Jodie Foster Stands Up For Kristen Stewart In Moving Daily Beast Piece

Chloe Moretz In “Taxi Driver”-Styled Spread

In the 1976 film “Taxi Driver,” Jodie Foster plays Iris, a teenage prostitute with whom Robert DeNiro’s Travis Bickle forms a bond. The film–and Foster–received criticism for having such a young girl play the role: Foster was just 13 at the time.

Jodie Foster: Even Women Studio Execs See Female Directors As A Risk

Jodie Foster is one of the few successful working actress/directors, so she’s the logical person to ask, “Why aren’t there more women directors out there?”

While out promoting her upcoming film “The Beaver,” Foster shrugged off the idea that Hollywood is making a concerted effort to block women from getting behind the camera.

I feel like we’re in one of those cartoon episodes where the bad guy puts something in the water supply to make everyone angry.

I Wanna Dress Like: Jodie Foster In “Taxi Driver”

Most women don’t want to dress like a 14-year-old prostitute from the ’70s, but Jodie Foster’s look as Iris Steensma in “Taxi Driver” is rather tame and stylish by today’s standards. We’d never condone crop tops, but we love her high-waist short shorts, platform sandals, and big floppy hat. These three outfits totally fit i…
