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.
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.

'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.

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.

'Insurgent' doesn't build on its predecessor.
Oh dear. Insurgent. Listen, we probably shouldn't have had much expectation for this. Divergent wasn't very good, coming across, as it did, as a lazy hastily produced Hunger Games knock-off with that bloke from The Inbetweeners thrown into the mix to play the Liam Hemsworth bit.
Divergent was a hit for Lionsgate, despite middling reviews
And although Catching Fire built on the steady foundations of The Hunger Games, Divergent simply doesn't have the source material to do the same and, as such, Insurgent is a weak film that will nevertheless make Lionsgate a few dollars this weekend.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson rock Paris Fashion Week, while Insurgent premieres in London as the new James Bond film shoots on a nearby street. Upcoming movie trailers pair-up Kevin Hart with Will Ferrell, Helen Mirren with Ryan Reynolds, and Diane Keaton with Morgan Freeman...
In Paris this week, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made headlines when they shot a sequence for Zoolander 2 on the catwalk during Valentino's Paris Fashion Week show. As their characters Derek and Hansel, they strutted to the strains of The Human League's Don't You Want Me, followed by a p[arade of high-fashion models. The film is due next February. Watch Ben Stiller And Owen Wilson Steal The Runway At Paris Fashion.
Shailene Woodley and Theo James led a line-up of red carpet eye candy at the world premiere of the Divergent sequel Insurgent this week in London. Guests included stars from TV shows like The Hills and Made in Chelsea, plus musicians, models and athletes, as well as Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent novels. The movie is out next week.
Shailene Woodley has praised Edward Snowden for his integrity.
Shailene Woodley, the star of Divergent who plays Edward Snowden's girlfriend in Oliver Stone's forthcoming biopic, has called the controversial whistle-blower a "hero". The 23-year-old actress shares Stone's reverential views on the former NSA contractor and told E!'s Marc Malkin that she respects Snowden for his integrity.
Shailene Woodley plays Edward Snowden's girlfriend in Oliver Stone's forthcoming movie
"I define a hero as somebody, who against the judgment of other people, if they believe something will positively impact the world and they choose to do it and honor their integrity, that's what I sort of consider a hero, no matter how big or small a feat they create," she said.

There's an unusual honesty to this film, which is an odyssey into the inner life of a teen girl. Gregg Araki has made a career out of understanding the often tortured inner workings of the adolescent mind, and this is one of his most beautifully crafted films yet, artfully circling around a central mystery while digging deeply into each of the characters. And while it seems a bit straightforward for an Araki movie, it's packed with his usual darker corners, especially in the surprising final act.
It's set in the autumn of 1988, when Kat (Shailene Woodley) feels her life fall apart. She's just 17, on the verge of womanhood when her mother (Eva Green) inexplicably vanishes, leaving her dad (Christopher Meloni) struggling to help her through puberty. Her best pals (Mark Indelicato and Gabourey Sidibe) are some help, but at the same time she begins to feel a growing distance from her boyfriend Phil (Shiloh Fernandez). Is all of this connected, or is this because of Phil's own family issues? As she plays through the various clues in her mind, the answers are also eluding the local tough-guy detective (Thomas Jane). A few years later, Kat returns home from her studies at Berkeley to visit her dad. And maybe this time she'll finally find out what happened.
The film is a beautiful depiction of the awkwardness of being a teenager, when everything seems wrong but feelings are so strong. Araki fills the screen with sumptuous imagery including dreamy sequences set in a snowy landscape where Kat mentally searches for her mother. And flashbacks offer more earthy glimpses into this difficult mother-daughter relationship, especially as Kat and her once-glamorous mother begin to shift in their roles. Clearly, Kat suspects that her mother ran away after seducing Phil, but the truth isn't quite this obvious.
