Last week, we discussed Shailene Woodley’s Marie Claire interview, and how she sounded full of herself and like she had no real gauge of how normal, non-celebrity people lived. I was slightly remorseful for opening the floodgates, because it seemed like about half of you had strong negative feelings about her already and the other half were more generous towards her. For the record, I am willing to give her a break on all of her hippie-granola stuff because I do think that’s who she really is – a really crunchy hippie. But I’m not going to give her a pass just because “she’s a kid.” She’s 21 years old – very young, but she’s old enough to know what she’s saying and how she comes across.
The interview was conducted by Emma Stone, and Emma brings out a better side of Shailene. Shailene is still rather full of herself – and it’s really obvious that she thinks that she’s at the same level as Emma, career-wise, which is laughable – but Shailene does explain herself much better here.
