in an interview The New York Times. “When I was rolling
and working hard, also what was going wrong with an all-natural, deeply personal and terrifying. That’s why I said no to many opportunities because I needed to meet better.

The actress, 28 years, explains that during his teens he always saw the interpretation as a hobby, and that was never raised, which was a profession because I didn’t want to lose the illusion: “As a twenty-something, there was a period long of time in which the anxiety, fear and competitiveness were definitely on my mind and my ego in a way that is not what they were when I was a girl”. Woodley had already explained that, when she was 15 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis and had to wear for two years a “hateful” corset. According to her, I would not have hated both the treatment if this had not coincided with the divorce of their parents. Also that it had been a good student, but his parents were concerned because they believed that I had some problems to interact and asked him to come out more often.

“At the end of my adolescence, I had a strong idea of my identity and the meaning of life, but after I went through a abusive relationship. That, combined with, to be honest, the commercial success that I had in this industry, it began to damage my strength,” says Woodley, journalist Kyle Buchanan. “As a twentysomething, I felt as if I was in a washing machine and give me everywhere.”

Woodley explains that he sought solutions to their problems, but in the end decided to surrender and let his career slip from the hands during a time. Lost great opportunities, but the singer says that it takes years to focusing on their mental health has already surpassed the one downer: “I feel very grateful to have crossed that line of fire because I now know that I don’t want to go back to it ever again.”
