After admitting back in March that she got rid of almost everything she owned after shooting Divergent, the 22-year-old actress said she's still "couch surfing."
"I think you're a very interesting person," Jimmy Kimmel said, after Shailene revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday she could fit nearly all of her possessions into just one suitcase. "Almost everything," Shailene went on. "I have some kitchen items that my grandma is using. But other than that, yeah, everything that I own and use is in a carry-on suitcase. I figure if I only own a few things and it gets lost, then I would get nothing."
"That takes an unbelievable amount of self-control," Jimmy quipped. Further explaining her situation, Shailene added, "I was only home for 15 days last year and I got home and I was like, 'I don't want to be alone. I want to be with my friends and family. So, I got rid of everything just so I could have one suitcase that would be easy to transport between houses and just kind of couch surf for a few months. But it's so refreshing and it takes so much stress away when you're like, 'Ugh, I only have one pair of jeans to wash.' It's so nice."
There was a point that Shailene had a house, but, the Fault in Our Stars star gave it to her grandmother. As for where she lives now, Shailene said, "Literally on friends' couches," adding, "I was only here in L.A. for two months, so when you're home you kind of want to soak up faces and places...like familiarity, feel comfortable...And then I leave again."
In addition to not having a home, Shailene also doesn't own an Ipad and she just got a cell phone (by force).
"I do have a phone right now because we've been doing so much press and they were like, 'Shai, we need to be able to get ahold of you, so here's a temporary phone and we've taped the number to the back of it so you won't forget it,'" she said with a laugh. "It's kind of hilarious."
While couch surfing, Shailene only carries a few hoodies, basic tank tops, t-shirts, jeans and leggings with her.
