Shailene Woodley Bio

Shailene Woodley began her acting career at the ripe old age of five when she was discovered by an agent. She went on to land recurring roles in some serious must-see TV. Do Crossing Jordan and My Name Is Earl ring any bells? But OC super-fans will remember her best as Marissa's sassy little sis Kaitlin on the hit show's first season. Shailene Woodley's breakout role was in Felicity: An American Girl Adventure, where she played the real life version of your favorite American Girl Doll (admit it, you've still got them stashed away in your attic). She's also filmed numerous commercials and stars in the upcoming movie Moola.

But Shailene Woodley's career skyrocketed when she booked the role of Amy on Secret Life, playing a pregnant teen who juggles the most dramatic love triangles we've seen since The OC! More recently, she's nabbed the role middle-aged women dream about — starring alongside the criminally handsome George Clooney in 2011's The Descendants. Shai and George filmed on location in Hawaii for three months, though how she got anything done with him wandering shirtless on the beach is a mystery to us all...

For her performance in The Descendants, Shailene received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and she's only moved on to bigger and better things... like playing the lead role in both Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars
