She is fantastic - but I do question her character as she is good friends with the abominable Mel Gibson. How anyone can support that douche is beyond me
The thing with Jodie is, she lives her life out of the spotlight and doesn't involve herself in the Hollywood drama. I'm not defending Mel (although I do think his boozing has a lot to do with his problems) but Jodie knows him and has been friends with him for a long time, and the Mel she knows is obviously different to the Mel we've seen over the last few years. I think she's just a very loyal person, a rarity in that fickle world, standing by her friends through thick and thin, and I admire her for that.
