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 ...

I thought she was already out. If not then it is one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood.

I felt bad for her two young sons who were there with her.

The show was B-O-R-I-N-G! This "risque" comment was about the only thing semi-scandalous about the show. Okay, Clooney's reference to Michael Fassbender and being able to play golf with his hands behind his back came in a close second. Had to watch to know...But this years show was boring. The Oscars have Billy back...yay!

Didn't see it. We don'*****ch the Globes because of Gervais. He's a lowlife whose "humor" is as low as he is. Too bad award shows feel they have to pander to simple minds to get an audience and bring on people like that creep to do it.
It's not a matter of whether Foster is gay or not. It's a matter of showing just a little class; Gervais has none. People should really pull their heads out of staring at their phones and reality shows and realize what passes for entertainment these days is pretty pathetic.

I think she doesn't address it because she feels it's irrelevant as an actress. She's an extremely private person and therefore doesn't want to be a spokesperson for the LGBT. However, everyone knows she is and it's no big deal. Her sexuality doesn't define who she is. As for the joke, she's friends with Mel and Mel is known for his obnoxious jokes, so I'm sure she's immune.

I say yes, only because Jodie had her sons with her and Ricky could clearly see her kids with her tonight. You can't say something like that in front of the kids.

Jodie is a good sport. It's good Ricky has been integrated in the Hollywood mentality to get the stuffiness out. You only live once be able to laugh at yourself.
