Shailene Woodley is the cover girl of this weeks Backstage Magazine. She is also interviewed and there is a new photo of Shailene.
“Growing up, I never wanted to be in magazines, I never wanted to do interviews, I never wanted to wear fancy clothes and go to carpets,” she says. “I wanted to be a schoolteacher and act on the side.” She’s passionate about the environment, studies herbalism, and harbors a secret desire to be a yoga teacher. And she has no interest in buying a home in the Hollywood Hills; when in town, she stays with her family in Simi Valley, where she grew up. But she wants to make Hawaii her permanent residence. “When I went there for ‘Descendants,’ it really set a tone for my entire life of how I wanted to live and who I wanted to be,” she says. “It grounded me. It reminds me to have a separate life outside this industry. I can forget that people watch what I do.”
