Is her mother still alive? If so, what's the situation with her nowadays?
She looks ready to fight. And obviously can't do heels. She has no poise what so ever.
[quote]She looks ready to fight.
All female actresses have memorized the same bizarre "angle" poses that are supposed to look hot, Jodie, bless her natural lesbian self, missed the straight chick memo and stood normally.
It needs some poof.
[quote]There's Oscar talk for her with this film.
She needs a career boost. Though, this is Polanski, so I don't know how kindly will the Academy voters look on the film.
Foster wants to direct. The problem is no one in Hollywood is too eager to give her $30 mil. or so to make a film. And she is too cheap to invest a couple of million of her own money to make an indie film.
Jodie Foster has very short legs and her calves are overly muscular. She just looks silly in a coctail dress, especially one where the straps are cockeyed.
I like the old broad, so I don't really get upset, but she is oddly proportioned for a human.
Mmmm. Yeah. I would totally have the intercourse with her. Vaginally.
This play will not translate well into film. The trailer looks horrible.
She's not quite a lipstick lesbian, and she's certainly not a bull dyke. Jodie's look needs a category name.
She also needs some jewelry and perhaps a more stylish hairdo.
But they would give him money to make the piece of shit that was "The Beaver", r7? She doesn't need that much money to make a film. It's been her decision to stop working for a number of years. She's already doing that upcoming sci-fi movie in 2013. I would have loved for her to have done the Leni Riefenstahl film.
Has anyone picked up on the fact that she's kind of a weirdo now, beating up kids, defending Mel Gibson to no end, and all the info surrounding her breakup? She did a 180 image wise.
Why she did "Nim's Island" is beyond me.
I worked on a few of her films and she lives in nothing but t-shirts and sweatpants with no make-up and greasy hair.
Look at that dress! What is up with the collar? The person who designed that should be shot!
She has beautiful eyes and gives great face. But, everything else about her is still very tomboy.
[quote] Jodie's look needs a category name
I would also have vaginal intercourse with her. I would ensure sufficient foreplay before penetration.
It's not a flattering length, and she doesn't know how to pose. But I like the haircut, very sleek.
Expect to see a major meltdown from Jodie when her controlling mother dies.
Love the hair, but as r18 points out, the dress is a bad style and length for her.
The trailer... OMG, so claustrophic! Is the whole damn thing filmed in one room?
She looks like a lizard.
[quote]The trailer... OMG, so claustrophic! Is the whole damn thing filmed in one room?
So was Death and the Maiden, and it was a great film. If one thing Polanski does well, it is claustrophobia.
The preferred term is "reptoid".
G. Bush Sr.
Doesn't she have someone to tell her what not to wear? That dress is horrid. She would have looked better in a sweater and black slacks.
Is JF playing the Marcia Gay Harden role? That's the best one.
The robe holding the dress up isn't even symmetrical. It looks like they pulled it off some sort of robe. It's practically falling apart.
That rag she's got on is horrible! Well, from the waist down it's ok, but that hideous shoulder strap cum harness situation is FUGLAY! It looks like a bunch of painted black pig iron draped around her neck.
The shoulder straps and upper part of her dress look like they're made from twisted black trash bags. Looks like something I'd expect off a Project Runway challenge on recycling.
[quote]She looks ready to fight.
I can't stop laughing at this. I would love to meet and hang out at a club with the bitch who wrote this. We would have so much fun.
Her shoes look too big, too.
[quote]Expect to see a major meltdown from Jodie when her controlling mother dies.
I think the mother has been vegetative for a few years now.
Not a flattering length for Jodie, but she does look good otherwise.
I had no idea her mother was alive. She must live in a home; she's never photographed with Foster.
R35: another person who believes that all of a celebrity's life is encapsulated in publicity/paparazzi photographs. There is no life beyond the lens of the photographer.
Oh, c'mon, R36. A celebrity doesn't have to choose to be photographed and it will still happen.
I like the hair, she always looked good with that bob cut.
Let's give Jodie props for sticking with the ugly old girlfriend when she could easily get a hot young trophy wife.
The movie takes place in one room, except for the first and last shots. The movie is horrible. I thought the play was funny, but I didn't laugh at all during the movie. It just doesn't work as a film. It comes across as completely lifeless.
Jodie Foster is definitely the best of the four, but it's nothing remarkable. I would be shocked if it were nominated for any Oscars. It will probably get some Golden Globe nominations in the comedy category, since the HFPA will eat that shit up.
Fresh off the massive success that was "The Beaver."
She is devoid of grace.
Does she still make soup?
Does she still have a boxer dog?
"I worked on a few of her films and she lives in nothing but t-shirts and sweatpants with no make-up and greasy hair."
What about her personality?
Still the hottest lesbian in H'wood.
She actually looks great but needs a stylist to help her dress for her body.
I enjoyed the play on Broadway. Why did they change the name of the film from God of Carnage to Carnage?
R22- the play took place in one apartment in real time. 90 minutes with no intermission. I believe I read that, for the movie, we will get to see the incident with the kids on the school playground that ignites the whole thing.
So they have opened it up a bit--- at least the beginning.
[quote] Thank God there is one Hollywood actress who is naturally beautiful and does not resort to poisons, fat or surgery to make herself looks "better."
Could people possibly be this stupid as to believe Jodie Foster has never had surgery or used botox?
For God's sake, her nose alone is a veritable advertisement for rhinoplasty. Look at the straightness of it.
And do I see any wrinkles on her forehead? Noooo. I wonder why? Isn't she 50 years old? How many 50 year olds do you know with completely smooth foreheads?
"Still the hottest lesbian in H'wood."
Not while Portia Di Rossi is alive.
[quote]Still the hottest lesbian in H'wood.
While she is not a good actress and her latest cheek implants are weird, Saffron Burrows is was hotter than Foster.
make that = way hotter
Speaking from the Black perspective, Jodie Foster is not hot. Looks like some plain White girl.
Sorry, but she seems too thin
After her break-up, she's been looking tired and drained
[quote]While she is not a good actress and her latest cheek implants are weird, Saffron Burrows is was hotter than Foster.
Burrows isn't a lesbian.
Her shoulders are asymmetrical, giving her a somewhat disheveled appearance. She favors her left arm?
She looks chic and pretty. But I wish panty hose would make a comeback.
Portia is loosing her looks now, imagine when she hits 50. Foster is hot.
[quote]I think the mother has been vegetative for a few years now.
Thanks for the info, R32. Although the mom may be all but dead now, I think the actual death will make Jodie implode(maybe privately).
[quote]For God's sake, her nose alone is a veritable advertisement for rhinoplasty. Look at the straightness of it.
Wrong R50. She's always had he same nose. Some people don't like her sharp features, but I think they are very beautiful.
Shut the fuck up about Jodie Foster you motherfuckers.
I love love love love love love love her.
She and I are about the same age, and I saw [italic]Taxi Driver[/italic] the year it came out, and I so yearned at the time to grow up to be Jodie Foster.
She looks fabulous in those photos. If I looked that good, I'd even risk praising God.
From an African American lesbian womans point. I think she's beautiful. I would love to spend 24 hours in bed, or otherwise with her.
The dress is horrid.
She absolutely has had a nose job, R61. I have been watching her for her entire career. She had a nose job around age 16.
Wow, R65 may be right. She used to have a small "bulb" on the tip of her nose. She must have shaved it off since her noise if pointy now.
Still think she's hot, but I think she does have Botox forehead. I don't think she needs it; she's one of those women who could age naturally and still look great.
Another of the lesbians
I worked at a hotel where they were having film festival news conferences a few years back, and I was shocked at how tall she is and also by how beautiful she is in person. She's not amazon tall, but I always thought of Jodie as a short woman and she isn't. She's easily 5'6". She had make-ip and lipstick on, but not overpowering, and she had a golden tanned complexion. Just gorgeous.
You're a big fat liar r68 she's no more than 5'1.
That couldn't have been her, R68. As R69 said, JF is rather short.
I wonder if the rumor that she and Cherry Jones got in on during the filming of "The Beaver" was true? Kinda hope it was. Cherry Jones has that 'Scorpionic Saphic Southern Swagger' (a term I have coined to describe her) in just that way. But, she was barely in the film.
Jodie Foster has just always been a Lesbian.
When I was but a mere elementary schoolgirl, she pinged in all those films which were re run on the kiddie cable channels of yesteryear. These films oftentimes featured a little red haired boy who she could barely pretend to find cute, what for her ping. Her grand cinematic ping.
When I was but a mere junior high student, she pinged while at University in every p.r. picture taken of her at that time. John Hinkley lessened the ping for a brief while because he hadn't gaydar.
When I was but a mere highschooler, she pinged mightily in "The Accused." So very mightedly did sheping that most folks at the time thought that she and Kelley McGillis fucked their way through the filming.
And when I was but a mere University student (I am not from the US originally, hence my English), she pinged to the heavens in "Silence of the Lambs." Why, all the way from Barranquilla, Colombia we heard her ping and embraced it because Colombia is the home of the first openly gay neighborhood of all South America.
Jodie Foster has pinged to such a grand extent for just so very long, that the public is deafened by her being a Lesbian and just does not care anymore.
We saw the film at a preview screening last week. It was engaging and claustrophobic. There were a couple of laughs throughout. The acting was good, if a tad mannered, but that is the danger of filming a stage play.
Kate Winslet was annoying. She did manage to be using Lancombe cosmetics throughout so kudos for promoting the brand that pay her shitloads.
Who is Jodie dating now after the breakup with her "beautiful Cydney" wasn't she with Cindy Mort?
Yeah, she was with Cindy Mort for a hot second.
She's going into Helen Hunt territory.
She used to shop at Neiman's BH, and I thought that she was pretty short- like 5'2".
So no pictures of her dad online? I'd love to see any pictures of her immediate family.
Do you people believe her brother's claims that she had relationships with guys at some point?
She is a beautiful tomboy.
I always assumed that she grew into her nose and it naturally became a bit sharper looking with age as the fat disappeared.
Jodie's a butch lesbian -- it's just that simple. It's only in the last 15 years or so that being butch became so contemptible.
Butch women can't rock ANY kind of dress. JF should take a page from Rachel's book. Rachel's the hot one, and she never pretends to be anything she's not.
And yes, she should have people dress her.
I disagree r84. I've seen some very hot pics of Jodie in a dress. But, I think she looks better in black leather.
For professional appearances I've read that she gets the entire outfit delivered to her. Dress, shoes, jewlery.
The look from the waist down reminds me of Peppermint Patty.
R10. I saw a preview last week at the PGA. I thought it fought its way through the prickly forest of stage to screen very well.
I've seen it, too, and it's entertaining but suffers from two big casting mistakes-Jodie Foster and Christoph Waltz. They're both badly miscast. Kate Winslet is good and John C. Reilly is excellent.
I'm wondering from the people who have worked with her what she is like.
Dress is awful but she looks great.
"She looks ready to fight" is the DL quote of the year IMO.
Re R7: Polanski, who won an academy award for best director a few years back
R94, let's vote it for W&W.everyone else please vote, too.
In her photos I always notices her eyes first. They are a piercing shade of blue.
Most women today speak to much in their upper register....Jodie has the opposit problem.....less basso profundo Jodie
(took a voice class once)
Has anyone seen Carnage? It's not released in the UK until next year (Kate Winslet has already promoted it on the Graham Norton Show). It looks very good, but the context whiffs of an Oscar vehicle.
Jodie's dress is terrible. It looks like one of the those dreadful creations from Project Runway. It baffles me why she wears such shit - it doesn't suit her, and she looks terribly awkward.
If she'd had a nose job, I think they would have removed that weird crease at the tip. I don't think she had a nose job. Those pictures with a rounder looking nose are from when she was young. Everyone has round noses when they are young.
I'm still waiting on Nell 2.
Looks great from the neck up. I don't think the dress is as bad as everyone is saying. I've seen her in much worse, that dress is actually okay.
me too r102. I'd love to make BONK!!
Natasha Richardson flatlining
R102, I don't think the dress is bad on its own merits, it just isn't right for her on any level.
She looks very lean and hard, and the dress is so incredibly incongruous it makes her look even more masculine, not in a good way.
But she's gorgeous, and the hair is fine. She just needs different clothes. Something that flatters her, like an old-school tuxedo.
Or if she wants to wear a dress, it should be something that doesn't accentuate her masculine body structure, like a dress that goes all the way to the floor and doesn't reveal so much of her broad, strong shoulders.
104 responses in just a few hours. Are we sure John Hinkley wasn't a lesbian?
I have seen Jodie in person and she is about my height of 4'7".
What is it with this dress? I remember a time when Jodie was always dressed by Armani and she never once looked near bad. His clothes worked very will with her angularity.
I've seen her in person at an industry event and I wassurprised by how tall she was and how very very pretty she is. True, she was in heels and had make up on, and was very attractively dressed, but she looked beautiful, no joke.
No one is saying she's ugly, R108. On the contrary, she has a beautiful face (though, her lips are getting tighter as she ages). We're commenting on her choice of wardrobe.
John Hinckley, who shot Reagan, seeks more time outside hospital
November 30, 2011 | 10:05 am
A federal hearing began Wednesday morning on whether John Hinckley Jr., who shot and wounded President Reagan in 1981, will be allowed to spend more time outside the mental hospital where he is being held.
The hearing began promptly at 9:30 a.m. before Judge Paul L. Friedman of the District Court for the District of Columbia, said a court spokeswoman in a telephone interview. The proceedings are expected to take days but will end no later than next Friday, she said.
A jury decided that Hinckley was insane when he shot Reagan outside a Washington hotel. Reagan recovered and served two full terms as president before he died in 2004.
Hinckley said he did the shooting to show his feelings for actress Jodie Foster.
Presidential press secretary James Brady was shot and permanently disabled in the shooting and went on to become one of the nation’s leading voices against gun violence. A Secret Service agent and a police officer were also wounded.
Hinckley has been living in St. Elizabeths Hospital, a psychiatric facility operated by the District of Columbia’s Department of Mental Health. The current proceeding, at the request of the hospital, is to ask the judge to allow Hinckley to have extended visits outside the facility with the idea of eventually living near his 85-year-old mother in Williamsburg, Va.
Hinckley already has had several outside visits for as long as 10 days. Friedman, who has approved more visits for Hinckley in the past, is being asked to allow visits of 17 to 24 days.
“There is no evidence of him being dangerous, not a little bit, not marginal evidence,” Hinckley’s attorney Barry Levine said in October. He added government claims to the contrary are “shameful fear-mongering without any factual basis.”
Government lawyers, however, oppose the extension, arguing there are questions about the potential danger from Hinckley.
“The proposal fails to adequately address the risks presented by Hinckley's clinical record, which reveals the persistence of several behaviors that universally have been recognized as risk factors for Hinckley's future violence,” lawyers argued in their court papers. “The hospital's motion should be denied.”
Among those expected to testify are Hinckley’s relatives and doctors.
Foster's father lives on $677 a month in Social Security and is, apparently a crook.
[italic]According to Cocek, the 89-year-old building contractor bilked each of his clients out of a $5,000 downpayment after he claimed he would build them low-cost modular homes for $85,000. He planned to make the three-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot homes out of metal cargo containers from China.
To add more credibility to his purported scheme, he would name-drop that he was the father of the two-time Oscar winner.
“He wanted to help low-income people who couldn’t ever be able to own a house,” testified alleged victim Karina Kazaryan. “He said he was the father of Jodie Foster and he had a lot of money and he was just doing it to help people.” Foster told The Daily Beast that he receives $677 a month in Social Security benefits and drives around in a 1971 Volkswagen.
Why would she do that, R114? He left her mother while Jodie was still in the womb. He never contributed to her welfare or the welfare of her three siblings. Jodie was the breadwinner of the family since she was a toddler.
He looks well put together for 89, r114.
Who is Jodie Foster?
The comments on this thread are shallow and despicable.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
