Divergent star Shailene Woodley took her new short cut to the red carpet at the VMAs Sunday night, looking sleek and sexier than ever.

“It’s really awesome because there’s no upkeep,” Woodley, 21, told PEOPLE about her new do. “It dries in two seconds and it’s nice not to spend a lot of time getting ready.”

Woodley donated about eight inches of her long locks to Children With Hair Loss earlier this month in honor of her upcoming role as cancer patient (and awesome teen) Hazel Grace Lancaster in The Fault in Our Stars.

Did she have any second thoughts about the big change? “Hell no!” she said enthusiastically. “I want to go shorter but I don’t think I’m allowed to.”

Really? So how short are we talking? “I want to go short like Natalie Portman did in V for Vendetta. That would be so cool and liberating.” Tell us: Do you think Woodley should go for the full head shave? How are you liking the new length on her?

She looked fantastic light night. Really the image of healthy youth. Toned everything and not too much skin showing.

She do whatever she wants with her hair, she’s got a gorgeous face, and personality to match!

Hair always grows back. Good for her for the donation!

To be fair…it’s supposed to be shorter for the role… I guess maybe the Studio said no, but Hazel’s hair is supposed to be like Natalie Portman’s hair after it grew out after V for Vendetta.

@ Alyce
are you kidding me with that comment???? NO TALENT?!!! She was in an Oscar nominate movie with George Clooney called The Descendants, and she stole the movie! Maybe you should broaden your horizons a little bit?!
