Jodie Foster Talks About Booking 'OITNB' Directing Gig!

Jodie Foster Talks About Booking 'OITNB' Directing Gig!

Jodie Foster carries a couple of bags of groceries after dropping by Pavilions on Tuesday (June 17) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Over the weekend, the 51-year-old actress was spotted donning a classy dress while posing with Meryl Streep at Jacob Burns Film Center, where they honored film maker Jonathan Demme.

Last week, Jodie sported a name tag while feeding the meter.

“Interestingly, I read the book and I said to my agent, ‘Oh man, I really want to do this.’ He was like, ‘Well, [the showrunner is] Jenji Kohan!’ And I was like, Would you please pass along that I’d like to be a part of this?’ Then eventually I found out a friend of mine was doing prep work for the show, and I told her, ‘Please tell the writer [Piper Kerman] I love that book and I’m dying to do something.’ Then that’s what happened. They don’t tell you what episode you’re shooting so it’s a wonderful exercise and meditation in letting go because you have no idea what you’re doing. One episode takes eight days to prep and eight to shoot. It’s a fast deal. And I’d never done TV before,” Jodie recently shared to THR about landing a directing gig on Orange is the New Black.
