Everyone needs a backup plan -- even Golden Globe nominated actresses.
On the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars this evening we learned that "The Descendants" star Shailene Woodley is studying to be an herbalist, and it's apparently something the 20-year-old actress is passionate about.
In November the actress, who also stars on "The Secret Life of The American Teenager," told the FABLife:
“If I wasn’t acting, I'd be either studying massage therapy or probably in the woods with some random group trying to survive in the wild, and I’m not kidding, just to see if I could do it. Or going to herbalism school."
It sounds as if she followed through on her passion -- but we weren't the only ones surprised to learn she was taking herbalism classes. Comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted:
Is the teenage soughter from the descendandts really gonna b am herbalist or was that a "bit"?

Shailene may not have been nominated for an Oscar tonight, but she certainly wins the award for most unexpected hobby.
