Shailene Woodley Is Basically Just Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman
Actress Shailene Woodley lives what many would call an alternate lifestyle. She brews her own tea, makes her own medicine and even concocts her own toothpaste, all in the name of
science staying natural.
“I think everything about my lifestyle is fairly alternative. I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils. I could go on for hours,” she explained to Us Weekly of her hippie tendencies.
“I make my own medicines; I don’t get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It’s an entire lifestyle. It’s appealing to my soul.”
She also walks to school, uphill both ways with no feet, so there’s that. Okay, we may have made that one up.
To follow Woodley’s hunting, gathering and foraging in real time, you can check out her Twitter. See vegans, you can take things a step further.

Woodley is currently in the process of filming the adaptation of the young adult novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ as cancer patient Hazel Grace, a role for which she chopped off her long locks.
And apparently despite the big role she landed, she’s been spending her time on set being her, even brewing tea for the book’s author, John Green.

Although, to be fair, Laura Dern is making him sandwiches so maybe it’s a John Green thing more than a Shailene Woodley thing.
Update from the TFiOS movie: I just ate a sandwich made by Laura Dern. It was genuinely excellent.
