Quote of the Day: Shailene Woodley on Jennifer Lawrence Comparisons




Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Rivalries, Features

Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence

"As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-­workers, to the images in a magazine... How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress."

- Divergent star Shailene Woodley explains why she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that "Comparisons always lead to despair" when the SNL alum asked her how she feels being compared to Jennifer Lawrence (to which the audience booed at her response).
