"There is one scene in the book where Gus goes to a gas station, and he tries to buy a pack of cigarettes because it’s the only way he can assert his own independence after becoming very sick. He [Ansel] did that scene so much justice, and he brought his all. It was midnight when we filmed it, and he just sat there and lost it for hours. I was just sort of in awe." - Shailene Woodley

One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.

“One of the reasons I became so outspoken when I decided to come out of treatment and talk about my issues was because when I grew up and I was dealing with the pressures to be thin - it was that time in the tabloids when very very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine and that’s what I was looking up to, so that’s what I had to idolize. I don’t want that for young girls to idolize, it’s very unhealthy — and there was nobody out there for me to look at and say ‘you know what maybe this is unhealthy, maybe starving myself isn’t the answer’ so I want to be that for a 13 year old girl at home deciding whether or not to eat dinner or an 18 year old girl deciding whether or not to keep her breakfast down, y’know there needs to be a role model out there and for the first time in my life I actually feel like one…”
