But something you won't find on her IMDB repetoire is the portion of her Twitter that she dedicates to giving sage advice to those in need called "Hey Young Girls."  We narrowed down some of our favorite tweets of hers, which if you follow her you'll know is not a simply task. Here's a list of the delightful and heart-tugging pearls of wisdom Ms. Pell has bestowed upon the young girl in all of us:
