Everyone thinks Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley are great friends, despite being two of the hottest young stars around boasting a YA blockbuster franchise. Everyone was enamored with the story of Jennifer Lawrence giving young Shailene Woodley career advice and being one of the main reasons why Shailene agreed to accept the Divergent project. However, Celebrity Dirty Laundry is now reporting that Jennifer Lawrence is angry at Shailene for usurping her spotlight.

Citing In Touch magazine, the notorious gossip site claimed that Jennifer Lawrence felt weird seeing Shailene also auditioning for all the same roles as her. Jennifer felt even more agitated when Shailene also sported a pixie cut just like she did. According to In Touch magazine, Jennifer Lawrence gave Shailene great advice a few years back, but this turned Shailene into an actress overly determined to be on the top, which bothers Jennifer Lawrence.

"A few years ago, Jennifer gave her career advice, and ever since then, Shailene's been obsessed," says the source.

It can be remembered that Shailene once shared to Teen Vogue how Jennifer Lawrence helped her decide on the Divergent project being offered to her: 

"I said no to the role at first, and everybody was shocked. I asked Jennifer Lawrence, 'Are you happy with your choice to take on 'The Hunger Games?' And she said she wouldn't change it for the world. She told me, 'There are some things - don't make a sex tape, don't do drugs, don't do things in public - that you wouldn't want other people judging you for. But this is the best decision you'll ever make."

Shailene Woodley is often pitted against Jennifer Lawrence because of the sameness in their career path. Jennifer Lawrence launched "The Hunger Games" franchise two years ago, transforming from a just cute face to someone everyone knows and rooting for in such a short span of time. Woodley launched "Divergent" just months ago and transformed accordingly. Both of them have several acting roles before their rise to fame, but nothing changed them more than participating in their respective YA franchise. After their roles, Jennifer Lawrence proceeded to won many awards, and her films outside the franchise were all successful. Shailene Woodley's upcoming movie "The Fault in Our Stars" is highly anticipated.

However, the reason why Shailene Woodley decided to cut her long tresses to sport a pixie cut may not be what Jennifer is alledgely thinking. Shailene is not thinking of copying anyone when she did it. According to In Style magazine, Shailene did it for a noble cause. She donated her hair to the oganization, "Children with Hair Loss", which creates wigs for children needing to. She also did not stop at donating her strands. She also partnered with the group to start a Hair for Hazel Campaign, which urges young women to donate their strands. Thousand of girls have since then followed suit.

For Woodley, her cropped 'do helped her more than it helped the kids she donated it to.

"When I finally realized I have to live life for myself and not for anyone else is when I started being more generous and kind and grateful. I was able to give back more," she says. "Doing the right thing always makes you feel good, and it's contagious."
