jodie foster how to train your dragon premiere gi Jodie Foster: Teen boy accuses Oscar winner of mall attackL.A’s The Grove is kind of like the Disneyland of malls. You truly want to believe that adorable little forest creatures are operating it from behind-the-scenes and nothing bad could possibly ever happen there.

One certainly wouldn’t think Oscar winner Jodie Foster would go after a 17-year-old boy who dared approach her for a photograph.

Yet, that’s what’s being alleged by one young man’s family.

The unnamed boy’s father tells RadarOnline that on May 29, his son was on the way to the movies with his girlfriend when he saw Foster in the mall’s parking garage and asked if he could get a photo.

]]>tells People that the police report is a “complete fabrication” and that the teen was actually a professional paparazzo who had been following Foster and her two sons — Charles and Kit — for awhile. “He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens,” the rep says. “He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet.” Follow Zap2it on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook  for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales.
