Jodie Foster, From Child Prodigy To Prestigious Director

The actress and director Jodie Foster will receive this Tuesday the Palme d’Or of Honor awarded by the Cannes Festival in recognition of personalities from the world of cinema. In this way, the French festival has wanted to honor the professional career of Foster, an artist who has always stayed out of the spotlight, something rare in Hollywood.

Jodie Foster is a regular at Cannes. When she was only 13 years old, she presented her first big success as an actress: Taxi Driver (1976) directed by Martin Scorsese. Throughout her career, she has returned to the competition on six other occasions, including to present one of her films as a director: The Beaver (2011).
