Interview with: Shailene Woodley (Amy) from The Secret Life of the American Teenager
The Secret Life of the American Teenager's newest season starts tonight at 8:00 P.M. Eastern so make sure you watch it then, tape it, or find a way to view it later. I'm sorry for the delay in posting this, so it's only my two questions for Shailene. However, if you are a fan of hers and/or the show and want the whole interview I can happily email it to you, just leave your email in the comments and let me know!
L. Becker: My question is, since you portray a teen that's been through a pregnancy, if any of the fans are teen moms themselves or pregnant. If you've met anybody and they've kind of give you their thoughts or feelings about the show?
S. Woodley: Honestly, I haven't met as many teenage parents as I have met parents who are now like in their 40s or 30s even, but were pregnant as teenagers; and pretty much their feedback is just like, "Wow, the show brings me back to my days of confusion and torment and putting myself down for doing such a thing as a teenager; and I think it's really great how you kind of opened this up into current day 2009's teenager world and showed them the consequences of having fun per se without being careful about it."
L. Becker: Definitely. My other question was if you could have anybody guest star or direct or just help in the show in anyway, who would you like to see be involved in the future?
S. Woodley: Oh man, that's a tough one. Obviously, who wouldn't say Meryl Streep? I don't know, I think there's a lot of amazingly talented people out there and I think there's a lot of actors who haven't even really done a lot, who've only maybe done a couple of things, but who are truly incredibly talented. Anyone who just brings forth commitment, I think that's the most important thing. I'm always happy to meet new people and see their amazing talent.
L. Becker: Thank you.
