Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster, American actress, was born Alicia Christian Foster on November 19, 1962 in Los Angeles, California. Her father had left the family before her birth, leaving Alicia and her three siblings to be raised by their mother, Evelyn Foster, a Hollywood publicist. Her mother was able to find on-screen work for any of the children interested in it, and so Jodie made her first appearance on screen at age three in a Coppertone sunscreen commercial. Jodie later achieved bit parts in many popular television shows before beginning a movie career at age ten in Walt Disney's Napoleon and Samantha. She found time for an Honors degree in English Literature from Yale University, then resumed her acting career, taking on directorial duties in movies such as Nell and Little Man Tate. Fluent in French, she uses her own voice in French translations of her own films. When she was still young, Jodie was a standout of great maturity in the movie, "Bugsy Malone", as Tallulah, a part that would later be reproduced to excellence on stage by Catherine Zeta Jones.

Jodie acquired her nickname from a family friend, Josephine D, shortened to Jodie. Her most famous role was as a teenage prostitute in the 1976 film, "Taxi Driver." The film became a classic, winning Jodie an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress while she was still only 14. Ultimately the film became an obsession for a crazed fan who wrote her many letters and later attempted to assasinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981. A second stalker, enamored by Jodie, has inspired her to since retire from the public spotlight and remain one of the more private celebrities. 1988 gave her a role in "The Accused," a film that achieved her a Golder Globe, a National Board of Review Award, and an Oscar for Best Actress. She then went on for her next Oscar-winning performance in the classic terror flick, "Silence of the Lambs" (1991). She won her second Best Actress Oscar, both before the age of 30, the first time ever for Hollywood actresses. Jodie has given birth to two sons since 1998 and raised them as a single mother, keeping the identity of the father or fathers a secret. She continues to carefully choose her cinematic roles, always for character rather than monetary reasons, and remains as elusive as a modern day Greta Garbo.
