On her 55th birthday, let’s take a look back at some of the many Jodie Foster movie memories

Time sure does fly.

Jodie Foster turns 55 today and she’s been an actress for just about all of her life.

She’s won Oscars for The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs and been nominated for Nell and Taxi Driver. She’s also starred in such box office hits as Panic Room, Contact, Maverick, Inside Man and Flightplan.

To celebrate her birthday – and her longevity, I’ve delved into the YouTube vaults for a sampling of scenes from throughout her career – all the way back to Freaky Friday and The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane.

3 Remarks

  1. Amazing actress! “Doctor Lector, Doctor Lector” is still my favorite.

  2. I have loved her since seeing Tom Sawyer in 1973. She played Becky Thatcher to Johnny Whitaker’s Tom Sawyer. Here is a clip when the Thatchers move in to their new home in Hannibal, MO. She had her trademark raspy voice even at age 10!

  3. I loved her during her years as a child actress in Disney movies. Freaky Friday was a fun one. Also enjoyed her immensely in her later films.

    In my opinion, Jodie Foster is the best actress of her generation.
