Jodie Foster says the COVID-19 pandemic has made her sick of watching movies.
The 58-year-old actress - who has two sons, Charles and Kit - admits she reached for the remote during her many days at home because of the coronavirus crisis but after about six months she got bored with film viewing and watching television, something which surprised her.
Speaking to Radio Times, she said: "Strangely, I got sick of watching TV about six months into the pandemic. I even got tired of watching movies, which is something I’d never experienced before. I’ve become a bit more judicial about what I watch.”
In January 2021, Jodie's iconic film 'The Silence of the Lambs' celebrated its 30th anniversary.
Jodie portrayed FBI trainee in director Jonathan Demme's 1991 horror flick - which is based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Harris - opposite Sir Anthony Hopkins as imprisoned cannibal killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who is helping her catch at-large serial killer Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine).
'The Silence of the Lambs' was a critical and commercial success and it earned Academy Award wins in the main five categories: Best Picture, Best Director for Demme, Best Actor for Hopkins, Best Actress for Foster and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Jodie - who won her first Best Actress Oscar for playing a rape survivor in 1988 drama 'The Accused' - can scarcely believe it's been three decades since the movie hit cinemas and she admits revisiting the role this year for several celebratory events has made her worried she'll never better her performance as Clarice.
She said: "Where did the time go? I’ve been doing a few things to celebrate with Tony. We both have this feeling of sharing this extraordinary moment where we were both at our best.
“Sometimes I think, ‘Oh my gosh. I hope that’s not the last time I will be at my peak.’ It’s a tough one to top."
