Jodie Foster: “We are in an era of identity searching”
Ms. Foster, what fuels your decision making these days?
Lately, I’ve really understood in a really personal way how fear is the core emotion that creates every choice for us.
In what ways?
My mom has dementia and to watch as she shed part of her socialization… What we got back down to was this core of fear. Everything was about fear — to see how much fear is essential in who we are as animals is amazing. I grew up in a single parent home house so my mom is a huge part of my life, the most significant relationship in my life that will ever be. She is my work life, and that whole process from birth until the time that you say goodbye, I really understand from both sides, from a daughter’s side and also from having two children.
Guillermo del Toro: “I am not meta, I am really earnest”
Mr. del Toro, have you ever had a paranormal experience?
I saw a UFO when I was a teenager! And I have heard two ghosts in my life.
Really? How was that?
I reacted with great fear! I was very scared to see the UFO in the sky! It really gives you a sense of how all the natural rules can break… Suddenly you’re in front of something that is impossible, so your first reaction is shock.
