Shailene Woodley Isn’t Bothered by Divergent’s Coed Bathroom

She may be the lead of Hollywood’s newest blockbuster franchise, but Divergent star Shailene Woodley remains famously earthy, a fact that her co-stars will happily attest to. “She’s very into knowing where your food is coming from, and now when I eat a non-organic egg from like a factory farm, I cringe, because it just doesn’t taste the same to me anymore,” Ansel Elgort told us at last night’s screening of Divergent, hosted by Cinema Society and Marie Claire. He laughed, “Now my groceries are more expensive. She’s cost me money, basically.”

But are there limits to Woodley’s free-spirited nature? Is she progressive enough, for example, to embrace the coed bathroom (no stalls, no doors) that her Divergent character must use as part of the out-in-the-open Dauntless faction? “I’m sure if I was forced to, I would,” Woodley told us. “I’m not a very modest person, so it wouldn’t bother me as much.” Still, she’d be likely to draw the line someplace: “I’d probably be like, ‘I’m not going to go use this toilet. I’m going to go in the woods somewhere.’ You can find a leaf to use, or drip dry.”
