Jodie Foster - Jodie Foster: We Are Living The Matrix

Subscribe to Jodie Foster alerts

Jodie Foster feels everyone is living 'The Matrix' film nowadays.

The 49-year-old actress believes the 1999 sci-fi movie - which saw a computer hacker learn about the true nature of his reality and what his role was against its controllers - is an Example of what is ''great'' about sci-movies because they can eventually become true to life even if they seem unrealistic at the time.

She said: ''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.

''When you look at 'The Matrix', 15 years ago, I feel like we're living that now. Obviously, it's allegorical, so they took it to a different extreme, but we are plugged in and living virtual lives, and have all of our connectivity done virtually.''

Jodie's latest motion picture sees her star alongside Matt Damon in sci-fi project 'Elysium'- which tells the story of a futuristic world where rich people live on a luxury space station and the impoverished fight over scraps to survive - and admitted she was keen to work with the movie's director Neill Blomkamp as soon as she'd seen his 2009 film 'District 9'.

Speaking to Movie Fanatic, she added: ''I saw 'District 9' and I jumped up and said, 'This is a perfect film. I want to find this guy.' That's actually what happened.

''A little bit after that, I saw The Script for 'Elysium' and, lo and behold, there was a role for a woman. I was like, 'It sounds good to me!' ''
