‘Really annoying’: Jodi Foster hates working with Gen Zers because they show up late and write sloppy emails

News & Politics

Hollywood movie star Jodi Foster criticized the young members of Gen Z for being sloppy in writing emails and showing up to work late.

Foster made the comments in an interview with the Guardian published on Saturday.

“They’re really annoying, especially in the workplace. They’re like, ‘Nah, I’m not feeling it today, I’m gonna come in at 10:30 a.m.,’ ” she said.

Gen Z is generally defined as referring to people born between the years of 1997 and 2012, and they’re also called “zoomers.”

The 61-year-old actress went on to register her complaints against the younger generation.

“Or, like, in emails, I’ll tell them, ‘This is all grammatically incorrect — did you not check your spelling?’ And they’re like, ‘Why would I do that, isn’t that kind of limiting?'” she said.

“They need to learn how to relax, how to not think about it so much, how to come up with something that’s theirs,” Foster continued. “I can help them find that, which is so much more fun than being, with all the pressure behind it, the protagonist of the story.”

Zoomers responding to a Reddit thread about working with older people documented their generational grievances.

“For younger people, the thumbs-up emoji is used to be really passive-aggressive,” read a response from a 24-year-old.

“It’s super rude if someone just sends you a thumbs up. So I also had a weird time adjusting because my workplace is the same,” they added.

A poll in 2023 found that 29% of Gen Z people said the government should install cameras in every home in order to avoid crime and abuse, while only 20% of respondents of an older generation agreed with the massive surveillance program.

Foster is best known for portraying FBI agent Clarise Starling in the blockbuster movie “The Silence of the Lambs” from 1991.
