Jodie Foster moves the Golden Globes audience to tears as she comes out as gay
Jodie Foster was the talk of the Golden Globes after an emotional speech while accepting the Cecil B DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.
The usually fiercely private actress, 50, surprised the audience as she touched on her sexuality, her rarely-seen sons, Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, and her ailing mother, who suffers from dementia.
She also made a moving public tribute to her former partner Cydney Bernard, who bowed her head with emotion as she supported Foster from her seat beside their two children.
Poor Mel Gibson lent his support.
She received a boost from her close friend Mel Gibson, who offered a wolf-whistle from her table in the audience.
She has two children who she raises with the idea they don’t have a father but another mother. But she and the pseudo mother are no longer together.
‘Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family, our amazing sons, Charlie and Kit who are my reason to breathe and to evolve. … Boys, in case you didn’t know it, this song, like all of this, this song is for you.’
The father is rumored to be Randy Stone, a man who was himself married but later came out as gay.
But speaking to MailOnline, the Reverend Beverly Bates, 75, revealed that her son, the late Hollywood producer Randy Stone, who is rumoured to be the boys’ real father, treated them as if they were his own.
Jodie Foster was herself raised in a lesbian home.
The actress - whose received two Best Actress Oscars for her role as a rape victim in the 1989 film The Accused and as a FBI trainee in the 1991 smash hit The Silence of the Lambs - was brought up in a lesbian family.
Her mother, film producer Brandy Almond, and her father, retired air force colonel Lucius Foster, broke up before her birth and her mother later lived with another woman.
Jodie Foster was raised in a broken household where her mother lived as a lesbian. She used a man, possibly one who himself turned gay in later years, to conceive two children. She then breaks up with the children’s pseudo mother and then has relationships with other women. Jodie Foster is actually a poster child for why this is wrong and the terrible state of our society. The worst aspect is that this is celebrated by others. Bad things have always happened but people in the past were smart enough to not cheer evil.
