Shailene Woodley Is a Beautiful Street Urchin in Love on Her Elle Cover


Who knows if wood nymph Shailene Woodley has evolved from eating mud and sunning her vagina, but she’s definitely still a nomad. Woodley is profiled in the April issue of Elle magazine, and her homeless status is right there on the cover: “Beauty! Brains! Talent! Shailene has it all. Except for a place to sleep tonight…” Ominous…

One other thing Shailene also does not have, at least for this cover: a good stylist. She looks like an extra from the Star Wars with Natalie Portman, and god Naboo is barren this time of year.

The excerpt of the accompanying article is limited, but Elle‘s teased this much in a tweet about the cover: “ELLE’s April cover girl is Shailene Woodley…and she’s in LOVE.”

As you’d expect from a heart-to-heart hugger, “I’m all-loving,” she says. “I fall in love with people based on who they are. “I never want to love like this”—Woodley holds her arms outstretched, as if to envelop you—”I always want to love like this.” She thrusts her arms behind her back, pressing her chest forward. “Heart centered, like, ‘This is who I am! And I love you if you love me for who this person is. And if not, I’ll still love you, but I ain’t fallin’ in love with you!'” Happily she carries on with what could seriously be the best personal ad ever—feel free to steal it: “When you’re truly in love, for me, it’s…you’re my lighthouse! You’re somebody who holds me high, keeps me safe, you’ve got my fuckin’ back…. You also love me whole, wild, and free. You let me do me, and I’m gonna let you do you! And I’ll be the home that you return to.” Is she currently in love? Woodley smiles…

Feel free to steal it from her.
