SHAILENE WOODLEY REVEALS WHY SHE TURNED DOWN ‘FIFTY SHADES OF GREY’: Divergent star Shailene Woodley revealed in a recent interview with The Daily Beast that she turned down an offer to audition for the lead female role in Fifty Shades of Grey. She explained to the website, “I didn’t want to audition for it. It’s because I had already done Divergent and I knew there was no way I wanted to do multiple franchises at the same time, because that’s crazy, so I didn’t see the point in it.” She recently revealed that Jennifer Lawrence had to convince her to even sign on for Divergent in an email which read, ‘Small things will change, but if you stay who you are, nothing will change. The big picture won’t change. It’s only going to make your life greater and you’ll be so grateful for it. Don’t be stupid, don’t make a sex tape, don’t do drugs, don’t go to Whole Foods the day the movie opens, and you’ll be fine!”
