    Is this list is based on personal preferences? I don’t feel like it has to do with actual chances.

    Like Woodley is easily in Top 10. Marion Cotillard? Lol.

    Any of the ladies mentioned above have more chances than Shailene Woodley. I’m not saying Woodley has no shot at all (you know that in my opinion she doesn’t but I’m not even going that way) but looking at that list you can say she’s a solid #11. #12 if you’re counting Jennifer Aniston. Sorry boo.
