Shailene Woodley is one dedicated actress.

The Fault in Our Stars actress opened up to Glamour UK about nudity, sex scenes and life on set of the Divergent franchise and revealed that absolutely nothing will inhibit her when it comes to her work. Although some might clam up or become awkward at the thought of performing in a sex scene, Woodley has no problem with it.

"I'm totally comfortable with nudity," she tells the magazine's April issue. "I'm not sure it empowers me as an actress or anything, but if I'm going to do a movie with sex scenes, then I'm going to be naked, because I don't know about you, but I don't have sex with bras and panties on."

Truth bomb...dropped!

She's obviously "comfortable" because she flaunts her stuff while posing topless (and looking gorgeous) for the magazine!

What confuses her, however, is the American attitude towards sex. Her ambivalence about sex and sexuality, she says, makes her prefer the European lifestyle because she feels it's more comfortable about it.

"Part of the reason I love Europe is that sexuality is no big deal there. You go to a topless beach and the dudes aren't checking out your tits, because they're just boobs," she says. "[In America] sex is something that's not talked about – yet it's in our faces more than anything else."

She adds, "In school, rather than teach you about sex, they tell you about abstinence, which doesn't work."

But for such a free sexual spirit, Woodley surprisingly didn't have any "interest" in taking part in the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. 

"I wasn't really interested…I'd already signed on for Divergent anyway," she explains. "Also, I'd read the book and thought, 'If somebody really can pull this off and make a movie out of it, they will be the biggest genius.'"

Now that the second installment of the franchise, Insurgent, is on its way, Woodley dishes tells the magazine that one of her co-stars in particular has made a huge difference in her life, and that special someone is Kate Winslet.

"When we started doing press for the first [Divergent] film, she sent me this beautiful email…Kate has become like an older sister to me," she says. "I know she's got my back. I've got hers, too."
