Seeking to break away from the young adult's movie genre, Shailene Woodley said in her recent interview that "The Fault in our Stars" would be her last teenage oriented movie.
"I saw Fault last night. And it was nostalgic in a way. That will be the last teenage movie that I'm going to do. Last year, when I made Fault, I could still empathize with adolescence. But I'm not a young adult anymore—I'm a woman. But I've never played my age before and that's my next goal. It's scary," Woodley, who has become a household name said in an interview with New York Magazine, reported Vulture.
Woodley has already embarked on the journey of more mature and bolder roles. She would be seen doing various nude scenes in her next movie "White Bird in a Blizzard". Woodley further suggested in her interview that she wants to be true to her character and did not feel awkward about shedding her clothes for the camera.
"Everyone was freaked out because I'm nude, but in real life, when I have sex, I'm naked. I don't have a bra on, and I don't usually have panties on. So let's make a real movie! Let's bring truth to the scene! I didn't want to be exploited, but this girl—like most girls when they first have sex—doesn't know what she's doing," she said.
Woodley has always maintained a bold and honest attitude about the choices she makes and about her competitors. Despite being a face of many teenage-oriented film she had once openly criticized "Twilight" and relationship shared by the lead characters Bella Swan and Edward Cullen (played in the movies by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson).
"Twilight,' I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship," Woodley told Teen Vogue "She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve."
Interestingly, time and again Woodley has been compared to Jennifer Lawrence and with the kind of vision she has for herself as an actress, fans hope she has a long way to go.
Woodley's "White Bird in a Blizzard" is a French thriller and is directed by Gregg Araki. The film also stars Eva Greens in the lead role. The movie was premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 20 and its release is slated for later this year.
