“Big Little Lies” star Shailene Woodley told an E! reporter on the Emmys red carpet that she’s more of a “reader” and doesn’t really watch television.
Being a television star, it’s quite surprising but Woodley admits that she hasn’t had one in 6 years.
“I haven’t had a TV since I’ve moved out of my parents house at 18,” she said at the 69th annual 69th Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet.
The “Divergent” star also may have admitted that she’s homeless.
“I technically don’t have a home anywhere so I suppose there’s no TV to put in that home,” the 25-year-old actress added.
She added that she doesn’t understand how people have the time to watch television.
As soon as Twitter got hold of Woodley’s comments, the criticisms rolled in with some people likening her to the “annoying girl” in class and others simply calling her “smug.”

“I’m a reader,” says Shailene Woodley, who doesn’t have a TV (or a home) and makes her own deodorant out of ground up Smurfs. #Emmys2017
