Actress Shailene Woodley is open to the idea of running for Congress, according to a report.

"There was a point last year when I was working for Bernie Sanders where I thought, ‘Huh, maybe I'll run for Congress in a couple years,'" Woodley told the New York Times when asked whether her environmental activism could dovetail into a political career. "And you know what? I'm not going to rule it out. Who knows? Life is big, and I'm young."

Woodley, 25, was a vocal surrogate for Sanders during his unsuccessful bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

An environmental and climate activist, she was arrested in North Dakota in 2016 for criminal trespassing while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Woodley, who starred in the film adaptions of the Divergent book series, also revealed that her feelings towards feminism had flipped, having previously said she was not a feminist.

"I would today consider myself a feminist," she said. "If females start working through the false narrative of jealousy and insecurity fed through a patriarchal society, then not only will we have more women feeling confident in themselves and supportive of one another, but we will start introducing a type of matriarchy, which is what this world needs."
