Jodie Foster started acting at a young age— a sign that she was a bright child. Jodie was actually a lot more than bright— she was a genius. Jodie taught herself how to read before she was three years old. She juggled her career as a child actress while attending Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a French prep school, where she was the valedictorian.
To get away from the business, Jodie pursued a bachelor’s degree in literature and French at Yale. Jodie was about to graduate when she decided to file a leave of absence after Ronald Reagan’s shooter, John Hinckley Jr., expressed his fascination towards her, giving her some unwanted publicity.
Well, now we know that Jodie has a wonderful back-up career that involves something French, if she decides to leave Hollywood and take her talents elsewhere.
