Movieline interviewed Jodie Foster at Comic-Con for her up-coming film ‘Elysium’. During the interview, Jen Yamato asked her about recent trends in roles for women.
Movieline: If you look at recent films for example, you see a string of big-screen heroine tales – Kristen Stewart as Snow White, for example.
Ms. Foster: Which I loved! I loved it. To be so bold and so emotional, I just thought she was terrific. They were both great; Charlize Theron was fantastic. I really loved it, and I did not expect to like it. I didn’t think I was going to care, but it really got me.

In hindsight, Jodie says she should’ve given her former “Panic Room” co-star Kristen Stewart a ring to get some tips on how to deal with the excited crowds – especially since the “Twilight Saga” star has been to five Comic-Cons to date.
“[Kristen] really should’ve given me some tips,” Jodie told Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz with a laugh, at the convention in San Diego. “She’s doing great. I just saw ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ which I thought was extraordinary and I thought she was absolutely brilliant in.”
The “Breaking Dawn” beauty, now 22, was just 12 years old when she played Jodie’s on-screen daughter back in 2002, and Jodie said she’s watched Kristen’s career grow with a bit of maternal pride.
“I’m proud of her,” she said. “I feel like she’s my daughter too!”
