Shailene Woodley would like to have a similar attitude as her co-stars and mentors George Clooney and Kate Winslet.

Woodley, who starred alongside George Clooney in The Descendant's, told HitFix, of her Divergent co-star Winslet, "Kate said something to me once, 'People make it harder on themselves than they need to be. In life in general, but especially actors, they take themselves too seriously'."

She continued, "I don't know how I lucked out, but Kate Winslet and George Clooney are so similar in that they just love acting and that's it. They don't like the glitz and glamour. They don't like the makeup trailer, they don't like the magazines and the frufru-ness and the fancy award shows.

"They love being on set and hanging out with the Teamsters and they love talking to the wardrobe department and hanging out with the sound guys. There's no 'I'm this' or 'I'm that'."
