Foster: I’m not retiring

Jodie Foster has no plans to retire from acting despite making the suggestion at the Golden Globes.
The veteran actress received the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Los Angeles ceremony last night.
During her speech, Jodie seemed to hint she might be taking a break from movie making.
“This feels like the end of one era, and the beginning of something else. Scary and exciting, and now what? Well, I may never be up on this stage again, on any stage for that matter. I will continue to tell stories, it’s just that from now on I may be holding a different talking stick,” she said.
The speech caused a frenzy over Twitter and around the web.
Fans speculated if the Silence of the Lambs star was quitting acting.
Her publicist put those rumours to rest on Monday and said Jodie has no such plans.
“She is definitely not retiring from acting," Jennifer Allen told the New York Daily News on Monday.
Jodie, 50, also backtracked backstage. She said the simply meant she was entering a new chapter in her career with the honour.
“I could never stop acting. You’d have to drag me behind a team of horses," she said in the press room.
She did say she would like to pursue directing.
“I’m actually more into it than I have ever been,” she said.
