Jodie Foster - Jodie Foster to receive Golden Globes top honour

Jodie Foster is set to receive a Golden Globe lifetime achievement award.

The 'Silence Of The Lambs' actress will be awarded with the Cecil B DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes in 2013 to honour her 40-year career as an actress, director and film producer.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced: ''Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business.

''Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career. She's truly one of a kind.''

The 49-year-old actress kicked off her career in 1976 with an Oscar-nominated performance as a teenage prostitute in 'Taxi Driver', followed by successful roles in 'Bugsy Malone' and 'Freaky Friday'.

Jodie has appeared in over 40 films and has twice been awarded an Oscar, for 'The Accused' in 1988 and 1991's 'The Silence of The Lambs'.

The star has also dabbled in directing in recent years, with projects including 'Little Man Tate' and 'The Beaver', starring Mel Gibson.

Previous recipients of the Cecil B DeMille Award include Robert DeNiro, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Al Pacino and Morgan Freeman.
