The new hippie Hollywood: From Gwyneth Paltrow to Shailene Woodley

In the 1960s they were known as flower children, but these days they're known as celebrities. The hippie lifestyle is making a comeback, and it's largely due to Hollywood.

Gwyneth Paltrow is the latest star to trump the powers of nature. In the May 29 issue of her GOOP newsletter, she insinuated that water has feelings.

“I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," Paltrow wrote. "I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it.”

The post comes only a couple months after Shailene Woodley, a more well-established earth spirit, revealed that she eats clay (she uses it as toothpaste).

"What it does is your body doesn't absorb clay. It binds to radioactive isotopes as well as heavy metals and it helps your body eliminate it," Woodley told Access Hollywood while promoting her new film "Divergent." "So it's one of the only ways to get rid of radiation out of our bodies."

The 22-year-old actress also drinks out of a glass Mason jar to avoid the chemicals in plastic, exposes her private parts to the sun to get them some vitamin D, and only buys consignment clothing.

"I'm going to be a citizen of this planet, and I'm going to do my responsibility and live in stride with nature instead of constantly fighting against her," Woodley told The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite the fact that she leads one of the biggest franchises in Hollywood, you won't see Woodley on her phone 24/7 -- she doesn't even have one!

"I'm not a big technology person," she told The Daily Beast earlier this year. "I don't even have a smartphone. I don't even have a cell phone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip phone."

The "Descendants" alum explained that getting rid of her cell meant she could be more community oriented like we were in the past. "I'm talking to people more than I've ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch," she said. "The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have."

Meanwhile, Alicia Silverstone is more concerned with sharing her breast milk. In 2013, the "Clueless" star came up with a solution to help vegans who don't produce enough juice for their own kids.

"Because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives," Silverstone wrote on her blog, The Kind Life. "It's why I'm starting the Kind Mama Milk Share, a way for moms to connect with other moms in their area. If you have milk to share —post it! If you are in need of milk — post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!"

And in 2012, Silverstone established that she was not your regular mama when she filmed herself feeding her 11-month-old son from her own mouth.

"It's a part of the weaning process, so while I'm still breast-feeding it's just a way to introduce him to food when he doesn't have teeth… and he can't chew," she later explained to Entertainment Tonight, adding, "this has been going on for thousands of years -- still going on all over the place -- and it's natural."

But not all celebrities are embracing hippie living. Chloe Grace Moretz appeared to call out the likes of Woodley in a recent interview with BuzzFeed about Hollywood.

“You have to be the most realistic person, the one that makes your own toothpaste — that’s what it is now," the 17-year-old "Carrie" star said. "There’s no Vaseline on the lens anymore. We want the sharpest image, to see all your pimples! We want to see that you’re a messed-up human. We want to see you cheat and lie. And it’s kind of depressing because, instead of being actors, we’re now just entities, which isn’t our job.”
