Shailene Woodley is the newest gift that Hollywood’s given to us recently. And unlike most celebrity gifts who comes wrapped in PR-statements and stuffed with generic beauty tips, she’s comes covered in quirk and an extra set of toe shoes. Every time she opens her mouth, I want to hug her and hold her and keep her all for myself. Like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and Anna Kendrick, there’s something so incredibly real about her. No one’s shape-shifting this young lady into a standard celebrity. No way, no how.
Shai recently went on The View to talk to the ladies about The Spectacular Now, which happens to be coming out next weekend. While I’m preparing to talk about the movie in depth next week (so much depth guys, I’m warning you in advance to grab your scuba gear), I will say now that you should see it. It’s a delight of a film and I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed watching teenagers make out with each other so much — in real life or in a movie or in a movie theater.
As you may or may not have heard in past interviews, Shailene has an interesting morning routine. It kicks off with some herbal remedies and ends with some morning music. Yep, she starts each and every day with a song that gets her pumped up and ready. And after watching her perform the song, I’m kinda pumped up myself. It’s not a shot of espresso, but it’s close to giving you that “oh helloooo there world” jolt that we all need in the AM.
It’s short, it’s simple and it’s surprisingly fun to watch her sing it. So click play, skip to 4:15 if you’re in a rush and prepare to fall in love.
