Shailene Woodley, our whimsical forest nymph who makes her own soap and doesn’t have a house, has taken a step into the modern age by hooking herself up with a cell phone. After all, being an actress starring in one of Hollywood’s big new franchises isn’t really conducive to living off the grid, eh?
To that end, Shailene now has a cell phone, even though she’s previously stated that she hates the things and finds them impersonal. Here’s what she’s previously said about technology:
As far as the hacking stuff goes, I don’t really have to worry about that. I’m not a big technology person. I don’t even have a smartphone. I don’t even have a cellphone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone. There’s a bigger lack of privacy than there’s ever been, but there’s also a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there’s ever been. I mean … just asking people for directions. Since I got rid of my phone, having to pull over and be like, “Hey, buddy—do you know how to get here?” I’m talking to people more than I’ve ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have.
Welp, forget all that: she’s living in 2014 now! Here’s a photo of Shailene in the wild (at a farmers’ market) with a smartphone in her pocket!
Appereantly Shailene has her phone now (in her pocket), maybe for a while. So it can be her who deleted tweets. pic.twitter.com/Vw7Wu3TveR

Massive news, as you can see. Also, homegirl has had a Twitter account for over a year, but she never had a cell phone? Seems a bit weird… I really don’t understand Shailene Woodley but I’m fascinated by her.
