Quote of the Day: Jodie Foster on Turning 40

Apr 21, 2002 | 10:34am EDT

Two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster, who will turn 40 in November, to London's Evening Standard on what it's like:

"I think women are more interesting in their 40s. They've lived longer, they're more confident about their choices and they don't have to be hip and cool any more, which I think is a godsend--you make really bad choices when you are trying to be hip.

"You hear all this stuff about actresses not having the same shelf life as actors, especially once they are over 40. But I didn't make my career as an ingenue or as the beautiful slinky girlfriend."
