Jodie Foster says her life is her kids

10/05/2005 at 06:00 AM ET

Oscar winning actress Jodie Foster says life as a single mom is an important job in itself.  "I thought that I was going to have to figure [my kids] and my life," she said. "What I didn’t realize is…that the rest of my life would become so little of a priority."

Jodie is raising her two sons, 7-year-old Charles and 4-year-old Kit, alone. She also plays a single (widowed) mother on her current film, Flightplan.

I watched her on the “actor’s studio” show and was very impressed. She is SO down to earth…but she didn’t talk much at all about her kids..I suppose for privacy reasons, of course. Wonder if the two boys have the same father, or if they were both anonymous donors…?

I can’t remember – did she have invitro or did she adopt? I don’t remember ever seeing her pregnant – but then she is a very private person.

She had artifical insemination and I agree she keeps her life strictly private. She’s never revealed who the father is for both Charles and Kit and we don’t know if it was by the same person or not. I’ve seen a couple of shots of her children before (when they were babies) but other than that there’s ot much about her. She’s a great actress though and I definately respect her.

I saw recent pictures of them somewhere (they aren’t photographed by the paparazzi much because she is very protective of them) and they don’t look anything alike. But, that in itself, isn’t an indicator of whether they have the same father or not. I read she had artificial insemination and, as far as I have heard, she hasn’t been connected to any man in regards to a relationship. She really embraces motherhood and is fiercely protective. I really admire her for both of her great roles: as a mother and as an actor. She’s always been one of my favorite celebs.
