Shailene Woodley appears on the cover of the June 2012 issue of ASOS magazine.
Known for her breakthrough performance in ‘The Descendants’ and her love for her red-carpet run during awards season, the actress looks like a typical teenager wearing an ASOS denim shirt with Rare lace hot pants, ASOS cat eye sunglasses and roller skates.
The rest of her editorial, shot by Jason Nocito, sees her wearing an on-trend pyjama look and a mesh midi dress, both by ASOS.
In her interview she shrugs off criticism about her Valentino Couture Oscars dress, she talks about not paying attention to fame and fortune and her love for dark film roles.
You can read the whole of Shailene’s interview over at ASOS magazine. Here are some extracts:
On criticism of her Valentino Couture Oscars dress: “A lot of people didn’t like it. They were like, ‘she’s 20, she’s covering herself up, why is she doing that?’ But to me it felt classy and elegant and that’s what I think of when I think of the Oscars. It felt simple and elegant and it still represented who I am. Most of my clothes come through friends – this cardigan is two years old and these jeans are my friend’s boyfriend’s.”
On not paying attention to fame and fortune: “I don’t pay any attention to all of that stuff. I never have. I know nothing about the industry, nothing about the ‘business’ and I intend to always be that way. There are more options coming in for me (since The Descendants), but that really doesn’t affect me, because I will never do a movie I’m not passionate about. I’d rather be in a two-minute scene in a phenomenal Meryl Streep movie than the lead of an action-hero film.”
On her penchant for dark roles: “Movies are where my heart is at. I love dark roles – roles that appear scary. Not in a horror film way, but like ‘Black Swan’ or ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’. Films that take the audience on an emotional journey. And I would love to play Patti Smith in a film one day – I’m re-reading her autobiography, I’m obsessed with it.”
On what the future holds: “I’m excited to become a badass archer. I want to be able to shoot a small pen dot on the wall, 20 feet away. I want to be like (The Hunger Games’) Katniss.”
