Shailene Woodley: “I Don’t Even Have a Cellphone!”
While many of her contemporaries snap selfies and constantly post on social media, Shailene Woodley would rather draw a line between her personal and professional realms.
While chatting with The Daily Beast, the “Divergent” dame confessed that she has opted not to carry a mobile phone.
Shailene explained, "The thing with privacy is I’m just going to make sure that whatever I hold sacred stays sacred. What I hold dear to my heart is nobody’s business in the same way whatever you hold dear to your heart is nobody’s business, unless you’re willing to share that.”
Ms. Woodley also noted, “As far as the hacking stuff goes, I don’t really have to worry about that. I’m not a big technology person. I don’t even have a smartphone. I don’t even have a cellphone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone.”
“There’s a bigger lack of privacy than there’s ever been, but there’s also a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there’s ever been. I mean … just asking people for directions. Since I got rid of my phone, having to pull over and be like, ‘Hey, buddy—do you know how to get here?’ I’m talking to people more than I’ve ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have.”
