Jodie Foster received her first star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

And on hand to celebrate her new star on the Walk of Fame yesterday in Hollywood, was former Panic Room co-star Kristen Stewart – who gave a heart-warming speech in honour of the 53-year-old Oscar-winning actress.

The Twilight star took to the podium and said;

Of all the examples that I could have had at such an impressionable age, there’s nothing self-serving about her. She cares about people, she is quite the opposite of the type of person that is gravitated towards being an actress.We identified that in each other immediately.”

Foster opened up to Variety recently about why she waited to accept the honour after being in the industry for 50 years.

I made this conscious decision that I didn’t want to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard unless it was in a conjunction with a movie I was directing.”

Jodie finally reached her goal as her highly anticipated thriller Money Monster starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

I don’t know why that was important to me; it seems silly, but that’s why I waited all these years.”
