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 ...

Gays are more sensitive than black people when it comes to jokes or speaking about them in general.

I think the way Jodie handled it was great. Just play along. It seemed everybody in that room went, so that's how you handle a joke directed at you with class.

Is this news? Ms. Foster has been out for some time. Not bixsexual either.

Who cares if she is a lesbian? She is talented and obviously has a great sense of humor... she is beautiful and works hard, she is human and should be appreciated for who she is, not who she has sex with.

Foster's sexuality was about as secret as Harvey's. It doesn't matter who two or more adults opt to bed down with. Judge people on their acts, not their sexuality.

Who gives a damn? Jodie is a great person, a great actress and a great director. Why should I care about her sexual orientation? When the hell are we going to GROW UP in this country and learn to mind our own $^#% business?

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.

I must have missed something. I thought Jodie Foster has been out for a while.
