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 ...

This is seriously a dumb "joke" - "I've asked a lot of men and they haven't seen it either"? Really?
Ricky Gervais is dumb, dumb, dumb.

Ok this isn't 1990, we don't have to do a press conference to 'out' ourselves.

Jodie Foster's two thumbs up was actually a highlight of the evening. She wasn't outed. This is Hollywood ladies and gents. C'mon now. Who even cares? Everyone simply respects Jodie Foster for the talent she is and has always been. Her thumbs up not only showed respect for the platform, the event, Gervais, and the industry, but it also showed the "lady" is exactly that...a bright and charming lady. Hell even Johnny Depp rolled with the punches last night

If she wasn't upset then it's no big deal end of story. There is only one person who can say if he went to far and she didn't leave him alone he's a great funny man.

Old Harv sees homophobia everywhere. He's like the velvet Eugene McCarthy. Don't think Foster is too worried bout this. Why is Harv?

Jodie has been living out for over a decade, she just dosn't feel the need to announce it in a press conference. If she was cool with his joke then this is a non-story.

Have I gotten too drunk and gone back a year or two in time? Didn't she already come out and have a girlfriend and all that? I thought it was common bloody knowledge that she's gay. But it p****s me off when other people out gays. It's not their blood business to do that. Wankers.

Other than Ricky barbing Johnny Depp for the Tourist again, that was the highlight of the show. The HFPA limited Ricky's time on stage much more that the past two and he simply wasn't really into it. Why would he even put Kim K in his jokes? Her celebrity comes from being a purple crayon chaser who makes lousy porn vids. He should have saved that one for when he hosts the AVN awards.

Ricky- You either sold out or jumped the shark.

How the hell do you make the leap from no one seeing her beaver to him implying that she's a lesbian? Shake your heads, Harvey and CO.

He isn't saying anything that we don't already know about Jodie Foster. For years it's been known she's gay.
