And Jodie Foster was seen under much more casual circumstances on Wednesday, when she was spotted with for youngest son Kit Bernard Foster, 19, in New York City’s West Village neighborhood.

The double Oscar winner, 58, peered under her sunglasses as she walked by, dressed in a loose-fitting blue dress and black sandals.

Jodie’s sundress had white buttons down the front and fine pleats at the waist.

She rolled the sleeves of her dress up to her elbows.

The accused star also wore a black backpack.

She wore her dirty blond hair parted to the side and behind her ears for the rare sighting.

Her son Kit, 19, wore a white T-shirt with a howling gray wolf on it, along with gray shorts.

He wore black glasses and at one point pulled a blue mask under his chin.

Kit was also found to be holding the envelope for a ballot paper.

The pair were spotted with another woman on their way to the post office, most likely Jodie’s ex-partner and the boy’s other parent, Cydney Bernard.
