‘I don’t trust anyone. Dating’s hard,’ she said. ‘I mean, I love sex. I love the power of emotional connection via physicality. Who doesn’t? But now I’m only interested in those unexpected impactful connections.’

‘It’s easy to talk about the positive things about love, but love is scary,’ she added. Shailene also revealed she’s comfortable letting friends and relationships come and go.

‘…A meaningful, profound connection doesn’t need to sustain itself forever,’ she said, adding, ‘Just because you may not be in contact with someone doesn’t mean that impact has any less importance.’

‘If I’m going to tell stories outside my wheelhouse, I need to at least have personally observed these experiences to understand them. Not all actors are like that because they are classically trained. I’m not.’

‘A few months ago I was the least confident in my self-worth,’ she revealed. ‘I don’t beat myself up over it anymore, but I still feel like I don’t fully trust myself to say no to certain things, to trust my discernment. But I will be, very soon.’
