Shailene Woodley looked calm when she accepted the award for Breakthrough Performance for her role in The Descendants at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (June 3). However the 20-year-old actress admitted later on she was nervous.
She said in the press room, “This is so surreal! It’s crazy growing up watching the awards, and then actually being called up to the stage to accept this award. Just wow!”
She also told MTV News, “I started sweating a whole lot. Like, a waterfall of sweat. I don’t even remember what happened, except for Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield’s smiling, awesome faces. Thank God they were up there. I would have been so nervous.”
As for what she thought of Russell Brand as the host?
“I think he’s just so effing funny, and I’m all about him and everything that he’s saying. He’s like a political, or like an anti-political activist, you know? And I really love his revolutionary thinking. I’m into it. [He has] a really profound message, and without being preachy.”
