Confusing Hollyweird With Reality

6/6/18 Indiewire interviewing Jodie Foster about gun control:
“I had a lot of thoughts in terms of the power of the instrument and why it’s so problematic that human beings should have an instrument of death at their fingertips so freely when we are emotional human beings,” Foster said. “I mean, I’d be much more comfortable having robots have them, but we are designed to have emotions that overflow and that are not guided by our heads … To have sentient beings that are completely and entirely guided by their emotions have the power to administer life or death using one kilowatt of energy in a nanosecond is just unfathomable with me.”
News for you, Ms. Foster.  Real people are not like Weinstein and the rest of Hollyweird.

Was she also talking about cars, trucks, gasoline, kitchen knives, sticks and fists? Why this fixation with a single form of human destruction?

In her mind, was it really an Edenic Camelot before individual firearms were invented? no strife, no conflict, no arguments,
no murder out in the fields?
Stupid woman.

"...we are designed to have emotions that overflow and that are not guided by our heads." --Jodie Foster, speaking about herself.

I have enjoyed her performances in several films. She wasn't at her best in "The Brave One," where she bought a gun off the street in NYC after being rejected in a gun shop because selling her one is illegal without waiting periods, background checks, etc. Immediately I knew we were in a fantasy film, which was confirmed by the way she physically beat up big strong men who were ex-cons. That film was a feminist remake of Bronson's "Death Wish" only starring a slight woman, and was a "guns are bad" platform.

I'd have more respect for her if she refused any roles where she's supposed to carry or use a gun, but she is a hypocrite like most in Hollyweird.
