    She should have easily earned an Oscar nomination for her work in ‘Adrift’ for Best Actress.

    Funny you should create this thread, as I was just thinking about Shailene Woodley after recently watching “Big Little Lies”. As a huge entertainment junky, I love tracking the rise of young stars, and at one point I surely thought Shailene Woodley was on her way.

    There was a point and time where I truly thought SW was going to be one of the biggest young starlets in Hollywood, headlining blockbusters and doing the occasional awards bait indie. After making the jump from TV (The Secret Life of the American Teenager), and the launch of “Divergent” and success of “The Fault In Our Stars”, mega-stardom was on its way. Or I thought she was going to have a career and profile similar to that of contemporaries like Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone.

    I do not exactly know quite where/when, but her career has seemingly stalled out to varying degrees. My understanding is she has no desire to be a Hollywood “starlet” and lives an extremely private life, as much off the grid as a celebrity possibly can.

    The above may play a factor, but there has to be more than just that. Heck, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts have proven you can be a world wide star and still retain a private life. I do wonder how much the collapse of the “Divergent” franchise had to do with her career trajectory.

    Despite everything, the talent and ability is very much still there. She was rather excellent in “Big Little Lies”. I hope BLL can help re-ignite her career and lead to some other awards worthy material.

    She could’ve easily snucked in for BSA on her work in The Descendants. She was amazing there.

    ^Very True. I honestly sometimes forget she was in that (shame on me). That film is yet another example of the inherent talent and ability that lies within her. Hopefully things will continue to look up and she can find some truly great projects after BLL season 2.
