The 25-year-old actress, who has appeared in films including The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, and in last year’s HBO series Big Little Lies, was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot while protesting the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. She eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year of probation.
Shailene, along with thousands others, were at the Native American area to stop developers from building the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), which would run through Sioux land and potentially contaminate their water supply. For months, protesters, including Shailene, stood their ground at Standing Rock until ultimately being forced out. Shailene opened up to Marie Claire in their September 2017 issue about the moment she was arrested at the camp site, and the terrifying events that followed.
“I was strip-searched. Like get naked, turn over, spread your butt cheeks, bend over,’ she said. ‘They were looking for drugs in my a**. When you’re in a jail cell and they shut that door, you realise no one can save you”.
Shailene Woodley told she was strip searched. Watch this video below.
That’s awful. Poor Shailene, as well as the others, including Native Americans who were mistreated and arrested for trying to protect their rightful land. Shortly after President Donald Trump, 71, took office, he okayed the DAPL, and the standoff ended — for now. “The sun is still shining,” he said. ‘The water is clean…” he said as he visited the pipeline site. “Yeah, everybody still has water,” Shailene said, “except for the three leaks that have already happened…There’s nothing worth fighting for more than each other. The planet is going to be fine. It’s humans who aren’t going to be OK. We’re broken. That’s why the world is where it is.”
Shailene Woodley recalls her arrest, the police were looking for drugs in my ass. Watch this video below.
