Shailene Woodley likes to live a ''low-key life''.

The 22-year-old actress, who shot to fame after appearing in 'The Descendants' in 2011, didn't want to be thrown into the limelight and would prefer to be on a beach than at a glamorous showbiz event with other high-profile stars.

Speaking to Company magazine, she said: ''I don't really participate in any of the hoopla.

''I lead a fairly low-key life - I'm a beach girl and the idea of putting on a dress and heels when I could be on the beach just doesn't appeal to me!''

The brunette beauty recently admitted she's remained level-headed over the past three years because she's ignored negative comments and focused on her career.

She explained: ''Someone once told me that it's none of my business what anyone else thinks of me. That was an epiphany. The thing about this industry that ungrounds people so often is fear. It's the fear of not being accepted, not being enough, being compared, not being this or that...It's just clutter! It just doesn't need to be there.''
