She's been a star in Hollywood and has become an idol to many people around the world. Though so, still actress Jodie Foster considers education as a significant part of her life. And she proves it when on Monday May 15th, 2006 she received an honorary doctor of arts degree.

What is far more interesting is when the Oscar-winning actress ending her address with the chorus of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" from "8 Mile," the semi-autobiographical 2002 film in which he starred.
