Actress, director and producer
The Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster is an intellectual when talking about books. She just loves literature and to read a good book.
Your last movie Nim's Island is based in a children's book. Did you also do this so that you'd have a film your kids could see?
Yes, because they've already read the book and they loved it. The book had a big impact on my son—so now after he read the book he can visualize me. It was like he discovered literature in a completely different way. I couldn't get him to come to dinner because he was too busy reading the book again. It was great.
Did you read the book or the script first?
