Movie star: Jodie Foster: “Acting was against my nature”

The Oscar winner says she never actually fell in love with acting. In the interview, she shares which careers she thinks would have suited her better.

Oscar winner Jodie Foster does not see herself as a born actress. “I was not a natural actress,” said the 61-year-old in a conversation with fellow actress Jodie Comer (31) in the magazine “Interview”. “I just slipped into it when I was three,” said Foster, who had already appeared in commercials as a child.

She assumes that otherwise she would “probably have become a lawyer or a university lecturer,” the US actress explained. She loves “the technical side of filmmaking, but I never fell in love with the acting part. It was against my nature.” Nevertheless, she has benefited from acting: “I think it has made me a richer person.”

Foster was once the prototype of the Hollywood child star. At the age of 13, she played an underage prostitute alongside Robert De Niro in “Taxi Driver.” This earned her the first of five Oscar nominations. In 1988, she played a rape victim in the film “The Accused” and won the Oscar for Best Actress. The second trophy followed for her role as young FBI agent Clarice Starling in the psychological thriller “The Silence of the Lambs” (1992). This year, Foster was nominated for her supporting role as a swimming coach in the biopic “Nyad.”
