Shailene Woodley has admitted she doubted her acting skills after she was cut out of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The Divergent star filmed the part of Mary Jane Watson in the superhero movie, but her scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

She told Vanity Fair of hearing she had been cut: "For a few hours it was literally like, 'Oh, my God, was I awful? Why did they cut me? What are people going to think?'."

But the actress, who also appears in the big screen adaptation of John Green's book The Fault In Our Stars, revealed she soon got over her worries.

She explained: "I woke up the next morning and I was like, 'OK, it makes total sense.'

"I'm a pretty spiritual person, so I can just sit back and trust that everything happens for a reason, even if my ego doesn't like it."

Director Marc Webb previously revealed that Shailene's role was only chopped out because it didn't work for the film, and he heaped praise on her acting talent.
