Shailene Woodley Actually Feels Pretty Good About Those Sex Scenes

Not to mention her boobs.

A couple of weeks ago, Brooklyn Decker became the latest celeb to clue us in on the supreme awkwardness that is the Hollywood sex scene. But Shailene Woodley, ever the endearing black sheep, would like you to know that actually, hers was pretty awesome. And her parents even thought so, too. (Which is not awkward?)

Woodley filmed said scene for her latest movie, White Bird in a Blizzard. And during a New York City screening last night, she had no problem divulging why it was ultimately NBD. "[It's] crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it," she said. "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."

Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it, right? But really, it's nice to see a young actress speaking candidly about being proud of her body. Plus, it makes us think that perhaps all of our favorite on-screen love scenes weren't quite so face-clutchingly mortifying to film. Maybe.
