    Because her box office draw went down when fans found out she is a Lesbian.

      As did Rock Hudson after he admitted being Gay.

    She is working on a new film Prisoner 760.

    I rather enjoyed Hotel Artemis an unusual film with a very different portrayal than her usual characters.

    She's been doing more directing than acting in the last few years.

    She got old and uninteresting anymore?

    You know everyone is beautiful or interesting for a litle while, then people get wrinkly and crabby and that was that. Its life.

    In the 2010s, Foster has focused on directing and taken fewer acting roles.[141] In February 2011, she hosted the 36th César Awards in France, and the following month released her third feature film direction, The Beaver (2011), about a depressed man who develops an alternative personality based on a beaver hand puppet.[142] It starred Maverick co-star Mel Gibson and featured herself, Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence in supporting roles as his family.[143] Foster called its production "probably the biggest struggle of my professional career", partly due to the film's heavy subject matter but also due to the controversy that developed around Gibson as he was accused of domestic violence and making anti-semitic, racist, and sexist statements.[141][144] The film received mixed reviews,[145][146] and failed the box office, largely due to the controversy surrounding its star.[147][148][149] In 2011, Foster also appeared as part of an ensemble cast with John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz in Roman Polanski's comedy Carnage, focusing on middle-class parents whose meeting to settle an incident between their sons descends into chaos. It premiered at the 68th Venice International Film Festival in September 2011 to mainly positive reviews and earned Foster a Golden Globe for Best Actress nomination.[150]

    In January 2013, Foster received the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th Golden Globe Awards.[151] Her next film role was playing Secretary of Defense Delacourt opposite Matt Damon in the dystopian film Elysium (2013), which was a box office success.[152] She also returned to television directing for the first time since the 1980s, directing the episodes "Lesbian Request Denied" (2013) and "Thirsty Bird" (2014) for Orange Is the New Black, the episode "Chapter 22" (2014) for House of Cards.[153] and the second episode of the fourth season "Arkangel" for Black Mirror. "Lesbian Request Denied" brought her a Primetime Emmy Award nomination, and the two 2014 episodes earned her two nominations for a Directors Guild of America Award.[154][155] In 2014, she also narrated the episode "Women in Space" for Makers: Women Who Make America, a PBS documentary series about women's struggle for equal rights in the United States. The following year, Foster received the Laura Ziskin Lifetime Achievement Award at the Athena Film Festival,[156] and directed her next film, Money Monster, which stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts, and was released in May 2016.[157]

    She's been in many movies.  Perhaps you've just not been to see any?
