Unlike Jennifer Lawrence, with whom she has been compared, and other young stars, 23-year-old Shailene has no qualms about appearing nude on screen.
"When somebody's doing a sex scene and they're wearing a bra and underwear that's not how it happens in real life," says Shailene, who displays full nudity in the film White Bird in a Blizzard, which had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.and in which she plays a 17-year-old engaging in on-screen sex and seducing a middle-aged cop played by Thomas Jane.
. "If I'm going to say yes to a movie where this is necessary then I'm going to bring truth to that situation," she says." Nudity's not difficult because when I am changing clothes that happens, so I feel like it's pretty normal."
Shailene is contracted to two more films in the Divergent series---Allegiant, the final book in the trilogy is being split into two films---and is currently filming Snowden for Oliver Stone, playing Edward Snowden's girlfriend Lindsey Mills.
