She's fresh off of a career-igniting past twelve months, and Shailene Woodley has been selected to cover of the June 2012 issue of ASOS magazine.
The 20-year-old actress looked elegant in an ASOS Denim Shirt with Rare Crochet Lace Knickers and ASOS Mixed Frame Cat-Eye Sunglasses for the Jason Nocito shot front page while opening up about topics such as her penchant for dark roles and the criticism she received over her Oscars dress.
Highlights from Miss Woodley's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ASOS!
On not paying attention to fame and fortune:
"I don't pay any attention to all of that stuff. I never have. I know nothing about the industry, nothing about the 'business' and I intend to always be that way. There are more options coming in for me [since The Descendants], but that really doesn't affect me, because I will never do a movie I'm not passionate about. I'd rather be in a two-minute scene in a phenomenal Meryl Streep movie than the lead of an action-hero film."
On her penchant for dark roles:
"Movies are where my heart is at. I love dark roles – roles that appear scary. Not in a horror film way, but like 'Black Swan' or 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. Films that take the audience on an emotional journey. And I would love to play Patti Smith in a film one day – I'm re-reading her autobiography, I'm obsessed with it."
On criticism of her Valentino Coutore Oscars dress:
"A lot of people didn't like it. They were like, 'she's 20, she's covering herself up, why is she doing that?' But to me it felt classy and elegant and that's what I think of when I think of the Oscars. It felt simple and elegant and it still represented who I am. Most of my clothes come through friends – this cardigan is two years old and these jeans are my friend's boyfriend's."
On what the future holds:
"I'm excited to become a bada** archer. I want to be able to shoot a small pen dot on the wall, 20 feet away. I want to be like [The Hunger Games'] Katniss."
