Don't worry, Miley Cyrus: Shailene Woodley has totally got your back.

In an interview for the July issue of Vanity Fair, the 22-year-old actress defended the famous pop star against negative public reactions to her image.

"Miley isn't rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions," she said. "She just does herself. And regardless of whether you agree with what she's doing or not, it's none of your business what she does."

The "Divergent" star says parents worrying about Miley should focus their concern elsewhere.

"If you don't want your kids to watch it, you know, you can change that situation at home, but don't make a big deal of what she's doing," Woodley said. "Make a big deal about the bullies at school who are beating kids up."

It's no surprise that Woodley would empathize with Miley, as the "Fault in Our Stars" actress values being oneself above almost all else.

"People that I look up to in life are people who make a difference, and brave, strong women," she said. "The greatest people who have inspired me in my life don’t go out trying to be a role model. They just are devoted ... and they’re not afraid of what other people think of them.”
