Last month The Toronto Star ran an interview with actress Jodie Foster. She was at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting her new film Flightplan.
The interview was interesting because of Foster’s candor. For example: She explained that to be famous is to be constantly aware of a skewed imbalance in all your relationships. Everyone you meet knows you and has fixed ideas about you. But all you know of them is what they tell you. Encounters feel mediated and all exchanges are transactions. "You never know if you have a pure relationship with anyone you meet," she added.
