3) She’s a Former Child Star Who Isn’t Off Her Nut
As we mentioned earlier, Jodie has been in the public eye since even the older among us can remember. She began working in that Coppertone commercial and virtually never stopped. She starred on television, for instance, as the young con artist in the TV series Paper Moon before moving on to Disney flicks like Candleshoe and the original Freaky Friday. Not just a cute kid Jodie proved her acting prowess early on taking on the role of a pre-teen prostitute opposite Robert DeNiro in Martin Scorsese’s modern noir Taxi Driver.
Contrary to the adult lives of so many child stars who're in and out of rehab she appears to have weathered early fame fairly unscathed. Here’s a clip of Jodie’s Freaky Friday -- not of that other child actress who starred in the remake.
