Two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster knows what it takes to make it as a young actress in Hollywood. Luckily for Twilight star Kristen Stewart, the elder actress is there for her with valuable words of wisdom.
So what advice does Foster, 47, have for Stewart? "Just about how to not go crazy," Foster, who costarred with Stewart in 2002’s Panic Room, told PEOPLE at the New York Women in Film & Television’s Designing Women Awards last week. "And [how to] be a young actor who wants to have a long career."

Hey Kathryn Bigelow, you hear those loud fans? One of them is none other than Jodie Foster.
Supporting what could be the first female win for the Best Director Oscar is especially easy for fellow director Foster, who hopes it will mean "more opportunities for women to direct."
"Am I going to be chanting, 'Kathryn Bigelow, Kathryn Bigelow, Kathryn Bigelow?' " Foster told PEOPLE of cheering the Hurt Locker director at the 25th Film Independent Spirit Awards Friday. "Listen, it's a great honor for any director: Male, female, carnivore, vegetarian. But I was thrilled to see a film of that caliber with such a strong hand as a director."
Added Foster: "This is clearly something that she's worked her entire life for."

Three years after playing a protective mother in Panic Room, Jodie Foster lets her maternal instincts take control again as a woman whose daughter disappears in Flightplan. "There's a primal connection to children," says Foster, 42, who is mom to sons Charlie, 7, and Kit, 4. "You have to explore those fears. That's what makes the best drama." The former child star talked recently about being a parent, sharing the acting gene and finding the next Jodie Foster.
