Every Time Shailene Woodley Has Reminded Us Shes Nothing Like the Rest of Us

Every Time Shailene Woodley Has Reminded Us She's Nothing Like the Rest of Us
As Shailene Woodley once said, "my religion is the Earth...I believe in trees." Scroll on for all the times she went to great lengths to prove she's living on an entirely different plane of existence.
Shailene Woodley is not like the rest of us.

As Hollywood's ultimate A-list outsider, the Big Little Lies star has never passed up an opportunity during the span of her decade-plus career to remind us that, though she's an actor, she doesn't buy into the trappings of celebrity or even the traditional material world. Shailene, who rose to fame on the ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, has become something of the poster child for the star who wants to be anything but.

After all, this is the woman who once told Paper magazine in 2011, "I'm fine with saying the normal 'F' and 'C' words, but famous and celebrity are off-limits in my book, I just think they are nasty words."






And perhaps she'll start rubbing off on fiancé Aaron Rodgers. While accepting the MVP Award at the NFL honors Feb. 6, the quarterback subtly let slip that he's off the market. "2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing, memorable moments," he said. "I got engaged and I played some of the best football of my career."

Shailene Woodley's Best Looks
Though some may call their romance a whirlwind, the duo seemed to always know their love story was a touchdown. "They had a very intense connection from the beginning," a source told E! News. "They both knew early on that it was something special and different from what they had experienced in other relationships."

Now, in honor of their engagement, let's take a look at all the times Shailene has gone to great lengths to prove to us that she's living on an entirely different plane of existence. At least now she knows she'll always have Aaron right there with her.

No Time for TV
Despite getting her start in the medium as The O.C.'s original Kaitlin Cooper before taking us inside The Secret Life of the American Teenager and earning an Emmy nomination for her work on HBO's Big Little Lies, Shailene has no interest in either watching or even owning a television set. "I technically don't have a home anywhere, so I supposed there's no TV to put in that home. But I haven't had a TV since I moved out of my parent' house at 18," she told E! News' Jason Kennedy on the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards. "All my friends who watch TV, I just ask them when they have time to...I'm a reader, so I always read a book instead of turning on my TV."

No Tech in General
Though she is, indeed, holding an iPhone in the photo above, Shailene has gone on record as being rather anti-technology across the board. "I'm not a big technology person. I don't even have a smartphone," she told The Daily Beast in 2014. "I don't even have a cell phone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone."

No Shortcuts in the Kitchen
That anti-tech attitude? It extends into the kitchen, as she told BlackBook in 2011. "I was 14, and my grandma is a naturopath, and she took my blood—she does live blood and cell analysis," she explained. "She was like, 'You should probably eat more vegetables, and microwaves are not great for you.' And so I started doing research, and I haven't used a microwave since."

She Eats Bugs...
Yeah, you read that right. In 2015, in a BTS video for her Nylon cover shoot, Shailene copped to having munched down on some insects in the past. "I've eaten ants and that was great," she said. "And June bugs, that was great. I think the future of food is in insects, so we'll see what happens."

...and Clay
Despite most nutritionists and physicians not recommending it, Shailene also eats clay, as she revealed to Into the Gloss in 2014. "For example, clay is one of the best things you can put in your body. One of my friends was making a clay toothpaste that you swallow instead of spit out," she explained. "But I first heard about the benefits of eating clay from a taxi driver. He was African and was saying that, where he's from, the women eat clay when they're pregnant. Seriously—ask your taxi drivers where they are from and about their customs. You will learn a lot."

Straight From the Source
When it comes to her drinking water, Shailene gives a hard pass to the bottled stuff. "I think everything about my lifestyle is fairly alternative. I gather my own spring water from mountains every month," she told Flaunt in 2013. And that ethos carries over to her food, as well. "I go to a farm to get my food... I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It's an entire lifestyle." she added.

"I would rather actually kill my meat than buy it in plastic wrap," she told BlackBook. "I don't buy meat from Whole Foods, I order it direct from a farm. I mean, I'm like extremist."

No New Clothes
No designer duds for this girl. At least, not unless they've been previously owned. "Kitson? Yeah, that'll never happen. I exclusively buy used clothes," she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2014."I'm going to be a citizen of this planet, and I'm going to do my responsibility and live in stride with nature instead of constantly fighting against her."

She Once Lived in an RV
During her guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress confirmed she once lived in an RV for two months and slept in Walmart parking lots.

Unlocking Her Dreams
Shailene's interest in dreams has led her to cross paths with an herb known as mugwort. "You can burn a little before bed or sleep on a mugwort pillow. It's found in all parts of America, East Coast and West—anytime you see weeds growing through cracks in a parking lot, there's probably mugwort. You can harvest it yourself, dry it, bundle it, and burn it like sage," she told Harper's Bazaar in 2014. "Specifically, mugwort is associated with lucid dreaming, which I've experienced a few times. I'm no expert, but when I've tried it, I've used a technique where you fall asleep while knocking on a wall. Something about that keeps your brain awake while your body goes to sleep, inducing that great moment when you realize, Wow, I'm conscious of the fact that I'm dreaming."

An Affinity for Oil
Shailene swears by the power of oil pulling, which stems from traditional Ayurvedic medicine, despite there not being much evidence to it being a health benefit. "I love a natural way to heal. You can do something called ‘oil pulling' where you swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out," she told Into the Gloss. "It's amazing! It really makes your teeth whiter, because the plaque on your teeth is not water soluble, it's fat-soluble. So the lipids have to dissolve in fats, which is why oil works in your mouth. I prefer sesame oil, but they're both good."

Sun Where the Sun Don't Shine
Another alternative method to healing that Shailene likes to employ is giving her "vagina a little vitamin D," as she explained to Into the Gloss. "I was reading an article written by an herbalist I studied about yeast infections and other genital issues. She said there's nothing better than vitamin D," she said. "If you're feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine."
