"Friends who watch TV, I always ask them — when do they have time to? When do people have time to?" She said. "I'm a reader, so I always read a book instead of check out my TV."
Twitter was noticeably dragging her for the comments, especially since she was at an event that celebrates television... but some fans have come to her defence.
"People trying to drag Shailene Woodley because she said she prefers to read over watch TV, is confirmation that everyone is stupid," one fan wrote.
"why are y'all trying to roast @shailenewoodley for saying she'd rather read than watch tv... lol who cares. good for her."
It's interesting to note that mostly all of Shailene's past projects have come from book adaptations.
