Born in Los Angeles, Calif., on Nov. 19, 1962 Attended Lycee Francais in Los Angeles, Calif., in 1980. Graduated as class valedictorian. Attended Yale University in New Haven, Conn. Majored in literature and graduated magna cum laude in 1985. Her mother Brandy managed her through age 20.

Foster began in commercials, most notably baring her buns at age three in a classic ad for Coppertone sun tanning products. She appeared as a regular and in guest shots in series TV and made several features for Disney.

In 1976, she left an indelible impression with her controversial performance in "Taxi Driver" as the teenage prostitute who inspires Robert De Niro's deranged personal crusade. Foster followed that Oscar-nominated performance with appearances in several features including the gangster musical spoof "Bugsy Malone" playing Miss Tallulah, a bawdy speakeasy queen. The following year, she took the title role of a young murderer in "The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane."

In 1980, she took the role of a teen runaway who joins up with a couple of carnival hustlers in "Carny." In 1981, she survived a spate of unwanted publicity surrounding John Hinckley Jr.'s assassination attempt on President Reagan, which he claimed was done to impress Foster.

In 1984, while studying at Yale, she squeezed in appearances in films and TV, most notably as a member of an unconventional family in the film "The Hotel New Hampshire."

In 1987, she worked in "Five Corners." In 1988 and 1991, she consolidated her reputation with Oscar-winning portrayals of a rape victim in "The Accused," and a rookie FBI agent in Jonathan Demme's psychological thriller, "The Silence of the Lambs" respectively.

Also in 1991, she had her directorial debut with "Little Man Tate." Foster chose a subject close to home, a child prodigy who is caught in a tug-of-war between his working-class mother (played by Foster) and his teacher (Dianne Wiest).

In 1992, Foster formed a three-year production deal with Polygram Filmed Entertainment, in which they were committed to financing three films (under her Egg Pictures banner) in the $25 million range and three in the $10 million to $15 million, plus an extra $10 million in print and promotion. One proviso was that Foster could choose whether to act in, direct or simply produce these films, gaining rare control and flexibility for an actor and a woman in Hollywood.

The same year, she worked as a prostitute in Woody Allen's "Shadows and Fog," and played opposite Richard Gere in the costume drama, "Sommersby."

In 1994, her screen leading man was Mel Gibson in the Western spoof "Maverick." Also in this year she had her first Egg Pictures effort, "Nell," in which she portrays a backwoods hermit who speaks in an invented tongue. Once again, Foster walked away with an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

In 1995, Foster made her second directorial effort (in which she did not appear) in the ensemble comedy "Home for the Holidays," about a recently fired woman who returns to her childhood home to celebrate Thanksgiving with her eccentric family. The film received mixed critical reviews, but Foster's sure handling of the actors (including Holly Hunter, Anne Bancroft and Robert Downey Jr.) was cited.

In 1997, she returned to acting to tackle the role of a scientist who receives signals that may be from space aliens in "Contact."

In 1999, she starred in the title role in "Anna and the King" for 20th Century Fox, with director Andy Tenant.

In 2002, Foster produced and co-starred as a one-legged nun in "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys" which premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. She also starred in David Fincher's box-office hit, "Panic Room."
