“If you could give advice to a celebrity, who would it be and what would you advise?”

Grandmother: Marie Morrow, 77, Millville, N.J.

Brad Pitt. Don’t mess with this family you have. It is the most precious thing you have. Money means nothing. Family is everything.”

Mother: Diane Lawson, 54, Gainesville, Va.

“Brad Pitt. Family comes first. The most important role you will ever have is that of father. Don’t screw it up.”

Granddaughter: Christine Bice, 36, Sterling

“Britney Spears. My advice to her is to take control of her life and remember that her boys come first above all else. Her most important job in life is the role she plays in the development of two human beings. She needs to remember how her actions will impact that role.

“Also, my advice to any underage celebrities in general is to hire professional managers and accountants instead of putting your parents in charge of everything. Everyone knows that family and money/business should be kept separate. That way your family is just there to give you moral/emotional support without any vested interest in their own retirement plans.”
