JODIE FOSTER SPENDS TIME WITH HER BOYS AMID NEW LEGAL BATTLE

Posted in Jodie Foster on October 26, 2010 by fadedblog

Jodie Foster spent the day at a local park in Los Angeles on Sunday (October 24) with her children.

The Oscar-winning actress could be seen playing soccer with her sons Charles and Christopher “Kit” Foster who looked to have enjoyed the quality time with their mother.

Jodie appeared to be in good spirits considering that she’s being sued for allegedly attacking a teenager in a mall parking lot after the 17-year-old boy took photos of her and her children.

“We have retained an attorney to proceed with a civil suit against Jodie Foster for her assault since justice was not served by the DA’s office,” the boy’s father says. “We will proceed in civil court … our attorney is proceeding.”

The District Attorney’s Office refused to prosecute the May incident, citing a lack of evidence. The victim, who claims the actress scratched and bruised his arm trying to grab his camera, begs to differ: “Ms. Foster viciously attacked me for taking a photo, which was totally uncalled for and it scares me to think that we live in a society where it’s really okay to hit people if you’re a celebrity in Hollywood or if you are rich and famous,” the boy said.

JODIE FOSTER CHEERS ON LITTLE CHARLIE AT SOCCER PRACTICE

Posted in Jodie Foster on September 29, 2010 by fadedblog

Taking a break from her acting duties, Jodie Foster supportively watched son Charles Foster‘s soccer practice in Los Angeles yesterday (September 28).

Between rounds of scrimmage, the 47-year-old Oscar-winning actress could be seen chatting on her cell phone with a mystery friend.

Meanwhile, Jodie — who recently made headlines after extending the arm of friendship to embattled actor Mel Gibson — has just been cast by Roman Polanski in the upcoming adaptation of Yasmina Reza‘s Tony-winning play God of Carnage. The other three leads will be played by Christoph Waltz, Matt Dillon and Kate Winslet.

The filmed adaptation of the French playwright’s Tony Award-winning play tells the story of two sets of parents who meet after their sons are involved in a fight. The meeting takes a turn with attacks on each other’s parenting and then assaults against the marriages.

The story is set in Brooklyn, though since Polanski is not allowed in the United States he is filming it in Paris for 12 weeks starting in February.
