Jodie Foster’s Golden Globe Speech
So Jodie Foster came out again, kinda.
Accepting the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, Foster spoke obliquely about her relationship with Cydney Bernard, her former partner of 20 years with whom she has two sons. Foster called her “my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski buddy, consiglieri, [and] most beloved BFF of 20 years.
“I am so proud of our modern family,” she added,” as her two boys in the audience smiled.
The 50-year-old Academy Award-winner (for “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The Accused”) has always been protective of her private life, and though she has not hidden her relationship with Bernard or her sexual orientation, she has not allowed it to be fodder for interviews.
