Olivia Wilde is taking tips on how to negotiate Hollywood from an Oscar-winning mentor - actress Julie Christie.
Christie, a family friend, has taken the House actress under her wing and is helping her cope with the pressures and strains of a life in the spotlight.
Like Wilde, Christie juggled modelling and acting careers - and the young star credits her mentor with helping her keep her feet on the ground as her career takes off.
She tells GQ magazine, "She (Christie) said that it's all temporary. She got certain opportunities because she was a beauty, a fashion icon, and she was very grateful, very flattered."
