Despite being nominated for her work in the television adaptation of Big Little Lies, star Shailene Woodley stated she doesn't own a TV or watch much of it at all.

You don't. What Shailene Woodley said was worse.

"I haven't had a TV since I moved out of my parents' house when I was 18", she said.

"All my friends who watch TV, I always ask them when they have time to", she said.

Despite starring in one of the year's biggest shows, Shailene Woodley wants you to know that she's too busy to watch TV.

Hearing that Shailene Woodley doesn't own a television wasn't entirely surprising considering she has previously talked about her aversion to modern technology.

"Shailene Woodley asking who has time to watch TV is that annoying girl who reminds the teacher to collect the homework at the end of class", one tweeted. "I'm a reader, so I always read a book". After that, she went on to star in movies, including The Fault in Our Stars and the Divergent series.

Woodley did, however, have incredibly positive and supportive things to say about the cast and crew of Big Little Lies.

People on Twitter, many of which are film or TV critics, thought Woodley's comments about TV were ironic given that she was at a television award show. She also added that she's more of a reader.
