We guess she wants to focus on directing from now on!

Jodie Foster, who just finished up taking the directorial reigns on the upcoming Mel Gibson drama, The Beaver, has revealed that she wants to give up acting for good, and has even signed on to direct a new science fiction film!

She explains:

"I've reached that point where I don't want to act very much anymore. I am much more interested in holding off on acting, after 45 years as an actor. It's a long period of time to do the same thing. [Her new science fiction project] There's a family element to it, but it's much more a genre movie. I'd like to do that because that's a world I live in as an actor but I've never really gone to as a director. It's not anywhere close to being ready. [I don't write], so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me."

Well, seeing as she's set to appear in the film Elysium, we're relieved to know she's not giving up acting all-together, but think it's great that she's continuing to expand beyond her comfort zone and direct a genre piece!

Keep up the good work, gurl! We're excited to see your career progress down this path!

    Awh whatever, go gush about Mel Gibson some more ya creep.

    YAAAWN, WHATEVER… THEY ALL SAY THAT. THEN WHEN A FEW FLICKS FAIL OR LACK OF PROJECTS THEY GO BACK TO ACTING. SAME SHIT, DIFFERENT CAST. EXCEPT AT HER AGE SHE CAN FAIL A COUPLE OF FLICKS AS DIRECTOR AND STILL RETIRE AND CALL IT A LIFE. NEXT!!

    I don't care if she gives up acting. Maybe she can convince her Beaver buddy, Mel, to do the same thing.



  5. 5

    Does her buddy racist, anti-semitic, misogynistic Mel know that she's gay? He might reject the only support that "Hollywood" is offering!



  6. 6

    Is she ever a busy beaver… ;-)



  7. 7

    When there's no calls … time to direct.



  8. 8

    It´s generally necessary to direct some movies before quitting directing.



  9. 9

    Oops. My mistake. She is quitting acting too.

    Perez man, you suck!! You're such a liar.

    Your headline says "Jodie Foster To Give Up Acting, Wants To Direct Science Fiction Flick" and then in the first sentence she writes ""I've reached that point where I don't want to act very much anymore."

    ^^ Man you're just ignorant. Stop making up crap…its why NO ONE likes you or takes you seriously.

    SHE HAS TUNA BREATH. DAMN SHE EATS OUT SOME SERIOUSLY UGLY BEACHES. NO WONDER SHE CANT ACT ANYMORE, NO ONE COULD CREDIBLY SEE HER IN A DECENT ROLE, BECAUSE THE WHOLE TIME YOUD BE THINKING WHAT A NASTY DYKE SHE IS

    Re: MarioMonjack – MM, I have to agree with you. That's the first thing that comes to my mind. I don't even think about Rosie O'Donnel being a bull dyke because she's more open and enjoys her family. With Jodie, you can almost hear the wheels clicking. However, she could become the next M. Night Shymalalen (sp)! lol
