Transcript for Jodie Foster Defends Kristen Stewart
Jodie foster has come out swinging in defense of kristen stewart. The two of them, you might remember, co-starred in "panic room," a decade ago. And now, foster is blasting everyone, who is attacking stewart, her former co-star, after her split with robert pattinson. It's the latest in the saga unfolding in the spotlight. No matter how hard robert pattinson may be trying to shift the focus from his romantic life and on to his new film, the spotlight remains on his very public heartbreak. With you and kristen having trouble, it's like charles and di having trouble. Reporter: The actor was blind sided by "new york times" reporter, david carr. I wouldn't go that far. Reporter: It's just the kind of focus on his love life he told "gma" he's hoping to avoid. I take it you don't want to talk too much about it. Is that the way you handle all of this craziness? By just trying to put a complete -- it's a different thing. You get into it to do movies. I've never been interested in trying to sell my personal life. And that's really the only reason people try to bring it up. So, you know, the reason why you go on tv, to promote movies. Reporter: Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend and "twilight" girlfriend's kristen stewart's professional life that's come under scrutiny. Has kristen cheating knocked her out of the sequel? Reporter: A swirl of media reports saying stewart had been dropped from the sequel to "snow white and the huntsman." But later in the day, universal pictures was quick to deny those reports. Releasing this statement, any reports that kristen stewart has been dropped are false. And stewart did get a big show of support yesterday from jodie foster, who co-starred with a then-11-year-old stewart, in 2002's "panic room." You have to stop. Reporter: Foster wrote a moving post on "the daily beast," about the perils of childhood stardom. And blasted the immediatey for its relentless coverage of the young star. See, they're just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process. Jodie foster went through a lot all through her years. She's telling kristen stewart, her friend, I feel for you. I want to help you. This, too, shall pass. Reporter: Foster writing in that piece, if I were a young actor today, I would quit before I started.
