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 ...

Most lesbians, and I'm sure Jodie is one of them, have a good sense of humor. She'll probably be laughing at that one for a while.

Gervais is an atheist arsehole, yes that's redundant.

Nobody should expect anything nice to come out of his pie-hole.

If the show aired from England, Rick would be much freer. Understand that he was muted; therefore, he couldn't be as funny as last year.
Last year, he had movie greats like Robert DeNiro laughing at his jokes.
But movie insiders were put out of their comfort zone by Gervais. So they struck back, because of their fragile egos.
It's supposed to be a warm and fuzzy event where people kiss each others arses, ya know?
Didn'*****ch the show because in all the history of awards shows, only one African American actress won a Best Actress award at the oscars. And isn't this a preview of the oscars?
Many actresses have more oscars than all the African American actresses in history, combined!!!

TMZ,

I thought it was common knowledge that Jodie Foster was a lesbian. In fact, weren't you the ones who broke the news like five years ago?

I don't have a problem with it! In no way does he say anything bad about her lifestyle.

Gervais is a *****! He had a golden opportunity to take a shot at Jessica Biel, who everybody knows is a lesbian and that her engagement to Timberlake is a cover, but he pussed out. Foster is old news.

Nope, she's 100% lesbian. Who doesn't know THAT? She's been out for years. Ricky did nothing out of the ordinary. You'd think she was Cary Grant or something.

first of all get your facts straight. she came out back in 2007 when she thanked her girlfriend of 14 years at an awards banquet, and it's well known they they are both raising their two sons. So she was not "outed." She is just private about her life and doesn't discuss her personal life like many actors, but because she is gay it's a bigger deal if you don't publicly talk about it because people assume you are in the closet and ashamed. Stupid. Gay or straight you have the right to not discuss it. You shouldn't be forced to announce your sexuality no matter what.

TMZ = As****. I'd suggest firing the whole crew and starting over. The person who 'reported' this and all the other fools who didn't stop him. This information is old...old old old. Find new information. Newsflash - She's gay. She outed hersel****es ago.

WRONG.

Written in 2007 about Jodie Foster going public. You desperately need a researcher.

Um, Gervais didn't "out" her. She came out publicly a few years back, but she's just private about her relationship. Gervais in NO WAY crossed the line because he didn't out her at all and regardless of what people may think of Gervais' comedy, it's a line he would never cross.
