Before Shailene Woodley starred in films like 'Divergent' and 'The Fault In Our Stars', she was just a rich little girl from Newport Beach. Well, she played one on TV, anyway.

Yup. When Shailene was just a wee tween she portrayed Marissa Cooper's (Mischa Barton) little sis on the Fox teen drama, "The O.C." In later seasons, the role would be taken over by actress Willa Holland (who can now be seen on "Arrow"), but Woodley was the original Kaitlin Cooper in 2003 and 2004.

Watch the adorable Shailene before she became an A-lister and Golden Globe nominee in this TV throwback moment:


Two years later, Shailene played the title role in the WB TV movie, "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure." Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the film for more young Shai. (Tip: skip to 1:50 for her interview):
