Shailene Woodley stars in "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" on ABC Family as Amy Juergens. LA Times critic Robert Lloyd said of her performance, "Woodley stands out and is appealing as a kid in over her head." Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker said, "Woodley is utterly beguiling: an anti-Gossip Girl. Like a great silent film actress, she has a face that conveys shades of anguish and joy." The magazine later named her as a "Breakthrough of 2008," in their annual year-end issue alongside talent like Robert Pattinson and Kat Dennings. She also received two Teen Choice Nominations in 2009 and 2010, including one for Choice TV Drama Actress and she was nominated again in 2011.

On the big screen, Woodley stars in Alexander Payne's "The Descendants," opposite George Clooney and Beau Bridges, as Alexandra King.

Shailene Woodley began her career at the age of 5 when an agent recognized her potential and signed her on the spot. She has been working ever since. She started in commercials and then got her first TV role in the 1999 movie of the week "Replacing Dad," which starred two time Oscar nominee Mary McDonnell. More recently she played the title character in the popular Warner Bros. movie "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure" which was produced by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Julia Roberts. Her first lead role performance earned this review: "Felicity offers Woodley's feisty performance; she's warm and cheeky, and immensely fun to watch."

Woodley's other television work includes recurring roles on "Crossing Jordan," as a young Jill Hennessy, "The O.C.," and "Jack & Bobby," where she played the daughter of John Slattery. She additionally has made guest appearances on series like "Cold Case," "My Name is Earl," "CSI: NY," playing an angel-faced killer, and "Close to Home." She also had a lead role opposite Ann Margaret and Matthew Settle in the television movie "A Place Called Home," and co-starred with William Mapother and Treat Williams in her debut film "Moola."

When she is not on set, Woodley spends as much time outdoors as possible, thinking of ways she can help keep the environment beautiful and healthy for future generations. She also puts time in working with various charities that benefit children including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation.
