“Despite the appearance of overnight success, Woodley worked for 17 years to reach this moment.”[THR]
Many Hollywood insiders are moving their money around – from the omnipresent and ever-tripping Jennifer Lawrence over to Divergent star Shailene Woodley, who (if insiders are to be believed) is the Next Big Thing.
If you don’t know her already (kinda unlikely if you visit this site regularly) then you should know that she’s being pitched as a hybrid Jennifer Lawrence-Kristin Stewart (i.e. someone who can kick ass and be stereotypically feminine on cue). Read the article for the full story.
Which, ultimately, begs the question: does Woodley’s headlining of a major studio YA movie Divergent make her the New Jennifer Lawrence? And does that relegate the oversaturated/overhyped/now-constantly-second-guessed Jennifer Lawrence to being the New Anne Hathaway (i.e. people are starting to love to hate her)??
Weigh in and let us know if this comparison is apt. Or total bubkus.View All Photos ›
