Jodie Foster

Kinda Comes Out

at The Golden Globes

Jodie Foster
said it wasn't a "coming out" speech, but after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes ... the legendary actress sort of did just that. 

In a bizarre, rambling and aggressive speech, Foster told the crowd she was single (*wink, wink) and talked about trying to live a private life ... one which has never involved having her own reality show ... or talking about her sexual orientation. 

Then, Jodie kinda sorta did an about-face, saying she did her "coming out 1,000 years ago" and went on to thank her ex-partner and co-parent, Cydney Bernard.

It's a speech that really just defies explanation, so just watch the video and piece it together for yourself.

By the way ... best line of the night was the last, when Amy Poehler, with Tina Fey by her side, ended the show by saying, "Thank you very much. We're going home with Jodie Foster."

She's out. She's been out. She thanked her partner at an earlier award. Apparently there is NO INSTITUTIONAL MEMORY in Hollywood, just like everywhere else.

By a 1000 years ago I think she meant 2008.

This is going to reall f*ck John Hinckley Jr up even more. "WHAT!! I shot the President over a Lesbian I never had a chance with???" Meanwhile Reagan is laughing in his grave.

On a seperate note...Tell us something we didn't already know.

Her speech was so rambling and stupid, I went and scanned some do***ents. When I got back some people in the audience were crying so that speech had to really suck. Never knew she was lez, not that it matters but I guess it's cool she's comfortable enough with herself to be honest about it.

She got an award for 50 years in the biz and gave a stupid rambling speech like that.... tisk tisk.

Well I like her gown. You know how a person looks really good, model-ish and has your attention right up until the moment they open their mouth to speak...yeah...it was one of those nights.

It's not that it defies explanation, but rather requires someone smarter than us to do the explaining.

Best line of the evening? Not even close: On Kathryn Bigelow: “When it comes to torture, I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

Jodie Foster came out already. That said, can I go home with her too, please? Tina Fey is welcome to come along.

All comments thus far are bang on. Sad that in 2013 we cant all be fully open and honest about who we are, how we feel and not be judged for it.
