Shailene Woodley

The Spectacular Now

2 Aug, 2013

Woodley stars as Aimee Finecky in the James Ponsoldt romantic comedy-drama adapted from Tim Tharp’s novel. Aimee develops feelings for a charismatic but troubled schoolmate and risks placing her own future in jeopardy. Co-starring Miles Teller.

In the book, Aimee is a nerd, a geek, mousy, in a corner with her head down. That was one of the biggest things [I discussed] when I sat down with James [Ponsoldt]. I really wanted to do this movie but said, “If you want this girl to be written the way she is now, I’m not the choice. Because I don’t see her as a nerd. I see her as a really strong, independent, beautiful young woman who is wise beyond her years.” That’s not to mean that she is not naive or innocent. Luckily, James completely agreed with me.
