<br>
Sure, Jodie Foster's won two Academy Awards (for "The Accused" and "The Silence of the Lambs"). Speaks fluent French. Graduated from Yale. Directed feature films. And scored numerous times at the box office.<br>

She's been raped several times in the movies, fought off thugs invading her house, scrambled around a plane with dogged determination in order to find her missing child and kicked more butt than Jackie Chan and Jet Li combined.<br>
<br>
Even in her latest film, the family adventure "Nim's Island," which opens Friday, her character, novelist Alex Rover, finds herself thrust in several dangerous situations.<br>
