Shailene Woodley Explains Why She's Not A Feminist
The 'Fault In Our Stars' actress doesn't like the f-word...
It’s official, Shailene Woodley is not a feminist.
In an interview with Time magazine this week, the Divergent actress discussed exactly why she’s not a fan of the f-word: “because I love men, and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance.
“With myself, I'm very in touch with my masculine side. And I'm 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are.”
Adding, “And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn't work either. We have to have a fine balance."
Explaining why jealousy and respect play a big role in it all: "I don't know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don't even seem to respect each other," the 23-year-old explained.
"There's so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy, and, 'This girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.' And it's just so silly and heartbreaking in a way."
The talented young star went on to gush about how she loved the ideology of Cameron Diaz’s latest film The Other Woman: “they create a sisterhood. And he did something wrong, and they’re, you know. They’re going to go after him for it. I think it’s great.”
