Woodley’s eccentric family

Shailene Woodley is a hippie to the core, said Natalie Evans-Harding
in Net-a-Porter.com’s The Edit. The young actress likes to gather her
own springwater from the mountains every month, eats ants and
other insects, and makes her own medicines. She inherited her
outlook from her mom and dad, who had a highly unconventional
approach to parenting. “My family is super f---ed up in many ways,
but they are my everything,” says the Divergent star. Her dad, a
psychologist, and her mom, a counselor, had a revolving-door policy
at home for their clients. So, teenage runaways or families fleeing
domestic violence would regularly stay over at the Woodleys’
house, or even go on vacation with them. “I came home to things
that weren’t great,” Woodley says. She often found her folks’ parenting
style infuriating. When she fought with her brother, they
were made to hug it out for hours on the front lawn in front of
their neighbors. “The whole time you’re just seething, but if you
let go you have to stay there for an extra hour. That was the kind
of reverse, manipulative psychology my parents were into!” Today,
she’s grateful for her parents’ insistence that she always think of
how other people feel first. But at the time? “Oh, I hated it.”
