During an interview for The Guardianthe actress Jodie Fosterstarring in the biopic Unsinkable on Netflix, and the next season of True Detective for HBO, expressed her opinion on Gen Z actors. According to her, they are a little too picky about working conditions: “They are very annoying, especially at work. They are in fashion ‘Nah, I’m not feeling it today, I’ll come at 10:30,’” she laughs.

Also attacking them for their lack of rigor in written expression, which would lack professionalism, she gives another example: “In the emails, I tell them that everything is grammatically incorrect, and I ask if they have proofread? And they answer ‘Why should I do this? Isn’t that a bit limiting?’”

The actress nevertheless knows how to put things into perspective and in no way condemns young people as a whole. On the contrary, having herself started her career in her childhood, she makes it her mission to meet young actors and support them. Recently, for example, she contacted Bella Ramseythe flagship actress of The Last of Us to meet her.
