Jodie Foster thinks she'll be offered ''much more interesting'' roles when she's in her 60s and 70s.
Jodie Foster is ''super-excited'' about making movies in her 70s.
The 55-year-old actress-and-director has just made her first film in five years, 'Hotel Artemis', but isn't too worried about the fact she's currently got nothing else in the pipeline as she thinks the more interesting roles are some way down the line.
She said: ''I like to wait. And you know, I'm super-excited to be acting in my 60s and 70s. I think the roles will be so much more interesting!''
And the 'Money Monster' filmmaker admitted she turned to directing in recent years because she was at a difficult age for acting.
She told The Guardian newspaper: ''Being in your 50s is a transitional period for actors - you're not old enough to play the old characters and not young enough to play the young ones, so I felt like, OK, this is my time to direct.
''It's just what happens - it's normal. There are just not that many roles for this age. But I anticipated it and I feel like I made hay in my younger years and I can express myself by directing. But once in a while something original comes along that isn't just another franchise.''
Jodie thinks she could have made more movies but is proud she'd been ''discerning'' and only worked when projects interested her.
She said: ''I was never interested in a career for a career's sake. I just wanted to tell the stories I find interesting and I wasn't very good playing the girlfriend, so, nope, I never did that. I just worked when I found something that moved me.
''It's true, I probably worked less than others, but I'd rather be more discerning. The industry has changed a lot recently, with the end of the studio system, the rise of superheroes and streaming. But the only thing I trust is the quality of stories, and I decided I would focus on that.
''Some of my movies haven't worked, but at least I held to the same principle. That's why I'm not the richest actor, or the most successful. But I think I've had the longest career.''
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
