Shailene Woodley Blasts ‘Twilight’ as ‘Unhealthy, Toxic Relationship’

Shailene Woodley is in the spotlight with her “Divergent” coming out this month, and she used that attention to voice her concerns over the “Twilight” books/films.

“‘Twilight,’ I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship,” the 22-year-old star said in the April 2014 issue of Teen Vogue.

“She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve,” she continued.

She’s not the only celebrity who has made their dislike for “Twilight” vocal. Stephen King called the series “tweenager porn,” and “The Vampire Chronicles” author Anne Rice took a jab by saying her creations would “feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun.”

Woodley is about to join “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart in a group of young actresses whose career get a serious boost from starring in young adult novels-turned movie series with her starring role in “Divergent,” adapted from Veronica Roth’s hit book series. The film hits theaters March 21.
