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."

After these deviants come out I can never watch them in a movie and believe they are "straight." I wish they ALL would just shut up and do their job.

Certainly deserving of that award. Even with The Beaver on her résumé. But why "come out"? Everyone already knows which team she's on.

I liked it!!!! I think more actresses should heed her admonishment about privacy. She is a brilliant talent who has never been one to speak about her personal life but I believe she has to acknowledge this part of her life in order to 1. Teach her children to own who they are and never be ashamed and 2. To just end the whole question so people could get over it and just let her be.

This woman has shown that you can be successful and not have to blare from the rooftops about your private life. Pure class. I think she was nervous about what she was going to say and let that show. Many young artists could learn so much from her.
