    Post  Eugene on Thu Nov 01, 2012 7:02 pm




    “Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career,” said HFPA president Adia Takla-O’Reilly. “Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She’s truly one of a kind.”

    The Cecil B. DeMille Award is given to individuals who have made an impact on entertainment. Previous honorees include Morgan Freeman, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Walt Disney, Harrison Ford, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese, Frank Sinatra, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, among many others.

    Foster earned two Academy Awards for her performances as a rape survivor in The Accused and as a special agent in The Silence of the Lambs. She started acting at three, appearing as The Coppertone Girl in a TV commercial, before landing regular roles on TV shows like Mayberry RFD, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, My Three Sons and Paper Moon. Foster made her film debut in Napoleon and Samantha.
    Other notable credits include her portrayal of a streetwise teenager in Taxi Driver, Bugsy Malone, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Flightplan, A Very Long Engagement, Panic Room, Anna and the King, Contact, The Brave One, Nim's Island, Inside Man and Carnage. She recently wrapped Elysium opposite Matt Damon.
    Foster made her directorial debut with 1991's Little Man Tate, before going on to helm Home for the Holidays and The Beaver. In 1992, she founded Egg Pictures.

    The Golden Globes, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will be produced by dick clark productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

    Q&A: Jodie Foster On Her DeMille Award
    David Mermelstein is an AwardsLine contributor

    Few stars can rival Jodie Foster’s durability. One has to go back to Hollywood’s golden age—to the likes of Judy Garland—to find those who even approach her successful transition from childhood roles to adult parts. And what other child actor started directing after accomplishing that transition? None. Which is why it’s fitting that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is bestowing on Foster its highest honor, the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

    Foster has been with us so long, it’s almost impossible to believe she’s just 50. Amazingly, it’s been 20 years since she won her second best-actress Oscar (for Silence Of The Lambs). Her first came three years earlier (for The Accused). But her first Academy Award nomination dates back to 1977, for Taxi Driver, in which she played a young teen prostitute, opposite Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel.

    “I’ve been doing this a long time,” Foster says with typical understatement during a recent phone interview. “And it feels like a long time, but it also feels great. I don’t remember ever starting. My earliest memories are doing commercials and TV. And here comes this celebration of my whole life. So now what? Hopefully there’s more to come.”
    There no doubt will be for Foster, who continues to eye both acting and directing projects with an eagerness tempered by discernment. Yet she acknowledges a certain ambivalence regarding her career. “I don’t know if I have the personality for it,” she says. “I’m not sure if I’d not fallen into it, it’s what I’d have done. I mean this mostly as an actor rather than as a director, but I’m one for entirely different reasons from most people. It’s become a psychological evolution. I chose movies based on what I had to learn about myself, not because I had to act. There’s lots of things I’m not interested in, and I don’t want to play parts in those movies.”
    Despite the wide range of roles Foster has undertaken and the very different plots of the three films she’s directed, she sees a throughline in her work. “I always feel like I’m making the same movie over and over again,” she says. “Nobody else seems to notice, but I do.” The perspective, though, is markedly different depending on whether Foster is acting or directing. “As an actor, I’m always playing solitary characters,” she says. “But as a director, I’m always making ensemble movies, which focus on lots of people’s lives and how they intertwine. Similar things interest me both as an actor and as a director but in totally different ways. As an actor, I’m attracted to drama; as a director, it’s humor—because it’s the story of my life, and I can’t be that serious about it. Being alone is a big theme in all my movies, both as a director and as an actress.”
    The actress credits her mother, Brandy, with laying the groundwork for her transition from family-friendly roles to more serious work, and Taxi Driver (1976) was the turning point. The film’s producer, Michael Phillips, remembers director Martin Scorsese’s determination to cast Foster, an instinct that really paid off. “She was only 12 and kind of shy,” Phillips recalls. “But she was very intelligent and quite mature. She just had the acting chops. She was very natural in the character and seemed unthreatened and undaunted by the sexuality. That was one of the big issues—how comfortable she would be with that material. She was doubled for the sexual material; some of it her sister did. But she was exposed to blood and violence. It was just her politeness that gave away her age. She was impossible not to like and respect, and it was amazing how much self-possession she had at that age.”

    By the time Foster appeared in The Accused (1988), there was no denying that a major actress had arrived. Yet she insists that even after she made that film, she had doubts about spending the rest of her life in pictures. “Right after The Accused, I was heading to grad school and thought that was the last of those. Part of me was disappointed in my performance. Then I saw the movie and realized that a lot of it was about fear and a lot was unconscious. And also I thought, Literature doesn’t wake me up at 5 in the morning. So grad school wasn’t going to do that.”

    Her perseverance in Hollywood was rewarded with The Silence Of The Lambs (1991), which won five Academy Awards, including best picture. Jonathan Demme directed Foster to her second best actress Oscar, yet he credits her with helping him shape his conception of the film. “The first time I met Jodie,” Demme says, “we hadn’t started casting yet. But she reached out to express her deep regard for the book. She described it as the story of one young woman desperately trying to save the life of another young woman, with these roadblocks put up by all these men. And something really clicked for me when she said that, and that became the theme that guided me in making the movie, and it impacted endless decisions. I was so moved by what she said that I named my production company Strong Heart in honor of Jodie’s thematic inspiration. I treasure how she oriented me as how best to tell this story.”

    Though modest about her two Oscars, Foster willingly acknowledges their impact on her career. “It’s like winning the lottery,” she says. “It doesn’t mean you’re a better person. At the same time, after my first Oscar, I was able to say, ‘OK, I’m doing this incredibly risky thing. I’m going to try and direct.’ It gave me some kind of passport that I might not have had. But I also think the reason you were given the honor is because you played from the heart, not because you followed a rulebook. And you learn you have this great saber, which allows you to make decisions against the tide. Silence Of The Lambs was not something people expected me to do. But I loved this book and this character, and the film operates at such a high level. And by the way, I just won an Oscar, so too bad. It was really the best decision I could have made.”

    The impact of those wins resonates even now, for the avenues they opened offered Foster a way to remain fulfilled in Hollywood. “I think it’s something I’ll probably do my whole life and also something I need a break from a lot,” she says. “But there’s lots of different ways to tell stories and lots of different ways to make films. I’ve only directed three movies, and I’ve got a lot to learn, and there’s a lot ahead for me there. It’s hard getting movies off the ground—harder and harder every year. My goals are humble as a director. They’re really about having the films as an expression of who I am. As an actor, you can’t really do that. You do it and move on. But directing, well, that’s me. It requires a real 100 percent investment in all levels of the storytelling.”

    Foster isn’t shy about owning up to missed opportunities, even if she isn’t eager to mention specific projects. Yet she remains optimistic. “I’ve had a weird career, and I get a lot of grief for it,” she says. “What I choose is just really personal, especially as a director. I can’t just go, ‘I like scuba diving, so let’s do a scuba diving movie.’ It has to be something I would die for. And because it’s the story of your life, there are the popular parts and the parts nobody likes and the parts people don’t understand. But I have to make those movies, too.”

    Q: You’re awfully young to get a lifetime achievement award. Aren’t they usually given to doddering old men?
    A: It definitely makes me want to go buy a walker. In some ways, it’s just about sheer endurance. I’ve been working steadily since the 1960s. I’m an oddity.
    Q: Most child actors burn out early. How have you kept going?
    A: I burn out periodically. Maybe I’ve lasted because I’ve had a weird career, doing so many different things. Directing allowed me to look at film in a different way, but I can’t imagine giving up acting because it’s a side of me that doesn’t get articulated in any other way. It’s all about self-discovery and trying things you’re scared of.
    Q: You’ve always been a very private person. Is that getting harder in the Twitter age?
    A: Not really because I’m pretty boring. That seems to work for me. I know this may surprise you, but I’m not as sought-after as Justin Bieber.
    Q: You recently finished shooting "Elysium," a sci-fi thriller co-starring Matt Damon that’s set in the year 2159. So what’s the future like?
    A: It’s a film about class and the growing inequities on our planet between rich and poor, the healthy and the unhealthy, those with opportunities and those without them. As time goes on, things become more polarized. A luxurious space station is constructed for those who have means and can afford to leave the rotting Earth. I play a political leader who tries to keep immigrants away from the new habitat.
    Q: You defended Mel Gibson when he was accused of some outrageous behavior. Any regrets?
    A: I don’t know if defend is the right word. I just said he’s an amazing actor and an incredibly loyal, kind and generous friend.

    Q: You appeared in your first TV commercial, for Coppertone,

    when you were 3, and acted throughout your childhood. Do you have many memories of those times?
    A: Tons. I have memories of growing up on sets and going to all these amazing places. Like going to national parks in Utah and riding on a horse in a petticoat. Or going spelunking at Meramec Caverns in Missouri. I can’t imagine a kid from California having those adventures any other way.
    Q: You went topless in that Coppertone commercial, didn’t you?
    A: I didn’t want to wear a top because when I went to the beach, I never wore a top. Just bottoms. I remember my mom tried to talk to me about it, but she finally said, "Fine, don’t wear a top."
    Q: Not many actors have an asteroid named after them. How did that happen?
    A: I’m not sure, but I guess it had something to do with this (outer space) movie I did called "Contact." There are a lot of crazy astronomers out there and they loved that movie.
    Q: You’re raising two boys as a single mom. Is that harder than acting and directing?
    A: The biggest challenge of raising kids is your anxiety: Will they go to college, what will they do, will they be loved? But really, it’s a lot of fun. When I was younger, I didn’t realize what a creative experience being a parent is. It makes you look at the world differently.
    Q: The Golden Globes dinner is infamous for being a rowdy affair. Will you remain dignified?
    A: Well, my kids are coming with me, so we’ll see. They went last year and there was some kind of chocolate party that Godiva threw, so they were all over that.

    Q: When you’re not making movies, what’s your favorite activity?
    A: My two passions in life are movies 102
    and skiing. I’m a real diehard skier.
    I’m there first thing in the morning when the lifts open and I’ll ski until I have to go to the airport. I’ll even change in the car.
