  1. Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Shailene Woodley Take An Awesomely Dorky Selfie During Snowden

    Look at these two giant dorks. Don't you just want to hug JGL all day? Seriously though, someone needs to help Shailene's wig game (she's playing Snowden's girlfriend, Lindsay Mills) because that looks a bit of a mess.

  2. Things We Saw Today: A Divergent Barbie (Sigh)

    Although I appreciate that a Barbie of Divergent's Tris allows young fans to play as a strong female character, I'd be way more excited about this if the doll was realistically proportioned. Shailene Woodley got buff for Insurgent! Why shouldn't a Tris doll celebrate her physical strength?

  3. Jessica Chastain, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and More Actresses Chat About Being a Woman in Hollywood

    Hey, look, a folder full of women!

    As part of their series "Hollywood Sessions," the LA Times and EPIX have partnered to get Hollywood types together for chats about big Hollywood issues. And here's a preview of their chat with five big name actress/directors (Jessica Chastain, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Aniston, and Shailene Woodley), who were invited to talk about the dearth of women's stories in Hollywood and the continuing surprise the industry continues to have about successful lady-led films.

  5. Review: The Fault in Our Stars Is Beautiful, Imperfect, and Completely Worthwhile


    I held out a spectacularly long time. I would like that known. Tears did not leave my eyes until the film's third and final act. This is not to shame those for whom the tears came sooner; for many the weeping was but a foregone conclusion. For some they never came at all. For others they were entirely the point. But I'd just like it known.

  8. Comic Book Movie Roundup: (Almost) Au Revoir Hugh Jackman, TASM2 Director On the Mary Jane Scene That Almost Was


    It's been five X-movies (counting the upcoming Days of Future Past), one X-cameo, and one origin story-shaped cinematic travesty for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, but after one more solo film Jackman is hanging up his claws. He swears. He's almost one hundred percent certain. No, really.

  9. This Full Scene From The Fault In Our Stars Won’t Make You Cry. Probably.

    Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort star in this clip from The Fault in Our Stars, revealed at the MTV Movie Awards this past weekend. Something tells me this might be the only non-tear inducing scene in the whole film. But even so... Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. It’s A Rotten World, After All: On Divergent and YA Dystopias

    A young woman, small and troubled, faces off against a totalitarian dystopia bent on control of the remaining world after the disaster of total war. It may sound achingly familiar, but we haven’t quite been here before. Divergent, based on the popular book series by Veronica Roth, follows the story of Beatrice-turned-Tris (Shailene Woodley), a young woman existing in a world divided by Factions, castes based on different human temperaments rigidly upheld to preserve an everlasting peace. When an aptitude test fails to assign Tris a Faction, even the one her family comes from, Abnegation, she is told she is Divergent, a secret she must keep or lose her life. Choosing to enter the warrior class, Dauntless, instead of remaining with her family, Tris is subjected to a rigorous series of training tests both mental and physical to determine if she is allowed to stay in her chosen Faction or to be cast out as one of the homeless Factionless. But trouble is brewing between the governing Abnegation Faction and the coldly intelligent Erudites , and soon Tris, and those close to her, are drawn into a conflict bigger than themselves. I have not read Divergent or any of its accompanying sequels, and so entered the theater with fresh eyes, if a skeptical heart. What I found was a troubled film, one held up on weak foundations, and with a poor finishing job to match its underlying structure. No amount of beautiful CG landscaping can hide the flaws in Divergent’s grand design. Here we’ve got a knotty premise coupled with issues of casting, clarity, and what I assume is interpretation of original material. Though the film tries to make something out of what it has to work with, the results are, ultimately, unsatisfying, and speak to the larger picture of its particular genre.

  11. Things We Saw Today: Lady Fett

    Things We Saw Today

    "I remember playing with my Boba Fett action figure as a little kid, and my mom saying 'Boba Fett could be a woman, you can’t tell with the armor and the helmet.' This was in the mid- 90s, before the prequel films revealed Boba Fett to be some lame clone kid," says Tumblr user aJRAWINGS. "I still think of Boba Fett being female to this day, and I still think that’s cooler than the 'official' explanation." Ditto. (thanks, anon tipster!)

  12. Divergent’s Shailene Woodley On Twilight: “What Message Are We Sending To Young People?”

    Wise Words

    "Twilight, I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] 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? That is not going to help this world evolve." - Divergent star Shailene Woodley speaking to Teen Vogue. Hollywood is all about comparing one thing to another, especially when it comes to young adult properties (does that really ever help?), in order to cash in on the previous success. Whether it's comparing "love stories" or pitting the lead characters against each other, it's nice to see Woodley addressing the issues straight on. (via Gossip Cop) Previously in Women in Film

  13. Shailene Woodley Won’t Be Having Any Of Your Pitting-Ladies-Against-Ladies Nonsense

    Today in Awesome

    "If my character [from Divergent] and Katniss from The Hunger Games battled it out? I don't know. I don't feel like they would actually battle. I feel like it'd be like, 'You're a strong lady? I'm a strong lady, too. Let's combine forces and bring it together.'"Shailene Woodley in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, providing us with the YA version of that time Amy Adams said she'd rather Lois Lane and Wonder Woman work together to get stuff done instead of fighting over some dude, y'know? Or when Jessica Chastain called out the media for perpetuating “the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along" when people were talking about a (made up) feud between her and Jennifer Lawrence.

  14. This Is the Last Trailer Divergent Has to Convince You To See It

    Meddling Kids

    Here it is: The final trailer for Divergent, based on the first book in Veronica Roth's best-selling YA trilogy. When it comes out on March 21st, will you be in line? The way the studio's releasing trailers and pics seemingly out into the ether makes me think we might have another The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones on our hands. Seriously, the only organic buzz I've heard about this movie is people talking about how it affects star Shailene Woodley playing Mary Jane in the Amazing Spider-Man sequels. But it could surprise me and be a big success. We'll see. (via: Digital Spy) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  16. The Divergent Teaser Puts Shailene Woodley In Action

    Cautiously Optimistic

    When they say teaser, they really mean teaser. To me, this looks like one of those pre-teaser teasers. I normally hate those but in this case, you actually get a lot out of 13-seconds including a Maggie Q cameo, a brief look at Kate Winslet, and Shailene Woodley showing off some serious moves. And well, probably a bunch of other stuff fans of the Veronica Roth novel will appreciate but I haven't read the book so I can't be sure. Divergent fans, what say you?

  18. Shailene Woodley Opens Up About What Would Have Been Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Mary Jane

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    "She was only going to be in four scenes...I think it’s really incredibly smart that she’s not in it, looking back at it now because they’re introducing so many characters and MJ is such a vital character that it makes sense to hold off for future movies to introduce her." - Shailene Woodley speaking to Empire Magazine at San Diego Comic-Con. Last month we learned Woodley was cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 completely. Mary Jane is set to play a larger role in the next film but it's still unclear whether or not Woodley will pick it back up. Although she was there to promote Divergent, Empire also managed to ask the actress if she uttered Mary Jane's famous introduction line from the comics (the panel shown here). "I did say it", she told them. (via Empire) Previously in San Diego Comic-Con

  19. Mary Jane Cut From The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Make Room for More Gwen Stacey

    What's that? Even more Spider-man movies without the annoying love triangle? Sold!

    Despite the pacing and narrative problems of the first The Amazing Spider-Man, Sony's set to make not just two but three more films for your friendly neighborhood web-slinger. They originally had a trilogy in mind but decided otherwise -- and apparently this expansion that means that Mary Jane Watson's being bumped from the second movie to the third. So what are they going to do with all those scenes Shailene Woodley has already shot? Who knows? Who cares? More Gwen Stacey, please!

  20. Amazing Spider-Man 2 Declines Jackpot; No Longer Features Mary Jane Watson

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    Just a few days ago we were saying to The Amazing-Spider-Man franchise, "Whoah, buddy, slow down! You can't just greenlight two more sequels when you haven't finished your first one yet! Except I guess you can. I mean you just did. Just... stay safe, Amazing Spider-Man. There are people who care about you." Among those people are actress Shailene Woodley, tapped to play Mary Jane Watson in a small role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but what everybody assumed would be a larger one come TASM 3, after the assumed death of Gwen Stacy. Woodley now says that she won't be appearing in TASM 2 at all.
