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 has so much going on it was obvious with her speech. Mother with Dementia, a break up, moving on from the industry. All while receiving an award. She is a graceful women. We all should have what she has.

All she had to do was thank her ex-partner (as she did) and answer any further questions in a magazine or tv interview. That was really unnecessary what she did.

Shame on you, TMZ! Jodie Foster made an eloquent and intelligent speech this evening at the Golden Globe Awards. Perhaps the person who wrote this piece is unaware of what a powerful and moving acceptance speech should resemble! OH THE SHAME IS ON YOU!

Jodie speech was not about coming out ,no matter how much the other pervs wish . It was clearly about going forward ,and being thankful . She clearly chastised the ones how seem to have to tell us things about there life ,and people don t want to know . Privacy means Privacy!

She's an odd bird. Extremely intelligent, LOVES loonies Mel and Robert Downey. She chooses the MOST public of careers yet continually moans about the loss of privacy. And the gay thing? We all knew YEARS AGO. I am surprised that she mentioned her former partner- the woman Jodie dumped for someone she's not even with now. Either way, she's very talented, but the speech was awful.
