Method Man Said He Froze Up In Front Of Jodie Foster During A Read

Power Book II: Ghost” star Clifford “Method Man” Smith recently visited “Jimmy Fallon” and told a story about him freezing up in front of Jodie Foster during a read.

After complimenting Meth on crushing it with his acting, Jimmy asked him about auditions that didn’t go so well.

Meth responded:

Alright, so I had to audition for a movie called “Money Monster”.

Jodie Foster directed it. George Clooney, I believe, was starring in it.

And yeah, I had a read.

So I’m super prepared, right?…

I’m sitting in the waiting room for, you know, for the read.

A couple of producers show up then one more producer shows up, and he’s like, ‘Meth, you’re my guy! I can’t wait till you go up in there. Kill it Meth! No, no worries whatsoever. Just kill it!’

I’m like alright this is my guy here. I’m gonna kill it for this guy.

But what I didn’t know was there were waiting for one more person.

And that last person showed up about two minutes later, and it was Jodie Foster.

Now for me, it was like same reaction, oh, man, now it’s Jodie Foster in the room, and, you know, I’m a big fan.

Her work speaks for itself.

I get up in this room, Jimmy, oh, my God!

It started off good, cause, you know, then. I caught a brain fart.

From there I couldn’t remember a thing.

So, it gets worst though. I start sweating. I have a little mini-anxiety attack. 

Start sweating crazy, so now I’m looking for anything in the room to dry myself off with.

The guy has a box of Kleenex. If you know anything about Kleenex, when they get wet, what happens?… 

So I’m trying to dry myself off with the Kleenex. I got paper stuck to my face.

All I can think is Jodie Foster thinks I’m, like, this idiot right now.

And I kindly excused myself and walked out, that was it.

Meth said that he’s never seen anyone in that room again, and he hopes to get another opportunity to work with Jodie Foster.
