Golden Globes

Did Ricky Gervais

Just Out Jodie Foster?

Ricky Gervais basically called Jodie Foster a lesbian at the Golden Globes tonight.

It all went down during the opening monologue, when Gervais said he had been forbidden from discussing anything related to Mel Gibson, including his recent flick, "The Beaver" ... directed by Foster.

Gervais then joked about "Jodie Foster's 'Beaver'" ... saying, "I haven't seen it myself. I've spoken to a lot of guys here, they haven't seen it either. That doesn't mean it's not any good."

Foster -- who was in the crowd -- didn't appear to be too upset by the comment. She's never publicly discussed her sexual orientation.

So we gotta ask ...

No offense but does it really matter what her sexual preference is..... She is a great actor, producer....etc... Who cares which way she goes.....

He didn't say anything out of line... He never even technically said anything about her being a lesbian. He just said that not many men in that room had seen her naked.
Stop looking for over reactions.

TMZ is working collectively with Google and they use the most sensationalized titles to garner hits and stuff people full of adverts.

Like it's a big surprise. Who cares if she's gay. (And this coming from a conservative.)

Hey TMZ - where have you been for the past 20 years?
It's common knowledge that Jodie Foster is a lesbian.

Sometimes I just don't know about you guys...The last thing that was thought of in our house was sexual orientation...Sounded like a good Beaver Joke to us.

Is it so disgusting to give two blacks an award on the same award show in this day an time. I am saying this for many, many others that Davis should have won for The Help also, oh but that would have made two blacks get an award for the same movie and that is against the LAW in Mississippi.

Is this TMZ writer who doesn't know that Jodie Foster is already out the same who didn't know who Moon Unit Zappa is?
