Jodie Foster is an American actor and feminist.
"I love life-threatening situation movies, They're not about, 'Will I lose my virginity?' And in terms of women in history, 95 percent of women's experiences are about being a victim. Or about being an underdog, or having to survive. So, if I played Wonder Woman all the time I would be betraying where I come from. Women didn't go to Vietnam and blow things up. They're not Rambo. That's why 'Silence' [the movie "The Silence of the Lambs"] is such a big departure, because it stands for all the same things, but you have a real female heroine. It's not about steroids and brawn, it's about using your mind and using your insufficiencies to combat the villain." Quoted in The New York Times Magazine
