Jodie Foster Net Worth $100 Million

So how rich is Jodie Foster? It can be said that Jodie’s net worth is $100 million. It is clear that the main source of Jodie Foster’s net worth is her role in various movies and TV shows. Jodie is still a very popular and acclaimed actress and she receives many invitations to portray different roles. That is why there would be no surprise if Foster’s net worth grew in the future. Let’s hope that she will continue her career for a long time and we will be able to see her in more movies and television shows.

When Jodie was a teenager, she had an opportunity to study and work in France. There she learned the French language and this later had an influence on her career. Foster began appearing in different commercials when she was only three years old. Later she appeared in such shows as “Mayberry R.F.D.”, “Gunsmoke”, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father” and others. This was the time when Jodie Foster’s net worth began growing. In 1970 Jodie acted in her first movie, called “Menace on the Mountain”. Soon she appeared in more movies and became more famous and acclaimed among other producers and directors. Jodie started receiving invitations to portray more serious roles and one of her breakthrough roles was in the movie entitled “The Accused”, where she worked together with Kelly McGillis. In 1991 she appeared in another well-known movie, called “The Silence of the Lambs”: her portrayal of Clarice Starling added a lot to Jodie Foster’s net worth. In 1991 she also debuted as a director and created the movie “Little Man Tale”. This movie received a lot of praise from critics and encouraged Jodie to continue producing and directing movies. Other movies that she has directed or produced include “The Beaver”, “Home for the Holidays”, “Nell”, “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys” and others. These have had a huge impact on the growth of Jodie’s net worth.

Talking about Jodie’s personal life, it can be said that Jodie is a homosexual and is married to Alexandra Hedison. Undoubtedly, the announcement about her sexuality received a lot of attention and inspired other homosexual people to not be afraid of telling the world the truth. Finally, it can be said that Jodie Foster is a very interesting and talented person. She has achieved a lot during her career as an actress, producer and director and there is a high chance that in the future she will achieve even more.

35 Foster was pursued by an obsessed fan named John Hinckley. Hinckley came up with a plan to impress her by assassinating President Ronald Reagan. Shortly before 2:30 PM EST, as Reagan walked out of the hotel's T Street NW exit toward his waiting car, Hinckley emerged from the crowd of admirers and fired a .22-cal. blue steel revolver six times in three seconds, missing the President with all six shots. The first bullet hit White House Press Secretary James Brady in the head. The second hit District of Columbia police officer Thomas K. Delahanty in the back. The third overshot Reagan and hit the window of a building across the street. The fourth hit Secret Service agent Timothy J. McCarthy in the abdomen. The fifth hit the bullet-resistant glass of the window on the open side door of the president's limousine. The sixth and final bullet ricocheted off the side of the limousine and hit the president in his left underarm, grazing a rib and lodging in his lung, stopping nearly an inch from his heart.

47 Sean Penn's role in The Game (1997) was originally written as a female character with Foster in mind to portray. In the original script, Foster would play the daughter of Michael Douglas's character. However, Douglas insisted that the female character be changed to his sister; Foster did not like the idea as she was far too young to play his sister, and she withdrew from the project.

50 Louis Malle originally wanted her to play the role of Violet in Pretty Baby (1978), a fictional biographical account of photographer E.J. Bellocq.

64 In an article published on September 5, 2006, Foster told the New York Times that she is such a "'serious N.P.R.

69 Producer of Freaky Friday (2003) Andrew Gunn had initially hoped she would be game to play the mother, as Foster had played the daughter in the original film Freaky Friday (1976). Foster declined, in part because of concerns that the casting stunt would overshadow the movie's overall merit.

#Quote
1 [on Richard Gere] A lot of actors think acting is a girl's job, but Richard finds something sensuous in acting.
2 I think "destiny" is just a fancy word for a psychological pattern.
3 [on Jennifer Lawrence] The good news is that Jen, her good-humoured, ballsy, free-spirited ego with the husky voice and a propensity for junk food - Jen, the spirited tomboy from Kentucky - that Jen's got it together. A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.
4 [at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards] I hope that you're not disappointed that there won't be a big coming-out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the Stone Age.
5 I've reached that point where I don't want to act very much anymore. I am much more interested in holding off on acting, after 45 years as an actor. It's a long period of time to do the same thing.
6 Mel [Gibson] and I work in the same way. We're people who focus intensely but for a short period of time. One minute he's standing there making a joke. And then, bam! He's in it. It's all about concentration. What do you need to concentrate.
7 [Agreeing to work with the controversial Mel Gibson in The Beaver (2011)] I grew up with the idea that the movie business is a family. It's like the mob. You don't rat on your friends. Who you are in a business relationship is a reflection of who you are as an artist.
8 [on independent films] Obviously, I've made a lot of independent movies and I ran an independent production company and produced a bunch of independent movies. I don't make as many indie movies as an actress 'cause I don't think I'm well suited for them. I don't know why. As an actress, I think I'm better in mainstream movies because I have a very linear storytelling way and sometimes that's kind of boring for indie movies. So I think I'm a better indie movie director and producer than I am an actress.
9 When people are there to simply do a job they don't have any passion for, those are nearly always bad films.
10 [Criticizing the film adaptation of Sin City (2005)] That was so painfully cartoonish I was offended. I don't know how you enjoy or laugh about a child abduction and molestation. What part of that sentence is funny? I can't get beyond that. I don't know if everyone understands the impact of that movie's message.
11 [on backing Mel Gibson after his 2006 anti-Semitic comments while drunk to a cop he thought was Jewish] Is he an anti-Semite? Absolutely not. But it's no secret that he has always fought a terrible battle with alcoholism. [Mel] was a shining example of how low you can go when you are young and still pull yourself up. He took his recovery very seriously, which is why I know he is strong enough to get through this now.
12 [on Taxi Driver (1976)] I think it's one of the finest films that's ever been made in America. It's a statement about America. About violence. About loneliness. Anonymity. Some of the best works are those that have tried to imitate that kind of film, that kind of style. It's just a classic. I felt when I came home every day that I had really accomplished something.
13 [on the making of Taxi Driver (1976)] You rarely have a director like Martin Scorsese or a co-star like Robert De Niro, who rehearses and rehearses until you get the feeling that for the time you're with him he is the character. It's so real it's frightening.
14 [on the making of Taxi Driver (1976)] There was a welfare worker on the set every day and she saw the daily rushes of all my scenes and made sure I wasn't on set when Robert De Niro said a dirty word.
15 [on her role as the child prostitute Iris in Taxi Driver (1976)] I played something completely different. But I knew the character I had to play--I grew up three blocks away from Hollywood Boulevard and saw prostitutes like Iris every day.
16 [on her role as the child prostitute Iris in Taxi Driver (1976)] At first I didn't want to do the part, but only because I was afraid my friends would tease me afterward. I thought, "Wow, they've got to be kidding." It was a great part for Melanie Griffith, but I couldn't believe that they were offering it to me. I was a Disney girl.
17 As time goes on, I will play characters who get older: I don't want to be some Botoxed weirdo.
18 Motherhood doesn't mean I don't have a creative side that I need to nourish. It doesn't mean I don't have independence from them. I'd be a crazy person if I didn't.
19 I've learned something in the last few years that I really didn't know about myself as an actor. I basically learned how to stay happy. It's important for me to be happy working or I feel resentful. I don't like it. I hate myself. What I know now is that I really need to love the director. I need him to be a good parent. And then I will lie down on the train tracks for him and go to the ends of the earth for him.
20 I'm lucky that people do leave me alone. I'm not Madonna. The red carpet is work for me. I work from 9-to-5 and when I get home, I don't want to go back to work by going to an industry event. For me, putting on makeup and a fancy dress is work.
21 I'm nervous every day on a film set. The anxiety of performance is not like anything else because you never know if you'll get there or not. There is an anxiety when it comes to finding the truth.
22 What I didn't realize is how completely consumed I would be by my sons. I didn't know that the rest of my life would become so little a priority.
23 I love to see theater but not to work in it. Too messy, and I have a bit of an inferiority complex.
24 Acting, for me, is exhausting. I'm always more energized by directing. It's more intense to direct. I can pop in and express myself, then pop out again. It's a huge passion for me.
25 I'm interested in directing movies about situations that I've lived, so they are almost a personal essay about what I've come to believe in.
26 [on devoting more time to parenting her sons than film work] There's something so pure about the ways boys love you.
27 [on "Foster Child", her brother Buddy Foster's unauthorized biography about her] A cheap cry for attention and money filled with hazy recollections, fantasies and borrowed press releases. Buddy has done nothing but break our mother's heart his whole life.
28 If I fail, at least I will have failed my way.
29 [In April 2004, on the advantages of being an actress who is months from turning 40] They've lived longer, they're more confident about their choices and they don't have to be hip and cool anymore, which I think is a godsend--you make really bad choices when you are trying to be hip.
30 [At age 14] Kids talk like sailors now. Adults don't want to know.
31 I could tell you the criticism backward and forward about Little Man Tate (1991). But it didn't bother me as long as they were talking about the work and not about "she has fat thighs" or something. But I fared really well with "Tate", so I shouldn't be complaining.
32 It's not my personality to be extroverted emotionally, so acting has been helpful to me.
33 Cruelty might be very human, and it might be cultural, but it's not acceptable.
34 Normal is not something to aspire to, it's something to get away from.
35 [on her role in Taxi Driver (1976), when she was age 12] I spent four hours with a shrink trying to prove I was normal enough to play a hooker. Does that make sense?
36 Being understood is not the most essential thing in life.
