Jodie Foster’s thoughts about the media
Jodie Foster saw all the fire Kristen Stewart has been under for cheating on Robert Pattinson, and decided to speak up on her behalf.
Foster starred in Panic Room with the 22-year-old actress in 2002, and took a stand against the flying judgments from the public in her The Daily Beast article.
Jodie Foster highlighted the options for a young, famous actor, and what she would do if she were a young, famous actress today. Jodie Foster, plain and simple, said she would leave the industry, or at least re-evaluate her career before immersing herself in what she believes to be an inevitable mass of “drugs, sex and parties.”
As someone who has survived the Hollywood industry for 46 out of her 49 years of life without excessive media attention or judgment, Jodie Foster wrote about a tool she wished someone like Kristen Stewart had.
Foster wrote, “I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.”
Jodie Foster wrote of a technique to avoid such judgment, but does not actually know how she did it.
Foster lamented about what would become of the stories writers put great amounts of thought into without sacrificing their actors into the limelight. Jodie Foster said the media “lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams,” referring to stars like Kristen Stewart whose name has graced the cash registers of almost every grocery store.
She continued, “Clarice would never have shared the awful screaming of the lambs to Dr. Lecter.”
