Feeling Feisty, Foster?

posted by on December 14 at 10:44 AM

Seems the wave of hysteria unleashed after Jodie Foster confirmed a certain open secret has loosened the woman’s tongue. I’ve been getting this ridiculous cascade of “reaction” quotes from all the Golden Globe nominees via their respective studios. They’re studiously boring, even the one from Saoirse Ronan in which she gives us the Irish translation for “thank you very much.” (It’s “Go raibh mile maith agaibh,” apparently.)

And then comes Ms. Foster: “The nomination is so exciting and surprising at the same time.  Never saw it coming… I can’t wait to have some rubber chicken and listen to the unscripted banter with all of those fine actresses.”

No, tell us how you really feel.

Is "rubber chicken" lesbo code?

@2: Wikipedia sez:

The term "Rubber Chicken" is often used disparagingly to describe the food served at political or corporate events, weddings, etc. where there are a large number of guests who require serving in a short timeframe. Chicken, pre-cooked, is held at serving temperature for some time and then dressed with a sauce as it is served. Consequently the chicken meat is tough or “rubbery.”

That is your WP cut-and-paste for today. Thank you.

hey, she's been playing the lameass Hollywood game since she was 2. Our favorite Hollydyke has apparently had enough and is speaking her mind.

Anyone with her talent, career and placement in American history, vis a vis Hinkley/Reagan, can say whatever she wants.

Go, Jodie, Go!

Somehow, all I can think about when I read this is Jodie Foster in the Contact suit. Hotness.

I think she's saying "I'm honored to be a part of this event". What's so feisty about that?

Her reaction to the unscripted banter is an allusion to the reality that a number of actresses regarded by the public as intelligent or educated happen to be neither. It's shocking how common this is, when you finally meet them in person at an unscripted gathering, face to face.

So, in a way, she's pointing out most of the catty comments will be coming from fish mongering housewives who live on gossip, not from any intellectual heavyweights who treat acting as a craft.

@8: That, and uh, the lack of writers.

Well, yes, but the sad thing is some of the actors want to become directors and think they can write ...
