Foster at the [[36th César Awards|2011 César Awards]] Alicia Christian "Jodie" Foster (born November 19, 1962) is an American actress, director, and producer. She has received two Academy Awards, three British Academy Film Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and the Cecil B DeMille Award. For her work as a director, she has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.

A child prodigy, Foster began her professional career as a child model when she was three years old, and she made her acting debut in 1968 in the television sitcom ''Mayberry R.F.D.'' In the late 1960s and early 1970s, she worked in several television series and made her film debut with Disney's ''Napoleon and Samantha'' (1972). Following appearances in the musical ''Tom Sawyer'' (1973) and Martin Scorsese's comedy-drama ''Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore'' (1974), Foster's breakthrough came with Scorsese's psychological thriller ''Taxi Driver'' (1976), in which she played a child prostitute; at age 14, she received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her other roles as a teenager include the musical ''Bugsy Malone'' (1976) and the thriller ''The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane'' (1976), and she became a popular teen idol by starring in Disney's ''Freaky Friday'' (1976) and ''Candleshoe'' (1977), as well as ''Carny'' (1980) and ''Foxes'' (1980).

After attending college at Yale, Foster struggled to transition into adult roles until she gained critical acclaim for playing a rape survivor in the legal drama ''The Accused'' (1988), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. She won her second Academy Award three years later for the psychological horror ''The Silence of the Lambs'' (1991), in which she portrayed Clarice Starling. Foster made her debut as a film director the same year with ''Little Man Tate'', and founded her own production company, Egg Pictures, in 1992. The company's first production was ''Nell'' (1994), in which she also played the title role, garnering her fourth nomination for an Academy Award. Her other successful films in the 1990s were the romantic drama ''Sommersby'', western comedy ''Maverick'' (1994), science fiction ''Contact'' (1997), and period drama ''Anna and the King'' (1999).

Foster experienced career setbacks in the early 2000s, including the cancellation of a film project and the closing down of her production company, but she then starred in four commercially successful thrillers: ''Panic Room'' (2002), ''Flightplan'' (2005), ''Inside Man'' (2006), and ''The Brave One'' (2007). She has focused on directing in the 2010s, directing the films ''The Beaver'' (2011) and ''Money Monster'' (2016), as well as episodes for Netflix television series ''Orange Is the New Black'', ''House of Cards'', and ''Black Mirror''. She also starred in the films ''Carnage'' (2011), ''Elysium'' (2013), and ''Hotel Artemis'' (2018). Provided by Wikipedia
