Flash forward 15 years. Two times Jodie Foster has won the Oscar. Two times she has played a prostitute on screen. The first time was already discussed in her first Oscar win for The Accused. The second time was for the film Shadows and Fog directed by Woody Allen. It is not like Jodie sought out to play a hooker again. When actors sign on to act in a Woody Allen film, they have no idea what the part is. They receive no script, no breakdown, not even the characters name. They just show up on set and find out. Jodie signed on to this film strictly for the opportunity to work with Woody Allen. This role amounts to nothing more than a cameo, as the part was very small.
