Jodie Foster Disagrees About Song Lyrics

18 December 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Jodie Foster is a huge fan of veteran Irish rockers The Saw Doctors - and caught them in action twice on their recent American tour. She even bought their CDs from the merchandising stand after the shows. But Jodie apparently was baffled by a new song from the band. Bass player Pearse Doherty says, "We played a new song called 'A Big Bag of Chips and A Burger to Go.' After the show she asked if we could settle an argument as she thought it was called A Big Bag Of Chips and a Bourbon To Go!" »

Jodie's Film In Tatters

2 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Russell Crowe has wrecked Jodie Foster's latest movie project after badly injuring his shoulder on the set. The actor was playing a circus freak in the film Flora Plum (2001) when he fell during a stunt and shattered his shoulder, and despite hopes that his recovery would be fast, it now looks as if Foster will have to scrap the project or find a replacement. And if Jodie opts to continue she'll have to find a replacement for her female lead, Claire Danes, too - the actress was shooting the movie during a break from her studies at Yale University, but she's now back in class. Crowe's injured shoulder is likely to take nine months to mend - prompting Ron Howard to stall his movie A Beautiful Mind, which was to be the New Zealand actor's next project. A spokesman for studio Universal says, "Everything depends on when Crowe's shoulder mends and that's unknown at this point." »
