Shailene Woodley doesn't think we're 'genetically made' to have one partner for life

By Gina DiFalco,

Divergent star Shailene Woodley doesn’t exactly believe there’s one person out there for everyone, saying she’s unsure if humans in general were built to have one partner.

Woodley opened up in the new issue of Marie Claire, also saying she was a late bloomer and explained why she thinks social media is narcissistic.

"I just haven't met anyone where I was like, 'Wow, I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you,'" she told Marie Claire’s April issue. "I don't even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever."

The 22-year-old actress continued to say, “I was the latest bloomer there ever was. I was still playing with Barbies at 14 and didn't have my first kiss until 15½. He had big, beautiful lips, and I was like, 'I don't know what I'm going to do with those.' "

Woodley also said of social media that it’s “too weird for me,” adding, “We're all such narcissists, and that's what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons."

Back in 2011, Woodley got her big break by being cast alongside George Clooney – who she calls “one of my favorite human beings” – in The Descendants. Before that, she starred on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager. In addition to Divergent, Woodley has The Fault in Our Stars coming out.
