Shailene Woodley: I want to waitress

Shailene Woodley believes travelling will help her bring "colour" to her movie roles.

The 22-year-old actress' latest role is as Beatrice Prior opposite Theo James in action movie Divergent. With a sequel to the movie in the pipeline, Shailene is planning to take a break from the limelight before she starts filming again.

"I want to do something different. I would love to be a waitress. Yes! It would be so much fun," she laughed to British magazine Time Out London.

"Right now a lot of people my age are finishing college and going out into the world for the first time. I'm going to travel a bit. I've just got rid of everything I owned. I'm living out of a carry-on suitcase. I need more life experience to bring colour to roles."

For her upcoming movie White Bird, Shailene bares all in a daring nude scene. While she has explained the nudity helped make the feature feel more "real", she insists she won't strip off again.

"I've made mistakes. I've done shoots were I felt uncomfortable. I'll never do that again. I keep my clothes on," she confessed.

Shailene is known for her natural beauty. The brunette star explained how she and her fellow actress pal Brie Larson are currently going bare-faced.

"We were talking about the things that we're insecure about with our bodies. We realised we were comparing ourselves to the images in magazines. And we were like: 'We're such hypocrites, because we are in those magazines,'" she mused.

Shailene recently spoke about how she could happily lead a simple life if she wasn't in the film industry. She enjoys keeping her body in top condition.

“I am interested in herbalism and indigenous cultures and am just very passionate about the earth,” Shailene said.

“I could live in the wilderness. At the moment I’m passionate about food and the process of growing it, eating it and seeing how your body reacts. I don’t think I’ve eaten McDonalds since I was nine.”
