Los Angeles: Shailene Woodley felt self-conscious about being skinny.

The 22-year-old actress, who gave a break-out performance playing George Clooney’s daughter in 'The Descendants', says she has stopped caring about being thin.

"My whole life I've been so self-conscious about being skinny. And just recently I don't care anymore," Woodley told Marie Clair.

"All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don't really matter at all. My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair -- things I'm so very grateful for now."

The actress is enjoying growing up but says she is currently single.

"I just haven't met anyone where I was like, 'Wow I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you'. I don't even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever."

Woodley, however, admires Clooney.

"He's still one of my favorite human beings. The things he talks about in the press, like going to Africa, are about one-thirtieth of the things he does. My mom and George are probably the only two people I've ever met who are truly genuine givers.
