I love Jodie Foster....she's so smart, and gorgeous, and a terrific actress.  She's one of those rare celebrities that I actually admire.

It's weird, this year was the first time I had ever heard the rumors that she was a lesbian.  I am so oblivious to everything.  I guess it's amazing how private she has been able to keep her life.

I know!  I was thinking that too, Amanda!  I mean, does she ever go out in public with her partner?  I feel like a picture would have been captured at SOME point.

It's about friggin time!!! 

I think it's sort of like Rosie (though of course, our darling Jodie is not obnoxious!) in that the community has always known, and she's often seen out and about with her partner, but she's just never been willing to go public.

I'm glad she did and she did it in a normal way.  Not screaming "OMG I'm gay!" but instead thanking her partner, regardless of their gender/sexuality because it doesn't really matter.

Ok, silly question, but I thought she was married to a man?  Not that that makes one straight, it's just that when she thanked "Cydney", I got confused, which, granted, is not hard to do some days......

I don't think she's ever been married to a guy....

To the best of my knowledge, she's never been married.  I know she has two young sons, but she's never said anything about a father.  One of her sons names is Charles, which I think is so cute....Charles Foster.

OMG!!!!! Jodie Foster is 45????

Huh, what do you mean that wasn't the point?

Apologies to everyone who thinks all gay celebrities should be out and public, but I just love celebrities who keep their private lives private.  Robert Redford and Jodie Foster, anyone else whose personal relationships stay that way, has all my respect.  Gay or straight is irrelevant in this case.

Kari,

I agree with you up to a point.  I'm all for privacy.  But if you love someone and don't feel you can express that love outwardly to other people - I can only imagine that is really, really difficult.  Who knows how long Jodie and Cydney have been together, but it sounds like Jodie just couldn't keep it in anymore.  I applaud her for that. 

I sure hope I live to see a day where none of this matters anymore.

Ok, well I clearly have her confused for someone else.  Thanks.  Anyway, she's hot.  Maybe it's her intelligence, but she's very attractive.

L has a really cool one too, that says something like "1-20-09 The End of An Error".  I have been waiting SO LONG for 2008 to get here.....I don't think I have ever been as excited about an election as I am the upcoming one.  :D

I just googled 1-20-09 and came up with several web pages with all sorts of goodies.

I'm a huge Jodie fan and have been since I was a kid.  If you have ever seen interviews with her, she's just an incredibly private person, which I think is pretty cool, in a day and age where the American public worships celebs that hop beds like bunnies, and publicize the same.

I'd like to see her do more acting along the lines of  The Accused, Nell and SOTL.  Her more recent films haven't been of the best caliber, IMO (Panic Room, Flight Plan).  The Brave One looks pretty good.

I agree Jodie is a total hottie!

The Brave One was an excellent movie!
