Early life

Foster was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Evelyn 'Brandy' Ella (born Almond) and Lucius Fisher Foster III. Her father, an Air Force colonel turned real estate broker, came from a wealthy background and left his wife before Jodie was born.[2] Foster's mother supported them by working as a film producer.[citation needed] 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. Los Angeles and L.A. redirect here. ...

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.[3] She later dubbed herself in the French-language version of several of her films.[4] She then attended Yale University at the same time as Jennifer Beals (Flashdance). 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 Foster, caused her to take a year-long leave of absence from Yale.[5] French (français, langue française) is one of the most important Romance languages, outnumbered in speakers only by Spanish and Portuguese. ...

Career

Child star

Foster made nearly fifty 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.[1] 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.[6] 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."[7] She hosted Saturday Night Live at age fourteen, 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."[8] Coppertone is the brand name for a suntan lotion, owned by Schering-Plough HealthCare Products Inc. ...

Foster was originally considered for the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars, but was unable to pull out of her contract with Disney.[9] 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"[citation needed] and "When I Looked at Your Face" b/w "La Vie C'est Chouette."[citation needed] The A-side of the former is sung in French, the A-side of the latter in English.

Reagan assassination attempt

John Hinckley Jr., a deranged fan, became obsessed with her after watching Taxi Driver a number of times,[10][11] 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.[citation needed] 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!"[12] 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.[13] In 1991, Foster cancelled an interview with NBC's Today Show when she was told Hinckley's name would be mentioned in her introduction.[14] Foster's only public reactions to this were a press conference afterwards and an article entitled "Why Me?", which she wrote for Esquire in December 1982.[15] In 1999, she discussed the experience with Charlie Rose of 60 Minutes II.[16] John Warnock Hinckley, Jr. ...

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,[17] The Hotel New Hampshire,[18] Five Corners,[19] and Stealing Home.[20] She had to audition for her role in The Accused.[citation needed] She won the part and the first of her two Golden Globes and Academy Awards as Best Actress for her role as a rape survivor. 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 acclaimed[21] 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.[8] 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.[8] 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.[8] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Foster played Laural Sommersby in Sommersby and Annabelle Bransford in the 1994 film Maverick. Sommersby co-star Richard Gere would comment that "She's very much a close-up actress, because her thoughts are clear."[22] 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."[23] In 1998, an asteroid, 17744 Jodiefoster, was named in her honor.[24] The 1993 motion picture Sommersby was directed by Jon Amiel and stars Richard Gere, Jodie Foster, Bill Pullman and James Earl Jones. ...

Foster returned in the 2005 film Flightplan which opened once again #1 at the U.S. box office and was a world wide hit. Foster portrayed a woman whose daughter disappears on an airplane that her character, an engineer, had helped to design.[25] Panic Room (2002) is a movie written by David Koepp, directed by David Fincher, and starring Jodie Foster, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, Dwight Yoakam, and Kristen Stewart. ...
