She survived acting alongside Bristol Palin in 'Secret Life'
This is real. Shailene deserves an Emmy, an Oscar, a Nobel Peace Prize, and the title of Poet Laureate for surviving a scene on "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" with guest star Bristol Palin. It is brutal watching Bristol pretending to know who Yo-Yo Ma is, but it is a triumph of the human spirit to see Shailene manage to act well nonetheless. You go, American teenager.
