The "Divergent" star also revealed what it was like playing a cancer survivor and a teenager who falls in love with a boy she meets in a cancer support group.
"A lot of us feel on a daily basis, but we just don't acknowledge our feelings," says Woodley in the behind the scene video posted on TIME. "This movie won't let you leave without acknowledging your feelings."
Author John Green was also featured as he talks about his struggles to finish the book and how a 16-year-old cancer patient who happens to be his friend inspired him to create a love story so sick that made everyone fall in love all over again.
According to the publication, all quotes in the trailer are verbatim from book, including the famous TFIOS line, ""I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly and then all at once." With so many heart-warming quotes from the book, fans will be treated with so many unforgettable lines featured in the movie even Hazel's discussion with her parents about wanting to be a regular teenager.
"To be fair, I'm not dissing on Shakespeare," says Green when asked why he titled his novel "The Fault In Our Stars" in an interview posted on Newsday. "But that line is often taken out of context. It's one thing to say it if you're a Roman nobleman and have been born into a life of privilege. But very often the quote is used in a general way to say that people make their own fate. And that's ludicrous."
An unusual love story between two cancer patients, the movie unites everyone not just with people who have cancer but everyone who felt the overwhelming emotion. "The Fault In Our Stars" will hit the big screen on June 6, with advance screening, "The Night Before Our Stars" on June 5.
