Woodley was famously cuffed and led away from a protest in North Dakota last year, all captured via Facebook Live.
Divergent star Shailene Woodley has spoken out about her run-in with the law last year, when she was arrested as part of the protest against the oil pipeline at Standing Rock.
The 25 year old star, a long-term advocate for Native American rights, was detained by police while protesting the Dakota Access pipeline at the reservation in North Dakota back in October 2016. Just before her arrest, she recalled seeing two American military tanks turn up at the protest.
“This is some Divergent shit,” she said during an interview with Marie Claire for September’s issue, casually dropping in the dystopian trilogy that made her famous. “The only time in my life that I saw a tank like that was on set in Atlanta.”
The Bernie Sanders supporter opened up about her political interest.
She may only be 25, but Shailene Woodley has been extremely active in political matters outside of her acting career, and now reports suggest that she's considering a career in congress herself. After all, she is very vocal about her opinions on society and governmental issues.

We can't forget the 'Big Little Lies' actress getting arrested during a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota last year, and indeed all her work on environmental issues, and it seems that these causes may contribute to a future in politics.

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.

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.
