Alicia Christian "Jodie" Foster (born November 19, 1962) is a two-time Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-award winning American actress, director and producer.

Although Foster's first acting appearance was at three years old, her first significant role came in 1976 as an underage prostitute in "Taxi Driver", for which she received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1988 for playing a rape survivor in "The Accused". In 1991, she starred in "The Silence of the Lambs" as Clarice Starling, a gifted FBI trainee, assisting in a hunt for a serial killer. This performance received international acclaim and her second Oscar for Best Actress. Her films and roles have spanned a wide variety of genres, including thrillers, crime, romance, comedy, children's films and science fiction. Popular later films include the box office successes "Contact" (1997), "Panic Room" (2002), "Flightplan" (2005), "Inside Man" (2006) and "The Brave One" (2007).

Early life

Foster was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of GermanFact|date=September 2008 Evelyn 'Brandy' Ella (née Almond) and Lucius Fisher Foster III. Her father, an Air Force Lieutenant-Colonel (being a veteran of the Battle of Britain and a highly decorated soldier) turned real estate broker, came from a wealthy background and left his wife before Jodie was born.

[http://www.geocities.com/jodiefosterph/us050800.html "What It Means To Be Jodie Foster"] - Us Weekly (c/o Agent Starling's Geocities page) - May 8, 2000] Foster's mother supported them by working as a film producer. [ [http://www.thebiographychannel.co.uk/biography_home/862:1203/Jodie_Foster.htm The Biography Channel - Jodie Foster Biography ] ] After appearing as a child in several commercials, Foster made her first credited TV appearance on "The Doris Day Show". Her first film role was in the 1970 television movie "Menace on the Mountain", which was followed by several Disney productions.

Foster attended a French-speaking prep school, the Lycée Français de Los Angeles, and graduated in 1980 as the valedictorian. As a teenager, Foster frequently stayed and worked in France, and still speaks the language, [ [http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2wrzi_jodie-foster-la-rencontre-pt-1_shortfilms Video Jodie Foster La Rencontre pt 1 - Jodie, Foster, Laurent, Weil, Rencontre - Dailymotion Share Your Videos ] ] dubbing herself in French-language versions of most of her films. [ [http://www.studiomagazine.fr/film/autour_zoom.asp?id=23445&ida=185916 Jodie Foster: "Hollywood fait confiance à mes choix" - StudioMagazine.fr ] ] She then attended Yale University. Foster earned a B.A. in literature and graduated "magna cum laude" in 1985. She was scheduled to graduate in 1984 but the shooting of then-President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr., in which Hinckley's fascination with Foster created unwanted adverse publicity for her, caused her to take a year-long leave of absence from Yale.citation |title=Commencement 1997 |periodical=Yale Bulletin and Calendar |url=http://www.yale.edu/opa/ybc/v25.n33.comm.05.html |date=June 2, 1997 |accessdate = 2007-12-14 ] She is fluent in French and German.

Career

Child star

Foster made nearly 50 film and television appearances before she attended college. She began her career at age three as the Coppertone Girl in a television commercial and debuted as a television actress in a 1968 episode of "Mayberry R.F.D." [http://www.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=2:90220~T1 All Movie Guide - Jodie Foster Biography] by Hal Erickson. Retrieved April 17, 2007] In 1969, she appeared in an episode of "Gunsmoke", where she was credited as "Jody Foster". Although not a regular on "The Courtship of Eddie's Father", she appeared from time to time as Eddie's friend Joey Kelly. [Brooks, Tim and Marsh, Earle (1992) "The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network TV Shows 1946 to Present", 5th Edition. New York: Valentine Books. ISBN0-345-37792-3.] She made her film debut in the 1970 TV movie "Menace on the Mountain". Foster made a number of Disney movies, including "Napoleon and Samantha" (1972), "One Little Indian" (1973), "Freaky Friday" (1976), and "Candleshoe" (1977). She also co-starred with Christopher Connelly in the 1974 TV series version of "Paper Moon" and alongside Martin Sheen in the 1976 cult film "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane". As a teenager, Foster made several appearances on the French pop music circuit as a singer. Commenting on her years as a child actress, which she describes as an "actor's career", Foster has said that "it was very clear to me at a young age that I had to fight for my life and that if I didn't, my life would get gobbled up and taken away from me."cite web | title=The StarPhoenix | work=A class act: Jodie Foster riding high with Flightplan and Inside Man | url=http://www.canada.com/saskatoonstarphoenix/news/story.html?id=d0c7154f-bd14-498a-bd45-6e8bf9d2e1e0&k=3533 | accessdate = 2006-03-31] She hosted "Saturday Night Live" at age 14, making her the youngest person to host at that time until Drew Barrymore hosted at the age of seven. She also said,

"I think all of us when we look back on our childhood, we always think of it as somebody else. It's just a completely different place. But I was lucky to be around in the '70s and to really be making movies in the '70s with some great filmmakers — the most exciting time, for me, in American Cinema. I learned a lot from some very interesting artists -- and I learned a lot about the business at a young age, because, for whatever reason, I was paying attention; so it was kind of invaluable in my career.""Jodie Foster on Panic Room". J. Sperling Reich. Reel.com 2002 March. Retrieved April 20, 2007.]

Foster was originally considered for the role of Princess Leia in "", but was unable to pull out of her contract with Disney. [ [http://www.notstarring.com/movies/star-wars Not Starring - Star Wars] Retrieved March 31, 2007.] She made her debut (and only official) musical recordings in France in 1977: two 7" singles, "Je T'attends Depuis la Nuit des Temps" b/w "La Vie C'est Chouette" [ [http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/jodie_foster/biography.php Jodie Foster - Rotten Tomatoes Celebrity Profile ] ] and "When I Looked at Your Face" b/w "La Vie C'est Chouette."

The B-side of both is mostly spoken word and is performed in both French and English. These three recordings were included on the soundtrack to Foster's 1977 French film "Moi, fleur bleue".

At age 14, Foster was nominated for the Academy Award For Best Supporting Actress for her role as Iris, an underage prostitute in Martin Scorsese's film "Taxi Driver" opposite Robert De Niro. Foster received two BAFTA awards in 1976: Best Newcomer and Best Supporting Actress for her performances in "Bugsy Malone" and "Taxi Driver".

Reagan assassination attempt

John Hinckley Jr., a deranged fan, became obsessed with her after watching "Taxi Driver" a number of times, [ [http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/hinckley/taxidriver.htm Taxi Driver: Its Influence on John Hinckley, Jr.] UMKC Law School.

Retrieved April 17, 2007.] and he stalked her while she attended Yale, sending her love letters to her campus mail box and even talking to her on the phone. On March 30, 1981, he attempted to assassinate U.S. President Ronald Reagan, (shooting and wounding Reagan and three others) and claimed his motive was to impress Foster, then a Yale freshman. The media stormed the Yale campus in April "like a cavalry invasion", and followed Foster relentlessly. [Karen S. Schneider; [http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20124794,00.html Foster Mom] ; People Magazine; March 23, 1998; Vol. 49 No. 11] In 1982, Foster was called to testify during his trial. After she responded to a question by saying that "I don't have any relationship with John Hinckley," Hinckley threw a pen at her and yelled "I'll get you, Foster!" [ [http://www.crimelibrary.com/terrorists_spies/assassins/john_hinckley/7.html "I'll Get You, Foster!"] by Denise Noe. Crime Library. Courtroom Television Network, LLC. Retrieved March 31, 2007.] Hinckley's obsession inspired a punk rock band to name themselves Jodie Foster's Army.

Another man, Edward Richardson, followed Foster around Yale and planned to shoot her, but decided against it because she "was too pretty". This all caused intense discomfort to Foster, who has been known to walk out of interviews if Hinckley's name is even mentioned. [ [http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/hinckley/JODIE.HTM Jodie Foster] UMKC Law - Jodie Foster, Retrieved March 10, 2007.] In 1991, Foster cancelled an interview with NBC's "Today Show" when she was told Hinckley's name would be mentioned in her introduction.

Adult career

Unlike other child stars such as Shirley Temple or Tatum O'Neal, Foster successfully made the transition to adult roles, but not without initial difficulty. Several of her post-"Taxi Driver" works were financially unsuccessful, such as "Foxes", [ [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=foxes.htm Box Office Mojo - Foxes] Retrieved April 17, 2007.] "The Hotel New Hampshire", [ [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=thehotelnewhampshire.htm Box Office Mojo - The Hotel New Hampshire] Retrieved April 17, 2007.] "Five Corners", [ [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=fivecorners.htm Box Office Mojo - Five Corners] Retrieved April 17, 2007.] and "Stealing Home".

She earned her second as FBI agent Clarice Starling, opposite Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, in the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs".She made her directorial debut in 1991 with "Little Man Tate", a critically acclaimedcite web | title=Rotten Tomatoes | url=http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/little_man_tate/] drama about a child prodigy, in which she also co-starred as the child's mother. She also directed "Home for the Holidays" (1995), a black comedy starring Holly Hunter and Robert Downey Jr. In 1992, Foster founded a production company called Egg Pictures in Los Angeles. It primarily produced independent films until it was closed in 2001. Foster said that she did not have the ambition to produce "big mainstream popcorn" movies, and as a child, independent films made her more interested in the movie business than mainstream ones. She began working as a producer in 1994 with the acclaimed "Nell", the story of a young woman raised in an isolated place who has to return to civilization. She later commented that it was difficult being an actress and a producer for "Nell".

Foster played Laurel Sommersby in "Sommersby" and Annabelle Bransford in the 1994 film "Maverick".

Retrieved April 20, 2007.] In 1997, she starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in the sci-fi movie "Contact", based on the novel by scientist Carl Sagan. She portrayed a scientist searching for extraterrestrial life in the SETI project. She commented on the script that "I have to have some acute personal connection with the material. And that's pretty hard for me to find." "Contact" was also her first science fiction film, and her first experience with a bluescreen. She commented,

"Blue walls, blue roof. It was just blue, blue, blue. And I was rotated on a lazy Susan with the camera moving on a computerized arm. It was really tough."

In 2002, Foster took over the lead role in David Fincher's "Panic Room" after Nicole Kidman was injured during initial filming. The film grossed over 30 million dollars in its opening weekend in the United States, Foster's biggest box office opening success of her career so far. She then performed in the French-language film "Un long dimanche de fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement)" (2004), speaking French fluently throughout. Foster returned in the 2005 film "Flightplan" which opened once again #1 at the U.S. box office and was a worldwide hit. Foster portrayed a woman whose daughter disappears on an airplane that her character, an engineer, had helped to design.

In 2008, she starred in "The Brave One" directed by Neil Jordan and co-starring Terrence Howard, another urban thriller that opened at #1 at the U.S. box office [ [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=2386&p=.htm 'Brave One' Leads Slow Weekend] Boxofficemojo.com September 17, 2007.] Foster's performance in the film would earn her a sixth Golden Globe acting nomination. Commenting on her latest roles, Foster has said that she enjoys appearing in mainstream genre films that have a "real heart to them".cite web | publisher=UPI | title=Foster, Howard to star in Neil Jordan film | url=http://www.upi.com/NewsTrack/view.php?StoryID=20060327-104543-8602r | accessdate = 2006-03-27] Indeed, many of her most successful films in recent years have been thrillers.

Current projects

Foster was set to direct, as well as reunite with actor Robert De Niro, for the film "Sugarland". The film was shelved indefinitely in 2007, however. In 2008, Foster starred in "Nim's Island", portraying a reclusive writer who is contacted by a young girl after her father goes missing at sea. The part of Nim is played by Abigail Breslin. "Nim's Island" is the first comedy that Foster has starred in since "Maverick" in 1994. Foster is currently developing a biopic of Leni Riefenstahl.

Personal life

Foster says she has only met her father three times in her entire life and that their meetings have been very awkward. She has two older sisters, Lucinda "Cindy" Foster (b. 1954), Constance "Connie" Foster (b. 1955), and one older brother, Lucius "Buddy" Foster (b. 1957). During the filming of both "Taxi Driver" and "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane", Connie was her stand-in. Buddy Foster had his own career for several years appearing in regular spots on television shows such as "Hondo" and "Mayberry, R.F.D." Foster and her brother have been estranged for many years. In 1997, he wrote a book entitled "Foster Child" in which stated "I have always assumed Jodie was gay or bisexual." [ [findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1589/is_n734/ai_19715194] Foster Child: A Biography of Jodie Foster. - book reviews] In the book, he writes that she was conceived in her father's office three years after their parents divorced when their mother went to him for child support. He also claims that her name was changed from "Alicia" to "Jodie" because it was a code "Jo D" for their mother's lesbian lover, Josephina Dominguez. Jodie Foster called the book

"A cheap cry for attention and money filled with hazy recollections, fantasies and borrowed press releases. Buddy has done nothing but break our mother's heart his whole life."

Foster is intensely private about certain aspects of her personal life, notably her sexual orientation, which has been the subject of speculation.

For years, Russell Crowe accompanied her to premieres and award ceremonies, but they never commented on the rumor that they were romantically involved.

Foster has two sons: Charles Foster (b. July 20, 1998) and Christopher "Kit" Foster (b. September 29, 2001).
