I’ve updated the gallery with a new photoshoot of Shailene, this time for Vanity Fair Italia–and it features some really striking looks. The behind the scenes video from the shoot can also be viewed below, with some really gothic and atmospheric vibes that make me hope to see Shailene in something of this style on film one day.
Yet another beautiful photoshoot, and yet another cover for Shailene. She’s featured on the cover of luxury lifestyle magazine, C California Style – an in addition to the new photos, there’s also an accompanying interview – which is a really great read if you haven’t had a chance to already.
C MAGAZINE – Shailene Woodley is something of an anomaly in Hollywood: She eschews most of the trappings of fame, calls acting “a hobby” and at the moment does not even have a home to call her own. Currently she is staying with a friend in Silver Lake.
“I’m still on the road. … I don’t have a permanent place anywhere. I do have piles everywhere. My friends call them Shai piles. I have very generous friends who house me all over the world. So much of my life is in hotels that if I’m in a city where I have friends, I ask if I can stay with them … or I find a condo or somewhere where there’s a kitchen,” she says, adding: “I just have to be able to cook. My constitution is not built for fancy food three times a day. … Sometimes your body just wants a cutting board and a knife — just to chop up a good salad.”
Simply dressed in a white cotton shirt and black jeans, she carries a heavy bag with books and a laptop to the Chateau Marmont where we meet.
She has 3.8 million Instagram followers and uses her platform to advance causes important to her. Nonetheless, she is conflicted about social media. “I wrestle with [it]. Is it something that’s beneficial? I don’t know. I still have it. And we’ll see if I have it tomorrow …”
Woodley is a strong environmental activist and also campaigned doggedly for Bernie Sanders during the last election. In 2016 she was arrested during a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, which was being built across sites sacred to Native Americans. (While the Obama administration denied approval for the construction in response to the protests, President Donald Trump greenlit the pipeline just days into his term.) Jailed for a few hours, she pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to a year of probation. “I’m chronically and constantly fired up about injustice, whether it’s environmental or social,” she explains.
These days, of course, the star of HBO’s blockbuster series Big Little Lies is recognized everywhere she goes. “The one thing I don’t like is when someone just stops me, doesn’t even say hello, and whips out their phone to take a photo. I’m not cool with that.”
I could seriously watch these women discuss anything and everything, such a great dynamic! I’ll work on adding screen captures from the videos very soon.
Here’s the footage from the Snowden press conference held earlier tody at the Toronto International Film Festival. We’ve also updated the gallery with some photos of Shailene from the panel. Enjoy.
A new trailer for Snowden was shown at Comic-Con on Thursday. Here it is:
INDIEWIRE – Oliver Stone is back in political firecracker mode to tell the true story of everyone’s favorite whisteblower Edward Snowden.
Oliver Stone hasn’t made a movie since 2012’s critical and box office disaster “Savages,” but you should never count out the Oscar-winning provocateur. This September, the filmmaker finally returns to the big screen in the same political firecracker mode that has given him some of his most blazing and timeless classics, from “Platoon” to “Nixon” and “JFK,” and this time around he’s gunning for the NSA with the true story of Edward Snowden.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as one of the world’s most controversial whisteblowers, “Snowden” tracks the eponymous hacker’s rise from failed Special Forces trainee (he was discharged after he broke both of his legs) to CIA hotshot and ultimate betrayer. The drama is based on Luke Harding’s “The Snowden Files” and Anatoly Kucherena’s “Time of the Octopus” and was filmed outside of the United States out of fear of governmental interference from the NSA.
The last time Snowden graced the big screen it was in Laura Poitras’ Oscar-winning documentary “Citzenfour.” Will Stone find similar luck with the Academy? Watch the trailer below (courtesy of IMBD) and find out. “Snowden,” co-starring Nicolas Cage and Shailene Woodley, opens September 16.
