Woodley: Clooney is incredible

George Clooney and Shailene Woodley play father and daughter in The Descendants

Shailene Woodley has said George Clooney taught her "how to be a better human being" on the set of the new film The Descendants.

Rising star Shailene, who previously starred in US family drama The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, plays the heartthrob's daughter in the film.

Talking to ET Online, 20-year old Shailene said: "George has taught me how to be a better human being on a lot of different levels, and I think ultimately that's what matters.

"He's obviously an extremely professional and incredible artist, but just from a human perspective he really has taught me to be a more compassionate, human being."

Asked if she was nervous about Sunday's Oscars, Shailene said: "I'm not nervous because I have awesome people who are going to be going through it with me... I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by such lovely human beings who have been through it before, so they've kind of taken me under their wing."

The Descendants has already won two Golden Globe awards, and is hotly tipped for success at the Oscars where it's been nominated for five gongs, including best picture and best actor for George.
