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."

I really question the emotional stability of someone who goes on stage for an award acceptance speech for a job well done, and all she talks about is her coming out as a lesbian! And then she goes on to say how she fights and defends her private life!

... the expression on Mel's face was pretty extreme when she brought his name up towards the end of her speech. Like maybe he thought she was gonna come clean and announce he's the bio-daddy of the eldest son? They've got the same nose.

Of course TMZ would spin the speech of an excited and honored woman bizarre. She's well aware that she unofficially came out long ago, and when she speaks in length about how Hollywood is and how privacy used to mean something, she's breaking news on TMZ, and falsely referenced,I find that sad, having taste and journalistic integrity isn't exclusive to major news outlets.

Hey Lohan, it's known as actual acting talent.


Depends on whatever. Lohans been acting since 3 months old or 3 years old depends on what current lies Lindsay, Dina are saying.

People have hounded her to "come out" for the good of Lesbians everywhere. Privacy should mean something, even for celebrities. Now they will hound Queen Latifah more then they already have. .

Dear Jody, we don't care if your a lesbian. It's your life. But please don't quit making movies. You make the best movies ever. Your pick and choose scripts make us happy. I'm pretty sure many agree with me. I enjoyed your speech and please get back to making great films.
