In an interview with The Guardian Newspaper, Jodie Foster shares her opinion about working with Gen Z stars. 

“They’re really annoying, especially in the workplace. They’re like, ‘Nah, I’m not feeling it today, I’m gonna come in at 10:30 a.m.’ Or, like, in emails, I’ll tell them this is all grammatically incorrect, did you not check your spelling? And they’re like, ‘Why would I do that, isn’t that kind of limiting?’” she said. 

Speaking about the advice she’d give to young people in the industry, she said: “They need to learn how to relax, how to not think about it so much, how to come up with something that’s theirs.”

“I can help them find that, which is so much more fun than being, with all the pressure behind it, the protagonist of the story.” she added. 

Yet, in the remainder of the interview, the actress shared positive sentiments about Gen Z, expressing a sense of obligation to support young actresses, given her own challenging experiences growing up.

The Silence of the Lambs star started her career by featuring in TV commercials at the age of three and subsequently became a prominent child star, appearing in movies like Napoleon and Samantha (1972), Taxi Driver (1976), Freaky Friday (1976), and others.

Foster, set to feature in the upcoming True Detective series, specifically commended a young talent, Bella Ramsay, renowned for her roles in The Last of Us and Game of Thrones. They crossed paths at a Hollywood event where Ramsay’s unassuming appearance, bareface, left a lasting impression on Foster, who admitted she couldn’t have felt comfortable doing the same in public during her younger years.

Jodie, who has two sons named Kit and Charles in their twenties with her former partner, film producer Cydney Bernard, also discussed the issue of challenging gender stereotypes within her own family.

The star, who is now married to Alexandra Hedison, said: “My two don’t like sports. They like to watch movies and sit at home, and they’re really into their female friends. They’re super feminist. There was a moment with my older one when he was in high school, when, because he was raised by two women, three women, it was like he was trying to figure out what it was to be a boy.”

Meanwhile, on X, netizens criticize Foster’s statement and say older generations criticizing younger generations happens all the time.
