Jodie Foster has left a major mark on Hollywood over her career, and soon she will leave a literal imprint!

On Tuesday, Turning Classic Movies announced that Foster, 61, will have her hand and footprint plastered into the ground outside the area's famous TCL Chinese Theatre during the 15th annual TCM Classic Film Festival on April 19. Foster's 1991 classic The Silence of the Lambs will also screen as part of the upcoming festival, with the actress herself introducing the movie.

“The truth is Jodie Foster deserves a hand and footprint ceremony solely for her work in 1976 alone – films she made when she was 13 years old – Taxi Driver, Bugsy Malone, Freaky Friday and The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane. You could see her range already,” TCM Classic Film Festival and film critic Ben Mankiewicz said in a statement Tuesday. "Nearly 50 years later, we have an answer to this question: ‘What is a Jodie Foster character?’ The answer is: There is nothing she can’t play."

The TCL Chinese Theatre opened in 1927 and has seen dozens of stars plant their hands and feet into wet cement in its nearly 100 years-long history. The TCM Classic Film Festival has honored 11 stars with hand and footprint ceremonies outside the theater in recent years, most recently honoring Lily Tomlin (2022), Billy Crystal (2019), Cicely Tyson (2017), Carl and Rob Reiner (2017) and Francis Ford Coppola (2016), per a release.

Foster has been acting since she was a child.

She is currently nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the upcoming 96th Academy Awards for her performance in last year's Nyad; the nomination is her fifth.

The actress' career longevity means that the 47 years separating her Oscar nominations for Taxi Driver and Nyad are the longest time between an actor's first nomination at the awards ceremony and their most recent. Katharine Hepburn was nominated for two awards 48 years apart, as The Rake recently reported in a feature on Foster.

“That’s cool, I like that statistic. Look, I worked in the sixties, the seventies, the eighties, the nineties, the noughts, the tens and the twenties... That’s amazing, all those different eras," she told that outlet of the statistic.

Foster also recently starred in HBO's most recent season of True Detective. Her hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Calif., takes place April 19.
