Foster’s star in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX will be the 2580th officials at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce have approved.

We have been waiting for a long time for Jodie Foster to set a date for her star and are thrilled that the time has come,” Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said.

She is a great role model for women and we are proud to add her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

Foster’s on-screen daughter in Panic Room, Kristen Stewart, will assist in the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard on May 4.

In total, Foster has appeared in more than 40 films and in 2013 she was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for Lifetime Achievement.

Foster, who’s been busy directing upcoming drama film, Money Monster, recently talked to the New York Times about “not talking about her private life”.

I never will talk about marriage and friends,” she said. “There are only so many steps I can take to protect people I love.

There’s only so much I can do to keep them safe. It’s kind of a horrible feeling to know that if somebody’s close to you, you put them in danger of being hurt, of being sullied – trivialised – just by virtue of knowing you.”

Foster married actress, artist and former DIVA cover star Alexandra Hedison in 2014.
