Shailene Woodley wants everyone to back off of Miley Cyrus. The provocative Cyrus is just doing her own thing, she told Vanity Fair.

"Miley isn’t rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions," "The Fault In Our Stars" actress told the magazine. "She just does herself."

Woodley said it doesn't matter "whether you agree with what she’s doing or not," it's "none of your business what she does."

The 22-year-old actress also had a few words for parents who are upset over Cyrus' behavior.

"Why are all these parents or all these people freaking out about Miley being herself? 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. Make a big deal about the bullies at school who are beating kids up."

Woodley is not one to shy away from speaking her mind. The actress recently spoke out in support of onscreen nude sex scenes saying they're no big deal.

"Everyone was freaked out because I'm nude, but in real life, when I have sex, I'm naked," she told New York Magazine of her upcoming movie "White Bird in a Blizzard." "I don't have a bra on, and I don’t usually have panties on. So let’s make a real movie! Let's bring truth to the scene! I didn't want to be exploited, but this girl--like most girls when they first have sex--doesn't know what she’s doing. I wanted their first kiss to be sloppy, teenagerish making out. When you're younger, you think you know what to do, but you really don't."
