My 10 Best Actresses (6/10)

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I know it's been more than half a year since my last post in this series but, at last, I start the top 5.

# 5

"As time goes on, I will play characters who get older; I don't want to be some botoxed weirdo."
- Jodie Foster
Favorite Movie: Flightplan
Best Performance: Nell
Status: Ms. Foster started off as a child star, starting her career when she was just 6 years old. But unlike many child stars who fail to launch an adult career (I shall not name names), Jodie had and still has a thriving filmography. She has won two Academy Award for 'The Accused' and 'The Silence of the Lambs' and many other awards for her acting work. She has also directed some, most recently 'The Beaver' starring Mel Gibson. 
Future Projects: 'Elysium', a sci-fi drama starring Foster and Matt Damon, is in post-production and will be released in 2013. Last year, she also said to be working (as writer/director) on a family-oriented science-fiction thriller but no further news on that yet.
Why Jodie?
Simply put: because she's such a wonderful actress. Even though I haven't yet found the courage to see her most acclaimed works (The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs), I've seen enough to be astonished. I recently saw her in 'Carnage' and so loved to see her on the big screen again. I love the way she approaches acting in that she has no brakes. She goes all in and almost becomes the character herself. And she is so versatile; name any genre in the book, she's done it!

These are the leading ladies of Hollywood that lack the attention they deserve.
