Earth Angel

You would never know it by her social-media feed, but the L.A.-based Woodley is landing—and nailing—plum roles left and right. This month's coming-of-age crowd-pleaser The Spectacular Now earned her and costar Miles Teller the Special Jury Award for Acting at Sundance. She has just wrapped The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (out next May), for which she learned to ride a motorcycle for her role as Peter Parker's love interest Mary Jane Watson. Of her costars, Woodley says, "Andrew [Garfield, who plays Peter Parker] brings the human factor to his characters," and "Emma [Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy] is a very strong woman—I feel empowered by her. We connected on a personal level, and helped each other on some personal things." Soon Woodley begins shooting The Fault in Our Stars, adapted from John Green's novel, in which she plays a terminally ill cancer patient.
