Jodie Foster's best years may be ahead of her.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a win for the acclaimed star would put her in extremely good company. Only eight other actors have received three or more Oscars for acting: Ingrid Bergman, Walter Brennan, Daniel-Day Lewis, Frances McDormand, Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, and Katharine Hepburn.

But Jodie has gotten to a point in her career where she doesn't necessarily need to work all the time, which points to how financially comfortable she is.

"Sometimes I go through years where I just don't wanna act for a while, or I don't find anything. I'll read a perfectly good script about a perfectly good thing that I should be interested in, and I just don't care," she has said.
