Shailene Woodley Feels Great About Her Sex Scenes

10 Reasons Why We’re Falling for Shailene Woodley
Filming a Hollywood sex scene is awkward. But Shailene Woodley thought her sex scene in her latest film, “White Bird in a Blizzard“, was pretty great…even her parents thought so!

About losing her on-screen virginity, she said candidly, “[It’s] crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it,” she said. “I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I’m only 22. My boobs are great. They don’t need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it.”

Shailene’s body positive attitude is awesome. And what’s even crazier is that Woodley filmed said scene while looking straight into the camera.

In the drama thriller, Woodley stars as 17-year-old Kat Connors, experiencing a sexual awakening all the more intensified by the disappearance of her mother, played by Eva Green. Woodley said further, “When I signed on to do the film, I knew that that was part of this character and part of her world,” she said. “I think it’s so refreshing to see a coming-of-age film that actually deals with sex and that has sexuality be a large theme.”

She’s also a positive role-model for women. “Women should be there for other women,” she said. “It’s such cruelty and competition out there. Women must help other women. Not say those ugly things about the others just out of their insecurity. I don’t believe in that.”

Shailene Woodley, can we be best friends?

“White Bird in a Blizzard” is a coming-of-age drama directed by Gregg Araki. It premiered at Sundance in January, is now on demand and available on iTunes, and will be out in theaters on October 24th.
