Watch: Shailene Woodley Loves Her "Big Little Lies" Costars

If you're wondering what the cast of The Secret Life of the American Teenager is up to now, you've come to the right place. 

You might know her from Big Little Lies or The Fault In Our Stars depending on what you're into, but Shailene Woodley first starred in the ABC Family show. 

From the creators of 7th Heaven, we also got this 2008 drama about the ways teen pregnancy affected the lives of close-knit friends and family. In a recent interview with Bustle, Woodley opened up about her time on the series. "I can only speak [about my characters' sex lives] through my experience with sex," Woodley shared. "When I signed onto Secret Life, I read [three] episodes and I signed a contract for six years. [Those episodes] all hit home. I had friends in high school who were pregnant. It felt like everything that I wanted to be sending into the world."

She also added that at time she found herself struggling to agree with the show's message. 

"There were a lot of things that were written into the scripts that not just me, but a lot of the cast, disagreed with," she continued. "There were belief systems that were pushed that were different than my own. Yet legally I was stuck there. To this day it's one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. So being on Secret Life propelled me to be more vocal about my own belief systems."

The show also starred Francia RaisaDaren Kagasoff, Megan Park, Molly Ringwald and Greg Finley—just to name a few.

Shailene Woodley

The actress was just 16 when she got her big break playing Amy Juergens, a teen whose unplanned pregnancy sends shockwaves through her high school. Shailene, now 31, has gone on to climb the ranks of Hollywood's A-list after her breakout performance in 2011's The Descendants, going on to front the Divergent film franchise and most recently starring in HBO's Big Little Lies

Shailene was engaged to NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but the couple broke up in February 2022 as she was filming the upcoming drama series Three Women.

"It was hard to film because I was going through the darkest, hardest time in my life; it was winter in New York, and my personal life was s---ty, so it felt like a big pain bubble for eight months," Shailene explained to PORTER in January. "I was so grateful that at least I could go to work and cry and process my emotions through my character."

Daren Kagasoff

Daren, 35, became an instant teen heartthrob thanks to his performance as Ricky Underwood, resident popular guy and father to Amy's baby. Since moving on from the ABC Family series, the actor has appeared on several television shows, including S.W.A. T. and The Village. He most recently co-starred in Devotion.

Francia recently opened up about dealing with online harassment amid their rumored tension.

"It's not good at all. It's not fun either," Francia told TMZ in May of the messages she's received. "They are pretty bad but I think the one that probably hurt the most was, 'I hope someone goes up your p--sy and rips out your other kidney you f--king whore."
