Jodie Foster got the reaction she always wanted after showing off her toned abs in the 2023 release Nyad. “I’ve been waiting to be objectified my entire life, so I’m very happy that people have started talking about my body parts,” she told The Guardian.

Foster, who began acting as a toddler, featured alongside Annette Benning in the cinematic swimming drama based on the true story of Diana Nyad. Foster played the role of Nyad’s coach, Bonnie Stoll, with whom she is good friends in real life. “She’s just the loveliest human being,” Bonnie said of her last year.

Foster will return to the HBO series True Detectives for the fourth season titled “Night Country.” She spoke about working on set as an older person and having to deal with “Gen Z.” “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…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 explained.

The actress also advised younger people in the industry 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.

Jodie Foster’s response to aging

In preparation for her role, Foster reportedly followed coach Bonnie’s lifestyle, including her training, diet, and supplements. Bonnie commended Foster’s near-perfect depiction of her, which she described as “surreal and unbelievable.” “The first time I saw, I definitely thought it was me. I mean, she did it. It surprises me almost every time I see the movie, and I see it quite a bit. I think it’s me up there,” she gushed.

Regarding working out, Foster is a “fitness freak” who begins her day with “twenty pushups and twenty minutes of jogging every single morning.” Per aging, she claims her sixties feel like “the best shift of all” because she evolved into a different perspective and attitude toward her career. “This is not my time. I had my time. This is their time, and I get to participate in it by giving them whatever wisdom I have,” she told Greta Lee for Interview magazine last year.
