jodie foster comes out?

Perez Hilton is reporting that Jodie Foster came out the other night in a acceptance speech she gave while recieving an award. But no other news outlet is reporting on this admission. Either way, I’m happy for her and hopefully this will be the beginning of her using her celebrity to champion for gay rights.

Here’s what he said:

Jodie Foster sent shockwaves through Hollywood this week by publicly acknowledging her same-sex lover of almost 20 years for the first time ever.

The actress was presented with a leadership award by the Hollywood Reporter at a Power 100 breakfast on Tuesday.

When accepting her award, Jodie thanked “my beautiful Cydney who sticks with me through all the rotten and the bliss.”

Cydney is Cydney Bernard (pictured above), Foster’s longtime partner and co-mother of their children.

In her speech, Jodie went on to characterize herself as a “professional” and a “gentleman,” someone that’s managed to have a 42-year career in Hollywood and come out relatively sane.

Congratulations, Jodie!
