I don’t know what it is about Jodie Foster. Maybe it’s that we’re almost exactly the same age, (okay, I’m 6 months and 15 days older) maybe it’s because I saw her in so many Disney movies when I was a kid, maybe it was because we’re both blonde (well, I was) and tomboyish and (she says humbly) smart (or at least we both did well at school, which isn’t always the same thing as smart)….
I don’t know exactly what it is. I just know if I could be anyone in the world other than myself. I would be Jodi Foster.
And it’s not the fame (although I wouldn’t hate that) it’s the brains and the class and the confidence and the way her blue eyes matched her dress at the Oscars. I’d die for that. (But my dress would have to be green and my eyes would have to be a different colour of green to look that great in a dress…) How great was it that she told Ryan Seacrest that she had her eyes specially died to match her dress? Wit people. That’s called wit. Okay, I want her wit, too.
I once dated a man who thought I looked likd Helen Hunt (okay, before you laugh, I was thinner then) But if I was going to pick an actress my age I identify with, it wouldn’t be Helen (though I love her) it would be Jodi.
Speaking of actors I remember from childhood — Jackie Earle Haley. God I hope he wins. That would be so cool. I’ve blogged about Little Children before. Amazing movie. Need to read the book.
Okay, just about to post and Celine Dion walzes down the carpet… Okay, I know she has the ESL issues, but “we’ve been to the Oscars before”. Who is she? The Queen? What’s with the royal we?
