Exclusive: Jodie Foster on The Beaver and The X-Files

On talking puppets and killer tattoos

In her latest acting and directing project, The Beaver, Jodie Foster tells the story of a man (Mel Gibson) and his collapse into depression to the point that he develops another personality in the form of a talking beaver puppet that quickly winds up taking control of his life.

You can check out the full video interview with Foster and co-star Anton Yelchin over at Shock Till You Drop’s sister site,, but, as you can see in the video below, we couldn’t resist asking Ms. Foster about her previous on-screen relationship with an inanimate object’s imaginary personality: voicing a killer tattoo on a 1997 episode of “The X-Files” titled “Never Again”.
