Veteran celebs share pearls of wisdom

With all the craziness surrounding the paparazzi and public's obsession with celebrities, some stars this year passed along advice to young Hollywood. Among them:

"Continue doing your work. Always keep work first. Hype is second, and don't let that become part of your reality. Just stay real and do your job. … You have to remember that we're the luckiest people in the world to do what we do and get paid for it." —Jennifer Aniston, Harper's Bazaar, November 2007

"Fame will (mess) with your head, and if you don't have a solid foundation, you get swept away in it. … The kids now who are experiencing fame, money, paparazzi — they need to get their (butts) out of the night clubs and have a barbecue with … family once a week. It's not rocket science." —Dave Grohl, Maxim, January 2008

"If you're going to go out, there is a possibility and, depending on who you are, there is a probability that you'll have your picture taken. … If you don't feel up for that, don't go out. You did sign up for it, and you do have to understand that. If you're going to be out in public, you have to behave." —Lisa Kudrow, USA TODAY, Dec. 19, 2007

"I think we've all learned that you can't always make the right move. I look on it as work. … One of the biggest blessings in this business is to have something you find more interesting. It's a great thing when you can dissociate yourself." —Kate Hudson, Vogue, January 2008. (She credits her mother's partner, Kurt Russell, for the advice.)

"We try not to talk (in the media) about the relationship. It's not that we're not proud; it's just that's the kiss of death." —Sarah Jessica Parker, Elle, August 2007. (She adds that she and husband Matthew Broderick also try to avoid walking down a red carpet together.)
