Actress Shailene Woodley, 22, star of the highly anticipated teen adaptation film Divergent has let her feeling be known about another teen adaptation, the Twilight movie per Hello Magazine.
Shailene said, “Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship.”
In the past, Stephanie Meyer’s hugely successful vampire novel has seen its share of negativity, but Shailene took it a step further.
She indicated that the story involving Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen played by Kristen Steward and Robert Pattinson, would not help the future of the world.
“She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself? What message are we sending to young people?” asked Shailene, before adding: “That is not going to help this world evolve.”
Shailene Woodley’s break out role in George Clooney’s The Desendants in 2011 won her Best Supporting Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards. She took two years off before filming The Spectacular Now, a teen love story, which was critically acclaimed at the Sundance Film Festival.
In her interview with Teen Vogue, Shailene said: “I didn’t do a move for two years because I didn’t read anything that was inspiring to me.”
“After The Desendants, everybody was like, ‘You’ve got to ride the wave!’ And I was like, ‘You ride the wave and it eventually crashes on the shore. That doesn’t work out! I’m going to just sit here and paddleboard’,” she said.
Shailene Woodley’s newest film, Divergent, another film adaptation of a best selling young adult novel is set for release on April 4th. She will soon be out promoting John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars opposite Ansel Elgort and thriller White Bird in a Blizzard with Eva Green.
