Jodie Foster: Alicia Christian Foster was born in Los Angeles. Alicia's siblings nicknamed her "Jodie," a name she has used in her profession. When she was just three years old, Jodie began acting in commercials, most notably for Coppertone sunblock. When she was five, Jodie landed her first acting role on the TV show Mayberry R.F.D. (1968). She stayed very busy as a child actress, working primarily on television programs such as The Doris Day Show (1968), Adam-12 (1968), and Gunsmoke (1955).

In movies, she had small roles like playing Raquel Welch's daughter in Kansas City Bomber (1972), and first drew attention from critics with her performance in Taxi Driver (1976), in which she played a prostitute at the tender age of 12 and received her first Oscar nomination. Jodie always sought challenging roles and she did so in the 1976 film The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane, a role that was scandalous to many conservative viewers due to that fact that her fourteen-year-old character seduces the boy next door.

She went on to have a very successful career in her early teens with leading roles in the Disney films Freaky Friday (1976) and Candleshoe (1977). The last film Jodie made during this era was the coming-of-age drama Foxes (1980), before enrolling at Yale University. Tragedy struck Jodie during her Freshman year when a crazed and obsessed fan name John Hinckley shot President Ronald Reagan to impress her.

Jodie graduated from Yale in 1985 with a degree in literature. After appearing in a few little-noticed B-movies, Jodie auditioned for The Accused (1988) and was cast Sarah Tobias, a party-going waitress who is gang-raped in a bar. For this role she won her first Academy Award and Golden Globe as Best Actress. In 1991 she starred as Clarice Starling, an FBI trainee hunting a serial killer in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). The film was a blockbuster hit, winning Jodie her second Academy Award for Best Actress and establishing her as an international star at the age of 28.

With the wealth and fame to do anything she wanted, Jodie turned to directing. She made her directorial debut with Little Man Tate (1991), which was followed by Home for the Holidays (1995). These movies were critically acclaimed but did not do well at the box office, and Jodie proved to be a far more successful actress than she was a director. 1994 proved to be a huge triumph for Jodie's acting career. She played a sexy con artist in the hugely successful western spoof Maverick (1994) with Mel Gibson. Then, she played title role in Nell (1994) alongside Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson. For her compelling performance as a wild, backwoods hermit who speaks an invented language and must return to civilization, Jodie was nominated for another Academy Award and won a Screen Actors Guild Award as Best Actress.
