Shailene Woodley got some sage advice from someone who knows what it's like to be the face of a major movie franchise.
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, 21, got straight to the point when it came to helping guide Woodley, also 21, as excitement builds for her upcoming Divergent series.
Woodley, who calls the instruction "really beautiful advice," told Vanity Fair that Lawrence said simply, "[The experience] will be the best thing that ever happened. But don't be an idiot, do a sex tape [or] do drugs. And go to Whole Foods when your movie opens."

They survived the Hunger Games – but will they survive the Victory Tour?
Sporting bridal-like attire, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) pose for a promotional poster for the Victory Tour – which – in the Hunger Games universe – is when the victor of the annual Hunger Games tournament visits each of the fictional Panem's districts.
As true Hunger Games fans know, there is usually only one victor – but Katniss and Peeta rebelled against the Capitol in the first movie, originally opting for joint suicide instead of murder.

Peeta blazed the trail, and now it's catching fire.
Following in the footsteps of their Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks ditched the dystopian universe for some time with dolphins.
During three separate visits to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium last month, the actors, in town filming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, were treated to exclusive meet-and-greets with marine mammals.
On Oct. 14, Lawrence donned a wetsuit to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and zebra sharks at the Journey with Gentle Giants exhibit. While she was instructed not to touch the creatures, she swam the perimeter and got up close and personal with several whale sharks.

Don't expect Jennifer Lawrence to succumb to the pressures of Hollywood anytime soon.
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part ... I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner.' That's something I was really conscious of during training, when you're trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong – not thin and underfed," the actress, 22, tells December's Elle.
Despite being a relatively new face on the silver screen, the star of Silver Linings Playbook – which also stars Bradley Cooper and opens Nov. 21 – says her career brings her confidence.

May the menu be ever in your favor!
Seeking some Southern comfort food, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence stepped out at Watershed in Atlanta on Thursday.
The actress, who is in town filming Catching Fire, the next installment of the Hunger Games saga, joined the film's director Francis Lawrence and a few friends for a meal.
"Jennifer was super engaging, she spoke with other diners and even posed for a few pictures," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She seemed like she was having a blast."
Wearing an emerald green and black maxi dress, Lawrence shared appetizers with friends and ordered the restaurant's signature jambalaya for her main course.

The Hunger Games has found its Finnick Odair.
Sam Claflin, one of Hollywood's up-and-coming stars, has landed the coveted role in Catching Fire, the second Hunger Games movie, which begins shooting this fall for a late 2013 release.
Like Odair, Claflin, 26 – last seen in Snow White and the Huntsman – is a prodigy, seemingly skilled at anything and everything he tries.

Looks like Catching Fire is heating up: Philip Seymour Hoffman has just been cast as Plutarch Heavensbee in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's bestselling novel.
Heavensbee, who replaces Seneca Crane as the new Head Gamemaker in the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy, is a pretty complicated guy. After all, you never really know whether he's friend or foe until the very end of the book.
But complex roles are nothing new for the Oscar winner, 44, as shown by The Ides of March, Moneyball and Capote (for which he was named Best Actor).

Add Jennifer Lawrence to the list of celebrity heroes.
The Hunger Games star, who fought for her own life as Katniss Everdeen in the series, helped save someone else who was in danger on Monday, reports X17 Online.
Lawrence, 21, was walking her dog near her Santa Monica, Calif., apartment when she found a young girl collapsed in front of her building. As she went to assist the person, someone else called 911.
The girl wasn't transported to the hospital, but instead cleared on the scene.
