Shailene Woodley has hit movies under her belt, but a specific dream role for the future in mind. “I would love to play Stevie Nicks,” she tells Women’s Health. “She’s just such a fascinating woman who’s lived such a life and is still living such a life. Her music was really profound for me in my life.”

The actress adds, “I love that there is no other Stevie Nicks in this world. She is so fully herself, and undividedly herself. That in itself is such a powerful lesson to take in and be like, ‘wow.’ No one is going to be the next Stevie Nicks, and Stevie Nicks was not the next anyone.”

“And I think that’s such beautiful advice for all of us. You do you, we do we,” explains Woodley. “She does she in such a beautiful way. I think it’d be great to sing in a film. I love to sing. I guess another dream movie would be a movie like Once. It’s so romantic and sensual and musical but doesn’t feel like a musical necessarily.”

In terms of her physical attributes, Woodley tells the magazine, “I guess I’m proud that I’m very fit.” She explains, “That’s not a physical feature but I’m very proud that if somebody was like, ‘Alright, we’re walking to Central Park right now. I’d be like, ‘let’s run to Central Park right now.’ I’m really proud of my ability to be fit or stay fit and honor my body in that way.”

“In a fight or flight situation, I consider myself a fighter, and so regardless of whether I would win or survive or anything, I want to know that I can give it my all,” says the Divergent star. “When I feel fit and when I feel strong, I feel like I can empower and fight back.”

What’s her favorite fuel? Woodley tells the outlet, “Sweet potatoes are unreal. I eat chocolate every day. Raw chocolate, hands down, the best gift to human beings. My favorite dish to cook…any sort of pot roast. In a ceramic enamel pot. You just can’t go wrong with the flavors. That’s always my go-to.”

“But what I do most often is generally an egg dish with whatever vegetables are in season because it takes 10 minutes, and you have the tastiest meal ever,” says the actress. “You got your protein, you got your veggies, you got a little carbs in there.” What do you think about what Woodley has to say?
