Notable Role: Jane Chapman (Big Little Lies)
Although Shailene Woodley won’t be in her 20s much longer—with her 30th birthday quickly approaching in November—it felt important to give her the attention she deserves. It takes serious skill to act alongside big names like Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Reese Witherspoon, and Laura Dern while still being able to hold your own. She was even nominated at the Emmys in the category“Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her portrayal of Jane Chapman in Big Little Lies. Woodley has been chipping away at her career since her first commercial modeling gig at age 4, and has been acknowledged for her roles in The Descendents, The Fault in Our Stars, and the Divergent trilogy. It will be exciting to see what Woodley does next as she enters the next decade of her life and career.
