Jodie Foster 'comes out' during Golden Globes speech
Actress Jodie Foster is the hot talk on Twitter and Facebook after her speech at the Golden Globes, during which she publicly referenced her sexual orientation for the first time.
"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 and co-workers and 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 and a prime-time reality show," she said.
The actress-director received the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Her publicist said Monday that Foster is not retiring from acting, despite confusing comments she made toward the end of Sunday night's speech.
