Shailene Woodley Claims Secret Life Isn’t “Realistic”
We’re still recovering from the devastating news that The Secret Life of the American Teenager is about to start its final season. We’ve spent five seasons and several pregnancies with our favorite characters, and now our time is almost at an end.
But it’s definitely not the end for the Secret Life actors. Star Shailene Woodley continues to push boundaries after starring in the Oscar-nominated film The Descendants last year.
And now Shailene’s busy promoting her indie flick Spectacular Now at the Sundance Film Festival. Shailene’s very excited for her latest project, but we have to respectfully disagree with her recent comments about our favorite show.
When asked by IndieWire how Secret Life and Spectacular Now compare, Shailene responded, “Secret Life wasn’t realistic at all. I think the themes at the core had a lot of truth to them, but the way in which they were presented was not realistic or truthful. Like I said, Spectacular Now was a really human piece. We got to explore and really get inside these kids’ minds. I love that they weren’t dumbed down. Teenagers are extremely smart.”
Whoa! Do you agree with her or does Secret Life accurately depict the average high school experience? Tell us below!
