This slideshow features pictures of a young Jodie Foster, the beautiful actress who was launched into the spotlight after playing the role of a child prostitute in the 1976 movie “Taxi” (for which she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress). When Jodie Foster was young, she had an insanely sexy face that launched her into super stardom. Although as she aged she lost her symbol of sex symbol, there's no denying that her in her prime was nothing but pure beauty. Her most notable performances include roles in the hit films “The Silence of the Lambs,” “The Accused,” and “Contact.” Many of these photos feature Jodie Foster in some of her earliest movie roles. She has been the recipient of three BAFTA Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award and the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Foster has been acting since the age of three and made the decision to target more mature roles in the 1980s. After starring in three different films that were financially unsuccessful, she landed the role of a rape victim in “The Accused,” for which she won multiple awards and received excellent reviews. She has since delved into directing films as well, which has proven to be a successful endeavor. Enjoy checking out these photos of Jodie Foster when she was young, and try not to fall hopelessly in love.
