The actress slash director has to stand by Mel Gibson - after all, her new film The Beaver stars him!
He's the "easiest, nicest person I've ever worked with" Jodie Foster tells the October 2010 issue of More Magazine. She goes on to say the following:
- "The second I met him [working on Maverick in 1994], I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life.' When you love a friend, you don't abandon them when they are struggling. Of course, Mel is an undeniably gifted actor and director, and The Beaver is one of his most powerful and moving performances. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment."
Foster, who also directed, plays Gibson's wife in the film. Mel himself plays a man suffering from catatonic depression who starts communicating via a beaver puppet (in an Aussie-Cockney accent) on his hand.
Wonder if this movie will actually work!
