Jodie Foster gave a very emotional and long speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night after receiving her Cecil B. Demille Award for lifetime achievement. It wasn’t clear whether it was a coming out speech or she was hinting at retirement. Twitter and Facebook lit up with people speculating what was going on.
The actress kept talking about the lack of privacy in Hollywood today.
“Privacy — maybe someday in the future, people will look back and remember how beautiful it once was,” Foster said. “I have given everything out there, from the time I was three years old. That is reality enough.”
“I am not Honey Boo Boo Child,” she added. “It’s just that from now on, I may be holding a different talking stick,” Foster said, bringing many in the audience to tears.
Jodie first had everyone thinking she was going to make a huge announcement about her sexuality. Instead she said she was single, adding, “I already did my coming out in the stone age.”
But she did specifically thank her ex-partner Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two kids. Both of her sons were in the audience.
It was a weird speech, yet memorable one that people will be talking about for days, weeks and years to come.
