Golden Globe Award-nominated actress and Secret Life star Shailene Woodley is one Hollywood starlet worth looking out for.

Born November 15, 1991 in Simi Valley, California, Woodley began taking acting classes at age 5. She made her screen debut in 1999 in the TV movie Replacing Dad and soon began landing roles on television shows like The O.C., The District, Crossing Jordan and CSI: NY.

In 2008, Woodley was cast the lead role of Amy Juergens in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, a popular ABC Family TV show that has seen four seasons.

The Secret Life celebrity had her big screen breakthrough when she performed opposite George Clooney in the 2011 hit film The Descendants. The movie, in which she plays Alexandra, Clooney’s rebellious daughter, propelled Woodley into star status.

This year, the 20-year-old actress won the National Board of Review’s award for Best Supporting Actress and was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Woodley has been nominated for over a dozen additional awards, including an Alliance of Women Film Journalists award for Best Breakthrough Performance and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female.

Stay tuned because this actress, considered one of the 55 faces of the future in Nylon magazine’s Young Hollywood issue, won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
