"I watched 'Taxi Driver' when I was far too young to watch it," Kristen Stewart said, referring to Foster's 1976 movie directed by Martin Scorsese.

"And I was already saying Jodie Foster was my favorite actress before I was cast as her daughter. Technically she was cast as my mom. She came onto the movie late and I was there to show her the ropes," she added.

"There's nothing self-serving about her. She cares about people. She's quite the opposite of the type of person that is gravitated towards being an actress," she said.
