Shailene Woodley is smart, friendly, and personable, and she’s currently on screen starring in Summit Entertainment’s Divergent based on the popular young adult novel series. She’s also got the much-anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book The Fault in Our Stars coming to theaters this year. And because of her recent work in films, Woodley was chosen by the National Association of Theatre Owners as the winner of this year’s Female Star of Tomorrow award. Woodley picked up the award during the Big Screen Achievement Awards gala at the 2014 CinemaCon in Vegas and before taking the stage, she discussed tackling the lead roles in Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, the responsibilities of handling book adaptations, working with Ashley Judd & Kate Winslet, training for action scenes, and stunts.
The Plot of The Fault in Our Stars:
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us – on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. The Fault in Our Stars, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
