Jodie Foster Wrote About the Kristen Stewart Breakup

Jodie Foster penned an article for The Daily Beast describing what Kristen Stewart must be going through. Why? They once starred in a movie together 10 years ago so Jodie knows a little something about Kristen Stewart. Hint: she boils her problems down to being a child star in today’s age of celebrity. I won’t go through the entire article (you can read it here). Instead, I’ll just quote a couple pieces of it which just happens to be the few parts where she actually talks about Kristen. It’s at the end.

Cut to: Today … A beautiful young woman strides down the sidewalk alone, head down, hands drawn into fists. She’s walking fast, darting around huge men with black cameras thrusting at her mouth and chest. “Kristen, how do you feel?” “Smile Kris!” “Hey, hey, did you get her?” “I got her. I got her!” The young woman doesn’t cry. F**k no. She doesn’t look up. She’s learned. She keeps her head down, her shades on, fists in her pockets. Don’t speak. Don’t look. Don’t cry.

“Men with black cameras thrusting at her mouth and chest?” Was this supposed to be erotic? No? Someone tell my erection that.

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. 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.

Uh, what? She wasn’t wrongfully accused of rape nor did she accidentally kill a kid. How tormented could she be? She just cheated on Robert Pattinson. This’ll blow over in a month or whenever Amanda Bynes crashes into a car and drives off again.
