'I haven't got a TV': Shailene Woodley insists she doesn't enjoy watching television... as she joins co-stars at the Emmys to celebrate Big Little Lies
It's thanks to television viewers that she has a successful and remarkably well-paid career.
But Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley insists that she does not watch the medium. Indeed, she claims, she does not even own a television.
'I’m a reader. So I always read, so I always read a book instead of turning on my TV,' she insisted as she walked the red carpet.

And Shailene has no time for those that do. 'All my friends who watch TV, I always just ask them when they have time to.'
And she further explained, according to The Hollywood Reporter: 'I haven't had a TV since I moved out of my parents' house when I was 18.'
Despite her own dislike of TV, Shailene has found success on the small screen.
Her show had six nominations for televised Emmys Sunday night.
Aglow: While on the red carpet, she dished to Jason Kennedy of E! News that she neither watches TV nor owns a TV set, according to the Washington Post
The 25-year-old was herself nominated Sunday for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie - but lost to her Big Little Lies co-star Laura Dern.
The Ralph Lauren gown she wore custom-made, according to Pret-A-Reporter, which noted her stylist was Ilaria Urbinati.
Her red carpet ensemble was cinched-in tightly at the waistline and pleated below it, with a hemline that hit the floor.
The sleeveless dress' plunging neckline fell to her midriff.

Unplugged: According to The Hollywood Reporter , she'd also revealed on the red carpet that 'I haven't had a TV since I moved out of my parents' house when I was 18'
Shailene, whose hair was a mousy brown on Big Little Lies but has been its current blonde color since late July, had tied her locks into a ponytail.
Her fingernails were black, and she'd accessorized with a bracelet and two rings, all from Alexis Bittar.
As the awards show got going, Shailene took the stage with her Big Little Lies co-stars Laura, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Zoe Kravitz to present the first prize of the night.
That trophy, which was for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series, went to John Lithgow for his portrayal of Winston Churchill on Netflix' The Crown.

While accepting her own award onstage, Laura extended her gratitude to Reese, Nicole, Zoe and Shailene: 'I share this with my tribe of four ladies.'
After Laura got her prize, another big win came for Big Little Lies - that of Alexander Skarsgard for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie.
Just as Shailene and Laura were nominated against one another, so are Nicole and Reese.
Those latter two blondes, who are both producers on Big Little Lies as well, will be facing off for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie.
Big Little Lies has also been nominated for Outstanding Limited Series.
