Shailene Woodley - Shailene Woodley Asked Jennifer Lawrence For Franchise Advice

Actress Shailene Woodley turned to The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence for advice on tackling a big-budget franchise before signing up to front Divergent.

The upcoming film adaptation of the first installment in author Veronica Roth's adventure trilogy has been tapped as the next huge Hollywood sensation, but Woodley admits she had her reservations about leaving her low-key life behind and attaching herself to a blockbuster series - so she decided to ask the Oscar winner for a little career guidance.

During a panel for the film at San Diego, California's Comic-Con on Thursday (18Jul13), she said, "I've never met Jen, but we have some mutual friends and I communicated with her before I signed on for Divergent. I asked her about her experience on Hunger Games and if that was something she would recommend for me, because she is such an incredible actress to go from being an Oscar-nominated human being for Winter's Bone and then taking on such a huge young adult franchise.

"She had nothing but positive things to say, and because of her and a few other people I love and respect, I came to the conclusion that I had to say yes."
