Shailene Woodley Opens Up About Her Arrest Last Year, Claims They Searched For Drugs In Her Ass….WHAT?
If you’re a teenager, you probably know Shailene Woodley from the Divergent franchise or The Spectacular Now. If you’re a little bit older, you probably know her from the fantastic HBO limited series, Big Little Lies.
And if you don’t know her from the projects listed above, maybe you’ll remember her as that actress who was super committed to making sure people knew about the Dakota Access pipeline. She protested against it and was an outspoken advocate for Native American rights.
She, and several other people, were arrested last year while protesting. That’s why you see her in that mugshot above. During a recent interview with Marie Claire U.K., Woodley revealed just how bizarre the whole situation was. She remembered seeing tanks before being arrested, “This is some Divergent sh*t. The only time in my life that I saw a tank like that was on set in Atlanta,” she said.
And then she talked about what happened after she was arrested, and it’s not pretty…
“I was strip-searched. Like get naked, turn over, spread your butt cheeks, bend over. They were looking for drugs in my ass. When you’re in a jail cell and then shut that door. you realize no one can save you. If there’s a fire and they decide not to open the door, you’ll die. You are a caged animal.”
Damn. They looked in her butthole for drugs? That, uh, seems a bit unnecessary considering she wasn’t arrested on drug charges. I suppose they were hoping to find something that would stick, but it looks like all they found was a little bit of sh*t.
