A funny thing happened at the Golden Globe Awards. Jodie Foster finally came out.
After she was awarded the Cecile B. DeMille Award for outstanding contribution to entertainment she gave one of the most emotionally honest & eloquent acceptance speeches in Golden Globes history.
Foster stated, “So while I’m here being all confessional, I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never really been able to air in public. So, a declaration that I’m a little nervous about but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now, huh Jennifer? But I’m just going to put it out there, right? Loud & proud, right? So I’m going to need your support on this. I am single. Yes I am, I am single. No, I’m kidding — but I mean I’m not really kidding, but I’m kind of kidding. I mean, thank you for the enthusiasm. Can I get a wolf whistle or something? [Audio is silent for seven seconds] be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age, in those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family & co-workers & then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met. But now I’m told, apparently that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance & a prime-time reality show.” Of course what to know is what happened during those seven seconds NBC decided to mute her audio. But just think what a fabulous role model she will continue to be for out LGBT community...:)
