29. Millie Bobby Brown wants Jodie Foster to direct an episode

While many of us aren’t famous or even work in the industry, there’s always someone out there who we admire. Whether it’s a famous actor or director, there’s always someone who, at one point or another, created something that really inspired you or worked on a project that really struck you. For example, I’m a big Hayao Miyazaki fan, just because I like the way he translates a story through the lens of a child. I mean, it doesn’t matter where your interests lie, you probably get the feeling …

For Millie Bobby Brown, it’s Jodie Foster.

As seen in the clip above, when the interviewer who they’d like to work with, Caleb McLaughlin very cutely cannot provide an answer. But Millie Bobby Brown is all over it. She immediately asks if she can name a director and drops Jodie Foster’s name — which, okay, sure. But for a kid, she goes pretty far back and brings up Panic Room, which starred Foster and a young Kristen Stewart. Apparently, MBB’s a big Kristen Stewart fan.

I’m going to attribute that to the fact that Kristen Stewart has a lot of things in common, like being a child actor and a little offbeat. To each his own.
