV Video Music Awards, and her Fault In Our Stars co-star Ansel Elgor. Hot damn. Get it, girl!
... Or maybe into Jared Leto.
They were spotted walking together and looking awfully cozy and cute in New York City in December 2013, but since then Leto's been linked to Lupita N'yongo.
Woodley wouldn't rush into a relationship.
Because she loves flying solo! She told Elle in October, "I'm so young, and I'm single, and I just want to drift. I'm just going to be a drifter." That's good news, because she has a whole lot of options.
