Psych Central

Although she seems to have been openly gay in her private life for years, Jodie Foster has only recently publicly came out, in some quasi-official capacity.

Recently, as in last Sunday night at the Golden Globes.

Foster, who just turned 50 and is perhaps best known for films like The Silence of the Lambs and Maverick, was honored with the Cecille B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. During her acceptance speech she talked a lot about her career and family

However, while reactions to celebrities coming out publicly are generally pretty enthusiastic, not all reactions to Foster’s speech have been as favorable.

  1. I am sure, she garbled her message because of nerves,and what she was trying to ay was this: I’m alone, and there’s someone that deserves mention becasue of the good she has done in my life. This means my secret is out, so paparazzi, you can stop stalking me, now.Nothing to see here. While this announcement may end my career, it needs to be made. Somethings are more important than money, and Sydney was it. Guess it’s a life on reality TV for me now as ‘the lesbian widow’ or something.
