Shailene Woodley might not call herself a feminist, but these 14 celebrities don’t share her problem. The Fault in Our Stars actress made headlines when she responded to a question about whether she considered herself a feminist by saying, “No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.”
While on her Fault press tour, Woodley recently clarified her response, saying it was “not actually the way I said it,” but that “The word ‘feminist’ is a word that discriminates, and I’m not into that.” She went on to say, “Labels are for other people to understand us, so for me, I know how I feel and I don’t need to call myself a ‘feminist’ or ‘not a feminist’ because I know what my truth is. If you need in your own mind to say that I’m a feminist so you better understand where I’m coming from and what my ideals mean, then that’s for you. Labels are for people to understand one another, not for us to understand ourselves.”
Woodley has always been very outspoken with her opinions. Earlier this year, she caused uproar when she categorised the Twilight love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen as “a very unhealthy, toxic relationship.”
The Fault in Our Stars is in cinemas from June 6. Woodley stars in the highly anticipated adaptation alongside Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, Willem Dafoe, Laura Dern and Sam Trammell. The film is based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name by John Green.
