Is Jodie Foster Raging Against Innocent Teens Now?

Did Jodie Foster assault an innocent 17-year-old fan? Or was she just trying to keep some paparazzi jerk from harassing her family?

Depends on who you ask. The father of the teen, who filed a battery complaint over the May 29 incident, alleges the actress of pushing and shoving him so hard he was bruised — all while he was just trying to catch a movie with his girlfriend at The Grove in Los Angeles!

Or? Not. Foster’s rep insists, “This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo. He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet.”

So less of a fan, more like an enterprising amateur stalker?

On the police report, completed by the alleged victim because police did not bother responding at the scene, Foster’s name is spelled wrong.

    How in the world is a 17 year old kid a “professional paparazzo” ? Did he start taking pictures when he was 7? Maybe if Jodie would just come out she wouldn’t have anything to hide and wouldn’t mind having her photo taken. I used to like Jodie, but she was wrong in this case.

    The rest of the comments from Foster’s rep in the article: “He crowded her and her two young children and took photos of them the whole time,” says the rep, adding that the actress went up to him and asked him to stop.” “This guy’s behavior was completely inappropriate,” says the rep, “and the police report is a fabrication of the incident.”

    Kendall, I really think she’s still not going to want her kids photographed if she finishes coming out.

    I think that this kid was probably too aggressive, and that her response was also. I don’t see why she doesn’t have a body guard 24/7 after the whole John lennon thing.

    I didn’t know there was an age requirement to be a paparazzo.

    In this day and age a 17 year old guy would be the perfect person to be a paparazzo. He would know all about digital technology …are you kidding me?

    He can use that a nice digital SLR. A Mark II, D5 or D7 maybe. Edit on photoshop and email to his favorite buyer. Hell, he can even send them an HD .mov file at 1080p or 720P

    The bitch’s career is SO OVER. She should be delighted that ANYONE wants to take a picture of her.

    Fosters name was spelled wrong. That in itself is enough to have it dropped and disappear.
