When an actress gets her first break-out role there always seems to be an embarrassing little detail from her life that emerges to taint her success. An corny commercial she did as a kid, an old school photo complete with head gear, or in Shailene Woodley’s case, her need to be ready for a nearly barefoot run at any moment.
At least, I assume that’s her reason for wearing the toe-sock-like running shoes (something runners sport when they want to try shoeless sprints but don’t want to cut up their feet) under her dress at a Golden Globes after party. They don’t look particularly comfortable and they definitely don’t complement fancy gowns.
Shailene is known to many as Amy, the teen who lent a slightly darker connotation to this one time at band camp on the show The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She plays George Clooney’s daughter in the Globe winning movie The Descendants and her acting ability in the film has been praised. Now she’ll know she’s truly arrived since cameras are being carefully trained on her feet waiting to out any foot-related secrets she might have.
So any stars who were considering slipping into bunny slippers at the Oscar after-parties, be warned, feet can sometimes peek out under your dress, however long, and as The Telegraph warned Shailene, “we’ll all be watching you.”
