Jodie Foster,who played Kristen Stewart’s mother in ‘Panic Room’ in 2002,hopes that the ‘Twilight’ actress will eventually overcome the scandal surrounding her affair with director Rupert Sanders.
The ‘Silence Of The Lambs’ star has now penned a blog for The Daily Beast expressing her concern for Stewart while blasting the witch hunt of the 22-year-old actress by the media.
“My mother had a saying that she doled out after every small injustice,every heartbreak,every moment of abject suffering. ‘This too shall pass’. God,I hated that phrase. It always seemed so banal and out of touch,like she was telling me my pain was irrelevant. Now it just seems quaint,but oddly true. Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away,” Foster said.
Narrating how she became fond of Stewart while working on ‘The Panic Room’,Foster said she would daydream that the child she was carrying while shooting the film would be as carefree and lovely as Stewart,who was only 11-years old at that time.
Foster hopes that Stewart will bounce back from all the mess surrounding her affair.
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 wrote.
