Jodie Foster - Jodie Foster Fumes: Leave Kristen Stewart Alone!

Jodie Foster, who knows a thing or two about media scrutiny, has come out in a fierce defence of Kristen Stewart and attacked the media for the amount of attention they've been giving to both her and her now ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson over the affair the former had with director Rupert Sanders. It's been widely reported that Stewart is annoyed at taking the brunt of the blame whilst Sanders has been left largely alone, and Foster has risen to defend her former co-star.
"We've all seen the headlines at the check-out counter. 'Kristen Stewart Caught.' We've all thumbed the glossy pages here and there. 'Kris and Rob a couple?'..... But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process," she wrote for the Daily Beast. Foster added that the levels of media scrutiny these days were far too much and that if it had been similar when she started in the business she'd never have got into it. "I would quit before I started" she wrote. "If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don't think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety."
Foster also had a message for young stars just starting out in the game, addressing them "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-finally-the most beautiful survival tool of all. Don't let them take that away from you."

Nestlepro's picture


Kristen must be in really bad shape if Jodie felt compelled to write this long ass article. Is this an article about Jodie because it seems to be all about her. I agree that the media and fans have gotten out of control with all the scrutiny and hate but I find it hard to sympathize for Kristen because she really did bring this upon herself. Sure people cheat but most people are not in the public lime light associated with a billion dollar franchise with a rabid fan following. What Jodie fails to address is why this "beautiful young women" would act like a cat in heat and cheat in public with a married man? What bothers me about this "mistake" is not that she cheated or that he is married, bad yes, but rather her blatant disregard for her relationship with Rob that she would choose to humiliate him in public. As Rob now tries to move on with his life, he has to endure uncomfortable questions in interviews, hecklers shouting obscenities that he couldn't satisfy her, and be constantly reminded about it every time those pictures of Kristen and Rupert are published. Regardless of the state of their relationship, the poor guy did not deserve this type of treatment because she did not have the decency and emotional maturity to end the relationship in private. Surely, Jodie you must find this behavior indefensible, not the cheating but to destroy a person you supposedly love and respected, in public., making him the biggest sucker in the world. And of course, the person she chose to destroy happens to be a very likable charming person. Considering that her behavior not only may impact the twilight franchise , hurt thousands of fans, and humiliated her boyfriend, this "mistake" was pretty epic and a major cluster f**k So Jodie if you can help us understand her behavior then maybe we will stop demonizing her because she chose to do it in such a public way that allowed for public scrutiny.
