Clara Baez

1. She's 100% down to Earth

She always uses second handed clothes except when she has to attend events and she has said that it's difference to balance her natural connection with the Earth and the commercial industry she works in.

2. Her acting skills are extraordinary

Her performance on The Descendants (2011), received award recognition, including the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female and a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. On the independent film The Spectacular Now (2013), she won the Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Cheers to that!

Still from The Spectacular Now.

2. She thinks standing for other women is the coolest

Watch this interview. I think you're awesome so I guess that counts.

4. She gives life to two great book characters

She succeeds in giving life to two very different novel book characters we love: Hazel in [The Fault In Our Stars](movie:602185) and Tris in The Divergent Series.

Her latest movie "Insurgent" is out today March 20th and her performance is out of this world once again. I definitely recommend you guys to check it out.
