Shailene Woodley Blames 'Big Little Lies' for Giving Her Baby Bug

In addition to talking about her role as single mom Jane Chapman on the hit drama series, the 'Divergent' star also opens up about working with Oscar winner Meryl Streep for the second season.

AceShowbiz - Playing a TV mum has given "Big Little Lies" star Shailene Woodley the baby bug.

The actress, who portrays single mum Jane Chapman on the hit drama, admits she likes the fact she can give her TV son Iain Armitage back to his parents at the end of each day, but the experience has her thinking she'd also quite like to go home to her own kid in the future.

Speaking to at the Balmain show as part of Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2019/2020 on Friday, March 01, the "Divergent" star, 27, said, "The best thing about playing a mom on TV is you get to send them (kids) home at the end of the day with their real parents... It's great, but I want little babies so bad now."

Shailene also opened up about what it's like to act alongside multiple Oscar winner Meryl Streep on the second season of the show, stating, "It was exactly as you would imagine working with Meryl Streep to be - she's a legend for a reason."

"The woman can act her face off. She really is a master of her craft. That's sort of a lost art in acting these days, so working with her was a beautiful reminder of why we do what we do and showed me how to grow that skill set."

Woodley previously revealed "Big Little Lies" awoke her passion for acting when she took time away from Hollywood after hitting a wall in her career, following a "hard experience" filming the last "Divergent" movie, "The Divergent Series: Allegiant".

"There was a point in my life, right before 'Big Little Lies', where I had hit a wall with acting," she told PorterEdit digital magazine last year (18). "I felt it was time to do something different. I called my agents and said, 'Please don't send me any more scripts; I need to explore other avenues'. They respected me and didn't send me anything for almost a year until 'Big Little Lies'..."

"I don't know that I've ever worked with a group of women where competition didn't get in the way of sisterhood. Every single person was championing the other members (of the cast)."

And she is glad she took a leap of faith with the series, which also stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, insisting it's "the best job in the world".
