Apparently Jennifer Lawrence, benevolent goddess of all that is important in life, was the person who told Shailene Woodley to take the lead role in Divergent. So when the movie comes out later this month and is the greatest thing you've ever seen, please feel free to address all thank-you notes to J.Law.

In a new cover story in The Hollywood Reporter, Shailene said she had a few doubts about signing on for a multi-year, multi-movie franchise until she spoke with Jennifer via e-mail. "[She] said, 'You must do it. You will not regret it for a second,'" Shailene told the magazine. "'Yes, there are some hard things, but there are so many beautiful things that will come from an opportunity like this.'"

"Beautiful things" presumably meaning multiple Oscar nominations, an Oscar win, and an eternal contract with a very high-end fashion house?
