at our nylon cover shoot

From afar, Shailene Woodley is akin to an enigmatic forest nymph—omniscient, whimsical, and, of course, beautiful. And up close, she's not much different. She still has a quiet-yet-powerful presence and an understated charm that's totally captivating. But when you get to know her, you realize that while she seems to be wise beyond her 23 years, she is also just a normal 20-something (as normal as the star of the year's biggest YA adaptation could be, that is).

Behind the scenes of our cover shoot with Woodley, we asked her 16 questions, from her most frequently used word to her craziest dream. Watch and bask in the strange coolness that is Shailene Woodley.
