Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster has been accused of attacking a 17-year-old boy in the parking lot of The Grove in Los Angeles last month. According to an incident report, the unidentified teen was taking pictures of Foster at the shopping mecca on May 29 when the Silence of the Lambs star “poked him on his chest” and grabbed “his left arm causing visible injury.”
“My son was at The Grove with his girlfriend and they were going to see a movie. He saw Jodie Foster and is a big fan so went over and took a picture of her,” the boy’s angry father yapped to RadarOnline.com Friday.
“She came after him, poked him in the chest and said, ‘Do you even have a mother you slime ball?”
“Jodie pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm,” he spat.
Jodie, on the other hand, spins quite a different tale. She denies attacking anyone, and instead claims that she was the one who was savagely stalked by the overzealous young pest!
A rep for the actress says the boy’s claims are a “fabrication” of what actually happened.
“This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo. He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet,” says Foster’s publicist. “He crowded her and her two young children and took photos of them the whole time. This guy’s behavior was completely inappropriate and the police report is a fabrication of the incident,” the rep adds.
