I had the opportunity to talk first-hand with Foster about Gibson and her reasons for casting him in “The Beaver,” a film that Foster both directed and co-stars in as Gibson’s wife.
In the first portion of a multi-part video interview, the actress explains what made her immediately think of her “Maverick” co-star for the role of a deeply depressed man who turns to a beaver puppet for solace.
“It’s a film about a man who’s struggling,” she says. “And I think that he is someone who has struggled in his life with many things, and who’s really interested in coming to terms with that.”
The rest of my interview with Foster will be posted here in Celebritology in the coming days.
