In a new piece for The Daily Beast, Foster defended her former Panic Roomcostar.
She wrote, "We've all seen the headlines at the check-out counter. 'Kristen Stewart Caught.' We've all thumbed the glossy pages here and there. 'Kris and Rob a couple?' We all catch the snaps. 'I like that dress. I hate the hair. Cute couple. Bad shoes.' But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process."
Jodie compared the scrutiny to what she dealt with as a young star, noting that back then, "You could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life."
However, she noted -- "If I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety."
