I like to nap. I do like to sleep. Sometimes I sleep in between takes. Jodie Fo
Cruelty might be very human, and it might be cultural, but it's not acceptable. Jodie Foste
I like to nap. I do like to sleep. Sometimes I sleep in between takes.
There are lots of futurists that spend their whole life trying to figure out who we're going to be in 40, 50, 60, 100 years. That's the great thing about science fiction.
There are conscious reasons and unconscious reasons why I pick something. You know, I have to be moved by the story and usually that means it has to touch me in some kind of personal place.
As time goes on, I will play characters who get older: I don't want to be some Botoxed weirdo.
I will always love psychology, and the basis of psychology is family.
I look back at my career when I was younger and can connect what I was going through at the time with the characters I was playing. I see the similarities in them reflecting on my life.

My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of.
My mom was always late. It drove me crazy as a child. So I'm always on time - or early. Jodie Foste
I think anybody over 30 plays parents because it happens in your thirties and so that's kind of a natural progression. But I'm definitely drawn to it. It's probably the most intense, passionate thing that happens to you as you get older.
Casting is a long process for me. I take a lot of time.
I've worked with Neil Jordan, who I really adore. We did The Brave One  together.
Part of me longs to do a job where there's not a gray area. Jodie Foste

There are 400 billion stars out there, just in our galaxy alone. If just one out of a million of those had planets, and just one in a million of those had life, and just one out of a million of those had intelligent life, there would be literally millions of civilizations out there.
I am the luckiest filmmaker I know.
Going back and forth between the press and something like The Crucible must be really crazy and intense.
I really did feel like I was surrounded by family members. I didn't have a dad, and I remember there were all these guys - in the old days, there were no women, except a makeup artist or, occasionally, a script supervisor. So there were just guys who taught me how to, you know, whittle wood, or how
I'm kind of a chatterbox and I talk really fast.
When I go into the stores, I pet the saddles. Until security comes and takes me away.

I think it works better with a woman, which is why I decided to do it, ... men know how to separate themselves from their child. Women lose that ability.
I do think it's true that anytime somebody comes to you and says, "I'd like to be in your film," it's never good to dismiss them or make fun of them, because if they're passionate and driven enough, they very well might find a way to be in your film.
I've only been to Dublin once, and I had a great time. I got completely soaked because it was rainy.
Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And, yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. Hopefully in the process you don't lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and -
