You've Been Blown Off by Jodie Foster

Hey, Jodie Foster! Hang out with us!
No? Maybe some other time.

We can take a hint. Even Jodie Foster needs some fresh air and some alone time.

It's just that... we grew up together. We first knew Jodie when she was just The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane. But she always did keep to herself.

And even back then Jodie was used to having the house all to herself. If only because her parents were dead, but the girl does love the quiet.

Now it's getting harder and harder to stay in contact with her.

She's always off in her own little world. She'll do just about anything to escape.

She should really get out more. But even when she does Jodie's always drawn to prison cells, basements, airplanes, tunnels, pool halls, and if you're really unlucky, a dark alley. Jodie feels comfortable in the dark. Even though awful things always seem to happen there...

Sorry to sneak up on you like that, but...

We're worried about you, Jodie.
We hardly get to see you anymore!

But we trust that she'll still put on a brave face and take to the streets eventually.

So perhaps she just prefers a night in... But if it was up to Jodie she'd never leave the house. And for that matter, even if it wasn't up to her...

Don't panic, Jodie. Just call us when you get back from your "trip." Whenever.

If and when we never see Jodie again, we'll know she has retreated to the woods to live a solitary life. But at least we know she's getting some fresh air.

I recall seeing her in a bank recently, dressed to the nines but she was cold as ice.

As cold as ice and willing to sacrifice... our love... over Jodie's love of staying indoors.

Brilliant! Loved her in Inside Man
