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. While Foster’s visceral turns in Taxi Driver, The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs are reason enough to adore the former child star who attended Yale, and who is likely a lesbian, we thought we’d honor her with the reasons we love her.

5) She gave us the language of Nell

Back in 1994 Jodie very earnestly made Nell, about a woman raised virtually by wolves, isolated and alone, in a remote cabin in Appalachia. The film costarred Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson, and Jodie landed an Oscar nomination for the part. Despite the film’s serious themes the language of Nell has become highly quotable. Who can forget such arresting dialogue as this? “Chicka, chicka, chickabee. / T'ee an me an t'ee an me. / Ressa, ressa, ressa me, / Chicka, chicka, chickabee.”
