Guys, I know we are excited that Jodie Foster supposedly came out at the Golden Globes, but she already came out in 2007. She actually gave a moving tribute to her girlfriend. It was a whole thing. It was a whole thing that Jodie Foster came out and revealed her over decade long relationship with her girlfriend Cyndey Bernard in 2007 during a Women in Entertainment breakfast. That was five years ago, in case people were keeping track.
At the time, The Guardian wrote that:
Jodie Foster is a lesbian. This startling piece of news is akin to the shock revelation that Rudolph the Reindeer has a very shiny nose. In other words, if you didn’t already know this, you seriously need to retune your gaydar.
It’s a secret as open as the Grand Canyon that Foster has been stepping out with film producer Cyndey Bernard for years, and that they are raising Foster’s two children together. The surprise is not that Jodie is gay, but that it has taken her so long to say so.
And, again, at that time Lesbian Life wrote that:
“I never thought I’d see this day. Perhaps it was because her children are getting older and she didn’t want them to think there was anything wrong with being gay.
“Perhaps she was simply sick and tired of life in the closet.
“Whatever her reasons, we are pleased that Jodie found the courage to be true to herself.”
All of this is nice! It’s great to be true to who you are, and proud of who you are! However, Jodie Foster already did this years ago. Still a really nice speech, though.
