Actress Shailene Woodley is tipped to be the next big thing with her star roles in Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars.

But that's not what people are most interested in at the moment.

Woodley has opened up about her unconventional beauty, health and diet beliefs, which she says people call "post-apocalyptic." Let's take a look:

Shailene Woodley's guide to life

  • She's an avid environmentalist, herbalist, learns a lot about agriculture and thinks the food system in America is massively corrupt, she told Into the Gloss.

  • She's a survivor. In an interview with Natural Health magazine, she said, "For me, having my basic necessities covered and being able to take care of myself is reassuring. If the power goes out, I know how to make a fire and where a water source is and how to find my own food."

  • Her friends live the same earthy lifestyle, "We were foraging for wild leeks in Maine last year, and one of my friends said, 'Does anyone want the rest of my rhizome?' [ginger root] And we all cracked up, thinking that only here and with this group of people would someone ask that question."

  • She eats clay to rid her body of metals. "'I've discovered that clay is great for you because your body doesn't absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. And, this is crazy: it also helps clean heavy metals out of your body."

  • She only uses natural beauty products, and does oil pulling to clean her teeth.

  • She lets her vagina sunbathe and thinks it is good for the down there region to get some Vitamin D.

  • She embraces the now, saying one minute she can be doing something very Hollywood and, "in the next moment, I might be spending the night on some random person's couch, and that's amazing, too. It's about being present and surrendering to what's in front of you."

  • Shailene Woodley embraces life. "Living in a state of fear makes no sense," she told Natural Health. "If I have X number of days to live, I am not going to live them in fear. Where's the laughter in it? Where's the joy?"

Don't think we'll be eating clay anytime soon, but that last bit sounds pretty spot on to us.
