Given her string of successful films, Shailene Woodley is getting tons of attention as of late, and she looks magnificent in her photo spread for V Magazine.

The 22-year-old actress told the publication that although she’s no longer a newbie, she still gets excited about the experiences her fame affords her.

“I find Sundance to be nothing but pure magic every year. I’ve been going for a while, whether I’m with a film or not. The weather, the people, the dance moves, the films, the cozy attire…it’s swoon-worthy.”

The “Divergent” starlet continued, “I love indie films, because there’s no slacking off. The budget is so tight and the shooting schedule is so precise, there’s no room for error. Everyone is there for the love of the craft. [Indie films] are able to explore beyond the boundaries of what studios will allow. They take risks and diverge from mediocrity—by being sexual, mysterious, dangerous, or crude. I love them because the freedom is unbridled.”

As for her new flick “The Fault in Our Stars,” due in theaters June 6th, Woodley noted, “It’s a beautiful cancer movie that isn’t about cancer. It’s about internal exploration, eternal connection, and universal, unconditional love.”
