Alicia Christian Foster (born November 19, 1962 in Los Angeles), known professionally as Jodie Foster, is an American actress, film director, and producer.
Foster began acting in commercials at the age of three, and her first significant role came in 1976 as a child prostitute in Taxi Driver, for which she received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1989, for playing a rape victim in The Accused. In 1991, she starred in The Silence of the Lambs as Clarice Starling, a gifted FBI trainee, assisting in a hunt for a serial killer.
This performance received international acclaim and her second Academy Award for Best Actress. She received her third Best Actress Academy Award nomination for playing a backwoods hermit in Nell (1994). Her other best-known work includes Contact (1997), Panic Room (2002), Flightplan (2005), Inside Man (2006) and The Brave One (2007).

In addition to her two Academy Awards, she has won three BAFTA Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, the Cecil B DeMille Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Foster has two sons: Charles "Charlie" Foster (born 1998) and Christopher "Kit" Foster (born 2001).
In 2013, Foster acknowledged coming out in a speech at the 70th Golden Globe Awards, and many news outlets afterwards described her as lesbian or gay, although some sources noted that she did not use the words gay or lesbian in her speech. Between 1993 and 2008, she was in a relationship with film producer Cydney Bernard. In April 2014, Foster married actress and photographer Alexandra Hedison.
