Jodie Foster 'turns down autobiography deal'

Jodie Foster has turned down a large sum to write her memoirs.

The famously private actress was reportedly offered a "ridiculous" amount of cash to open up about her life in a new book. However, she decided she didn't want to discuss personal details - such as her sexual orientation or who fathered her sons.

"Jodie's such a private person that no amount of money could tempt her to expose her life to the public," a source told National Enquirer.

A publisher was said to be desperate to sign up Jodie, whose life has been a rollercoaster. She starred as a prostitute in 1972 movie Taxi Driver when she was just 13.

In the 80s she was charged with possessing a small amount of cocaine and also became the target of a stalker called John Hinckley Jr. who attempted to assassinate US President Ronald Reagan to impress her.

She was also followed by another stalker while studying at Yale University and refuses to talk about either of them in interviews.
