This certainly would be a divergent career move.
Actress and activist Shailene Woodley might not stay in Hollywood forever, as the “Big Little Lies” star might have her sights on a move to Washington.
“There was a point last year when I was working for Bernie Sanders where I thought, ‘Huh, maybe I’ll run for Congress in a couple years.’ And you know what? I’m not going to rule it out,” she told the New York Times. “Who knows? Life is big, and I’m young.”
In March 2017, Woodley, 25, avoided jail time for her involvement in protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota. Woodley was one of 27 protesters arrested in October 2016, but she cut a plea deal that allowed her to avoid lock up. Instead, she was ordered to serve one year of unsupervised probation and forfeit $500 bond.
The “Divergent” actress also became a vocal critic of Hillary Clinton during the presidential election.
“If you tell someone, ‘You have to vote for this person to prevent A, B, C, and D,’ I don’t think there’s going to be much momentum,” Woodley told the Young Turks.
If people don’t vote for her, well, that’s just the fault in their stars.
