Shailene Woodley Says She Let Go of Her Career…Why??
She spoke about the “very scary physical situation” she suffered in her early 20s while making ‘The Divergent’films.
In an interview with ‘The New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan, Woodley said she was “Very, very sick” and forced to “let go” of her career.
Here Is What She Said About “Let Go” of Her Career
“I haven’t spoken much about this publicly, and I will one day, but I was very, very sick in my early 20s. While I was doing the ‘Divergent’ movies and working hard, I also was struggling with a deeply personal, very scary physical situation.” She said.
“Because of that, I said no to a lot of opportunities because I needed to get better, and those jobs ended up going to peers of mine who I love. They went on a lot of success, but there was a mix of people saying, ‘you shouldn’t have let that go’ or ‘you shouldn’t have been sick'”.
She said that letting go of projects while taking care of herself ” combined with my own internal process of, ‘Am I going to survive what I’m going through right now and ever be healthy, or even have the opportunity to work on projects I’m passionate about again because of the situation I’m in?'”
She also said she was in a place where she had no choice but to just surrender and let go of her career and it brought out this negative voice in her mind that kept spinning for years and years afterwards.
Woodley said that she’s in a better place, ” Now I’m on the other side of it, thank God.”
There are many upcoming films of her in the future. Prisoner 760, Last Letter From Your Lover were two of them.
We wish very good luck for her future, though she is on a bright side, let’s wish it should be improved more after her new projects.
