On the occasion of Pink October, the most Francophile of American actresses, Jodie Foster, came to Monaco to receive an award that rewards her commitment against breast cancer. She took the opportunity to stay a few days on the Rock.

On October 4th, in the Pink October framework, which shows its support for all breast cancer victims, most of the facades of the most emblematic buildings in the Principality were illuminated in pink: the Prince’s Palace, the Odeon Tower , the Oceanographic Museum, the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the National Council of Monaco, and the Monaco Yacht Club. On this occasion, the Rock hosted an international star, actress and director Jodie Foster. The day before, on October 3rd, she attended the screening of the documentary “Be Natural,” which she co-produced at the Beaux-Arts of Monaco cinema with HSH Prince Albert II and directors Pamela B. Green and Anne Fontaine. A film that tells the complex story of the very first woman filmmaker, Alice Guy-Blaché.

Reward and tourism

The next day, October 4th, for the 9th Pink Ribbon Awards, Jodie Foster, accompanied by her wife actress Alexandra Hedison, received an award for her commitment to breast cancer, which has mobilized her for many years. She took the opportunity to make a speech in French, a language that she has mastered perfectly from an early age. She then stayed a few days on the Rock to do some sightseeing and reaffirm her fight among many others.
