Foster misses simple lifeMarch 13th, 2008 - 1:18 pm ICT by admin
London, March 13 (IANS) Two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster dreams of a simple life and feels she has missed out on too much. Contactmusic.com quoted Foster as saying: “Sometimes I think, ‘What the hell are you doing? What’s the value of all this?’ I have fantasies about the things I might have done. I wish I’d been a ski bum or maybe had a job at a Starbucks in a ski place.”
She also recounted the trauma she endured through the loneliness of being a child star, saying: “Being a child prodigy is inherently lonely… You’re different from other kids. No one else can understand.
“There’s a longing to connect, a craving to say, ‘Here is the deepest part of me, the part that people don’t see’.”
She added: “People ask me if I missed anything by not having a normal childhood and the truth is, if I’d been an ambassador’s daughter or grown up on a farm in Missouri, I wouldn’t have had a normal childhood either. I had the only childhood I knew.”
