John Green's highly-acclaimed book adaptation "The Fault In Our Stars" is making a lot of buzz now that the premiere date in just around the corner.

Apparently, Woodley wrote a letter to Boone expressing her interest to play the part of Hazel Grace Lancaster and her excitement turned off the director as he wanted to cast someone closer to the age of the lead role.

"Within about two minutes, I knew it was going to be her," Boone admits after Woodley auditioned for the role. "I was on the floor. I thought, 'Why am I fighting this? There's nobody better than her. She's awesome.' "
Author John Green couldn't help but to agree with the director when he saw Woodley's audition and was in awe by her performance.
"I suddenly was in a blind panic, jumping on the phone and screaming, 'We must lock this down! It has to be Shailene Woodley!'" revealed Green.
