Jodie Foster

Biography: Having made a successful transition from child to adult star, Jodie Foster has also survived horrific treatment as a gang-rape victim in The Accused (1988) and encounters with Hannibal Lector in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), both of which garnered her Academy Awards for Best Actress. After that, her role in Flightplan (2005) as the mother of a daughter who goes missing during a transatlantic flight holds a different form of terror. Surely real-life Jodie can cope... After all, she's made more than a hundred television and film appearances since she was three years old (starting with the iconic "Coppertone Girl" ads in which Foster plugs the suntanning product when a playful pup tugs her swimsuit bottom to display the lotion's effects, and to include her controversial role as a preteen prostitute opposite Robert DeNiro in 1976's Taxi Driver), is an accomplished director and producer, has performed in French language films, and even been stalked by the would-be assassin of President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
