Jodie Foster won a Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in the legal drama “The Mauritanian,” where she plays the lawyer of a man imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay. Now, Jodie Foster winning an award isn’t unusual — she’s an actress and director with an incredible career that’s spanned decades. She’s been in “Taxi Driver,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Contact,” and has directed episodes of “Black Mirror” and “House of Cards.” Her trophy case is pretty full.
No, what’s unusual is that she thanked Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during her acceptance speech.

Now, upon further review, there are at least two connections here. One, Shailene Woodley, who is engaged to Rodgers, is one of Foster’s co-stars. Two, Jodie Foster is a huge Packers fan — and Rodgers thanked her during his NFL MVP acceptance speech earlier this month.

Foster was coy when addressing Rodgers thanking her on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying that she didn’t know Rodgers, that the Woodley connection was a coincidence, and that she’d thank him next time she got a chance. Well, she got a chance and kept her promise.
