Jodie Foster made a shocking announcement at the Golden Globes Sunday night after accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award honoring a 50-year career. She came out as single.
The speech, which played with rumors that she is gay, portrayed her deep commitment to privacy.
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, coworkers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her. To everyone she actually met. But now, apparently I’m told, 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. You guys might be surprised, but I’m not Honey Boo Boo child.
