The Golden Globes are now over. The most passionate and dramatic speech was given by Jodie Foster upon receiving her Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award last night. RadarOnline.com posted that Tweeter is a buzz with her “coming out.”
Huffington Post quotes, "I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the Stone Age. In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends, and family, coworkers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her."
The Cecile B Demille award was presented as recognition to a lifetime of cinematic achievement. Jodie Foster started out in commercials when she was just three-years-old. She is a very talented actress and the second youngest female actress to receive the award. The Telegraph wrote that Judy Garland was the youngest female recipient. She was 39-years-old at the time. Walt Disney, Martin Scorsese, and Alfred Hitchcock were also recipients of this coveted award.
Jodie Foster is a female icon. Her work includes many inspirational and human condition films. She was a pre-teen prostitute in “Taxi Driver.” She played a woman who was viciously attacked by thugs in Central Park in the movie, “Brave One.” She played a teenage runaway in “Carny.” In “The Accused” she played a woman who was brutally raped in a bar. This movie performance won her an academy award.
She received another best actress award in “Silence of the Lamb” where she played a gifted and courageous FBI agent trainee. The Telegraph wrote, “A proud feminist, her acceptance speech dedicated the award to “all of the women who came before me who never had the chances that I’ve had, and the survivors and the pioneers and the outcasts.”
These are but a few of her stellar roles and performances. Jodie Foster has many acting roles under her belt. Not only can this very talented actress work in English, because of her foreign language skills, she can work in French as well. Wikipedia writes, “Due to her French fluency, Foster has dubbed herself in French-language versions of most of her films. In 2004, she took a minor role in the French WWI film “A Very Long Engagement.” She also understands German and Spanish and can converse in Italian.”
