Well, we can’t say we’re surprised — but we’re definitely intrigued. Actress and activist Shailene Woodley said she might run for office, and we think she’d be an ideal candidate.
Woodley opened up about the possible career change in an interview with The New York Times.
The actress said that she considered running for Congress after being inspired by the Bernie Sanders campaign last year.
We love her attitude about it. And she’s right — it’s definitely something she shouldn’t rule out.
When she’s not on set, Woodley has been pretty busy with environmental activism. You might remember that she was very briefly arrested after joining in on the Standing Rock protests. This June, she promoted the Winnemem Wintu Tribe’s attempt to bring their salmon home.
Woodley’s interview also shared her thoughts and feelings on relationships between women, and why we all need to work together to create a more more stable world.
We think that Shailene Woodley could help make the world a better place, and we’ll always support her — whether it’s through a campaign, or just by seeing her amazing movies and shows.
