Shailene Woodley is starring in the upcoming Lionsgate film, Divergent, but is speaking out about another very popular teenage book franchise that turned into the movie series, Twilight.
Woodley recently spoke to Teen Vogue about the Twilight films and novels explaining her thoughts about the Bella and Edward relationship.
“‘Twilight,’ I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve," said Woodley.
The young actress is about to receive a huge career boost when her teenage novel, which turned into the feature film Divergent, hits the big screen on March 21 nationwide, Variety added.
Woodley is not the first celebrity to speak out against Twilight; author Stephen King called the young novels, "tweenage porn" and Vampire Chronicles author, Anne Rice, expressed her dislike for the novels by saying her creations would “feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun.”
