Actress and director Jodie Foster will be honored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Foster, 49, is a two-time Golden Globe and Academy Award winner for her leading actress turns in 1988's "The Accused," and 1991's "Silence of the Lambs."

"Jodie is a multi-talented woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career," HFPA President Aida Takla-O'Reilly said in a statement. “Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She’s truly one of a kind.”

The Cecil B. DeMille Award winner is chosen by the board of directors for the foreign press association and is given to individuals who have impacted the world of entertainment. Previous winners include Morgan Freeman, Bette Davis, Walt Disney, Audrey Hepburn, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg and Barbra Streisand.

Foster has acted in more than 40 films, beginning her career at the tender age of 3 when she appeared in a Coppertone commercial. Her other acting credits include "Taxi Driver," "Nell," "Little Man Tate" and "Carnage." She will next be seen onscreen in 2013 in the futuristic thriller "Elysium" with Matt Damon.

Her directing credits also include "Little Man Tate," "The Beaver" and "Home for the Holidays."

The Award will be presented at the 70th annual Golden Globe ceremony on Jan. 13, 2013.

The Golden Globes will air live on NBC  with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting.
