Shailene Woodley has ‘indigenous lifestyle’
Shailene Woodley sees that humans adapt to their environment and tries to live a basic and healthy lifestyle based on that.
The 21-year-old admitted to getting back to basics in order to have a long and fruitful life.
The actress discussed the idea heavily with pals before deciding to treat her body like a temple.
“I just started adapting my lifestyle to that of indigenous people, and what I realised is that we’re all indigenous creatures on this planet,” she told fellow thespian Emma Stone for Interview magazine. “The whole concept of re-wilding came about through some really good friends of mine, and it’s basically about adapting to your current situation.
“If you’re in the city, then you can’t go back to hunter-and-gatherer times, so you have to adapt to the lifestyle that’s out there.”
Shailene filmed scenes for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 in New York City, although her recording for the part of Mary Jane Watson was later cut.
She regularly travels for her work on screen but is getting the hang of it.
“Sometimes it’s a struggle,” she admitted. “But as I was saying, it’s all about balance. Right now I’m filming in Chicago, and I’m in an apartment building 35 stories up in the air, and I’ve never lived in a city where I have to be careful about walking around my house naked because the business office next door will be able to see me at 7 am.
“But I still have my crock pot of chaga mushroom tea brewing all the time …”
Shailene recently attended Sundance Film Festival this year to promote her film The Spectacular Now.
The star found it fun to regroup with her co-workers on the flick.
“It was cool to reunite with the cast and the director because everyone got so close while we were filming and we’re so proud of the movie,” she confessed. “Presenting it to the film world was also exciting.”
