Foster played Clarice Starling in the 1991 thriller, which also starred Sir Anthony Hopkins. 

“Where did the time go? I’ve been doing a few things to celebrate with Tony,” said Foster. “We both have this feeling of sharing this extraordinary moment where we were both at our best.”

Although both Foster and Hopkins received Academy Awards for their respective roles in “Silence of the Lambs”, Foster explained how she sometimes fears that her performance might have peaked with the film.
