In accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes last night, Jodie Foster explained and defended why she has zealously guarded her privacy for so many years, recognizing that she has bucked the trend or expectation of celebrity tell-all’s.

“Privacy. Someday, in the future, people will look back and remember how beautiful it once was.”

  1. This story reminds of a bumper sticker I recently came upon (google “Know privacy. Know freedom.”) We’re letting our most precious freedom slip away. Nay, we’re volunteering it away.

  2. Not all of us volunteer it away. I was in a store with my kid and after she completed a cash transaction at the register, the clerk asked her for her zip code “No,” she said. He then asked her for her e-mail address. “No,” she said, “I’m not giving you any information.” I was so proud. 🙂

  3. I’m proud for her, too! I remember a time when “lockdown” was associated only with prisons. Kids these days are being trained to duck and cover for “terror.” I’d have a hard time being a parent and staying calm at PTA meetings. You’re more patient than I could ever be. It’s been a pleasure following your blog for years now.
