Meg Foster was at London Film & Comic Con yesterday, and I was so excited to meet her. I had heard on various websites how nice she is to fans, but she exceeded my expectations so much - I think she is one of the loveliest actresses I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. From the moment I introduced myself to her, and got a bit choked up because I am such a fan of hers, she was hugging me, kissing me sweetly on the mouth, holding my hands and the two of us talked for about forty minutes or so. The people in line behind us were getting irritated and the assistant at her table tried a couple of times to get her to hurry up with me, but she wouldn't have it! "I pay no attention!" she said, and continued her conversation with me. It's one of the loveliest moments I have ever had with an actor, and I will never forget it. I went to say goodbye to her later that day, and she remembered my name and asked me for another hug and a kiss. Sweet, lovely and gracious woman - Meg, thank you so much! Barnaby, July 2013
I met Meg Foster at a wedding in August of 1998 in northern Washington State. It was a wedding for her youngest sister, Nina. I also met her oldest sister Gray, and her son Tad, brother Ian and another sister Jan. Jan was also working in the film industry, from what I understand. I met Meg's son, who was in the service at the time. Chris Star, I believe was his name, and he was in his early twenties then.
My ex-boyfriend was invited since he knew the Fosters when he was growing up in Middlebury, Vermont. He had dated Nina Foster when they were in high school together. Meg was very friendly and down to Earth and a real person. When Dan and I arrived, she was washing the exterior of her sister's house, since the wedding was being held there in the next couple of days. She also worked hard to make the decoration nice for the arbors outside. All down with locally grown flowers from the property. It was a great experience meeting her.

Hi. I just met Meg Foster two days ago by chance in a store. I recognized her immediately (those eyes). We are about the same age. She was one of the most kind, nice, funny and generous-of-spirit people I've met in a long time. I had always liked her acting, so I was pleasantly surprised when the real Meg was so open and available and, as everyone else says, "down to earth". She gave all her attention to me for quite awhile while I blabbered on and on. She was very patient and made me feel perfectly comfortable. It was an "upper" of a day for me. Carol, November 2007
What a great surprise this is. I happened to be talking to my oldest son Jeff who lives just outside of LA last night and asked him if he had ever heard of Meg Foster. He went on line and found this website and emailed it to me. What a delight it is to be able to see her in these film photos after not seeing her for 41 years. Meg and I went to a high school called Rogers Hall together for three years in Lowell, MA. Unfortunately the school closed down in the early 70's so we lost track of most of our classmates until the computer came into being. Slowly we are tracking down our friends. I wish there was a way to connect somehow with Meg to let her know of this June's reunion in N.H.
After reading everyone's great experiences with her it enabled me to get to know her better after all these years. She was definately down to earth and way ahead of the times as they were for us in mid 60's. Just loved hearing about her gentle, open, caring thoughtful ways continuing on in her life. She has so much to offer. Unfortunately I didn't really know Meg that well but I did enjoy watching her perform in the plays at school. I have always wondered if she had continued to act after her movie 'The Scarlet Letter'. I am especially pleased to see that she has continued to be involved in the films, there are so many I never knew about. I am proud of her that she never gave up her dream.
What a wonderful blessing to have this encouraging way of nurturing her on in her acting and in who she is. Do tell her Caney says hello and that I am really proud of her.

I met Meg in 1991 at my brother's wedding in LA. I didn't know who she was until she told me she was in "The Emerald Forest". We danced, had a glass of wine and talked about living in Vermont; she had spent some time living near my hometown. She was very friendly and humble, with a good sense of humor. Her eyes were very striking, but she didn't look or act like a "star" at all; she was without makeup. Benjamin, July 2006
I met Meg Foster in the fall of 1979. I was 16. She was filming the movie "Carny" in Savannah, GA. My friend, Janet, and I were extras in the carnival scene. And I'd been a fan of hers since seeing her in the "Scarlet Letter" in school. Anyway, I bought her a poster of a cat hanging on a limb and a paperback entitled "Savannah". We managed to get them to her and then get invited to hang with her the next day. And we did, all day. We met her son and Jodie Foster. We hung out in her trailer and had lunch with the cast. She was so incredibly nice. After our great day on the set she even drove us home. (We sat in the back, because her son refused to give up the front seat.)
I saw her again, nine years later in Los Angeles. I'd moved there and went to see her in the play, "Three Sisters". I saw her on the stairs after the performance, but didn't say anything. She smiled at me and I thought I saw recognition, but I just smiled back and left. Maybe one day, I'll see her again.

It was so cool. It was back in 1990 when she was filming "Relentless 2: Dead On". My mom, my brother and I had just moved out to California and ended up living in a hotel for about two months. One day my older brother and I came home to find a movie being filmed at the hotel. It was so exciting, I remember it like it was yesterday. We also found out there was another movie being filmed behind the house at an apartment complex -- it was called "Nickels and Dimes" and starred C. Thomas Howell -- so it was quite the welcome to California. Anyways, my brother and I decided to talk to someone about the movie being filmed at our hotel. That's when we met Kirsten, the Executive Producer (or something like that), and she was really nice. We talked with her for a long while and she gave us a tour of the set. We met a couple more cast members and crew on our tour, which lead us to one of the rooms upstairs, where we met Meg Foster.
Oh my God, she was so beautiful in person, her eyes are just amazing, and she turned out to be one of the nicest people I ever met. We walked into the room, and she was sitting up on the bed relaxing. There were other people in the room, but all I can remember is her. She took time to spend chatting with us for a very long time. By the time our visit was over we had not only made a new friend, we also got autographs and her mailing address. However, we moved a few more times in the next six months after that, and somewhere along the way my brother lost her address before we had the chance to write her. I was so bummed about that, but to this day I feel honored to have had the pleasure and experience. But every now and then I wonder if she ever thought of us or remembered us again.

My wife and I met Meg at a unique shop in La Conner, Washington yesterday. We chatted for a while and she was very friendly. She was a very down to earth lady. I had seen her in many roles over the years, and always was intrigued by her sparkling eyes. I hope she continues to act, and spend time in La Conner, which we enjoy visiting.

I met Meg Foster about two weeks ago in the small town where I live. Today I met her again. She is absolutely one of the most beautiful woman I have ever met. And the most warm and caring lady I ever hope to meet. She just rediates warmth. Her eyes are beyond description. Her birthday is the same date in May as mine, but, alas, 19 years later. A truly wonderful lady. Doug, November 2004
I had the singular pleasure last night of accidentally meeting Ms. Foster at the Festival of the Andalusian Horse here in the Tacoma, WA area. She is, I can tell you, one of the loveliest, most gracious, and unpretentious people I've ever met. Her beauty is even more stunning in person, and she is gentle, well- spoken and graceful. She was magical in her kindness and sensitivity to a total stranger who happens to be disabled. She was helping out one of the vendors at the horse show, and I came up in my wheelchair, not realizing initially who she was, just to ask if she might think my motorized wheelchair might bother the horses if I was to take it through the barn. She assured me that it would not, and was most welcoming and kind. I was struck by her eyes and her beautiful face, and said to myself, "WHO IS THIS LADY? I KNOW HER!" Throughout the horse show, I thought about her, and then, when we were going back after the show and through the barn again, she came and asked me how I liked the show, and I told her it was beautiful. She asked me about myself, found out I am a painter, and we discussed art and horses and more. She took my hand, and I asked her name. She said only "Meg". Then I knew her! I said, "Meg Foster? The marvelous actress?" I felt so silly, because I've watched and marveled at her work for years. She was just so gracious! We spoke some more, then I left the barn to come home, so impressed with this great and singularly talented lady! What a gift she is to us...both as a great performing artist, and as the warmest and kindest of human beings! I'll never forget meeting her for as long as I live. Katie, August 2004
