Divergent Star Shailene Woodley Is A Lover, Not A Fighter: “I Don’t Know If Humans Are Genetically Made To Be With One Person Forever”

Hey, fellas, listen up. Shailene Woodley is single and ready to mingle, just don’t expect her to settle down. In Marie Claire‘s April 2014 issue, the star of the upcoming action flick Divergent reveals that she doesn’t believe in monogamy.

“I just haven’t met anyone where I was like, ‘Wow I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you.’ I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever,” confesses the single actress, who also admits she hasn’t had much luck with the opposite sex. “I was the latest bloomer there ever was. I was still playing with Barbies at 14 and didn’t have my first kiss until 15-and-a-half. He had big, beautiful lips, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with those.’”

She may have been a late bloomer, but the now 22-year-old says she finally feels comfortable in her own skin. “My whole life I’ve been so self-conscious about being skinny,” Woodley explained. “And just recently I don’t care anymore. All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don’t really matter at all. My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair—things I’m so very grateful for now.”

Woodley is also grateful for the moments in her life when she is out of the spotlight. “I don’t pay any attention to the fan thing, because I think it’s a very strange culture nowadays,” Shailene says of fame. “People have always been fans of people, but I can’t relate to any of these girls or boys who scream. It’s idolizing someone you don’t know. None of these people know me.”

With that in mind, the star is also reluctant to communicate with people she doesn’t know on Twitter. “The whole social media thing is just a little too weird for me,” she says. “We’re all such narcissists, and that’s what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons.”
