Jodie Foster: Leave Kristen Stewart Alone!

Jodie Foster: Leave Kristen Stewart Alone!

Jodie Foster is speaking out about the media’s take of the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal in an op-ed piece she wrote for The Daily Beast.

Here are some excerpts from Kristen‘s Panic Room co-star’s piece:

On media ruining young celebrities’ childhoods: “Lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams. See, they’re just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process… I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started.”

On working with Kristen: “In 2001 I spent 5 months with Kristen Stewart on the set of Panic Room mostly holed up in a space the size of a Manhattan closet. We talked and laughed for hours, sharing spontaneous mysteries and venting our boredom. I grew to love that kid…“She doesn’t want to be an actor when she grows up, does she?” I asked. Her mom sighed. “Yes … unfortunately.” We both smiled and shrugged with an ambivalence born from experience. “Can’t you talk her out of it?” I offered. “Oh, I’ve tried. She loves it. She just loves it.”

On Kristen today: “Cut to: Today … A beautiful young woman strides down the sidewalk alone, head down, hands drawn into fists. She’s walking fast, darting around huge men with black cameras thrusting at her mouth and chest. “Kristen, how do you feel?” “Smile Kris!” “Hey, hey, did you get her?” “I got her. I got her!” The young woman doesn’t cry. F–k no. She doesn’t look up. She’s learned. She keeps her head down, her shades on, fists in her pockets. Don’t speak. Don’t look. Don’t cry.”

On moving on from a scandal: “Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And, yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. You trust less. You calculate your steps. You survive. Hopefully in the process you don’t lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and—finally—the most beautiful survival tool of all. Don’t let them take that away from you.”

Shut up you diesel *itch!

# 3

Very much agreed. Say whatever you want, i adore Kristen !!

# 4

Glad to see there’s people actually seeing that a mistake don’t have to define your whole career and of course neighther your life. Glad to see people supporting both of them. Carry on, both!

Sorry, but any person who doesn’t have respect for somebody elses marriage and family, gets every bad thing they deserve. And the married person risking everything for a cheap fling deserves just as much, if not more, c r a p that comes their way.

Shut up, Foster. I bet if Trampire had an affair with your husband whom you had children with you would not be saying much of anything. You would be too mortified, broken, and hurt. The trampire participated in a selfish, destructive act. The director is just equal of a scumbag. This is the backlash she gets. I bet Kristen loved how she was being touted all over for her so-called acting so I guess she has to take the good with the bad period.

Oh please, Jodie! We don’t want to ruin her career by any means, but we are only talking about the huge mistake she made which are two separate things, I’m sure you are old enough to know that.

Sorry, Jodie. Doesn’t change what she did. She IS a cheater. Is she evil and bad? No. But she had no concept of the hurt she could cause by her stupid dalliance. It’s stupidity for an adult woman to not be able to think that through. Not to mention the great guy she has lost and hurt deeply. Yes, it will “blow over”, but she has probably caused irrevocable damage to her relationship and a marriage.

Wake up people. Kristen is not a saint. The reason why people are pissed is because all along she has acted like she was above everyone. What a hypocrite. I bet if Foster knew the person who had an affair with her husband (acting like she was her friend) Foster would feel the betrayal even more.

I’m glad she’s taking her side. Not that I agree with cheating but I’m sick of people sl*t shaming Kristen because of her private life. She lost movie roles yet the married man who ALSO cheated is still directing? Revolting. Hollywood is such a misogynistic place—this would have never been so blown out of proportion had it been Robert doing the cheating.

I like Jodie Foster andi realize that everyone makes mistakes. However, I don’t think she should defend Kristen for cheating on her loving boyfriend with a married man. What about Liberty, her kids and Rob’s feelings?Perhaps she should write a letter for them, because they are the innocent ones who have gotten their hearts crushed.

I can’t take her seriously since she defends Mel Gibson and Roman Polanski so passionately. Kristen is not as bad as these 2 but she is still a crappy person.

Leave Kristen alone?? Then MAYBE Kristen should have written a PRIVATE apology to her boyfriend. Kristen brought all this on herself, and she wanted it. For in a interview expressing she wishes something would happen because she felt like a bore, AND for CHEATING in a PUBLIC place with .. i give up.
Go back into your closet Jodie. People are gonna start talking about YOU since YOU talk about people(Kristen).

You mean to tell me that it’s okay when the media is giving praise to Kristen when she gets roles and appears on covers and gets paid millions in the process, but the media “should leave her alone” when she goes an have an affair with a director whom she knew the wife and children. How professional is that of Kristen. Sorry, Kristen and that dog director made their dirty bed and hurt many in the process so they should both lie in it.

Tell that to those kids, Foster who Kristen played with and acted all fake around. Tell that to the wife, Foster. How insensitive of you.

I like Jodie, but no.

Jodie Foster is sooooo full of sh!it. It’s such a hardship to be a celebrity!! doesn’t matter all the BS their PR feeds the public over the years? yeah, we should all feel so sorry for them. NOT

Foster just lost all the respect i had for her. what the hell woman. if it was your husband then you would have probably killed kristen. why the fu.ck is she cleaning kristen’s a.ss.
nutcase. i bet she’s thinking of getting back to the industry so people need to talk about her and thats why shes talking about this now.

kristen is a sl.ut and she has no talent what so ever.
enough said.

OK BUT…..WHY ALL THE ACTORS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PAPZ, THE MEDIA, THE CRITICISM, ETC, AND NO ABOUT THE MILLIONS THEY EARN?, THE HOUSES, THE CARS, THE CLOTHING , AND ALL THE LUXURY?
THIS COME BY THE HAND WITH FIRST DEAR CELEBRITIES AND YOU KNOW IT , WEN YOU SIGN ON THE X OF A MOVIE CONTRACT YOU SELL YOURSELF TO THE MEDIA .

AND IF I KNOW, ALL THE EYES ARE ON ME, I BEHAVE =D

Jodie, you should be embarrassed. What that trampire did is not a small thing. A broken home, a broken trust resulting from both the directors and Kristen’s behavior is not something you just wake up from or that fixes itself overnight –especially with children involved.

Jodie, please go back into the panic room because you are trying to trivialize something with serious consequences. Kristen is a public figure. Comments and opinions come with the territory, especially when the public support these figures by supporting their movies, music, or whatever else.

Jodie doesnt seem to be denfending her but point out facts about this life and the media. I didnt take it fully as defending Kristen.

Jodie Foster’s response is a tad bit dramatic. I’m sure this girl will go on to have a great career despite her lack of acting skills. Cheating scandals have followed many people over the years and I don’t see her standing up for them.

I’m sorry but the idea that these public figures do not complain about all the millions they receive and extensive media coverage to promote their movies or projects but want to scream “leave me alone” when things are not too peachy is such hypocrisy. Take the good with the bad. If you do not want the bad, don’t go messing with a married man. Same goes for the scum director. Keep things professional, Not ****** and deceiving…

Foster, you need a grip on reality.

She shouldn’t of said anything.

who set Foster free from the Panic Room. She needs to rethink her statements. She gives no regard to the wife and children. A true friend will and should tell you when you are wrong. Kristen’s acts were very wrong. The cheating husband actions was extremely wrong. Both were wrong. Perhaps if Kristen never acted like she was above Hollywood and everyone else on the planet …people would not be so appalled by her participation in an affair, but we all know that is not the case. What happen to no comment, did Foster just want to get on headlines. That’s very classless of you, Foster.
