Jodie Foster says #MeToo movement is a "transitional period"

Actress Jodie Foster has shared her views on the #MeToo movement, describing it as a “transitional period”.

Speaking to Porter Edit, the 55-year-old shared that she thinks the movement is causing women to question their past behaviours.

“I don’t think there is a woman I know, who doesn’t look back on when they were 15, 16, 17 or 18, who doesn’t put their hand on their head and say, ‘Why did I do that? Why was I like that? Why wasn’t I confident? Why didn’t I say no?'” she said.

Foster did praise the #MeToo movement, but stressed that it needs to be perfected and that “we can’t put every man over 30 in jail”.

“This is a transitional period, and it’s just so painful,” she said. “You really have to have a plan for truth and reconciliation… We have to love our brothers and fathers and come to an understanding about how we got here and who we are going to be together.”

Foster also was asked if her childhood fame and industry-savvy mother helped protect her from abusers.

“The weird cauldron that made me – working from the time I was 3 years old, supporting my family by the time that I was 7, super-strong mom, over-confident personality, celebrity young enough that I learned to be stand-offish,” she replied.

Foster will next be appearing in Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce’s star-studded thriller Hotel Artemis, which opens in UK cinemas on July 20.
