Shailen Woodley has revealed that she and her friends have a “pleasure fight” that they call “petrified wood.”
The actress, who recently announced that she was pregnant with her first child, spoke to reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Beverly Hills, California.
“It’s a little bit like the movie, ‘The Pervert’s Guide to Love’,” she said.
“You’re going through a period where you’re not really sure what’s going to happen, but you just go with what’s gonna happen.
It’s kind of like, ‘Petrify me, pierce me, and kill me.'”
“Pierce me” refers to Woodley’s relationship with her husband, actor Mark Ruffalo, who was recently accused of sexual assault.
Woodley called her former husband’s accusers “scumbags.”
Woodley also spoke about her new book, “The Perverter’s Guide,” which she co-authored with her sister, Shailie.
“My book is a kind of a guidebook for the younger generation,” Woodley said, “and I think it’s a great story, and I hope it’ll be shared by everyone.”
The author also said that her book is about the “pain of not being able to have kids.”
“It really touches a lot of different kinds of things,” Woodly said.
Wood’s pregnancy has been the subject of speculation for months.
“When I found out I was pregnant I was like, Oh my God, what if my baby is going to have a penis?
What if it’s going, Oh, it’s not going to be like a normal penis,” she said on Monday.
“So, I’m just trying to figure out how do I cope with that.
I’ve just been going through it in my own way.
It was kind of strange.
It took me a while to get over it.”
Wood was asked about the speculation surrounding her pregnancy in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“People were saying that I wasn’t pregnant and I’m not pregnant,” she told the magazine.
“And I’m like, Well, I don’t know if you have to be pregnant, I didn’t get pregnant, so I’m definitely not pregnant.”
“And so I didn, so then I was wondering, Well why did they think I was?” she continued.
“They were thinking, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant and she’s not pregnant.'”
