Kristen Stewart’s movie-mom, Jodie Foster, is defending the young actress after she was caught cuddling up to her married director, and allegedly cheating on fellow Twilight actor, Robert Pattinson.
Foster, who stared in Panic Room with Stewart in 2002, said the media needs to lay off and mind their own business when it comes to Stewart’s personal relationships.
From The Daily Beast:
Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And, yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. You trust less. You calculate your steps. You survive. Hopefully in the process you don’t lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and—finally—the most beautiful survival tool of all. Don’t let them take that away from you.
Foster argued that the Hollywood machine stops young actors from being young. “If I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally,” Foster wrote in her column.
