Shailene Woodley (born November 15th 1991) is a movie star perhaps best known for her roles in 'Divergent' and 'The Fault In Our Stars'.
Net worth: Shailene Woodley has a net worth of $9 million according to Celebrity Net Worth (2015).
Film career: Among Shailene Woodley's first acting roles were 2002's TV shows 'Without a Trace' and 'The District'. In 2005, she appeared in 'A Place Called Home' which won her a Young Artist Award nomination. Her other TV appearances include 'Felicity: An American Girl Adventure', 'Crossing Jordan', 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager'. She landed her first movie role in 2011 with 'The Descendants' also starring George Clooney. She was subsequently nominated for a Golden Globe and won an Independent Spirit Award. She won Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for her appearance alongside Miles Teller in 2013's adaptation of Tim Tharp's book 'The Spectacular Now', and followed up the role in Gregg Araki's thriller 'White Bird in a Blizzard' the following year. In 2014, she was hugely praised for her part as a cancer suffering teenager in John Green's 'The Fault in Our Stars'. She was cast as the lead character in the first film adaptation of Veronica Roth's 'Divergent' franchise, and was signed to reprise the role in the second movie, 'Insurgent'.
Personal life: Woodley grew up in Simi Valley, California where she went to Simi Valley High School. Her parents Lori and Lonnie both work in schools. She discovered she had scoliosis as a teenager and had to wear a brace to correct the spinal curvature.
Apparently amazing actors don't necessarily make for a good show.
It's not everyday you see top Hollywood stars the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Nicole Kidman band together for a TV drama, but that's what made the prospect of HBO's 'Big Little Lies' all the more exciting. Unfortunately, the story itself has on the whole proved rather mediocre.
Reese Witherspoon stars in 'Big Little Lies'
Based on the 2014 best-selling Liane Moriarty novel of the same name, this 7-episode mini-series seems to be something of a disappointment to the general consensus of critics. It's about a trio of Californian housewives whose children all go to the same elementary school, with their personal lives intertwining and culminating in disaster.

Here's another remarkable biopic from Oliver Stone, who has used all-star casts and intensely pointed filmmaking to trace the lives of such people as JFK, Nixon, Jim Morrison and George W. Bush. And now he turns his attention to whistleblower Edward Snowden. This is an urgent, skilfully made film that manages to avoid preachy politics as it asks the central question: was Snowden a traitor or a patriot?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Ed, a nerdy genius who never went to university but was spotted by CIA trainer Corbin (Rhys Ifans) and brought into the fold. Rising through the ranks, he moves from Virginia to Switzerland, Japan and Hawaii, accompanied by his long-suffering girlfriend Lindsay (Shailene Woodley), who isn't allowed to know what he does for a living. Over the years, his faith in America's government is shaken as he discovers the scale of its data-gathering operation, collecting all telephone and internet information on every person on earth, whether or not they're a suspect. And he believes that the taxpayers have a right to know what their elected officials are doing.
The script tells the story as Ed describes his life to filmmaker Laura Poitras (Melissa Leo) and two Guardian journalists (Zachary Quinto and Tom Wilkinson) while hiding in a Hong Kong hotel, an event recounted in the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour. Eventually, this element of the story generates some proper action as the CIA tracks him down and gives chase. Stone orchestrates these scenes expertly, generating some real adrenaline without sacrificing the bigger narrative. And Gordon-Levitt is simply remarkable, vanishing into the role so effectively that the final dissolve to the real Snowden is barely perceptible. His chemistry with Woodley is complex and engaging (even with a gratuitous sex scene), creating a terrific central love story to guide the audience through the events.
Continue reading: Snowden Review
Edward Snowden always knew he wanted to serve his country and, as most young men and women who feel the need to serve their country, he enrolled in the United States Army Reserves, training was tough and it took a toll on his body, an accident led to Snowden fracturing both his legs, his plans for the future were thrown into chaos and he had to evaluate a new way to serve - as well as make a living.
Turing to one of his other natural skills, Snowden continued to hone his computer skills and finally applied for a job at the CIA. Working his way up the ranks, Snowden became an intrinsic member of staff and it lead him to be offered a new job at the NSA by their deputy director. His job was to analyse the internet, to find new ways to intercept the one communication from the 'bad guy' amongst all the innocent communications each person sends on a day to day basis but what he discovers is that the NSA have access to far more knowledge and information than he or any other normal citizen would expect.
Though he's never believed in sharing state secrets, now he's privy to this information, Snowden knows he must do something with it and that he might be putting his life on the line in order to bring this enormous data privacy breach to light. Sneaking out files via a micro drive hidden in his rubik's cube, Snowden contacts three journalists Laura Poitras, Ewen MacAskill and Glenn Greenwald with his newly found knowledge and they begin to unfold the information.

For Allegiant, the third of four films in the Divergent Series, Shailene Woodley enjoyed slipping back into her role as the conflicted hero Tris...
Especially as the movie expands on the post-apocalyptic world by sending Tris, her boyfriend Four (Theo James) and their friends beyond Chicago to the futuristic home of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare, run by the mysterious David (Jeff Daniels).
"It's a completely different organism," Woodley says of the Bureau. "It has its own political leaders. It's a full-blown running society. And I think when Tris and Four enter they're a little hesitant of it and also very keen on the luxuries that come with a world that's not war-torn. It's functioning and has access to things that they didn't have in Chicago."

In June 2013, a high-flying 29-year-old government employee named Edward Snowdon suddenly found himself the most wanted man in the world after leaking classified documents from the US government to the media. An intelligent young man, whose army career at just 20 led him to join the CIA and eventually become an NSA contractor where he was faced with what he deemed as seriously questionable ethics from his colleagues, and those above him. Disturbed by the lies spoken by those around him and with a direct concern for the welfare of the people, he sought justice. He knew what such a move would entail, and indeed he was accused of being a traitor when the government tried to suggest that his actions had a negative impact on their counterterrorism programmes, but he knew he couldn't watch the citizens of Earth be continually deceived.

MTV Movie Awards bring out the stars, as does the Avengers 2 premiere in Los Angeles. Matthias Schoenaerts is accompanied by costars Kate Winslet and Carey Mulligan at two London premieres. And we get further glimpses of a Western with Michael Fassbender, the next Terminator action romp and Paul Rudd as a tiny superhero in Ant-Man...
The MTV Movie Awards caught the headlines this week, not for their offbeat winners but for the usual antics of the stars who were in attendance. Those on hand to walk the blue carpet included multiple winner Shailene Woodley as well as Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Hailee Steinfeld, Rebel Wilson, Miles Teller, Mark Ruffalo, Michael B. Jordan, Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff.
Actually, all of the Marvel Avengers were at the awards, then reassembled two nights later for the Los Angeles premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens next week. This time the carpet was red, and attendees included Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Rudd and Paul Bettany.
'The Maze Runner' and 'Neighbors' also scooped awards.
It's difficult to argue with the results of this year's MTV Movie Awards victors, who took home their much-deserved accolades on Sunday (April 12th 2015). The top prize of Movie Of The Year went to Josh Boone's adaptation of the John Green novel 'The Fault In Our Stars' - but who else won big at the 2015 ceremony?
Shailene Woodley took home a couple of awards herself; first for Best Female Performance in 'The Fault In Our Stars', and second for Best Kiss with Ansel Elgort. 'The Maze Runner' star Dylan O'Brien also won big, landing Breakthrough Performance, Best Hero and, of course, Best Fight with Will Poulter. O'Brien will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. Meanwhile, Zac Efron's abs in 'Neighbors' predictably won him Best Shirtless Performance, while his onscreen chemistry with Dave Franco made them Best Duo. 'Neighbors' was also the winner of Best WTF Moment, with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne taking home the award.

Shailene Woodley - A variety of stars were photographed as they arrived for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards which were held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 12th April 2015
Despite not-that-great reviews, audiences stayed loyal to the Divergent franchise this weekend.
Despite its overwhelming popularity, which easily drove it to the top of the box office chart, Insurgent's estimated $45 million opening weekend still puts it a few million short of its predecessor, Divergent's $54,6 million debut. Is this sequel fatigue at work then? Well, while the numbers haven't been confirmed yet, the film might actually catch up to the first movie in the franchise, but only just. It's looking unlikely that Insurgent will match initial estimates of a $60 million debut and it's not because of stiff box office competition.
Despite largely negative reviews, Insurgent seems likely to match the success of its predecessor, Divergent.
The other debut this weekend, Sean Penn's The Gunman, is falling far behind - not only compared to Insurgent, but also its own modest expectations, Variety reports. The Open Road thriller, which made just $1,8 million on Friday. Penn stars as an ex-Special Forces soldier with PTSD who's forced to take on one final mission to clear his name. Idris Elba, Javier Bardem and Jasmine Trinca round out the cast.

Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Al Pacino, Jennifer Garner and more walk red carpets in New York, while Mira Sorvino leads the charge in Los Angeles. First-glimpse trailers debut for the Marine dog adventure Max, the teen drama Paper Towns and Adam Sandler's alien invasion action-comedy Pixels...
Before hitting cinemas this weekend, Insurgent held its New York premiere on Monday with a line-up of stars including cast members Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Suki Waterhouse and Zoe Kravitz.
A sharp improvement on the original, this second entry in The Divergent Series has a much stronger sense of its premise and characters, which makes it much more exciting to watch. Where Divergent felt gimmicky and a bit shallow, this chapter pushes the characters much deeper, giving the actors a chance to bring them more engagingly to life, which makes the odd set-up more involving as well.
It picks up immediately where the first film ended, with Tris (Shailene Woodley) escaping from post-apocalyptic, segmented-society Chicago with her boyfriend Four (Theo James), her brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and their shifty cohort Peter (Miles Teller). Hiding out in the Amity agricultural community, they know that Erudite leader Janine (Kate Winslet) has sent her goons (Jai Courtney and Mekhi Phifer) to find them. Actually, she needs a divergent to open an artefact from the pre-war days so she can rid Chicago of pesky divergents forever. When their location is discovered, Tris and pals head back into the city, teaming up with factionless leader Joanna (Naomi Watts) and getting help from the head of Candor (Daniel Dae Kim) before going to Erudite to face Janine.
The story has a strong push to it, driving these rebels ever closer to a confrontation with their nasty nemesis, and their journey is fraught with surprise wrinkles, vicious battles and some mind-bending imagery. In fact, there are so many dreams, flashbacks and computer simulations that it's not always clear if what's on screen is actually happening or not. But it all looks so cool that we hang on to discover where it'll go next, so the two hours passes briskly, and sometimes breathlessly. The film looks terrific, as director Robert Schwentke keeps the focus on the characters while creating some amazing effects around them, especially in the simulation sequences.
