According to People Magazine, Former Child Star and accomplished Academy Award winning actress, Jodie Foster shared some advice with “Panic Room” co-star, Kristen Stewart.
Foster’s advice: “Just about how to not go crazy and be a young actor who wants to have a long career.”
And if anyone would know about the graceful transitioning from child to adult on-screen, it’s undoubtedly Jodie Foster. As a child, Foster helmed several Disney productions, “Freaky Friday” and “One Little Indian,” and small television guest star roles before her career took a more serious turn with the acclaimed role of a child prostitute in “Taxi Driver.” Jodie Foster, who incidentally never took an acting class, received two Oscars before the age of 30. She received her first Oscar for her role as Sarah Tobias in The Accused (1988) and her second for the role of Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). Foster is widely considered one the best actresses of her generation, having appeared in block buster hits Contact (1997), Panic Room (2002), Flightplan (2005), Inside Man (2006) and The Brave One (2007).

Foster believes Kristen Stewart is doing a good job managing her newly found stardom. “She doesn’t need any help. She’s on the right track. She’s a good girl,” Foster told People Mag. “And I love that kid. I spent so much time with her.”
