Child prodigy, Jodie Foster started her career very young. After a few appearances in commercials, she turns 10 years in his first film, a Disney production (Napoleon and Samantha, 1972), in which she plays a little runaway. As a teenager, she already has to his credit several Hollywood productions such as Tom Sawyer (1973), A Little Indian, or Alice is not here, one of the first films of Martin Scorsese. Impressed, the latter hired him to play the young prostitute in Taxi Driver, offering passage to a first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 1976. The same year, his role in Bugsy Malone Alan Parker confirms its early success to the greats.

Do not neglect his studies, Jodie Foster studied at the French College (she speaks fluent French) and then at the prestigious Yale University, where she shows in 1985 a degree in literature in his pocket. During school holidays, she plays including dramas Hotel New Hampshire and Carny. In 1988, the composition of Sarah Tobias, a young female rape victim who defended his case in The Defenders Jonathan Kaplan, the Best Actress Oscar spends. She repeated this performance three years later in interpreting the young rookie FBI Clarice Starling in the thriller The Silence of the Lambs, directed by Jonathan Demme. The film, which one meets Anthony Hopkins brings him international fame.

After The Silence of the Lambs, Jodie Foster's career has seen a real boost. It is the generic drama Sommersby (1993), the comedy Maverick (1994) or Nell (ditto), who sees embody a young girl raised away from the world. But it is quickly becoming rarer, preferring to focus on his family. She then stands in dribs and drabs, dashing through the science fiction film Contact (1997), the historical film Anna and the King (1999) or the ambitious thrillers such as the Panic Room by David Fincher (2002) and Flight Plan (2005). At alongside Gerard Butler, she tries to comedy adventure in Nim's Island.

Hollywood star Jodie Foster is nonetheless very attached to France. It works well on three occasions with filmmakers hex: Claude Chabrol for The Blood of Others (1984), Eric Le Hung for Me, Blue Flower (1977) and Jean-Pierre Jeunet for A Very Long Engagement (2004).

The U.S. also has experience behind the camera: she is director of the Little Man (1991) and Family Weekend (1995). She is also producing the latter, as well as The Brave One, which has not been not as successful as expected at the box office.
