As you can tell from the White Bird in a Blizzard trailer, Shailene Woodley is playing a character unlike we’ve ever seen her tackle before.
We caught up with the emerging superstar for an exclusive video interview, along with her writer-director Gregg Araki, where she talked about what it was about this wildly original film that made her tackle the role while still making blockbusters like the Divergent series and smash hits such as The Fault in Our Stars.
“It’s a movie that doesn’t get made every day,” Woodley said. “It’s not a coming of age film. I don’t want to call it that. But you do watch this girl evolve. You watch her mistakes and blunders and her triumphs.”
Woodley also sheds light on what it is that makes her choices for films so fantastic, as she currently films Insurgent in Atlanta.
“I want to make movies that I want to watch,” Woodley said. “So, when I read this script, I knew this was a movie I want to see.”
