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 ...

She's gay & everyone knows she's gay - he didn't out her. And it was a mild joke, not a big deal. Good grief.

First if you watched the show you would have seen Jodi laughing her ass off and B the staff member who put this out..lol little pun there... needs to go back to coffee duty. Jodi has never hidden that fact, most just assumed she was straight. Gee don't tell anyone those were her kids, it will be another breaking story.

TMZ, seriously??? Jodie Foster's been out for years and has discussed her long-term relationship plenty of times. Type in "jodie foster relationship" in Google and see what happens.

Way to promote gay-panic, you freaks.

Can you please stop quoting comedians in the middle of an act and talk about offense or "crossing the line." It is an act.

Foster's sexuality is pretty much assumed to be lesbian after all these years.

Gervais's "joke" crossed the line not because of trying to out her, but because it was just vulgar and sophomoric.

The reaction from some of the comments goes to show how Americans are afraid of the truth. She is who she is get over it. It wasn't rude. He was just pointing out the obvious.

Later in the broadcast, Ricky insinuated that Rock Hudson and Liberace may have been gay. Check your sources again TMZ, you may have another scoop!
