Jodie Foster is apparently one of the Hollywood stars who isn’t the biggest fan of superhero movies. In an interview with El magazine The Oscar winner explained that she feels like the Marvel and DC films are just a “phase.”

“This stage took too long for me. But it’s a phase, and I’ve seen so many different phases,” she said. “I hope people get tired of it soon. I admire good movies like Iron Man, Black Panther and The Matrix.

Jodie Foster added in an interview: “But that’s not why I became an actress. And these films don’t change my life. I hope there’s room for everything else.” The 61-year-old actor is not the first star to speak negatively about superhero films. Star directors Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and John Woo, among others, have expressed their disapproval in the past.

This is Jodie Foster’s favorite movie.

Jodie Foster also told Elle what kind of movies she loves. “Everything Everywhere at Once” may always remain her favorite movie, she said. She explained that this is a movie she watches over and over again when she feels depressed or sad. The film also connects her with her two sons.

“The first time I saw him was with one of my sons, and we held hands and pinched each other and cried for 45 minutes afterward,” she said. “And a week later I saw him with my other son and it just opened up a portal of connection and understanding and hope. He started telling me all the things he never told me about his high school and we left crying and talking openly through the rain. And I thought, “This is what movies can do.”

Jodie Foster is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. She has already won the Oscar for Best Actress twice: in 1989 for “The Accused” and in 1992 for “The Silence of the Lambs.” Will there be another golden boy coming soon? She is currently being celebrated for her role in the Netflix film Nyad alongside Annette Bening.
