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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
