Community’s Yvette Nicole Brown Gives Her Advice to Actors

Community star Yvette Nicole Brown attended the Next Gen 2011 event, hosted by Sherlock Homes star Robert Downey Jr., that was recently held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.  While walking the carpet, Brown had a few words of advice when it came to aspiring actors in the business.

“Save your money, be good to people on set, be professional,” she said. “I always heard, my mom said, when I was growing up, ‘How you start is how you finish,’ so if you start with integrity and character and as a responsible human being, you’ll end that same way.  Take care of each other in this industry, that’s the best advice I have.”

The Next Gen event also featured an amazing list of experienced actors, Jennifer Garner, Jodie Foster, Chris Pine, Nick Offerman and Josh Brolin, all there to read Reel Stories, Real Lives, a collection of stories from members of the industry and their loved ones.  Also in attendance, making up the thirty-five years and younger guest list, was Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Olsen.
