Jodie Foster accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Golden Globes last night and came out to everyone during her acceptance speech. Jodie Foster is gay? Shocking, just, shocking. Though that wasn’t the biggest news of the night. It was that everyone thought she was retiring from acting which she isn’t.
“I could never stop acting. You’d have to drag me behind, like, a team of horses,” the Silence of the Lambs star insisted. “No, I’m not retiring from acting. And, you know, I’d like to be directing tomorrow . . . I’m actually more into it than I have ever been.” Foster, who has been acting since she was a toddler, explained that the point of her speech was “that people change. Change is important. And, you know, hopefully I’ll be doing different things than I did when I was three years old and six years old and ten years old and 20 years old . . . My work is evolving.” Us Weekly
Anyway, the point of Jodie’s speech was less a coming out and more of a rally for privacy for celebrities. Granted, that’s not going to happen. You can’t expect to make millions and not have people curious as to why they and everyone else are giving you these millions.
