Shailene Woodley - Shailene Woodley Eyes Patti Smith Movie Role

Actress Shailene Woodley has named her dream role - she's desperate to play rocker Patti Smith on the big screen.
The Descendants star admits she's obsessed with the godmother of punk and has been reading Smith's memoir Just Kids, about her bohemian days in New York's infamous Hotel Chelsea.
She tells Asos Magazine, "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."
The 20 year old also confesses she isn't tempted to sign up for a big-budget blockbuster - because she'd rather be known for playing smaller, more interesting parts.
She adds, "I don't pay any attention to all of that stuff (fame). 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."
