10 Reasons We Love Golden Globe Honoree Jodie Foster

Producer, director and two-time Academy Award winning actress Jodie Foster is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes this Sunday, and it could not be more well deserved.

6) She Kicks Ass

Not only did Jodie give us one of the finest heroines of modern cinema with her gritty incarnation of Clarice Starling facing off (pun intended) with Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, but she pretty much taught a wee Kristen Stewart everything she knows about kicking bad guy ass when the duo, who eerily both have voices like long-haul truckers, played mother and daughter in Panic Room. More recently, Jodie played a vigilante you wouldn’t want to f*ck with in The Brave One.
