Life and career

Foster was born in Los Angeles, California where she attended the exclusive prep school, the Lycée Français de Los Angeles, before going on to Yale University where she earned a BA in Literature, graduating magna cum laude.

Foster has made more than 50 film appearances and television since the age of eight. She began her career at the age of 3 in television commercials and then went on to appear in a variety of television series. In film, at the age of 12, she earned a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Martin Scorsese's film, Taxi Driver.

Foster is intensively private about her personal life. Having given birth to two sons, she has never revealed the identity of the father of the boys or if the boys even share the same father. Because of this and because she has co-habitated with a female companion for several years, many suspect she is lesbian, though she personally has never made any public statement regarding her sexual orientation. Her brother's biography identifies her as such, but since the book is unauthorized, it is highly suspect.
