Jodie Foster Shocked By Kristen Stewart’s Hollywood Success

By: / October 20, 2010

Kristen Stewart is one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses, but her former costar Jodie Foster never expected the Twilight star to stay in the business.

Why? It isn’t because Kristen isn’t talented but Jodie just never expected Hollywood to embrace such a non-mainstream individual.

“She’s a great person, and I’m not surprised she’s gone on to to do great things,” Jodie told E! Online’s Marc Malkin, “But I am surprised she is an actress … Even though her mom said, ‘No, she really really wants to be an actress,’ I felt like, Nah, she won’t because she really doesn’t have the stereotypical personality.”

Jodie first met Kristen on the set of the 2002 thriller, Panic Room. Watch the trailer below.

Kristen has taken shots for awkward interviews and not living the typical Young Hollywood in-the-spotlight lifestyle. KStew talked to London’s Telegraph about the issue in September:

I am quite shy and people think I’m aloof. I get that all the time: ‘She should not be in this position because she can’t handle it,’ and, ‘She is stuck up and doesn’t want to talk to anybody. She is miserable, and if you are so miserable stop doing it.’ But do you have a choice? I want to be an actor, I am just not very comfortable talking about myself.

While Kristen may not have “a stereotypical personality,” many fans have embraced her for her non-traditional attitude towards Hollywood.
