Kristen Stewart is not being lectured by Jodie Foster about her lifestyle, despite false report. One of this week's tabloids claims Foster has been begging the younger actress to stop partying and having romantic flings. Gossip Cop has learned the story is totally made-up.
"Jodie To Kristen: Get It Together!" reads a headline in the latest issue of OK! Foster and Stewart have shared a close bond since playing mother and daughter in 2002's Panic Room, and according to the magazine, the Oscar winner is feeling particularly protective these days. "Jodie's urged her to stop drinking and chain-smoking, and suggested she could ease up on the over-the-top PDA too," a supposed source tells the outlet.
The suspicious tipster adds, "Jodie's only gotten involved because she cares about Kristen and is concerned her talent is being stifled by what's going on in her personal life." The alleged insider goes on to say that Stewart's other pals hope Foster will be the one who gets through to her. "Kristen doesn't respect too many people in the business, but Jodie is one of them," adds the seemingly phony source.
The tabloid's bogus story is predicated on the idea that Stewart's life is spiraling out of control, which simply isn't the case. For starters, the actress's career is on fire. Stewart attended the Toronto International Film Festival this week to promote her Jean Seberg biopic. The actress also has two major blockbusters lined up, the Charlie's Angels reboot and the submarine thriller Underwater. Her talent is hardly being "stifled," as the outlet puts it.
As for Stewart's "partying" and "PDA," the tabloid seems to be basing this on the actress being spotted at the occasional nightclub, as well as kissing screenwriter Dylan Meyer one month after she was photographed kissing ex-girlfriend Stella Maxwell. That's hardly a sign she's out of control.
In fact, Stewart said in a Harper's Bazaar interview earlier this month that she's gotten bad advice about who she should be seen with in public. "I have fully been told, 'If you just like do yourself a favor, and don't go out holding your girlfriend's hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.' I don't want to work with people like that," said the actress. Foster, who came out at the 2013 Golden Globe awards, isn't one of the people who's told Stewart to refrain from PDA with women.
Gossip Cop is told by a source close to the situation that the magazine's report is completely untrue. Back in May, we busted OK!'s sister publication, Star, for making up a similar story about Stewart's friends telling her to stop partying. The premise wasn't true then and it's no more accurate now, despite Foster being dragged into the narrative. Gossip Cop also called out OK! for falsely claiming Stewart was pursuing a romance with Cate Blanchett, so the magazine has zero insight into her relationships with older actresses in the industry.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
