Her alternative lifestyle is endlessly interesting, and Shailene Woodley stopped by “The Late Show with David Letterman” to discuss her unusual practice of eating clay.

While the “Divergent” dame was actually in the house to promote her new movie “The Fault in Our Stars,” Letterman couldn’t resist asking a few questions regarding her unique approach to health.

David fired off, “Do you eat clay?” to which Shailene happily replied, “I do eat clay, yeah. Do you?” Letterman answered, “No.”

When asked why she began the routine, Woodley explained, "Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials – that are not necessarily the best for you.”

Always ready with a witty retort, David asked, “Have you heard of Metamucil?”
