Jodie Foster: Leave Kristen Stewart Alone!

She’s always spoken her mind on media scrutiny, and Jodie Foster recently shared her thoughts on how Kristen Stewart has been treated as of late.

The “Silence of the Lambs” actress, who starred with Stewart in “Panic Room,” noted that Kristen has been unfairly judged and watched from day one.

Foster’s article for The Daily Beast states, “We’ve all seen the headlines at the check-out counter. ‘Kristen Stewart Caught.’ We’ve all thumbed the glossy pages here and there. ‘Kris and Rob a couple?’ We all catch the snaps. ‘I like that dress. I hate the hair. Cute couple. Bad shoes.’”

Jodie also mentioned that it was a different game back when she got started. “You could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life.”

“If I were a young actor or actress starting my career today in the new era of social media and its sanctioned hunting season, would I survive? Would I drown myself in drugs, sex, and parties? Would I be lost? If I were a young actor today I would quit before I started.”

Foster added, “I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.”
