KEANU REEVES And CHLOE MORETZ recreated a famous scene from Martin Scorsese‘s iconic 1976 film “Taxi Driver” in a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. Ironically, 14-year-old “Kick Ass” star Chloe is about the same age Jodi Foster was when she played a teenage prostitute opposite Robert de Niro in the Oscar-nominated film.
The Harper’s Bazaar November issue featured a spread paying homage to Scorsese‘s landmark films, including Kate Bosworth channeling Michelle Pfeiffer in “Age of Innocence” and Emily Blunt doing an Ellen Burstyn in “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”…
But entertainment news was particularly impressed with how Chloe and “The Matrix” star Keanu posed for the haunting scene between depressed insomniac Robert de Niro‘s Vietnam-vet-turned-taxi-driver character and Jodie Foster‘s jaded prepubescent prostitute:
The film won Scorsese the Palm d’Or at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival and is among the American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest American Movies ever made.
With Moretz‘s critically acclaimed performances in her recent films, such as “Let Me In,” maybe Oscar winner Jodie Foster‘s luck is sure to rub off on her.
“There’s an aura about him,”
Moretz says of Reeves
“He knows how to get that thing that makes it a Scorsese film; it’s completely unspoken. But I haven’t seen ‘Taxi Driver’ yet. My mom won’t let me watch it.”
Which surprises the heck out of us because Chloe has the aura down pat.
And Keanu? Let’s wish him a lot of unspoken good fortune on his role as an outcast samurai in the coming 2012 film, “47 Ronin”.
