In case you lived under a rock, The Secret Life of the American Teenager was a show about a young girl dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. All the actors on the show were fabulous, but the one you probably remember is Shailene Woodley. She starred as Amy, the main character, for five seasons before the show ended and she moved onwards and upwards.
We all know Shailene Woodley as the movie star she is today.
But do you remember this adorable teen from her first major role on Secret Life?
Secret Life was packed with dramatic moments.
Teen pregnancy, engagements, infidelity, first loves, divorce, marriage, parenthood, sex, drugs, etc. That's not even the full list.
Shailene portrayed Amy's journey as pregnant high schooler to teen mom so well.
Look at that little baby's face!
Her character was sweet but also strong enough to stand up for herself.
No one got to push her around.
We got to experience all her "firsts" as she grew up on the show.
Who could forget their first kiss?
She was incredibly down-to-earth and real.
Everyone could find something about Amy to relate to.
The show gave us an honest depiction of the difficulties of being a first-time mom.
Especially when that mom was still in school.
She fell in love more than once.
Who could blame her? All the guys on Secret Life were smoking hot.
And some of those relationships turned into something more.
There were a lot of engagements on this show.
She took chances and made some life-changing decisions.
All while most people her age were busy worrying about their math final.
Amy was also really funny and quirky.
Basically, she was the kind of person you wanted to be friends with in high school.
And she could put anyone in their place with just a few words.
You did not want to cross Amy on a bad day.
She gave us one of the first great examples of resting bitch face.
It's just a burden that some of us have to bear. We can't be smiling all the time!
Without Shailene Woodley, there would be no Amy.
And without Amy, we would never have got to watch this wonderful show.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager is now streaming right here!
