Ugh. No. Absolutely not.
Shailene Woodley attends Summit Entertainment and All It Takes private Screening of “Divergent” at Muvico Theaters Thousand Oaks in Thousand Oaks, California.
We were going to call her a string of names, as we tend to do when someone in the celebrity sphere acts like their public appearances should occur on the way to the drugstore to pick up some items, but we’ll dial it back a little because this screening was arranged by her for her charity.
But this is really bad and there’s absolutely no excusing it. This would look trashy on any girl walking down the street, so why should we think it’s okay for a public event where your picture will be taken, money/awareness will be raised for charity and your hundred-million-dollar movie will be screened? People don’t like when we say this, but it’s disrespectful to show up at an event like this, even a casual event. This is a look for doing beer bongs with her sorority sisters; not for a time and place where you’re trying to make some sort of impression on people.
Put it this way: If she worked in a convenience store ringing up smokes and lottery tickets, she could be sent home or fired for showing up to work like this. So why would we think it’s okay for her to dress this way for an event? Sorry. We don’t see this as a cheeky thumbing of the nose at the Hollywood image machine (which is almost certainly how it will be defended). She just looks trashy.
She doesn’t have to wear a skirt, or heels, or a bra or makeup if she doesn’t want to, but she DOES have to make some effort to look presentable for the public. It’s part of her job. Tonight, at this event, it’s the ENTIRETY of her job.
