Sounds like Jodie Foster didn’t get out all she needed to say during her inspirational Golden Globes speech last night!
While the legendary actress touched on issues of lack of privacy and growing up in the spotlight, after the award ceremony concluded, she delved a little bit deeper!
One person she spoke out in support of to reporters was Kristen Stewart, whom she starred in Panic Room with.
You may remember how back in August, Jodie stood up for KStew during her whole cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders, and pointed out how the media “unknowingly destroys” young actors’ childhoods.
Last night, Jodie took up for Kristen again, stating:
"I think it's important that when people are struggling, that you not run away from them if you love them. Kristen, I mean, I look at the room tonight, you know, Kristen Stewart and Claire Danes, Jennifer Lawrence, all these young women that I worked with who basically were child actors like I was a child actor, and then I feel very protective of them.”
Jodie's definitely not a bad person to have in your corner!!
Mz. Foster continued:
“Even though I think I have managed to get through the process relatively sanely, I had my scars, and I hope to be in some ways a member of their family that's out there protecting them."
Aw! That's super sweet of her to be there like a northern (iconic) star!
Maybe with Jodie's help, there will be more attention brought to the pressures and subsequent scrutiny in which child actors are faced with!
