Hollywood superstar Jodie Foster has been one of the biggest stars in the acting industry for decades now, so it is surprising that it has taken so long for the actress to get her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Now though, that has been rectified and fellow actress Kristen Stewart, who starred with Jodie in the movie Panic Room back in 2002, has spoken out to heap praise on her former co-star.
Kristen claims that Jodie is one of the first stars that she was ever really drawn to and was delighted to get to work with her on Panic Room. Also, much like the rest of us, the actress stated that she too was shocked that it has actually taken this long for Foster to get her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Stewart explained, "I watched Taxi Driver when I was far too young to watch it. And I was already saying Jodie Foster was my favourite actress before I was cast as her daughter. Technically she was cast as my mum. She came onto the movie late and I was there to show her the ropes. There's nothing self-serving about her."
She added, "She cares about people. She's quite the opposite of the type of person that is gravitated towards being an actress. I was drawn to her before I met her, and trust me, she's way cooler than me. She did everything young. She kicked Yale (University)'s a**. She won Oscars. She became a filmmaker herself. She should have had a star on the Walk of Fame when she was 10."
With all that said, it is believed that they have wanted to get Jodie Foster her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for quite some time now but the timing has never quite been right.
