Jodie Foster Calls Teen's Claims She Attacked Him a 'Fabrication'

Originally posted 06/11/2010 01:45PM

Jodie Foster is speaking out against allegations that she attacked a young man outside an L.A. mall, telling PEOPLE the accusations and the police report filed by the teenager are a "fabrication" of what really happened.

"This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo," the actress's rep tells PEOPLE. "He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet."

According to a police report obtained by RadarOnline, the incident occurred May 29 at The Grove in L.A., where Foster was seeing a movie with her children. The alleged victim's father claims his 17-year-old son approached the Oscar-winning actress for a photo but she "came after him [and] poked him in the chest" and "pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm."

Hey Kathryn Bigelow, you hear those loud fans? One of them is none other than Jodie Foster.

Supporting what could be the first female win for the Best Director Oscar is especially easy for fellow director Foster, who hopes it will mean "more opportunities for women to direct."

"Am I going to be chanting, 'Kathryn Bigelow, Kathryn Bigelow, Kathryn Bigelow?' " Foster told PEOPLE of cheering the Hurt Locker director at the 25th Film Independent Spirit Awards Friday. "Listen, it's a great honor for any director: Male, female, carnivore, vegetarian. But I was thrilled to see a film of that caliber with such a strong hand as a director."

Added Foster: "This is clearly something that she's worked her entire life for."
