Shailene Woodley had no problem filming a steamy sex scene for her latest film White Bird in a Blizzard. But what did her parents think when they watched their daughter hop in bed with Thomas Jane for the racy scene?

"[It's] crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it," the 22-year-old actress said recently during an NYC screening of White Bird in a Blizzard. "I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I'm only 22. My boobs are great. They don't need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it."

Quite the supportive parents, no?!

Speaking of support, Woodley opened up about championing women.

"Women should be there for other women," she dished. "It's such cruelty and competition out there. Women must help other women. Not say those ugly things about the others just out of their insecurity. I don't believe in that."

During the screening, Woodley also revealed how her parents came up with her unique name. "My mother saw ‘Shai' on a license plate, loved it, and tried figuring how to adapt it. Shailo, Shailee, Shailey, Shailette. So it became Shailene," she explained.
