#METOO – Jodie Foster follows French news, particularly cinema. This Tuesday, February 13, the American actress, currently starring in the new season of the series True Detective on Prime Video, was at the microphone of France Inter, where she was questioned about the movement to denounce sexual violence in the French 7th art, relaunched since the Depardieu affair.

Like Judith Godrèche, Jodie Foster began her career on screen when she was just a child, at the age of 10 in Napoleon and Samantha with Michael Douglas, but says she was well protected from the adversities of the environment by those close to her, especially her mother.

Judith Godrèche filed a complaint against director Benoît Jacquot for “ rape with violence against a minor under 15 years old”, as well as against Jacques Doillon for “ rape of a minor under 15 years old by a person in authority.” Her story pushed other actresses to testify, triggering a freedom of speech but also a malaise in the profession.

And CE2 by Jacques Doillon, a feature film about school bullying, is still announced for the end of March.
