Jodie Foster - Jodie Foster to receive lifetime achievement award at Golden Globes

Jodie Foster is to receive a lifetime achievement award at the 2013 Golden Globes.

The 49-year-old star has been chosen to get the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th annual ceremony for her work as an actress, director and producer.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) - which organises the annual prize-giving ceremony - picked Foster to receive the accolade because she is ''is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career''.

HFPA president Aida Takla-O'Reilly said in a statement: ''Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She's truly one of a kind.''

The announcement was made on Thursday morning (01.11.10) by 'Twilight' actress Kristen Stewart and 'The Mentalist' star Simon Baker at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award is chosen by the board of directors for the Foreign Press Association - which includes 90 reporters who cover Hollywood for overseas outlets.

Previous recipients of the prestigious accolade include Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Barbra Streisand.

Foster began her career at the age of three appearing in adverts and she made her big screen debut at the age of 13 in 'Taxi Driver', in which she played the controversial character Iris, a pre-teen prostitute.

She has gone on to star in over 40 films and won her two Best Actress Academy Awards for her performances as a rape victim in 'The Accused' and as FBI Agent Clarice Starling in 'The Silence of the Lambs'.

The 2013 Golden Globes will take place on January 13, 2013, and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
