Jodie Foster is an actress, director and producer, born on November 19, 1962 in Los Angeles, California. She began acting in commercials at a very early age, and became famous at the age of 13 in the film Taxi Driver, with the controversial character of preteen prostitute, Iris.  Thanks to this role, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards. She didn’t win then, but she won for Best Actress (1989), for her role in The Accused.

When she starred in The Silence of the Lambs, she received international acclaim and got her second Best Actress award at the Academy. The role of FBI trainee Clarice Starling got her her first blockbuster hit, grossing about $273 million in theaters. After having received her 4th Academy Award nomination for playing Nell (1994), and starring in critically acclaimed movies, like Contact (1997), this actress made her directorial debut with the movie Little Man Tate, which is about a young gifted boy who can’t make sense of the world (1991). She has also directed films like Home for the Holidays (1995). In addition to her 2 first Academy Awards, she has won 3 BAFTAs, 3 Golden Globes, the Cecil B DeMilles, and 1 Screen Actors Guild. And, did you know that Foster also started a music career in France in 1977? She can definitely sing in English and in French!

After her directorial debut (with Little Man Tate), Jodie started her own production company called Egg Pictures (in L.A.), which primarily produced independent films for other companies to distribute. However, she didn’t envisioned producing the blockbuster hits that characterizes the hollywood industry. "Big mainstream popcorn" had made her more interested in the indie (or independent) movie business. But, despite her great intentions, the company closed down in 2001. But the good news is, she’s still as successful as ever, doing new projects and enjoying her net worth of $100 million.
