Jodie Foster will receive the 2013 Cecil B. Demille award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday.
Foster, 50, will be the fourth-youngest person to receive the honor and follows in the footsteps of recent honorees Al Pacino, Warren Beatty and Morgan Freeman. The honor was announced at a press conference Thursday by Foster's Panic Room co-star Kristen Stewart, along with Simon Baker.
"This is a special moment for me," Stewart, 22, said at the news conference. "She's been really important in my life for a long time."
Foster famously defended Stewart against intense media scrutiny over the summer shortly after it was revealed Stewart had cheated on her longtime boyfriend, Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, with married director Rupert Sanders. "If I were a young actor today, I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don't think I could survive it emotionally," Foster wrote in an essay for The Daily Beast back in August.
