Shailene Woodley — the actress who broke your heart into a thousand pieces in The Fault in Our Stars and now stars in the epic Divergent series — is known for many things, but a social media presence is not one of them. Until yesterday.

That’s right. The actress who swore off all technology (she once told Access Hollywood she only had a phone because her bosses at Lionsgate needed to reach her to film Divergent) has joined Instagram again and we are basically in shock.

Her first Instagram seems to be a hand-written note on a paper bag that says, “Instagram Whats [sic] good?!” In the caption, Shailene wrote, “and here begins my Instagram. i’m going to need help. there are so many buttons and settings and options. HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER!!! 👯👯👯” 

Don’t worry, Shailene! We are here to help you!

Her second Instagram? A Bernie comic, because girl FEELS THE BERN. No, really, she’s a huge supporter, and was very present at a Bernie rally on April 24th in Providence, Rhode Island.

According to InStyle, Shailene used to have an Instagram account, but this was one of the many material possessions she shed in order to attain a more minimalistic lifestyle.“I’ve come to realize it’s really none of our business what other people think about us,” she told InStyle in their March issue“And the more time and energy we spend obsessing about that, the more we’re trying to be a certain way for other people instead of for ourselves.”

“Three years ago I got rid of everything. What I found was, the less I had, the less I craved or needed,” the actress added.

We’re not sure why Shailene has made her way back into social media — perhaps to advocate Bernie Sanders for President? Give us tips on meditation? We’ll just have to wait and see.
