Jodie’s gift

CLICK to ENLARGE

This may be one of my favorite Jodie Foster posters ever. Jodie, a gun and a hint of belly. What is not to love? I’ve already drooled all over the beyond intense trailer for “The Brave One” and now the film’s stark-yet-stunning one-sheet (click above to enlarge) is making me think Sept. 14 can’t come fast enough.

Speaking of Jodie, she just made an “extraordinarily generous gift” to The Trevor Project, the nation’s only 24-hour suicide prevention hotline for gay and questioning youth. Jodie’s gift went toward a campaign to create the Randy Stone Call Centers, named in memory of one of project’s founders who passed away in February. Randy Stone was also Jodie’s best friend and an Academy Award-winner in his own right. You may recall Jodie choking up while honoring him during this year’s In Memoriam segment at Oscars.
This isn’t Jodie’s first foray into supporting a gay organization. She was thanked in the credits of the short film “Trevor,” which Stone produced and won an Oscar for. The short was the impetus for The Trevor Project and tells the story of a 13-year-od boy who comes to terms with his sexuality while acknowledging his love of Diana Ross and the school jock. Jodie’s new donation is the largest in the organization’s history. Simply, bravo. Is it September yet?

Sorry, but I don't see anything sexy about a gun. A hint of belly though...
Jodie's just not the light comedy kind of actor, is she?

I agree with reelgal - I don't want to see Jodi as a vigilante. There's enough violence.
