Opening up about advice given to her from a good friend, Shailene Woodley went into an interview with The Daily Beast explaining why she turned down an audition for "Fifty Shades of Grey."

When asked whether or not she truly passed on the role as Anastasia Steele, the 22-year-old said, "It actually is true. I didn’t want to audition for it. It’s because I had already done 'Divergent' and I knew there was no way I wanted to do multiple franchises at the same time, because that’s crazy, so I didn’t see the point in it."

Explaining that she wrote a letter to "Hunger Games" starlet, Jennifer Lawrence as the spotlight brightened on her, Shailene said, "She was like, 'Small things will change, but if you stay who you are, nothing will change. The big picture won’t change. It’s only going to make your life greater and you’ll be so grateful for it. Don’t be stupid, don’t make a sex tape, don’t do drugs, don’t go to Whole Foods the day the movie opens, and you’ll be fine!'"

Of Lawrence, Shailene said, "I thought, 'I’m gonna love this chick when I meet her,"' adding, "It’s still not happened! I’ll meet her one of these days."

And of the way her life has indeed changed in recent years, the "Divergent" starlet stated, "There’s no privacy anymore! There are cameras everywhere, there’s technology everywhere, everything’s out in the Internet. It’s like '1984.' It’s a weird time to be alive. It’s a beautiful time to be alive, but it’s different from the past because technology is so advanced today, so there’s really no precedent when it comes to our privacy."

Finally, when asked if she is concerned about her privacy as she continues to gain fame, Shailene concluded, "Not really. The thing with privacy is, I’m just going to make sure that whatever I hold sacred stays sacred. What I hold dear to my heart is nobody’s business in the same way whatever you hold dear to your heart is nobody’s business, unless you’re willing to share that."
