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 ...

Jodie was caught on camera actually laughing at the Joke, Jodie already outted her self about a year ago at a small awards ceremony where I believe she thanked her partner and even mentioned her name.

Jodie always has been and always will be...A CLASS ACT

Oh, give me a break TMZ. You're one of the most shameless, unabashedly uncouth websites on the Internet and you're questioning Gervais? You post Zooey Deeesha(however the hell you spell her name)'s financial records for God's sake. I love you, but why the double-standard?

Jodie had outed herself a few years ago. Why does TMZ consider this news again??

I think it is pretty much a well known fact in Hollywood who actually is gay and who isn't. Probably the only ones still in the dark are Kelly Preston and Katie Holmes.

This was a classic "double entendre", as everything Gervais said could apply to Foster's movie "The Beaver", with Gibson.

i don't know how you get lesbian out of that. The joke depends on no one having sen "it". His specifying guys means that's who he would expect to have seen it - so he thinks she's straight. That said, to imagine there is anything but a joke here is foolish. No hidden meaning no coded message.

She actually came out when she recognized her then-partner Cydney Bernard at Hollywood Reporter's "Women in Entertainment" event in 2007.
