Picture the single most out-of-sync anecdote a person could drop on the red carpet for television's biggest night. Got it?

You don't. What Shailene Woodley said was worse.

The nominee for supporting actress in a limited series stumbled into an epic faux pas when taking part of E's "Live From the Red Carpet," when she admitted she really doesn't have time to watch television.

All my friends watch TV. I just ask them when they have time to. When do people have time to? I’m a reader. So I always read a book instead of turning on my TV.

Sure. I mean, you're literally at an event celebrating the medium, but it's cool you don't really bother keeping up with.

Moreover, Woodley clarified, she doesn't even own a television. 

"I actually haven’t had a TV since I moved out of my parents’ house at 18," Woodley said. 

Well. Bully for you, Shailene.
