Personal Quote:

[on Taxi Driver (1976)] I think it's one of the finest films that's ever been made in America. It's a statement about America. About violence. About loneliness. Anonymity. Some of the best works are those that have tried to imitate that kind of film, that kind of style. It's just a classic. I felt when I came home every day that I had really accomplished something.

Trivia:

She was all set to star in the television film The Best Little Girl in the World (1981). Unfortunately, an actors' strike prevented the film from being made. By the time the production was ready to go, Jodie was already studying at Yale University. The leading role went to Jennifer Jason Leigh. See more »
