22 Vintage Photos of a Young and Beautiful Jodie Foster on the Set of 'Taxi Driver' (1976)

Jodie Foster was 13 years old when she made Taxi Driver, a film that's now considered a classic but that was then Martin Scorsese's fourth feature. At the time, Foster had already made a slew of children's films and was more of a veteran than both her director or her costar Robert De Niro. But it was De Niro who taught her the alchemy of acting, that it could be more than just make-believe. Foster would go on to be nominated for her first Academy Award for that role, later winning two others for The Accused and Silence of the Lambs.

"I was 12 years old and had made more movies than anyone else on the film at that point," she said. "They were very uncomfortable about my character. Nobody knew how to direct me."

"Scorsese would say something like 'unzip his fly' and just start laughing and not know what to do so he would hand it over to Robert De Niro and then Robert would tell me what to do."

Here, below is a collection of 22 photos of a young Jodie Foster, who portrayed a 12-year-old prostitute in the 1976 movie Taxi Driver, which was directed by Martin Scorsese.


  1. The one common thread they share appears not so much their vocation but, some pretty bad eyebrows. Are those two things related?

  2. I was about to say this is like a museum of weird eyebrows.

  3. Prostitutes for the blind? Yikes

    I must admit that these women were not on the attractive side in the least, but with that said God made more average to unattractive than beautiful people on this planet..Its quite sad actually that many im sure were denied jobs based on their looks and no doubt any kind of educational background to pull themselves up...I'm sure their are still some pretty ugly prostitues in our day and age..

  5. Wow that look would strip paint

  6. I don't think men during war times could be too picky. Comfort comes in many forms.

  7. This is sad.

  8. OMG they were pretty homely

  9. I think going gay is a better option.
