Jodie Foster will be the newest recipient of the Golden Globes' Cecil B. De Mille Lifetime Achievement Award this winter, which makes her one of the youngest to take the title. (Judy Garland was 39, for the record -- Foster is 49.) As long as I've watched movies, I've found Foster a singular and interesting presence on film. I can't say that about many former child stars. Though if Tiffany Brissette wants to star in robo-version of Nell any time soon, I guarantee I'll be the first in line.
To honor Foster's achievement, I thought we'd highlight her lesser-known achievements. Here are my five favorite tidbits.
1. She beat Meryl, Glenn, Thelma, and Louise at the Oscars.
