Former Child Actor Jodie Foster Says People Don’t Understand Child Actors

Jodie Foster starred in her first commercial at the age of 3. At 13, she played a hooker in Taxi Driver and got an Oscar nod. Recently she told the New York Times she was "excited" and "happy" that Beast of the Southern Wild's Quvenzhané Wallis was nominated for an Oscar: "I was worried that she'd be overlooked." She continued:

"I think people don't really understand child acting," said Ms. Foster, who first went in front of the camera at age 3. "They think that they just throw them out there, and they're cute and that's what they do. But that's a really layered, beautiful performance that comes from a completely instinctual place. It's just God-given, you know?"

"I think kids are like that or they're not," she said. "You have to know your child. For some children, they can adapt to this world, and it's appropriate for them, and for some, it isn't. It's kind of like being an astronaut: some people have problems with gravity, and some people don't."

Didn't she say she was going away?

The Days of our Lives kid actors are the worst of the worse except for Allie and Sierra. Tune in to see the worst child acting EVER for little Johnny, Sydney, etc.
