Young-adult film Divergent hit No. 1 at the box office in its opening weekend, giving its star Shailene Woodley a taste of what it’s like to be one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. However, sources tell Star, that fame got to the actress’ head well before that.
When Shailene was just 15, before her career took off on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, her parents got divorced. “The divorce was tough for Shailene and her brother, and that’s about the time she took on more of a negative, entitled attitude,” an insider reveals.
The now 22-year-old’s diva-like behavior was on display at the Divergent premiere on March 18. “She was walked to her area by her handlers and stayed there all night,” an eye witness says. “She didn’t mingle with fans, and bouncers even stopped them from trying to take pictures. The bodyguards were acting like a blockade!”
