Skip to comments.How Jodie Foster stays one of the most ‘real’ stars in Hollywood [Wash Post pushes Lesbianism]

Jodie Foster is on point. Mere minutes into conversation and shes talking politics, specifically as they pertain to Money Monster, a timely thriller shes directed. Its impossible to watch Money Monster, which stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts and opens May 13, and not be reminded of the indeterminate rage of the Trump phenomenon.
Shes eager to talk about Money Monster, in which Clooney plays Lee Gates, the swaggering, superficial star of a cable financial show whos taken hostage by a young man, played by Jack OConnell, whose savings have been wiped out by one of Gatess stock tips. Foster says. Its really about men . . . who have a poor opinion of themselves and are looking for value, looking for meaning Lee, the performer whos caught up in his own persona, doesnt know who he is and is completely lost and self-absorbed.
Now 53, she hasnt visibly aged in half a decade, her hair showing just a few strands of gray and her face betraying no signs of Hollywood-mandated work.. Famously private, Foster is nonetheless direct and surprisingly forthcoming about even the most intimate subjects.
The adjectives that leap to mind to describe Jodie Foster genuine, down-to-earth, authentic, real would be unremarkable were it not for how fiercely shes fought to establish and protect those qualities I kept choosing a meaningful life.
Im sure it takes a toll to be Obama and to say, God bless America 450,000 times, to the point where by the end of it youre like: Do I really bless America? I dont know! Am I fake? Am I real?
Foster grappled with that same ambivalence three years ago, when she accepted a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes. The speech was equal parts candid and cryptic, and breathtakingly emotional. Most movingly, Foster paid homage to the ex-partner with whom she had brought up two young sons. Although Foster had long since come out as a lesbian within her immediate circle, it was the first time she acknowledged that part of her identity so publicly.
Not long after, Foster married the photographer Alexandra Hedison, who will walk the red carpet alongside her at Cannes. As for her sons, now teenagers, theyll be at home. Unlike many of her colleagues, Foster rarely brought her children to her movie sets, or glittery parties and premieres. I didnt want them to know me that way when they were young, she explains. I didnt want them to have an idea of me as anything but their mom.
Foster admits that Money Monster and her work for Netflix represent a new level of engagement with the outside world and its issues. Im more interested in relevant topics, she says. But Fosters form of activism will never extend past the screen. Im grateful for the spokesmen who are out there, because theyve helped change the world and change my life, she says, and its really important and necessary for history and for change.
I thought Contact totally sucked.
Just what does it take to impress her?
Maybe she was influenced by playing a barely teenaged prostitute in "Taxi-Driver?" Who knows? Who cares?
What has this to do with Trump?
Both the book and the movie.
It’s printed in the WaPo. Every article they print must bash or belittle Trump, it’s some kind of rule they have...
Everytime I see a trailer for the anti-capitalism movie Money Monster I think about Clooney’s $300K a plate dinner for Hillary. Do they even know how ridiculous they are?
I’ve never seen a Jodie Foster movie I liked. “Silence of the Lambs” was okay, and so was “Taxi Driver,” but neither of them because of Jodie Foster. When she came out as a pervert, it just game me one more reason to not like her. But I already had plenty.
You gotta wonder what those Hollywood sleazoids did to her when she was young.
She’s an actress who makes movies. For me, her sexuality and intellect, or lack thereof, is of less than no interest. If I take an interest in the minutiae of someone’s life, it would be someone who had actual accomplishments. There are real people who do real things in the world-why are people so obsessed with zeroes who have done nothing?
If you thought she was cr*ppy in that movie, you should see Elysium with her and Matt Damon. I can’t believe the awful stuff that comes out of the sodomite-controlled Hollywood today trying to normalize their pagan, immoral lifestyles. (Just ask Corey Feldman about all the pedophilia and drugging of all the children in Hollywood).
I am sure Jodie Foster was one of the warped, abuse children. Most were unless they were like Shirley Temple and had a mother who stuck to them like glue.
She is totally warped and hates not only God, but the design of herself-—her own body. Nihilism on steroids. She knows more than God and actually believes she is god and “love” is doing dehumanizing, irrational, vile acts on others-—like she learned by being abused as a child.
All behavior is learned and habituated. She was warped and destroyed in childhood and has never overcome the evil abuse so she is trying to normalize the male-hating Marxist ideology.
Why should I care that she prefers women? Why do gays parade around like it is important?
She is a horrible actress. Way overrated.
I respect Foster. She keeps to herself, does QUALITY work, and isn’t militant about her sexuality.
She worked with Mel Gibson when most of Hollywood was shunning him....if you haven’t seen the film “The Beaver”, you should.
Her heart needs to be changed, and her lifestyle isn’t pleasing to God. I pray she awakens to that reality, but I cannot hold a grudge against a woman who does her job well and lives quietly.
An attempt on Ronald Reagan’s life did not seem to impress Jodie Foster all that much.
John Hinckley has not yet heard back from her. Man, that is a long time to wait for a response. Give it up, John.
Well, have you started carrying around your copy of Catcher in the Rye yet?
That’s a good start.
