Having discovered her path early in life, Jodie Foster was a child prodigy who forged an enduring legacy by playing a series of idiosyncratic characters that mirror her remarkable intellect and inimitable talent. Today, her work continues to be as spellbinding as it is thought-provoking. The embodiment of someone who was “born to do it,” Foster rose to fame while most kids her age were struggling to make it through middle school. In a career spanning nearly six decades, she has won more awards for her performances than can easily be counted. Yet this notoriously private star shuns the limelight and rarely discusses her personal life, arousing untold interest in her legions of fans.
