One thing you have to say about Jodie Foster is that if you are her friend, you apparently are her friend for life and she will stick up for you through anything. I think that is pretty admirable, especially in a town where they will throw you to the wolves the second you do anything wrong and then when you make it to the top again, they claim they were with you all along and would never leave you.
I have already talked about Jodie and Mel, so I am not going to rehash that. What I saw though when I was reading the article and which I did not know or slipped my mind is that Jodie just finished shooting a Roman Polanski movie. See, this is the strange thing. I have always thought of Jodie as this powerful feminist who would take no crap from any man and here she is loving a woman beater, anti Semite, and working for a director who raped a child. This does not mesh with the Jodie Foster that she portrays to the world. Although the reporter asked about Mel, no one asked her why she would want to work with Roman Polanski. Maybe I don't have as much respect for Jodie as I thought. It is one thing to be loyal to your friends and another to embrace every bad guy in LA.
