Shailene Woodley: “My Boobs Shrank… No Bra, No Problem!”

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Shailene Woodley opens up about her recent physical transformations, and how she learned to stop being “mean” to herself in the June issue of InStyle. After gaining muscle for her action packed role in Divergent, the actress lost weight and chopped off her hair to portray a terminally ill teenager in The Fault In Our Stars.

“I look at pictures of me with long hair and I think, ‘Who is that person?'” she tells the magazine. “Even my voice and the way I hold myself has changed.”

Woodley notes, “I’m in a place where I feel healthier than I’ve ever been, and my body is exactly where it wants to be.” “I feel like I’m a woman,” she says, before adding, “My boobs shrank. No one tells you that when you lose weight. No bra, no problem!”

Playing a cancer patient in The Fault In Our Stars also gave Woodley a new outlook. “It changed my whole life and put things in perspective,” she says. “I realized I was good at being outwardly positive because that’s how I am by nature. But internally, I was so mean to myself.”

“Realizing I needed to make a shift was a big moment for me. ‘F–k you insecurity. F–k you lack of confidence!'” she continues. Emma Stone tells InStyle that Woodley represents a “different type of girl.”

“Shailene is growing into this fascinating woman who is not afraid to express her opinions and beliefs to the public,” says Stone. “It’s brave. She’s going to remain a positive figure for girls as they grow up.” What do you think of Woodley’s comments?
