It comes to no surprise that the uber-private Jodie Foster owns in a super-private home. But like most stars, she couldn’t escape the headlines, even in the Hollywood Hills home.
Foster was set to play the lead in “Double Jeopardy” when, according to People magazine, producer Leonard Goldberg got a note saying she was dropping out of the movie “for medical reasons.” Foster offered no further explanation at the time.
But word quickly spread that she was pregnant with her first son, Charlie, raising questions about paternity and conception. Fortunately, Foster had an escape from the paparazzi at the Spanish villa she had just purchased, which could be discretely accessed from a rear-gated driveway.
Although it’s privacy was undoubtedly appealing to the star for some time, Foster recently listed the home,, located at 9219 Flicker Way, Los Angeles, CA 90069, for $6.399 million.
The home, located in the distinguished Bird Streets, has 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half-baths and an attached guest suite — plenty of room for her new baby and girlfriend at the time, Cydney Bernard.
“The Silence of the Lambs” star reportedly updated part of the home soon after she bought it in 1997, while maintaining its 1930s Spanish style. Overhead beams, brick patios and a backyard pool are a few highlights, as well as a large media screening/kids’ play room.
With her second son, Christopher “Kit” Foster, entering the teenage years, Foster isn’t an empty nester quite yet. Last year she bought a new Beverly Hills home for $11.75 million, which will likely become her new primary residence.
