Shailene glows on the cover of the June InStyle, and they released some great quotes concerning both her role in TFIOS and her scoliosis.
On her scoliosis:
“My friends and I named my brace Casey. I took it off to eat, to go on dates, and to shower. It was uncomfortable, but I thought, ‘I can complain, or I can embrace it, literally, and move on.’”
On her role in “The Fault in Our Stars”:
“It changed my whole life and put things in perspective. I realized I was good at being outwardly positive because that’s how I am by nature. But internally? I was so mean to myself. Realizing I needed to make a shift was a big moment for me. ‘F**k you, insecurity. F**k you, lack of confidence!’ When I finally realized I have to live life for myself and not for anyone else is when I started being more generous and kind and grateful, I was able to give back more.”
