Latest News • Shailene Woodley Thinks We Should All Listen to This Throwback Song


It’s no secret that Big Little Lies actress Shailene Woodley is concerned about what’s going on in our world right now. She has been a vocal supporter of the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and she frequently speaks out at rallies and events.

She also uses her prominent platform to speak out on social media, and now, she’s suggesting a little musical education for her fans.

“‘where is the love’ just came on the radio,” Shailene tweeted today, referring to the popular 2003 Black Eyed Peas song, “it’s time we listen to this on repeat. and then answer their question, and be the love.”

It’s definitely a powerful song, with lyrics like: “People killin’, people dyin’/
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’/Can you practice what you preach?/Or would you turn the other cheek?”

Her followers are loving the throwback, agreeing that it’s an amazing song — with an even better message.

According to THR, Miles Teller is in negotiations to co-star in this survival drama, with the already-cast Shailene Woodley, who boarded the project back in February.

While the would-be duo spent most of the Divergent films as mortal enemies, with Teller playing the bully character Peter opposite Woodley’s protagonist Tris, Adrift could see them playing an engaged couple.

Adrift is based on a true story, and its central couple will see a sailing trip on the way to Tahiti interrupted by a massive storm, leaving Woodley’s character stranded at sea sans communication and forced to endure a 1,500-mile voyage to both find her missing man and secure safety. The film will interweave her perilous journey with romantic flashbacks of their courtship.

For Miles Teller, star of the 2014 smash Whiplash and the maligned 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four, Adrift would represent the fifth time he’s shared the screen with Woodley, starting with 2013 drama The Spectacular Now and, of course, the existing trio of Divergent films. Teller will next appear in a duo of fall films in director Joseph Kosinski’s drama Granite Mountain and Jason Hall’s post-military life drama Thank You For Your Service.

For Woodley, also known from films like The Fault In Our Stars, The Descendants and Snowden, Adrift could see her digging deep. She’s currently seen on HBO (and Sky Atlantic on this side of the pond), in the series Big Little Lies.

In the director’s chair for Adrift is Baltasar Kormákur, known from films such as 2015’s Everest, 2013’s Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington-starring graphic novel adaptation 2 Guns and another Wahlberg starrer in 2012’s Contraband. Kormákur works off a script based on the real-life ordeal of Tami Oldham (Woodley’s presumed character), by the duo of Aaron and Jordan Kandell, who wrote last year’s animated Disney hit Moana.

Adrift has yet to set any significant dates towards which to navigate.

The young eco warrior is urging her peers to rise up and “create dialogue” around climate change before it’s too late, and she believes her new film, Allegiant, will rally the activists once and for all.

“We need to open dialogues about climate change and encourage people to recognise that it’s so real,” Shailene told WENN. “The first time I saw The Fringe (a poor, run-down area pivotal to the new film), I thought, ‘This is exactly what’s going to happen to our world if we don’t stop it from heating up!’

“It’s not gonna change until we demand the change… There’s so many things that should just be already and aren’t, so for whatever reason I’ve been given this platform I might as well talk about it.”

And Shailene insists young activists don’t need to be part of a group to start the change for a better planet.

“Although there are lots of organisations I’m involved with, the conversation literally starts amongst a group of us going, ‘What are we gonna do about this?’ It’s so easy to think, ‘Oh Shay’s out there with her organisation doing it’. But we all have to do it.”

Shailene returns as Tris in the new Divergent film, and admits she’s beginning to have serious doubts about her freedom-fighter character, adding, “Funny thing she never eats. You never see her eating or drinking water; very rarely. I think that she’s chronically dehydrated!”

She also had great fun working with co-stars Theo James and Jeff Daniels.

Calling the actor “the funniest motherf**ker I’ve ever met,” she insists James is “a really intelligent, grounded, witty and real human being who is so rooted in his authenticity he couldn’t not be himself if he tried”.

As for Daniels, the actress spent downtime on the set asking him about his roles onstage in plays like God of Carnage – Shailene’s favourite theatre piece.

The chats may have inspired her to hit the stage, as she explained, “I picked his brain about what that was like to be in the theatre. I want to learn what it’s like to do theatre and go from that to a film set and then back to theatre.”
