Although she is only 50, Foster has been in the business for 47 years. She has been one of the few child actors who has made the successful transition into adulthood and an amazing career.
Receiving this award does not mean this is the end of her career, there is still much more of Jodie Foster to come both in acting and directing!
Her friend Robert Downey Jrn gave a fun introduction to Jodie but Jodie’s speech stole the show (rightly so).
Jodie’s speech was one of the great ones I have seen. She spoke from the heart and wasn’t preachy but raised some very good/important points – privacy being one of them.
It really is time that we as a society shift our focus. Remember privacy. That’s important! In this modern world of reality TV and celebrity we seem to have forgotten all about it. We seem to think that just because someone has chosen their career to be show biz we own them.
We don’t own them. Everyone has a right to privacy and peace and love.
Watch Jodie’s fabulous speech. Show your sons, your daughters, this is what we should aspire to – greatness, not fame!
