….and Annabel in Freaky Friday, and Clarice in Silence of the Lambs…..
And she finally got her own Hollywood star. About time too, what’s been keeping ’em?
Yes the fab Jodie Foster finally got honoured in La-la land. We’ve been talking a LOT these past few months about lost heroes, well here’s another one of mine – finally getting what should have been hers a long time ago, surely.
As Annabel she was an athletic, skateboarding, water-skiing, funny, popular teen who swaps places with her uptight mother in a bizarre occurrence one – ahem – freaky friday. I bloody loved that film. And after hunting it down, so does my 7 year old daughter. Another greeeeat female (see previous Star Wars post)
Tallulah in Bugsy Malone was also actually a bit of a feisty one. And then, of course she finally got proper grown up recognition for Clarice.
Enough said. I love her. And applaud her finally getting her star.
