Shailene Woodley has more ''freedom'' since getting rid of her mobile phone.

The 'Divergent' actress admits she is not a ''big technology'' person and since getting rid of her communications device, she has found she is interacting with others much more.

She told The Daily Beast: ''I'm not a big technology person. I don't even have a smart phone. I don't even have a cell phone! If I were to have one, it would be a flip phone.

''There is a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there's ever been. Since I got rid of my phone, [I'm] having to pull over and be like, 'Hey, buddy -- do you know how to get here?'

''I'm talking to people more than I've ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have.''

The 23-year-old actress enjoys collecting natural spring water and foraging for berries in the mountains, and admits her interest in ''urban survival skills'' helped her land the role of Beatrice Prior in 'Divergent'.

She said: ''The producers asked me what I liked to do in my spare time and I told them I used to study how to survive in the wild -- how to make shelter, build fire, and create weapons out of the ecosystem --but I live in a city, so it also got me thinking about urban survival skills.''
