Because why not? (For additional Jodie Foster imagery, check out Fonseca's Fuck Yeah Jodie Foster tumblr.)
CANDLESHOE FTW. I’m 27 yrs old, and Jodie Foster in that movie still embodies everything I ever want/need to be. Smart-mouthed, independent tomboy who eventually strikes it rich. Done and done.
omg yes. i swear that candleshoe left its imprint on a generation of queers. longheld theory.
I was literally just thinking that! Being a preteen was difficult for me and I loved her when I was that age. I wished could be that confident, loud, and independent. And now I’m 25, and I STILL want to be her in that movie. God I need to watch that again. o_o
AAAAAHHHHHHH! My childhood fantasies are once again flooding over me! Freaky Friday Jodie. Silence of the Lambs Jodie. You left out Bugsy Malone Jodie..Thank you for that. *shudder* But so much Jodie! So much Yay!
My SNL proposal:
Kate McKinnon as Jodie Foster, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as themselves. Scene starts “We’re going home with Jodie Foster” – aaaaand GO!
All I have to say is…dang Jodie, dang. (Also, I had a great quotable but Firefox crashed)
She embodied the androgyny tomboy before it was a THING.
So now I have to go and look for her films. Imdb is my best friend for this reason.
Jodie Foster? More like Jodie FOXter. Oww owwww, grrrl.
Also, all the Jodie/KStew friendship is gonna kill me.
THAT PEOPLE WEEKLY IS FROM 1990! I wasn’t even born then…but she rocks the hell out of that cover!
Actually, 1980 even.
You not being born then and still being older than 20 is a little depressing to me, an older fogey compared to you. But I totally agree with what you said about her rocking that cover!
How about Jodie in The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane? HOT (for a 13 yr old…). Young Jodie, yes please (if I were younger, I’m not a pedo, shit this sounds bad).
Also was that movie where she was at summer camp?
I just remember when I made my autostraddle profile and put jodie foster as my favorite thing to autostraddle and now all of my dreams are coming true
If I were Kstew, I woulda cheated on Robert Pattinson with Jodie Foster, not that director guy.
Wow. Just developed a HUGE crush on Jodi Foster. And, fucking hell, Kristen Stewart is so gay. OK, there may be an element of wishful thinking involved in that last statement. Wutevs, A girl can dream.
Bookmarking this page so I can come back and pull a style thief on young Jodie Foster.
before you enlarge it, #33 looks like mariah carey circa glitter.
this felt crucial to the conversation.
also, like chely wright
Did anyone else notice Sissy & Loretta’s “Warm Friendship” in #41? Just sayin.
I believe you meant to write, “Jody Foster Discreet Homosexual.”
Um, she pretty clearly came out at the Golden Globes…
Also, it’s Jodie, so no.
I married Jodie Foster in the 2nd grade after seeing Foxes. Now, this was 2002, but nonetheless…
Jodie in Contact – as a 9 year old I had an obsession with science (and sci-fi). Actually my perfect film.
Also decided I’m basing my 2013 fashions on the looks of #19 and #20. And #34 for special occasions.
she gave middle school me so many feelings when I watched Freaky Friday!
don’t ya mean Jamie Lee Curtis? I don’t remember Jodie Foster being in that movie.
nevermind – i got it now lol
This headline “Jodie Foster Gay” kept coming up on Facebook and all I could think was EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL. I felt that you should know.
I remember that as a kid I had a totally non-romantic infatuation with Jodie Foster. I watched all of her Disney movies not because they were good, but because she was the first person in TV or movies that I related to. It took me a few years to put my finger on why I related so much to her.
Damn! sigh, best fantasy pics ever. . . thank you. Have always loved Jodie Foster! Perfect gorgeous tomboy!
Young Jodie in a Three. Piece. Suit.
ALL MY QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED
thank you riese
#45 is a winner
Someone on ONTD mentioned that her aunt was in a relationship with Jodie Foster in the late 80s, and Jodie used to visit their home for the holidays.
I really don’t suppose anyone in a relationship with a non-private A-Lister could make it these days. The kids will be spilling it all on instagram or twitter.
Mad props to Jodie for making it work!
Jodie was one of my first crushes. I remember seeing her on tv in the seventies, I was like 7 (I’m 44 now) but I can only describe it as my first sense of “gaydar” lol….she was so cute….and tomboyish….much like i was at the time, so it was something I could relate to, and yet could not talk about…
I first saw Jodie on the TV show Courtship of Eddies Father back in 1969 or 70 when I was 9 and she played the tomboy neighbour of Eddie!
Even then I recognized a kindred spirit even though I had no name for it then. At that time she would have been the only character on TV that I could resonate with. She had her husky voice even then!
As a grown up butch I still love Jodie Foster!!
45 is sooo funny. What were the 80s thinking???
