Shailene Woodley has already sounded off on Edward and Bella’s “toxic” relationship in Twilight, now she’s opening up about her own love life.

In the April issue of Marie Claire, the Divergent star talks about her first kiss and being single. She also weighs in on the one celebrity everyone seems to have an opinion about lately (we’re lookin’ at you, Miley Cyrus!), and reveals the insecurities she battled in high school.

Check out the 5 most fascinating quotes from her Marie Claire cover story below:

On Her First Kiss: “I was the latest bloomer there ever was. I was still playing with Barbies at 14 and didn’t have my first kiss until 15-and-a-half. He had big, beautiful lips, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with those.'”

On being single: I just haven’t met anyone where I was like, ‘Wow, I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you.’ I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever.”

On fan culture:  “People have always been fans of people, but I can’t relate to any of these girls or boys who scream. It’s idolizing someone you don’t know. None of those people know me.”

On Miley Cyrus: “I don’t really know anything about twerking. I admire that she’s doing what she wants to do. I wasn’t really a fan of hers before, and now I’m just so fascinated by her. I love how everyone’s throwing a fit about something that isn’t their life.”

On Her Body Image: “My whole life I’ve been so self-conscious about being skinny. And just recently I don’t care anymore. All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don’t really matter at all. My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair—things I’m so very grateful for now.”
