Shailene Woodley Insults The Twilight Relationship, And For Once I’m Not Talking About Robsten

Shailene Woodley attending Independent Spirit Awards March 2014I think it’s time to start a slow clap for Shailene Woodley, because she’s showing a seriously large pair of brass balls by criticizing the relationship in TwilightThat’s an intense fan base to tangle with, and we wish her the best of luck.

Oh and I guess I should clarify — she didn’t insult Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson specifically. (That’s the stuff of my dreams, that a celebrity would speak publicly about Crushable’s pet conspiracy theory that Robsten was a fakelationship and that their breakup was one of the most brilliant PR stunts of all time.) Instead, she disrespected the sacred union between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, an injustice which I suspect shan’t soon be forgotten by Twihards.

Speaking to Teen Vogue, Shailene said:

“Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself!”

OKAY NO. P’scuse me Shailene, but that is not accurate. It’s actually not over because she finds another man to fulfill her! Jacob! And this one is warm and treats her nicely so she must DISCARD HIM when her real man comes back! The love of her life one! The one who requires that she reject everything she holds dear including her family and her friends and become a bloodthirsty murderer who lives forever! Don’t you know anything??

“What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”

A fairytale one, Shailene! What’s so hard to understand?? Either you’re on board with Bella and Edward and Kristen and Rob, or you hate true love and you want to squash it under your shoe wherever you find it.

    I understand twilight obsessions and all but I like that Shailene points out how unhealthy it is! Bella does become severely depressed, crazy and borderline suicide after she loses Edward. It isn’t healthy! Bella had potential to be badazz but that didn’t happen. Girls should know they are empowered with or without a guy! Go Shailene!

      Agreed!

    The worst part about Twilight is the entire time I was reading I thought – this is the most horribly dysfunctional, anti-feminist relationship I have read about in such a long time. BUT WHY CAN’T I STOP READING?

    • Carmen

      Yes because it is a fun book to read about vampires. It is fantasy and everybody likes make believe. We shouldn’t take all this so seriously

    Very mean comments from Shailene should not bad mouth her fellow actors. What happens to actors who think they’re better than others.? Eventually the public doesn’t want to see their movies and they don’t get TO MAKE THE GOOd movies. Remember the two pretty blondes we don’t see anymore. One from Grey’s anatomy and the other from Three’s Company. I have never heard any unkind words from Robert and Kristen about their fellow actors. She needs to thank God she has a job and get off her high horse.

      She DID NOT insult Robert and Kristen.

    • MellyG

      yea, she insulted a fictional relationship – not actual actors.

    She is absolutely precious. It’s adorable how she’s trying to make herself into the next J-Law by trying to prove how unlike J-Law she is.
