The Fault In Our Stars claimed seven prizes, including Choice Movie: Drama, Choice Lip-lock and the Choice Movie Actress and Actor prizes for Woodley and her co-star Ansel Elgort, respectively, while the pals' other film together, Divergent, was named Choice Movie: Action/Adventure. As Woodley accepted her Choice Movie Actress title, she encouraged fans to just be themselves, saying, "The truest form of bravery and courage is to wake up every single day, and to be ourselves. You do you. I'm gonna do me."
Meanwhile, British/Irish boyband One Direction topped the music categories, landing eight surfboard prizes during the televised ceremony, including Choice Music Group, Choice Summer Tour for their ongoing Where We Are trek, Choice Love Song for You and I, and Choice Break-Up Song and Choice Single: Group for Story of My Life.
Pretty Little Liars was the main winner in the TV section, while it was also a big night for singer/actress Selena Gomez, who picked up the Ultimate Choice accolade for her career achievements. During her acceptance speech, Justin Bieber's on/off girlfriend gave a special shout-out to her fans for their unconditional support through the good times and the bad, saying, "I have to be honest, especially this month, I cannot thank you guys (enough), because you remind me, amidst all the stuff that we deal with personally, you remind me of what's important. And that's giving, and loving, and caring about each other. You guys make me better." The 22 year old also dedicated the award to her mother for being "the greatest human being in the world".

Former Dynasty actress Emma Samms and pop stars Amelle Berrabah and Sarah Harding will be testing their bodies to the limit by taking part in a reality TV show centred around gymnastics. Sugababes singer Berrabah and ex-Girls Aloud star Harding will join other British celebrities, including Steps singer Ian 'H' Watkins, super-middleweight boxing champ Carl Froch, and veteran fitness guru Mr. Motivator in new BBC show Tumble.
The contestants will train with professional gymnasts to perfect tricky routines they will then showcase on the programme before a viewers' vote decides who stays and who goes.
Harding says, "I'm really looking forward (to it), but also a little bit scared about all the training I'll be doing - but at least it beats going to the gym."
Tumble is scheduled to air later this year (14).
British pop star Sarah Harding struggled to work with her boyfriend after they teamed up on her new solo material. The former Girls Aloud singer is striking out alone following the band's split last year (13) and she enlisted the help of her producer beau Mark Foster.
They worked on three tracks together at Harding's English countryside home, but the singer admits they continually clashed over "creative differences".
She tells the London Evening Standard, "Much of it I recorded from my house. Mark being a producer as well, we've got a little set-up in one of the spare rooms which we've turned into a studio.
"We don't work well together though. We have creative differences, to say the least. It's good, but we've got to try and maintain each other's roles. If I start trying to produce, it really p**ses him off, and vice versa."
Harding showcased the new tunes at a charity event at Kensington Palace in London on Friday (21Mar14).
British pop star Sarah Harding suffers from debilitating panic attacks due to anxiety issues. The former Girls Aloud star, who checked into rehab in 2011 to be treated for an addiction to sleeping pills and alcohol, was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as a child and she is often overcome by a crippling fear.
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I suffer with ADHD so I'm pretty hyper. I'm very isolated at home so when I've been away for a long time I get anxious. I've had panic attacks where I get shortness of breath and I start feeling dizzy with a dry mouth and feel hot and cold."
"Wowsers! Another baby aloud on the way! Congrats @KimberleyJWalsh and her lovely fella Justin!!" British pop star Sarah Harding celebrates the news her former Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh is pregnant.
British singer Sarah Harding is making plans to move to a warmer climate in a bid to find "real happiness". The former Girls Aloud star, who checked into rehab in 2011 to be treated for an addiction to sleeping pills and alcohol, is hoping to start a new life away from her native Britain.
The former Girls Aloud star originally took to Twitter.com on Monday (30Dec13) to clear up recent U.K. tabloid reports suggesting she was trying to emulate Angelina Jolie's career before going on to reveal her plans to emigrate.
She writes, "FYI (for your information) I don't want Angelina's career as yet again 'wrongly' stated... I would simply be honoured to sport a role she has had the sex appeal, charisma, strength of heart and spirit to take on...
"So before u (sic) tiny minds start to judge, no, Ima (I am) not drunk but those who seem to know best u (sic) will already know I'm struggling to sleep and all I can't get outta (out of) my mind right now is emigrating. A new start. Sun. Sea. Health. Family. New adventure and finally real happiness. Think that's my f**king point made finally."
Actor Danny Dyer decided to accept a role in longrunning British soap opera Eastenders over fears his career had become a joke following a string of film flops. The Business star will join the beloved show at Christmas (13) after spending several years snubbing offers from BBC bosses to become a member of the cast.
Now he reveals his floundering film career pushed him to take the leap to the small screen, and he hopes he can turn his fortunes around like his idol Sir Michael Caine.
Dyer tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Back in the Eighties, Michael was known for making terrible films and now he's been knighted. I can hope!
"I did too many people favours (accepting film roles). I realised, 'F**king hell, I'm becoming a bit of a joke here.' I'm my own worst enemy. I don't blame anyone but myself."
Dyer's most recent big screen release, Run for Your Wife, which also features Ray Winstone and Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, was deemed a massive failure after it earned just $963 (£602) from U.K. ticket sales in February (13).
Stars including Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberley Walsh, Alexandra Burke and Peter Andre were on hand to honour brave Brits at the annual Pride of Britain Awards in London on Monday night (07Oct13). James Corden, Ronnie Corbett, Sarah Harding, Katherine Jenkins and Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron also attended the ceremony, but were overshadowed on the night as the spotlight was shone on the country's most inspirational citizens.
Among those honoured included lollipop lady Karin Williams, who dived in front of an out-of-control car to push a group of children to safety, as well as eight-year-old Harley Lane, who raised more than £1,000 for charity by completing a sponsored run, despite having his arms and legs amputated as a toddler.
After presenting him with his award, Scherzinger told reporters, "I'm humbled to be here. Last year was my first year and I cried rivers. I just want to embrace everyone here."
Also feted was teenage activist Malala Yousafzai, who hit headlines around the world last October (12) when she was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen after campaigning for the rights of girls in Pakistan to go to school.
Sarah Harding suffered a major meltdown just minutes before she was due to face the world's press to announce the Girls Aloud comeback. The troubled singer was admitted to rehab in 2011 to address a dependency on alcohol and sleeping pills during a break from the pop group, and she was plagued with crippling nerves when she rejoined her co-stars to confirm their return last year (12).
Harding appeared with the rest of the group at a press conference in London to announce their final tour and greatest hits album, and bandmate Kimberley Walsh has now revealed her friend fell to pieces at the event.
Walsh alleges Harding started drinking to calm her nerves on the morning of the press conference, and was a tearful wreck by the time they took to the stage.
In her new autobiography, A Whole Lot of History, she writes, "On the day we did the press conference... I was really worried about Sarah. She was terrified about going out in front of the press and TV cameras again, especially as there was so much speculation about whether or not she was getting herself back together after her time in rehab. She'd had a couple of drinks to calm her nerves, which didn't help... She was really in a bad way... Just before we were due to go on stage... She started to cry... Suddenly Sarah was freaking out. 'I can't do this,' she said, 'I can't'... (But) she pulled herself together just in time."
Walsh goes on to admit she struggled with the "moral dilemma" of scheduling a Girls Aloud tour when her friend was so fragile, revealing she feared Harding would not be able to cope with the pressure.
She adds, "I even wondered whether a tour was the right thing for her to be doing - it became a moral dilemma. I wanted the tour to be amazing, but not at Sarah's expense."
The group split after completing the Ten tour.
