Jodie Foster - Rob Lowe & Ryan Murphy Applaud Jodie Foster For Online Essay

Actress Jodie Foster has been applauded by her Hollywood peers Rob Lowe and Ryan Murphy for speaking out against the modern culture of celebrity and defending her Panic Room co-star Kristen Stewart.
Foster aired her thoughts on the cheating scandal surrounding the Twilight star in a lengthy commentary for news website TheDailyBeast.com on Wednesday (15Aug12), blasting the media for constantly hounding Stewart as she tries to deal with the public fall-out from her "indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
The Oscar winner, a former child star herself, sympathised with Stewart's personal troubles, writing, "There’s no guilt in acknowledging the human interest in public linens. It’s as old as the hills. Lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams. See, they’re just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process."
Foster also urged Stewart to stay strong, ignore the media storm and battle through her problems to rebuild her career - and the 49 year old's words of advice have won the movie veteran praise from the likes of Lowe and Glee creator Murphy.
Taking to his Twitter.com page, Lowe writes, "Love to see Jodie Foster trending (a hot topic on Twitter). She is what all actors should aspire to be. Talented. Low-key. Smart. Loyal."
Murphy brands her essay "amazing" and urges fans to check it out, while former One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush tweets, "Jodie Foster has some great things to say about young Hollywood & ridiculous KS (Kristen Stewart) gossip. What an inspiring woman."
Stewart's revelation last month (Jul12) appears to have ended her three-year romance with British actor Robert Pattinson.
