The former child star-turned-Oscar winner will be saluted on Hollywood Boulevard on 4 May (16) by her Panic Room castmate Kristen Stewart, who will help induct her former screen mum.

Jodie's star in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX will be the 2,580th officials at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce have approved.

"We have been waiting for a long time for Jodie Foster to set a date for her star and are thrilled that the time has come," Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez tells WENN. "She is a great role model for women and we are proud to add her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."
