Alicia Christian Foster was born in Los Angeles on November 19, 1962. She is the daughter of Evelyn Ella "Brandy" (Almond) and Lucius Fisher Foster III, an Air Force lieutenant colonel and later real estate broker. Brandy had filed for divorce in 1959 after having three children with Lucius, but the exes had a brief re-encounter in 1962 which resulted in Alicia's birth.
Although she was working far less frequently as an adult than she did as a child, the films she turned out were commercially successful and critically acclaimed. Her next big screen role was in the science fiction drama Contact (1997) opposite Matthew McConaughey.
Twice Academy Award-winning actor. Long-term superstar. Queer icon. Husky of voice, tom of boy and tough as nails – but able to bring an immense vulnerability with it. She’s played wisecracking kids, waspish moms and a whole catalogue of women pushed to their limits. But there’s a through-line a mile wide: these are all, to a number, strong and independent women. Except, that is, when they’re strong, independent girls.Enjoy my TOP movies for Jodie and share me your thoughts.
