Jodie Foster- the U2 of Hollywood?

I just thought of something interesting- just as U2 is the only band to still be together after 25 years with the same members, same manager, no breakups, major drug problems, deaths, financial problems, or other such scandals, Jodie may just be the ONLY actor/actress who has been a very successful child, teen and serious adult star with a high rate of success and no scandals. Let's hear it for Jodie, a classy lady.

Well, Jodie Foster I don't find very moving or inspiring.. so I wouldn't say she's the U2 of Hollywood...

She's a brill actress, I just don't care for her.

I do care for David Fincher, however, and so thus am seeing Panic Room tonight.

I wouldn't say I was moved or inspired by her, and to tell you the truth I was never that big of a fan, except when I was a kid and she was in some Disney movies. It's just that looking at an ad for Panic Room, I suddenly realized how long and successful her career has been. She started out at age 2 in a Coppertone tanning lotion commercial, and was the original model of the girl on the billboard with her pants being pulled down by a dog. She was a child star and a teen star, went to law school, then went on to a successful serious movie career and an Oscar.

I just thought that was amazing, considering all the kid and teen stars who end up on drugs, in jail, dead or with ruined lives. It's like the rareness of U2's longevity in its original form compared to the pitfalls and 'Behind the Music' stories that befall most rock bands.

For that, I thought she deserved recognition.

I've loved Jodie for so many years. Since "The Little girl Who Lived Down the Lane", I suppose. Looking forward to Panic Room.

ZOOTB - I don't think you are being difficult. When I started reading this thread I thought about Ron Howard. He and Jodie are a rarity. I like them both.

I never thought about Richie Cunningham, him too!

I never liked the Coreys- where ARE they now? I got sore during the SB halftime when my brother bugged me that Bono's new short slick hairdo made him look like Corey Feldman.

Corey Feldman is actually in Moby's new video.

Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

Is Gary Coleman in it? He seems to be in a lot of videos, or am I thinking of Erik Estrada?

I love Jodie! She's great, she's my hero.

You know, I remember hearing that she is a U2 fan.

What about 2 children who nobody knows who the father is? Isn't that a bit of a scandal?
And didn't her brother write a book with some scandalous stuff?

BTW...Panic Room was pretty good, worth seeing.

Saw panic Room yesterday.

Here is my geeling on Jodie Foster - she is a way better actor to be doing movies like this. It was a crap movie. She needs to stop doing crap movies. If she can do quality movies, then she can be compared to U2. U2 has not put out a mind-numbing album that is overly predictable that could be compared with Panic Room.
