While promoting her upcoming film Divergent, Shailene has been opening up about her close relationship with the Oscar winner, who played her dad in The Descendants. And as it turns out, he's kinda like her dad in real life too. "He's like my second dad. He's got my back," Shailene told Splash. "I've never met somebody in the industry who's more grateful, who pays it forward without talking about it in the press or speaking about it to anyone else. That to me was the best advice, just learning through his actions."
And she told Marie Claire he is "still one of my favorite human beings," adding, "The things he talks about in the press, like going to Africa, are about one-thirtieth of the things he does. My mom and George are probably the only two people I've ever met who are truly genuine givers."
George has also raved about Shailene, telling ABC's "On the Red Carpet" back in 2012, "Long after we're in the ground, she's going to be at these events, getting awards. She's that kind of an actress. She's really something, that girl."
It's safe to say Shailene is one lucky girl.
